Behind the Lens

 Wouldn’t it be nice if everyday was actually this picture perfect? The warm sun on our backs, the sweet sound of toddler giggles. Well it’s not.
Motherhood is exhausting, gross (at times) stressful, it's being in the trenches. Parenting, Marriage; LIFE, its messy. We get into stupid fights, we put too much on our plates, some mornings before I pull out of the driveway I'm wearing something sticky. Sometimes I drink too much tequila


Ikea Trip Tips

This is an end to our day at Ikea in Atlantic Station. Ice cream makes all babes happy! It didn't look like this as I was gathering my husbands Fathers Day gift 20 minutes prior. 
Let me take you back inside the warehouse Aisle 27 Bin 00. If you have shopped at Ikea you know the drill, find out where your goods are located, grab a flat bed cart and pray you'll be able to lift it on, while wrangling 2 tiny humans. So yes this post was all about tips....and what not to do...


Farm to Fridge

Do you know where your eggs come from? Until recently we didn’t either. We knew they were "cage free" but thats it. Now we only eat pasture raised eggs from Handsome Brook Farms. (video at the end of post) Side note: I have no affiliation with handsome brook farms, this is just a post on my beliefs and opinions. Thanks to Netflix and the evolving world we live in I’ve educated myself. What we are actually buying and eating from the grocery store? No I’m not a “crunchy” mom, nor a “vegan, vegetarian, gluten free” or any label mom. I’m trying to be smart, for my family. Everything in moderation? It’s not that simple. 


DIY Chalkboard Monthly Calendar

If you know me you know that I can’t sit still! Home decor DIY projects are my passion! If I can dream it up & Pinterest it until my thumbs hurt, I’m going to do it. 

{Disclaimer: I try and give y’all some step by step instructions when doing DIY projects. Again, I only share what worked for me. You assume any risk when choosing to try out these projects for yourself. Honestly not all my diy projects actually come out as planned. Insert my husband, “can’t we just order it on amazon”?


Happy 4th Babe

 To my beautiful daughter on her 4th birthday. I want you to know how much you mean to us and how much I love you.
Even though at the young age of 4, I feel like you know beyond your years. Somedays I want to freeze time. I want you to stay this sweet little babe of mine. 
Yes thats number one; You will always be my babe, as the first born I see you just the same as when I first heard your cry in the operating room; telling you "the worst is over".


Stay at home Mama & Social Media

"Social media is changing the way we communicate and the way we are perceived, both positively and negatively. Every time you post a photo, or update your status, you are contributing to your own digital footprint and personal brand." --Amy Jo Martin


I wish I knew then. 

Looking back over the past year or so (thank you to facebook "on this day") but realistically a year ago I was holding a plump baby boy on the beach visiting my parents at their snowbird retreat. During that visit I was still postpartum, running on fumes just to make it through the day. All the while running after a very busy & emotional toddler. Again thinking, ok soon he'll start sleeping through the night, soon the will be able to run together on the beach building sand castles jumping into the water.


Andersons 1st Birthday: Where the WILD THINGS are

First of all, I can't believe my baby is ONE!!! A WILD ONE to be exact. He is so different from his sister. Always on the go, already about to walk and talk! I heard the second one experiences milestones a bit faster to keep up with his/her siblings but jeez....this guy is quick. Knowing that he a bit "wild" & since he only sits when we are reading together I figured that Where the wild things are by Maurice Sendeck would be a perfect fit for his theme.


HOW TO: Antiqued mercury mirror glass windows

Finally I have some to catch up on the past month! October is and will always be one of the busiest months for us. Halloween costumes go without saying. Now that Anderson is an October babe that means birthday party planning! Then the photoshoot, because birthdays come with a photoshoot day, then the actual party. Honestly though as my husband says I live for this stuff. I can't deny that. I love planning & hosting. More importantly I LOVE seeing my vision come to life. 


Welcome to the heart of our home.

Welcome to our new home! I have been dying to share these but literally 1000 other things going on around me. So finally I have had a bit (a bit meaning the sliver of time when they are napping) of time to get some good shots. When we were frantically searching for a house here in Georgia we had a few expectations. A must have list so to speak. Which crazy enough I’m using as a place holder in
