Hello, It's Me


* screeeeeeech.... opens door *

Hello?

Are you in there?

I'm baaaaaaack! Holy shnikeys! It's only been a good two years or so. Talk about a blogging hiatus. So, after many many failed attempts at fancy Squarespace sites and having absolutely zero direction on which way I wanted to go, I found myself right back here. Good 'ol blogger. Good 'ol free simple template. Good 'ol feed with all my old friends. It's been a long, long time. And it feels weird! But I'm dusting off the cobwebs anyway and just writing because I need to.

Plain and simple.

Now, a few things-- the blog title is a bit different. My kiddos are nearly three and five years old so diapers [thankfully] are a thing of the past. Hallelujah! And if you haven't heard, folks, skinny jeans are out. They're done! Bring on the bellbottoms, culottes and 90's fashion revival. You heard it here first, everyone. Just wait. 

Also. Growing up. I kinda laugh at how much I've changed as a person and how much this blogging world has changed in general over the past five years. All the fads and the advertising and the product pushing is still very well and alive, but goodness it does not affect me any more and THANK YOU sweet jesus for that. Now if any of y'all are still on that vibe, I still love ya. I'm just sticking to my unfiltered mess of words and photography. I wanted to pick up where I left off because even though I cringe reading these old posts, I couldn't bear to ever lose these old photographs into the dark void of cyberspace where all the dead, forgotten blogs end up. That was my life back then, and it's important to my journey. My intentions are simple: preserving memories and refining my craft, both in words and photos. I'm documenting in the only way I know how. Authentic, true, messy, me.

Thanks for stopping in, growing with me, taking the time to comment, or just being a friend. 

Love! xxx

  1. hello from the other siiiiide!

    Did I really just quote Adele. I guess I did. It's so lovely to see you're back. I have very similar thoughts to you about the blogging world - it can be so big and busy and, lets be honest, pushy, but still it's nice to have the freedom to just write what you want, when you want, and I have to say, I've missed the connections I have with other similar people in different parts of the world. The blogging world has its drawbacks for sure, but also a great many benefits.

    Anyway, it is so nice to see you back! x

  2. Adele! I was actually thinking the same thing in my head... I totally left the door open for Adele jokes on that one ;)

    Yay, so glad to be back.

    I missed our chats! x

  4. Such a wonderful surprise to see new posts in my feed! It's been 2 1/2 years since I posted anything. Ha! I miss how blogs used to be - real and personal. No sales pitches or pretending to be experts at anything. Just shared thoughts and experiences. Your return gives me hope for a revival. ;)

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…

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…
