mail day





Oh, was this just the pick up I needed today!  Sofia received her gorgeous bonnet from Greer at Typically Red and Mama treated herself to a new case (now my iPhone can go incognito while in Mexico.)  Usually if we order something online our shipments spread themselves out over the week, but today everything came at once!  I couldn't believe it.  I had posted a while ago on Facebook about how amazing the craftsmanship of the Typically Red knits were, but after seeing it in person I can truly vouch for the time and love put into every woven row.  I'm thinking I may have to pick up a neutral color to fit bebe's tiny head next winter... eep!

Is it obvious I had a bit of retail therapy a few weeks ago?

  5. I've bought Sunny two of Greer's bonnets! Don't you just love them! Sofia looks adorable in hers :) I'm all for retail therapy weeks! Esp when packages arrive on your doorstep... It's almost like unwrapping Christmas or Birthday pressies!

  6. Oh your baby girl in her bonnet is just so beautiful! Such a pretty colour on her. Yay to parcels arriving in a timely fashion. Then again...I like the long forgotten ones that appear and you aren't sure what it is until you open it. Hope your weekend is lovely :) 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…
