hello there

Hello, friends.  It's been a while.  For any of you that have stopped by lately, I apologize for the absence here.  I miss this space.  I miss writing.  Most days I'm having an internal monologue with myself for minutes on end, trying to see if I can ever get out of my warm cocoon of a bed and head to work.  Erick and I both have been hit over the last two weeks with sinus infections and an extreme bout of exhaustion, so now our days have been spent primarily at home between blankets on the couch.  (It's been pretty cozy around here, lately!)  I do have some pictures from our time at Bengston's pumpkin farm that I'm planning on posting soon, and thankfully we've all been starting to feel better.

Now, it's off to go figure out why Sofia is wearing my old breast pump and tubing like a scarf around her neck...

Happy Tuesday! ;)


  1. Lovely autumn leaves! Hope you both get well soon!

  2. You are missed! Sinus infections are terrible.I hope you are both feeling better soon! oh Sofia. so funny. :)

  3. Aw sorry that you were sick - hope you recover soon! rest up xx

  4. oh sickness is the pits - especially when you've ALL got it. we've had a rough week here, two smalls on antibiotics and the smallest very near to as well.. I hope you are all back to full health really soon. sofia is a style guru :) x

  5. sometimes we just need a little break from our space and we don't eve know why...i'm glad yo had a break...i love this time of much. Excited to see your guys' pumpkins! Or did you get them already when you were at the patch?

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…
