Last year, on this day, we found out we were going to have a baby.  Well, in truth, I already knew (the way you just know), but there was the whole peeing-on-a-stick part. Anyway, it was kind of poetic to find out I was going to be a Mom on a day to celebrate that. […]

Sloane Isabella Wednesday, January 11th 12:08 am 8 lbs 3 oz. 21 inches Last Wednesday a little bundle of squeaky-toy cries, gummy smiles and the sweetest little expressions exploded into our lives.  She came in her own way, on her own time, and flipped our lives sideways in the meantime. We’ve been learning all of […]

I was meeting with a new client couple recently and they said, rather enthusiastically, “those pictures of the anticipation of the day – those are our favorites!”.  I was shocked, because….me too!  So often those moments are my favorites of a wedding day.  It’s a sweet and overlooked time – most are focused on the […]

My dear nephew Ethan, A year ago you came into our lives, all coos, gurgles and funny looks.  Your uncle and I are so proud to be your godparents, and have really loved watching you grow and change over the last 12 months. I was lucky enough to be there when you arrived.  I got […]

As some of you might know, Hubby works in Fireworks.  In fact, he has as long as I’ve known him (and let’s just suffice it to say that is a looooong time).   Hence, we are both hitting our busy seasons at the same time.  It makes for a hectic home-life to say the least. […]

I stumbled down the stairs in my nightgown, the ruffled edge getting caught in my five year old toes.  I was dragging something – a teddy bear?, a blanket?  I could hear the quiet hum of the television coming from the family room.  I wasn’t sure why I was up so early – the sun […]

“Just hold it up a little higher” he yelled from across the field.  I squeezed my hands together tighter, held the bat up by my ears and squinted at him.  He lobbed a softball in my direction and I swung as hard as I could.  And missed.  “Keep your eye on the ball Babe!” he […]
