Night, Night Sweet Baby!

This mood board really took me for a spin. I usually have an idea of where I’m going with a design, but basically nothing from my original ideas is still in this board. It went from a blue and yellow theme towards a more serene palette. I couldn’t decide to go for blue or a grey lavender for the paint color. So I went for both. I love the sheep …continue…

May, already?!

Ok. Where are the months going?! It’s almost May? Noooo. Not only will I be turning 30! Over the hill!!! But sometimes I look at Jackson and I don’t recognize him. His face is really turning into that of a boy. He won’t be my baby for long. I’m not really stressed about either of these things but I do get blown away at how quickly time does pass. I’ve …continue…

{Party} Ahoy it’s a Boy!

So, I’m aware that this is a little late as Stacy’s son, Connor is now almost 7 months old, and has turned into quite the adorable boy as you saw a few days ago. But summer is approaching and this theme is perfect for a summer baby shower. So for all the expectant mother’s out there a Sailor theme or an ‘Ahoy it’s a Boy’ is an easy theme to …continue…

{Photos} Baby Connor at 2 weeks

Yesterday I shared photos of Stacy and Steve and their son Connor. Let’s take a 6 month jump back in time and see Connor at 2 weeks old. I swear I did this post already, but I can’t find it, so if you have seen these photos already, I apologize. But, come on, who doesn’t like pictures of a newborn? This has to be my favorite photo: He wasn’t terribly …continue…

{Photos} A morning at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph one of my friends from college and her family.  It was very sunny and although we started early (8:30ish) it started getting warm fast as the dial was to approach the 90s by midday.  I am by no means a professional photographer, I would barely consider myself an amateur photographer so the bright sun and I met our match.  Even I …continue…

Commentary

A few days ago, I posted about the well-intentioned (usually) comments that strangers and family alike make that might not come across how they hope.  Just this morning a friend posted on Facebook about people asking what is wrong with her baby’s face.  Her sweet little girl has eczema and despite all her mom’s efforts nothing is helping.  They have been to three different doctors regarding the issue, tried every …continue…

Feels like summer

The past few days have been warm, ok, hot!  It’s a little preview of what summer will bring.  One of our favorite dishes is fish tacos.  And I say it’s one of our favorites because my husband takes full responsibility for making it.  He even opened the corona. Tonight was one of those evenings when it wasn’t too hot, nor too cool.  It was just the perfect temperature to be …continue…

Aw, she looks _________

For some reason, I find that people have a need to assign some state to Eleanor when we are around.  I typically smile and just ignore the comments, but on my more sensitive days it makes me feel like they think I am somehow inadequate as a parent.  Deep down I know they are just making conversation and have good intentions but in a sleep deprived state and on repetition …continue…

New Etsy Designs – Baby Shower

It’s been semi-quiet here on the blog, but that is because we’ve been working on new birthday invitations and baby shower invitations for our Etsy shop.  First up, here are some of our new baby shower invitations: What do you think?  Is there a baby shower theme you would love to see?  Let us know!  We’re always looking for new ideas.  

{Etsy} Pillow talk

(a soft cuddly brown dog from etsy) Jackson has begun to transform his constant babble into a few words here and there.  Other than the basic, ‘mama’, ‘dada’, and ‘baba’ he has begun to identify other items when we are out and about.  If he sees a dog then we have to prepare for a couple minute freak out session.  ‘Daw! Daw!’ he shouts as he points at the poor …continue…
