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

SOFIA:  Quick to pull out the latest treasure found from my luggage, a handwoven colorful serape that was purchased in Mexico.  We have a game we call "casita" where you run and hide underneath a blanket and pretend it's your house - you giggled over and over until you were too tired to keep playing.  We missed you so much on this trip, I still laugh to myself thinking how every night your Papa and I would sit and talk in our bed, thinking about all the silly things you do with the biggest grins on our faces.

  4. oh my word, she's the best.

    sean and i have a really hard time away from our girl too. just last night she stayed with her grandparents and we couldn't help but sit in bed, bringing up all the funny things she does. we try to mimic her and then we laugh and laugh - missing her dearly. often times, we drop her off with family for the night, head on a dinner date, then after, go right back to visit with her before heading home alone. we can't help it! my parents just roll their eyes like we're insane...

    i wouldn't have it any other way though! ...as if i really have a choice ;)

  15. I always enjoy coming over here and looking at your photos. I look at them as a standard that I want my photos to be. This one is no exception. The warmth and grain of the wood contrasting with the brightness of the serape is perfection. And those cheeky eyes popping out from it all - icing on the cake.

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…

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…
