interview : my little loves


This week I am so happy to share another sponsor, one whom I deeply hope to meet in person one day, and gosh... where do I even begin with Bekah?  She is such a strong, beautiful woman and a long time blogging friend of mine, a true kindred spirit.  Bekah, her husband Marc, and their beautiful family lead a natural, genuine, completely love-filled life where they share stories over at My Little Loves that are honest and true.  Out of the countless reasons I find myself drawn to her space, this is my most favorite part of visiting.  So many people can easily lose their authenticity through an internet persona they've made for themselves, but I feel like I know Bekah... you know?

I had the pleasure of getting to know this beautiful mama a bit better, here were some questions asked...

What is it about blogging that you love?

I love the clarity I get, jotting my own thoughts out. I often start a blog still collecting my own thoughts on something and writing helps me to make sense of them. Community has to be another wonderful part. I have enjoyed getting to know many through blogging. One of my best friends is someone I met through my blog. 

Family seems such an integral part of your life. How have your children and husband influenced your writing? 

My family is everything to me. I actually started my blog so that I would remember. On my hard days, I would have something to come back to and remember where my focus is. I am driven to be authentic and my blog helps me stay true to myself.

You chose the most beautiful names for your daughters, Ocean and Luna.  Tell us more about where those ideas came from.

Marc and I always wanted nature-inspired names for our girls. Marc was the first to suggest Ocean, I initially hated it (I know...) but eventually fell in love with it. We decided on Oceana for a more feminine name but we call her Ocean. For Luna, it was the the opposite, I suggested, Marc hated and then fell in love with it. I think their names are perfect. Knowing that in nature the Ocean and Moon are inextricably linked. And how they describe the girls so well. Ocean, you cannot tame her. She is my wild child. She is also unpredictable but she is wildly beautiful. Powerful. Luna, Luna is constant. She is calm and sweet. She glows with a quiet tenderness. She will be my emotional baby.

Any projects or new things you're working on?

Yes! I want to share...but it is in the early stages. I am working with my friend Doc Waller who hosts the show "On Beauty". We are going to do some fun stuff and I will share as soon as I can.

If told to use only three words to describe yourself, which would you choose?

I always feel awkward doing these so I asked Marc what three words would describe me and he said: Beautiful, Dedicated and Wise.

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…

LET'S CATCH UP, SHALL WE?

(silly photo of me saying, "whaaat?"  by the husband)

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…
