bon weekend



I must preface this post by telling you this photo has nothing to do with anything…I just like it. Ok, now that we’ve cleared that up…happy friday friends! I know I promised photos of our updated kitchen, but it turns out my kitchen only has perfect light for about two hours a day, which seem to always happen when I’m toddler wrangling. Plus, keeping the kitchen clean enough for an attractive photo is a feat in itself…my point being, it may be a little bit until I can “reveal” it. Keeping it real folks! I hope you have a lovely weekend planned…here are some links that inspired me this week!

the adventures of fleur + mozart



In an effort to show Marie + Henry how much they were on my mind while traveling in France, I packed Fleur + Mozart (their beloved blabla dolls) into my luggage. I explained to them that they were going on an adventure with Mommy, and we would all be back soon! While it was a bit cumbersome to carry them with me everywhere, it meant the world to see their faces light up when they saw them with me, and honestly it gave me comfort, especially when alone at night and missing them intensely. Sure, I got a few stares, but mostly made people smile…I even had one person ask me for a photo with them! Don’t worry, they had a relaxing bath upon their return along with plenty of snuggles.

I wonder where they will travel to next?!



”A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

This photo happened while focusing on this one, and I just can’t get over it. It’s like they’re an old married couple or something! I love capturing a moment that no one would believe 2 year olds are capable of. Only 20 weeks left in the year…wow. I’m proud of myself for keeping up with this project…I’m already enjoying looking back.
