It was noisy. It was chaotic. It was wonderful. And the best part? Having this little one home. Be still my heart. To have her here, with us this year, was the greatest gift we could have ever imagined. But the kids wanted toys, too For some crazy reason. Tallula got a Frozen snuggle-thing. Whose one-size-fits-all sizing is evidently for… Read More
Seriously, I love this dog. Okay, confession time. I love all my dogs like a crazy-dog-hoarder-person. Thankfully (I suppose?) I married someone who had only a mild affinity for dogs… comparatively speaking. Because it’s kept my wild love for dogs in check. But then came Noah. I know, I know. I wax poetic all the time about this dog. But… Read More
In my last post, I promised I’d share about my birthday gift. The extra-special-something-I’d-asked-for. And here it is. Or more appropriately, here she is. Last fall, just a few months after bringing our beloved Noah home, I knew that someday I’d want another boston terrier. I am, if you haven’t already noticed, kind of an animal lover. I’d have a… Read More
For all of one week, my husband was married to a younger woman. Then it was my turn. Forget the cheesecake and the ice cream cake. I wanted a girly cake. And – thanks to my beloved oldest child – a girly cake is what I got. I also got 11 handmade cards, created just for me by each of… Read More
Yesterday was the 4th of July. Sun shining, high temps in the mid 80’s and a light breeze blowing. We had the picnic basket ready to go by 11 AM. By 12, our picnic lunch was devoured. And we let the kids – souped up on bologna sandwiches, cheese sticks and Cherry Coke – run wild. Freedom. Glorious freedom. A… Read More
I did it last year. The year before. And even the year before that. It’s sort of a thing, I suppose. And, since 2013 doesn’t want to be left out, here are my favorites from the last year. Not necessarily technically my favorites, from a photography standpoint. Just from a mama’s standpoint. 1. Princess Vivienne. 2. My incredibly silly pony…. Read More
Ahhhh, fall. My kids love being outside this time of year. We all do. And with the big boys homeschooling now, it’s a whole new level of fun when we’re all outside together. Which is sometimes a good thing, and sometimes a not-so-good thing. On this day, it was more than a good thing. It was completely adorable. Blessed to… Read More
I know, y’all. It’s a dog. And I made him a hat. Okay, you might even call it a crown. And took his picture. And fed him bits of cheese. All to celebrate his birthday. Help. This ship is sinking fast.
Since celebrating Poppy’s 2 years home with a photo shoot, I’ve been taking my kids out – one by one – to capture them this summer. Given, it’s almost fall now, but I’m not one to let a technicality stop me. Sophie’s photos are here and Isabelle’s are here. Just a few more to go. Okie-dokie. Back to Dalton. When… Read More
… this teeny-tiny baby dog makes me smile. Big. P.S. This infatuation is preposterous. The kids are even worse than me. And my husband is the worst of all. Send help fast.
