I first “met” Shelley over Instagram and started “comment flirting” immediately.
This mama has a brilliant spirit and can make your mouth water with her images of the food she makes! She is so warm and easy to connect with, it’s seems fitting for her to be a blogger. I loved our photo adventure together around Carlsbad, it felt like hanging out with a good friend. xoxox, Shelley! You are stunning.

I had one of those days. The days where you decide to go out of your norm.
Oliver and I were coming home from a little shoot with Jenn & Ava (The Overwhelmed Mommy) for one of their clients and decided to take a mini adventure. I have been staring at these rock formations for years, hoping one day to stop and explore, and by golly, TODAY was the day! I was in my Birkes and was a bit anxious with all the lizards running around, but I kept my cool…trying to have Oliver not afraid of bugs & things that scare me, so one day he will protect me from them (like his daddy!). And really, I saw a handful, not a million, so I told myself keep truckin’ with your open toe Birkes!
Now, I really want to take some portraits/couples/family/engagement/just because’s/anniversary/you name it photos here! There is SO much to explore, and so gorgeous. <3

Today, was laundry day in our household. And when I say day, I mean it. And not because we have a lot of clothes, because that isn’t it either, my husband only has 50 pieces in his wardrobe (shirts/tees/pants/shoes/jackets/suits)…maybe even less now, as we like to sort through our wardrobe often, to sift out the unnecessary. (My side of the closest has more, about 75 was the last count I think we did…) But it is because we have a hand crank laundry machine. When we got pregnant, one thing I became a bit obsessed with is figuring out how to cut our laundry. I mean, we do not have laundry in our apartment, it was costing us about $3-4 each load, and took way too much time & I refused to do it as we needed to go to our apartment’s basement. So we bought an option we could do in the comfort of our own home for like $80!
Any who, today, was laundry day. So Oliver stayed in his jammies/play suit and I did the laundry, although, at one point, Oliver “helped”. 🙂 Now, a side note, I still did not finish the laundry….only could do about half, as our drying system is to hang the clothes on a shower rod in the shower, therefore limiting our amount that can dry at one time. And I needed to pause throughout the day to capture some of these too cute moments and his “I’m dying I love these soo much” jammies. I’m consciously “look[ing] for the moments without distractions”.
