365 ~ full wolf moon

Hi, friends! I've decided to take a huge leap and start my own 365 project with the girls. Gulp! I may be in over my head, but if you're interested, it will be at a lovely separate space to keep things un-cluttered and solely 365 related. You can follow along and be updated when I post our daily photos via bloglovin'. We'll be posting weekly over at Jodi's place, too!

So, what does this mean for Diapers & Skinny Jeans? To be honest, I'm not 100% certain yet; the space will mostly likely receive some sort of a face-lift within the new year, and I will keep on writing when my heart feels like it. This is, and will continue to be, the home of my Sling Diaries entries and has been such an integral part of my online history. This is where it all began. This is my outlet to journal, to get creative. Where over the course of the years, I have tried out all of the blogging fads like recipe making, DIYs, and starting my own columns. You try on different hats, you see what fits, you learn and experience and feel awkward and then one day, it's just ~~~ right. It's where I've met such a wonderful group of people from all over the world, gotten to know my good friends even better, or been given the opportunity to even meet some of you in 'real life'. Since 2010, this has been my home and I am so grateful for another year with even more opportunities and memories all waiting to be made.

I'm just so gosh darned grateful.

For everything.

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 NiƱo 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…

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…
