bump : week 25

Thump-thump!  We have a little soccer player on our hands!  Baby De La Rosa has been kicking more often, and with much more gusto than the previous weeks. Most afternoons I am completely and utterly wiped out, morning and afternoon naps have been my only saving grace.  I've found that consequently, the lack of energy that has halted my yoga practice has now led to some weakening back muscles (okay, everywhere muscles) and well, whoever said you get boundless energy in the second trimester was totally wrong when it comes to making this baby. Erick has been showering me with back rubs and moments to nap and I couldn't ask for anything more.

I love my husband.

PS- being able to adventure outside again is just the cherry on top of it all!



  1. So beautiful! And being able to play in all that snow looks amazing!

  2. love, love all the pictures but the one you is so beautiful. you are glowing :).
    Saskatchewan and Chicago share something in common, lot of snow

  3. Such beautiful pictures Kate. Sorry I haven't been around here for a while......well I have, but no comments! Have been loving watching your bump grow. Oh that snow looks like such fun.


  4. These are beautiful! I love the pops of colour against the crisp white snow. Looks like so much fun, too!

  5. Stunning! Your photography is seriously otherworldly. I love your bump series so much!

  6. I can relate! The second time around, especially while chasing around a toddler, does NOT increase your energy in that second trimester. Get as much rest as you can, muma! You deserve it. You are growing a whole human, after all. ;)

    That snow! It's got me all excited. We are off to Canada tomorrow from sunny, hot Australia and we're just about jumping out of our skins with excitement to play in the snow!

  7. ah! i absolutely adore the shots of you with sofia!

  8. Gorgeous photos! Seems so funny looking at your shots of the snow while it's disgustingly hot here in Western Australia :) You look amazing... like you though, I found it was a little further into my second trimester before I had more energy again :) Hang in there, before you know it, you'll be in a nesting frenzy in your final weeks xx

  9. Wonderful photos! The contrast of the crisp white snow and your red pom pom hat is brilliant! I would love the chance to play in the snow with my boys right now.

  10. So much fun :) now I know what in case I experience snow in my city.

  11. take care of yourself, i lived at the chiropractor with my third.

  12. Oh I love these pictures. You look glowing and stunning...very very sweet. Good luck lucky lady xx

  13. stunning photos! lu.

  14. sorry, I'm new to your blog and I just noticed your ombre hair, it's so nice, any tips on how you did it? :)

    1. Just hand paint the ends in a caramel blonde color (bleach with a bit of toner), and don't foil them. I left them on for around 30-45 minutes or so. It's lasted forever, though I've been debating lately to go back to all one color.

  15. You are looking so beautiful, and I love these photos as always. You are both amazing photographers, Kate.

  16. Love these pictures, You are such a glowing Mama! and your coat is amazing! xo

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…
