It was December 1st, 2019. I had cooked up the brilliant idea (truth: I totally stole the idea from my friend, Jenny Rusby) to do an activity advent calendar for my kids. The very first activity? A sing along bus. I was JACKED. I knew they’d love it. That afternoon, the very first day of […]

My palms were sweaty and my heart was racing. I legit thought I was going to throw up and had to have a lot of self-talk in the car before I stepped out. It sounds like a high school date, right? πŸ˜²β€‹ But, it wasn’t. It was the very first time I photographed another family. […]

Ok, ok. It’s not a bar. It’s my house. But! What happens if those things walk into a house together? (Let’s be honest, they don’t walk – they arrive in my mailbox and I bring them inside with glee, but let’s run with this little joke, shall we?) Well, they become COVID faves. My very best […]

When you’re pregnant, well-meaning people tell you a million random pieces of advice. Right? Sleep when baby sleeps (totally useless advice for me). Shower and get dressed to feel better (meh, decent). Stick to a schedule at all costs. Don’t worry about a schedule. Have a flexible schedule. Go with the flow. Be rigid and […]
