“Freedom, by definition, is people realizing they are their own leaders.” – Diane Nash I’ve recently felt like I shouldn’t be writing or posting because there are so many other more important things happening in our world right now. Writing all about me seemed selfish, like I didn’t deserve the right to do it when things… Read More A self help post for my tiny crumb of the interwebs: do better.
I’ve spent the last twelve (!) months focused on my 2016 word: ENGAGE. I dedicated every weekly yoga practice to it. I meditated on it. I focused on that word so intently it feels a little like abandonment to move to a new word for 2017. But if I’ve learned anything from choosing a word… Read More One Word for 2017
Wow, 2016 you’ve been something else. Not all bad, but a turbulent year for most for sure. We decided to move all the way across the country in the middle of this insane year, which only seems fitting to add to its absurdity. It’s turned out awesome for us though, so no complaints. What I… Read More Apartment Decor for the Girls (and unsolicited pictures of cats)
In about 24 hours we are heading down to SoCal from Seattle to hike, explore and camp in Joshua Tree National Park (still hitting up those National Parks for the 100th birthday) for two days, then going on to Palm Springs for a best friend, Ellen’s, wedding. While I’m loving Seattle, I’m more than excited… Read More A Toast To Palm Springs
Somehow in the process of trying to deny that things are always changing, we lose our sense of the sacredness of life. We tend to forget that we are part of the natural scheme of things. – Pema Chodron This post has been rumbling around inside of me for two months (not long after my… Read More Aurevoir Paris of the Plains – waving goodbye to KC from 30,000 feet up
I wanted to post these precious pictures of this baby that I happen to love very much tonight, because right now, the world could use a little sweetness added to it. Last month I got the amazing experience of taking this cutie’s photo. About 1,000 times. Along with some candid moments with his grandparents… Read More Baby Callan’s American Adventure
Let your mother know you’re safe And by the time she wakes We’ll have driven through the state The Lumineers About one month out from our amazing western road trip, and I’m still a little bit in awe of how great it was. I was a little worried about spending so much time in the car… Read More It’s About The Journey, Not So Much The Destination
Today I am going into the magical west and possibly never returning. Just kidding. Sort of. The seeds for this trip were planted around a year ago when I heard one of my besties decided to go and get married in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which in itself has been on my travel bucket list for a while.… Read More Going West… An Aggressive Road Trip Camping Itinerary
Amid life’s busy schedule lately, I managed to have had the unique opportunity to capture the first couple weeks of a precious baby girl’s life. Emmalyn, much like her parents, has the sweetest disposition and was the most perfect little lady during the TWO shoots we put her through at such a young age. We even… Read More Newborn Cuteness Overload
A quarter of a year has passed since setting a “word” resolution in January and it’s time for a life check-in. If I had to go back and meet my old self, say two or three years ago, sometimes I’m not sure I would even know who she is. One of the tracks played in… Read More A 4 month real-talk “engage 2016” check-in and that time (times) I cried in yoga: an ode to my yoga studio. You’ve been warned.
