Today, I am home.

I find after traveling, it takes a moment to regroup and accustom yourself to your old surroundings.  When Erick and I arrived last afternoon, the first thing Sofia did was shriek!  She waved her arms up and down and paddled through the air back and forth into her Papa's arms and back to my own.  Though she truly does have the best time with her grandparents, it was such a relief to see that she didn't skip a beat in making us feel secure in our vacation plans.  We've missed her so much.  Today we kept things simple and quiet around the house, reading our favorite books on the lawn with a picnic basket full of blocks.  Life right now is quite possibly the best it's ever been, and I most definitely will be making the outdoor story time something that happens more often around here!

Sofia picked out Violet's borrowed shirt from the wash today!
I think someone misses her playdate buddy.


  1. Those little cheeks! Such a cute homecoming story :)

  2. How gorgeous is she ... and what great welcome home!!

  3. I see some pearly whites! It looks she's getting all of her teeth at once. I hope she is handling the teething well. Olive seemed to get all of her front teeth in within what seemed like a week. She was great with natural teething tablets most of the time but occasionally I would have to give her some baby pain medicine.

    She's such a beautiful baby!
    And welcome home!

  4. Kate. This is wonderful. Sometime the simple moments are the most special.

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.

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…

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…
