How do you eat an elephant?

The night before my dad’s heart attack was a night full of foreshadowing. When I moved away from home, I naturally missed my dad from time to time. I couldn’t fall asleep without a tv show that reminded me of him playing in the background. Typically anything with Tim Allen, as he’s always reminded me […]

Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop | Sacramento Engagement Photography

“I think that possibly, maybe I’m falling for you. Yes there’s a chance that I’ve fallen quite hard over you. I’ve seen the waters that make your eyes shine. Now I’m shining too. Because oh because I’ve fallen quite hard over you.” -Landon Pigg, Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop

Before + everything you want to know // Day 1

I was trying to be super upbeat and positive and exaggerate my excitement for this post because I really want this to motivate someone. But I have to say it feels strange going from these often poignant, calm and reflective posts and then trying to suddenly flip a switch to this really Richard Simmons-y “COME […]

Life in Limbo

I remember once writing a post back in the very early days of blogging about how if I were a cleaning product I would be a Swiffer. I mean well, but I don’t always get the job done. I still have a love/hate relationship with Swiffers, and I still feel the sentiment to be true […]

Pregame | the 10 things you need to get in shape

A couple of things to note before we get this party started: I am not a nutritionist/health professional/fitness guru (nor do I want to be). I am just your every day average mom who wants to show others who may need a little guidance how she stays fit. Always consult your doctor and listen to […]

Old Habits

I’m not sure how many days it actually takes to make or break a habit. I’ve heard anywhere from 21 days to 90 days. From my own experience, it’s been about 30 days to make a habit and only 1 day to break it. Such is life. Before I took a little blogging hiatus to […]

Finding Meaning in the Mundane

Recently one night, after half a bottle of wine and a thorough examination of the state of my finances, I decided I needed to make photography and blogging a side hustle and look for a “real” job. All of my kids would soon finally be on the same school schedule, so I’d finally be able […]

Sprung on JORD Wood Watches

You guys, winter was the absolute worst. I typically enjoy the cooler temps, trips to the snow, and fun holidays spent with family. This year, however, winter just meant the kids and I were passing around the same disgusting cold for about three months. Yep. The absolute worst. When spring finally showed up I welcomed […]

She’s Scripty | Friday Feature

One of the things I love about being a small business owner is that I get to work with a lot of really great people. One of the things I love about having a blog is that it gives me a platform to tell everyone else about these really amazing people. I take “community over competition” seriously, […]
