Freezing a Moment In Time

You know those moments that arise as a mom where everything falls together perfectly? Those moments when all the hard work, tantrums, and spilled-milk don't exist? It seems that all the stars are aligning perfectly and you realize, it's all worth it...I had one of those this week.
The tears fell on my cheeks as I clicked away. They were all being so sweet and I was just taking in how…

A Rainy Day Photo Shoot: So Thankful for the Moisture

One thing I'm enjoying immensely about doing a "project 52" is how it is stretching me in my creativity. There is something so rewarding about receiving the theme, letting it play through your imagination, picturing something in your mind and then shooting the finished product just how you imagined it. Typically I'm a "shoot from the hip" kind-of-girl; I like to be in the moment and just go with…

Summertime In All It's Glory and A Little Background Music

What do you think about when you remember you childhood summers? 
 
For me it's camping, water fights, lake days, fireworks, flip-flops, living in my bathing suit, riding bikes, playing outside until I was forced to come in, park days, dinner outside, and laying on my back making shapes out of the…

My Special Day: Mom and Dad All to Myself

There are moments when life catches you off guard. Typically we just go about our day. We wake up, we busy ourselves with our to-do lists and then it's time for bed. There are days when we take a step back, we understand the reality of how fast time is passing. When I look at my oldest daughter, she reminds me of how fast time is slipping by. I find myself in those moments becoming very sad, but…

How Boys Do

Only having a sister growing up, I knew absolutely nothing about little boys. I remember holding Jonathan for the first time and thinking, "I'm not sure what to do with this handsome little love." It took only a few seconds for me to be smitten. There is something so special about my little boys and they completely have my heart. 
 
I have learned so much from them and I feel like…

HUSBAND + DATE + ULTA = BAD IDEA

Going to Ulta with your husband is never a good idea. 
They just don't understand. 
They just don't get it.
"$19.99 for hairspray? Can't you find something cheaper?"
"No. I need this one."
I'm typically the "buy it and don't tell," type. But we live far away from stores big city folk take for granted. So on this particular night the opportunity became available for…

California Adventure: Part II Disneyland

We came up with this plan somewhere in Utah, we were going to get as many pictures with status as we could. It all started with Bud and Mom. We didn't do as well as we had planned, but here are a few. 
I guess we have a thing for bears. Can you spot Britty?…

California Adventure On A Whim: Part 1

It was around 6:00. The kids had eaten and gone downstairs for their movie. We had decided it was the perfect night for a quiet, adult-only dinner. We indulged in our slow-cooked pork ribs and, in between our moaning over the goodness, we had uninterrupted grown-up talk... it was wonderful. 
 
We found ourselves…

Matty-Moo's Chocat Birfday

"Matthew your birthday is coming up soon, what do you want to do for your birthday?"
"Chocat birfday!"
And every time we asked him, that was the answer he stuck to. He didn't want anything else but a Chocolate birthday. Okay, you got it. He couldn't have made it any easier on us. 
Matthew is the kid that will make your heart melt with sweetness one minute and then drive you to the point of insanity the next. He will make you laugh until you cry with…

Selfless Love: A Husband Guest Post

It is so refreshing to hear someone put life's responsibility in God's hands. Some live this way, in a sense of wonder covered by the miraculous care of God's grace. Every day is a new adventure and life is about the journey in the minds of people who live by a vibrant and real faith. I write this because there is a couple of people that I consider close to my heart and they exemplify this mindset with…

My "In The Moment" Moments

Life would be such a disappointment if it always stayed the same. It's very comforting to know that life is always evolving, changing, and taking me by surprise. Yes, there are those things that stay constant; God's love, my morning coffee, and that fact that I'll always be a klutz. But most everything else could change at any given moment. I want to remember what this season looks like and so I'm going to start an "In the Moment" series. It's actually just a way of being able to post…

The Worst Feeling In The World

I will never forget that feeling of helplessness. It was a moment when I literally could do nothing but cry out for help. In that moment I felt so small, so useless. I’d like to be able to say I relied on my faith, experience or calm personality in that moment of distress but I admit that I had failed miserably. I hope that I never see that panicked side of myself…

The Kind of Surprises That Keep Me Smiling

To me it's the unpredictability in life that keeps me smiling. 

Let me clarify. 
I'm not a fan off all types of surprises. I don't necessarily like surprises when we are talking about presents; I'm not much of a gifts person. I also don't like the kind of surprise that involves my husband jumping out from behind a door; that just causes me to want to impulsively punch him in the face. But the kind of spontaneity that lends itself to…

Feaking Out and Laughing Like Crazy

I have always said that one thing I wanted to strive for in parenting is to keep the lines of communication flowing between me and the kids. I want us to be able to talk about anything and everything. I want to be the one who explains the big life lessons, the hard questions, and the life changing decisions that come their way.



I was slapped in the face with one of these instances and I flat out panicked. OH MY FREAKING GOODNESS!!!!



All I have to say is that I am…

The Hilltop Lodge at The Denver Home Show

The Hilltop Lodge made it's debut at the Denver Home Show this weekend! We had a great turn-out and a wonderful response from the crowd! Everyone wanted to see what all the commotion was about surrounding this adorable portable abode. There was often a line that formed with those waiting to step inside the little house and experience the custom built home away from home!



Thank you to all who helped make this…

Your Own Unique Voice

Your Own Unique Voice

A lot of times in our industry we get bogged down, depressed, insecure because we are always looking at what “we are not” rather then letting “who we are” shine through. 
A wise nerd once told me and I quote:
“ Make sure your research doesn’t steal your own, unique voice. Sometimes we look at too many…

Overcoming the I-Can't-Skate-Date

One of the greatest rewards in parenting is watching your child overcome something that they think they "can't do". I love to watch their determination replace their fears. I love to see the immense joy spread across their face when they finally get it; they took the fear and kicked it to the curb and wouldn't take "no" for an answer. 
Ella was next in line for a date-day with mommy. She was bursting with excitement the entire month. We were going rollerskating, and I was just…

Sometimes Life Just Needs a Fresh Coat of Paint

If life has you down maybe a little change is in order. Change is refreshing when life starts to become stagnant. It can be a small change; something as simple as a change of thought. Sometimes big changes are needed but most of the time all we need is a small shift to make our world feel fresh, new, and full again. 



Life will always seem chaotic, there is no getting around it, but what we do in the midst of crazy is what modifies the…
