it's officially official.

Thank goodness for iPhones.

Words can't describe the happiness I feel in my heart.  Short, simple, intimate and sweet-- our courthouse wedding was exactly how we had hoped.  Our iPhones captured a few special moments afterwards and I hope soon to be able to post them for you to see.  Time is unfortunately "of the essence" still, as bub's due date is quickly approaching.   So, to any of you feeling left out, shocked, surprised, confused, etc... I understand.  Truly, I do.  And I apologize for that.  Just know that this was the perfect decision for our growing family, and we're happy to have gone about it this way.  

Aside from having a few small get-togethers with our own families to celebrate (SOON!!)  I wanted to let you all know that we also have plans to have a big outside party-rager with food, drinks and dancing as well as having our vows blessed in an actual church sometime next year.  Friends, coworkers, extended family-- I promise to keep you posted.  I'll still wear a pretty white dress.  We'll still get our first dance.  My body won't weigh 188 lbs.  Honestly it does.  I swear I'm carrying a whale.

Anyway, my sincerest thank you goes out to everyone that sent well wishes and congratulations.  I am overwhelmed and overjoyed.  I am still in over my head (help me please!!) with the thank you's from the THREE SHOWERS we've so graciously had, and gifts are still randomly appearing at our doorstep.  I can't believe it!  I've had so much to do that resting has been out of the question, but hopefully all of those cards will be finished up and mailed this week.  (If you're one of the many waiting for a thank you-- I promise it's on its way!  They have all been handmade or illustrated by me, so it's taken more time than I would have liked but I really wanted them to be special.)

All in all, I've found that marriage, and everything that comes along with it, to be an indescribable feeling.  Having so many people that I work with watch this love story of ours unfold in front of them is even cooler!  I am so unbelievably lucky to have found Erick and to continue to share the life we've made together.  And something else that makes me feel even luckier?  Having DOUBLE the amazing family.  How is that even possible!?  I think many people overlook that part of marriage- you get a second family.  And combined, you have one great big support group to lean on and keep you laughing.  I feel so grateful to have been welcomed into the Delarosa family from the start and feel so blessed to be surrounded, doubly, by great people.  (Not to mention being surrounded by great food on both sides) Mmm!!  

Now the next goal?  Dust off that Rosetta Stone.  No way my daughter will be telling secrets about me in spanish to her papa. ;)

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)


And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
