"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Sofia: The snow is here and it is most definitely sticking!  Today we took you out to the Children's Farm in Orland Park, where we were quickly reminded that they were closed for the winter.  Luckily your Papa and I were able to get a few snaps in before we got yelled at.  How could they possibly kick out a little girl and her sled? ;)



  1. nothing better than a little girl & her sled!

    p.s. we're all good and safe here from the hurricane. the weather has been nuts though! how's the knitting coming along? are you going to try to make the easy baby blanket?


    1. so glad to hear - I was thinking of you all. knitting is still just a thought in my mind, i've been researching different fabrics and trying to figure out the "gear" i need, but i'm really hoping this is something i can knock out in the next few months. i'm staying hopeful x

  2. Oh! You guys still have snow. We have mud, although it was snowing a bit earlier. I don't know HOW they could kick her out! :)

  3. i've loved seeing little scenes from your day today. that sled is really cute and sofia riding on it? it's almost too much ♥

    i'm happy you were able to sneak in anyway. 'cause this shot is fantastic.

  4. We went to the children's farm near us today, but there wasn't snow there! I love this photo, Sofia is a very lucky girl xxx

  5. All that color against the snow makes for such a happy scene. Love it!

  6. This is so surreal. It's as hot as hot can be over in Malaysia. And the impending Chinese new year always holds the promise of a real scorcher!

  7. love a wintry portrait while i'm sweating it out here !

  8. The colours are amazing! We've had one day of snow so far. Over so fast x

  9. Cute!
    Can't believe they would kick such a sweetie out! x

  10. Such a gorgeous, innocent time. To think those big grumps wanted to move her along. Sweet baby girl :) x

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…

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…
