My incredibly talented friend across the pond, Tricia, has started a fantastic online magazine highlighting creative arts and people from all over the world. Hearth is something I've been excited about from the beginning, and now I'm so so happy to share that I was allowed to share my story as a featured artist.

This is such a happy day for us!! If you haven't had the chance to see what Hearth is all about, definitely keep your eye on this. Tricia is the mastermind behind all of these incredible side projects, and has something new in the pipeline for little kid photographers, too!

In only two more sleeps now, Erick and I will be heading to Boston to visit his brother and sister-in-law and we couldn't be more excited. I've never been to Boston, and have barely spent any time in the east coast at all so this is a much needed, mini-vacation for us... though, I am sad to be leaving the little one behind.

Family vacation somewhere warm will be next on the agenda. ;)


  1. aw, congrats on the feature Kate! well deserved, you are so talented! enjoy your trip out east, I went to Boston a few years ago and it was amazing!

  2. Great article! I second the comment above me. Enjoy your trip to Boston!

  3. Have fun in Boston! I've never been either, but Manny and I will be going in April for the marathon. Be sure to let me know what we shouldn't miss while we're there!

  4. Thank you all! I'm super excited to take the trip... it's always fun going somewhere you've never been.

  5. oooh congratulations on the Hearth, I will go check it out, that is so exciting for you Kate!

    And heading to Boston soon...i've never been either, but of course it's suppose to be amazing.
    Happy for you to get away:)


  6. Hey Kate! I loved the feature on Hearth (and I love Tricia, so win-win!) and was so excited to (re)discover you because of it. I plan to mercilessly stalk you from here on in :)
    Your approach really rings true for me, and your processing is gorgeous. I'm excited to see more.

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…
