Can you believe this is the only photo I have from this past week?  My little Sofia and her wacky hair eating her banana/avocado mixture in her new chair, gosh I love her!  :) I've been taking advantage of the camera I always have with me (my iPhone) and have neglected the blog for Instagram over the last few days and for that I am sorry!  To all my favorite mamabloggers out there I hope you all had the happiest of mothers days.  I unfortunately didn't even get to spend the day with my daughter as I had to work all day, but Erick took me out for a quick dinner afterwards and massaged the heck out of my back when we got home!  Yes!

Things have been SO busy around here, and I thank you all so very much for hanging in here with me!  All this party planning has been making me dizzy, but we're getting there!  Erick and I are also taking our first year wedding anniversary trip this weekend so be prepared for lots of fun travel photos and probably another excursion with Sofia's best baby friend, Violet.  Summer in Chicago is definitely coming and the air is crisp and clear.  My heart is racing with anticipation of all the amazingly fun things we have planned and yet to do!  Can you feel it?  


  1. I adore this photo. Happy Mama's day and Happy 1st wedding anniversary : ) x

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…
