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

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 received the snarkiest comment about the kids costumes. “Wondering why the outfits are so tiny,” “Do they get point for having abs?” Made me laugh! Girls of all sizes can be dancers. None of their costumes are inappropriate. They are part of the showmanship of each dance number. While some cover more skin, some costumes do not. Allowing the technique to be showcased. 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!

Playing Photographer

by Jesse on April 7, 2016

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 a few photos we got.

First Born

by Jesse on March 28, 2016

dec-2015-5

First borns are special. They break us in and we experience everything as a parent, for the first time with our oldest children. My guy seems to be growing super fast these days. Not looking like a baby any more! All grown up and so much fun!

I usually do birthday photos. This year we have been so busy, but back in December I was able to capture this photo of Rhett. It has quickly become a favorite. I love him in his new glasses, they are so very him.

Love you Rhett!

 Happy Monday, friends!

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

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 […]

Ever since I saw this photo I’ve been coveting a dark accent wall. The cozy and inviting vibe it lends really calls to me. I do have a similar shade in my entry and love the depth it give the space. I even went as far as to paint my ceiling in our dining a […]

Happy New Year friends! I’ve been a bit MIA lately, trying to keep up with my kids activities. When Christmas and New Years  pass I almost feel like it’s the start of a new season. I tend to want to rearrange or paint, to refresh a room or rooms. So I’ve started a to-do list […]
