I had never been out this way before, we love to explore our city. Once again, we were in awe of the views that are just a short drive away from our home. We feel really blessed to love where we live as much as we do. Our drive was fun and gorgeous and at the end of it we got to meet a new friend that will be joining our family in a few short weeks. Meet our 6th member. His name is still to be agreed upon…stay tuned…

And then, one day, we put a door on the wall…

My husband and I love to garage sale. One day we fell in love with a door at a random barn sale that we happened upon. We didn’t know what we were going to do with it…
PS For the last 2 years of living in our home, it has irked me that our stairway was boring, stark white. HOWEVER, the ceiling is SUPER high and I’m just not all the excited about hopping up on a ladder over stairs to paint said stairway and I’m equally unexcited about paying someone to hop up on a ladder and paint it for me.
SO… with the irking of the stairway going on and this lovely door that we found, a brainstorm happened.
It was one of those times when everything works out – the kids took a long nap, we were able to find the tools we needed, we didn’t argue about which side of the door was more attractive, you know, the BIG stuff ;) …my husband and I were on the same page and stoked about our weird little idea. And at the end of the day we had a door on our wall…now, I’m fully aware that MOST people will not love having a sideways door on their wall.  You probably don’t think a sideways door is awesome like we do…that’s totally fine… this is just an example of how we had an idea and went with it and love it. So find a color that you love or a painting or a piece of art and ROCK it! No one should only decorate their home based on what everyone else is doing ;)

Sneak Peak for the W Family

I took newborn photos for this adorable little guy, it was so fun to see how much he’s grown and changed in just a few short months. He was a tough cookie too! It was chilly! Thanks again, for letting me capture your family again – it was so special to see how well loved your sweet boy is.

It is my favorite season! We got some great light for our shoot and I got some practice working with dogs…lots of dogs :) Loved it! Axel

A Party for Antioch, August 25, 2012

Several weeks ago, out of the blue, I had this phrase stuck in my head “Let’s do something Good.” I was driving on the freeway and it was a random thought. But it didn’t pass, it just sat there in the back of my mind like thoughts tend to when they come from Someone bigger than me. I started to wonder if I could put something together that would be fun and bless our friends and at the same time accomplish “something good.”

So I prayed about it…and started moving forward. There were MANY times when I started to doubt that I could pull it all together, feel stupid or embarrassed for even trying, but each time I felt like I would see confirmations from the Lord that I should quit with all the doubt and worry about things that don’t matter and just keep moving forward.

I had no idea what the Lord had planned but I went with it.

With help from my husband and my sister, and so many contributions from our friends and some really cool shops, we were able to host a party and raffle that raised over $550 for Antioch Adoptions here in town. Which was totally amazing!! Thank you to everyone that helped us out – we were so blessed by what the Lord was able to accomplish! I took the donations to Antioch this afternoon and I am so excited that we were all able to help them out even a little!
PS Homemade photo-booths are SUPER fun :)
