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

You can't catch a break, can you?  As soon as you conquer one illness, another one strikes.  It's the worst thing in the world watching your babies being sick, especially when there's not much you can do to prevent it during one of the worst flu seasons we've had.  You've always been more of a papa's girl, but lately all you've wanted was to be in my arms.  I let you help me make blueberry pancakes, fresh whipped cream and bacon, you stood on a chair next to me listening as I explained the steps to you.  We took a shower and you quickly fell asleep in my arms, curled up exactly as you did when you were teeny-tiny.

  14. I know this so well! We're on day seven of fever, two days ago tonsillitis and just back from the dr now with a diagnosis of an ear infection. Of course my girl is doing the same as yours is in this picture. Sleep is the best medicine. Wishing yours a speedy recovery.

  20. oh gosh, Kate, this is just so sweet. I hate it so when my boys are sick, but I do find it so endearing that they just want me, cuddling and crawling into laps and our bed; I find I slow down too for more reading time, and more snuggles. hope that she feels better soon and that spring ushers in loads of loveliness and shoos away the winter season of colds & yuck. 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…
