Real talk.  I have a serious crush on Australia.

That's right.  The whooole thing.

To us in the states, they live in the future.  They have some of the nicest people you will ever meet.  They are swarming with talented creatives.  They have among some of my favorite blogs on the internet... ahem, that's you Jodi, Tim, Kellie, TamaraTricia... (to name just a few!)  And now, made possible from one amazing children's company, I am giving away some seriously can't-miss gear.

It would be impossible for me to name just one thing I loved about Jonah and the Girl and the lovely people behind this project.  Using the words "beautiful simplicity" as their catch cry, this little sister company is the labor of love of husband and wife team Scott and Amy Hawkes.  A story of putting kisses on the feet of little ones, Jonah and the Girl has released its first collection of canvas shoes called 'Bertie', a simple unisex style available in six colors.  Though they've just started taking their first steps, be sure to check back often as they begin expanding to be the first to see when new styles and colors are being offered!

Amy and Scott have been so kind to give away their inaugural and beautifully made product, the Bertie shoe, to two lucky Diapers and Skinny Jeans readers!  I am so thrilled to not only be able to giveaway such a great product and support this stellar group of creatives, but really truly give you all something Sofia loves and I wholeheartedly endorse as a mama.  These shoe are the perfect companion! :)

* *   To enter is simple - all you have to do is be a follower of Diapers and Skinny Jeans, and head on over to Jonah and the Girl and tell me which size and color you would like for your little one!  Please leave me a comment below and don't forget to include your email address and check back to see if you've won!  * *

Want extra entries?  Better your chances by liking Jonah and the Girl on Facebook and/or sharing this post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or your blog.  Winners will be announced in two weeks on Thursday, May 3rd! (entries will be closed 5/3 at 10am CST)

Best of luck!

    @Carrie - Thank you. I finally defaulted back to this because it's just so simple. I change my mind a lot, but I think I'll stick with this for a while... I have OCD when it comes to design.

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…

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…
