I love the way light speckles across our front porch in the evening.

Just as it hits about six or seven at night and the sun slowly begins to make its decent across the sky, we take a few minutes to sit and enjoy the last of the heavy, summer air.  It won't be much longer until our late evenings begin to be lit up by moonlight instead of the sun; the days are much shorter then.  It's still fascinating to me how new things are to Sofia now that she can walk on her own.  Even the sidewalk in front of our house must seem like an infinite road into the glistening golden light-- I want to keep as much of that magic alive as I can.


  1. Beautiful light. And I love her little ponytail! I can't wait till I can do that : ) Jude x

  2. Oh how she has grown, Bella was the same we spent most are afternoons in our front porch (old place) playing with water & just watching her walk.

  3. ...and soon it will be our turn to have light on our front porch at 7pm instead of battening down the hatches at 5. I can't wait. Those dying days of summer always make me feel a little bit sad that it's almost all over again.

    And I don't know if I've said this before but Sofia, ohhhhh my. I want to squeeze those chubby legs! She is so precious x

  4. As much as I love the beauty of summer I cant wait for fall to come, it is by far my favorite season.

    You write beautifully and Sofia is so sweet!!

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 NiƱo 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…
