easter : holiday weekend

A perfect weekend day spent with family, warm enough for light jackets and egg hunting in Great Grandma's backyard.  Spring is on it's way here and we are all breathing a little easier.  I feel so blessed for moments like these that we all get to spend together - I couldn't be more grateful that I live just hours away from the most important people in the world to me. (With the exception of my other sister who moved out to sunny California).  A trip may be on order soon!

I sincerely hope your Easter weekend was warm, bright and filled with family.


  1. Those smiles are the cutest, and yes come to California! :)

  2. so gorgeous kate, the smiles are infectious! I am so jealous of your close proximity to your family, we miss so much being states apart. and I love seeing something new every time I stop in - new header.. new font.. new colours.. new profile pic.. :) x

    1. I have a very (very) bad habit of changing things around all the time... I'm grateful you don't mind ;) x

    2. I love all the changes, too Kate! I always find myself saying a mental "ooohhhh that's nice!" when I visit ;)

  3. cuuuuute! Oh these photos made me a bit homesick for my own family who I just said goodbye to ... Lovely, glad to hear everyone's breathing a little easier. Sounds ideal. x

  4. what a great day.

    and the blog looks beautiful.

  5. These photos look like such fun!


  6. So glad you guys had a wonderful Easter! These pictures are beautiful and Sofia's smile is just too sweet! It's so nice to be so close to family, it was really hard on me when we lived in Seattle away from all my family.

  7. Looks like a beautiful day! Everyone looks so happy!

  8. Glad you had a good Easter! Gorgeous photos as always! :)


  9. So lovely. Looks like you had a great Easter xx

  10. So lovely you spent the day with family! My parents were in another state (spending Easter with my sister and her family this year) so it was a bit lonely for us, but still lovely nonetheless. Is that your sister? She has such an infectious smile! x

  11. I love her whole outfit specially her shoes :)

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…
