In Front of the Camera

by Jesse on June 5, 2016

When you’re a mommy, I think one of our biggest challenges is being in front of the camera. I take lots of photos of the kids, and my husband with the kids. But there are definitely fewer of me. In an attempt to get in front of the camera, my friend Molly of Molly Thompson Visuals, came over and took a few of me. I love having them taken in our home. So when our kids look back it’s not just a photo of me, but memories of their childhood home.

Clearly, I have a love of book!

One of my favorite things is honeysuckle. It brings back memories of standing at the edge of our garden with muddy feet, breathing in that delicious smell and sipping out that tiny bit of nectar. Something I’ve passed onto my children.

So glad to have these. =)

I encourage you to get out from behind that camera more too.



Strike a Pose

by Jesse on May 28, 2016

We see the big girls pose all of the time, so we thought we would give it a try. While not all of these photos are tack sharp, they are still a fun way to capture the little dancer she is now.

In the Social Media World

In a world full of selfies and instant media, I think it’s important to remember.


Stay classy, friends!



Blair’s First Year of Competitive Dance

by Jesse on April 27, 2016

I can’t say that I ever imagined I would have a daughter who wanted to dance competitively. Though it has been interesting to see her have a love of music and movement soul deep that I also carry.

Blair began her dance journey last year starting with all beginning classes and quickly fell in love with it. By the end of her first season she was begging to try out for the competitive team. We took the plunge and what a fun little season she’s had. She is already looking forward to next year and challenging herself to learn new things.

Her brave persistent spirit is quite inspiring.








 I can’t tell you how proud I am of Blair and her efforts to learn, grow and challenge herself.

Looking forward to seeing where her love of dance takes her.

Thank you so much to those of you who have supported her with your sweet encouraging comments and for coming to her events!

It was a treat to recently be able to take Senior Photos for a high school friend of mine’s daughter. It’s crazy to think her oldest is going to be graduating in a few short weeks. The world at her fingertips as she begins a new chapter of her life. Here is a peek at […]

Love List

March 3, 2016

I know you’ve heard the saying, “Surround yourself with people and things you love”. There is something about the impending spring that brings about my clean up and clean out phase. Therefore surrounding myself with things I love, and discarding the rest. It’s quite therapeutic. So at my house there has been lots of rearranging, […]

Cozy Texture

February 10, 2016

I’m in dire need of new bed linens. With kids who like to wrestle and do flips on my bed, it’s safe to say that they have worn out what I currently have. I’m really considering going with a series of cozy blankets. Layering textures and maybe even colors. Something like this. I’ve been rearranging […]
