July Mood Board

Back in May I curated visuals that completely scream summer here in the Arizona desert. However, when I think about summer for the opposite coast? Well, let’s just say it’s that all-american, jumping off the dock with your Golden Retriever before heading to that crab boil at your friend’s house in the Cape kind of […]

And Then There Were Two

They call us multi-passionate entrepreneurs. Which sounds a lot better than “one person, too many ideas” I guess. When I first heard that phrase I suddenly felt understood, justified and supported. Going through my whole life as the crazy creative one with wild ideas and too many ambitions, my energy and soul finally felt calm. […]

Dear Blake

My dearest Blake, We have had ten sweet years together, darling. Ten years filled with wonderful memories, moments that have made us giggle so hard that our sides hurt as well as some rough patches. I have stories upon stories of moments that you have struggled through when it comes to putting yourself out there. […]

A Dessert Called Pazookie

Summer time in our house means later evenings, more time together and of course, treats. Whether it be icees and popsicles to stay cool in the heat or dessert after dinner, we indulge a little more than usual because we have the extra time. So today I wanted to share with you a dessert called […]

Fourteen Years and Counting

So here we are, my darling. Fourteen years and counting. They say when people get married too young they risk the chance of growing apart instead of growing together. They say that you should be more established and settled in life before you commit to someone else because then you have a grip on what […]

A Getaway to the Mountains of Flagstaff

We’ve recently gotten a taste of freedom that we have missed for so long and with the Memorial Day holiday, we decided to escape the Phoenix desert  with a getaway to the mountains of Flagstaff, Arizona. Short, sweet and absolutely perfect. I don’t think anything could have possibly wiped the smiles off of our faces […]

Dear Blair

My dearest Blair,  The other day you turned to me and said, “Mom… can you believe I am going to be in Kindergarten this year? Will you take care of Brooks for me while I am gone every day?” Oh, my darling. If you only knew how much I cannot believe those very words. And […]

The Art of Slow Living

Our favorite tunes from our family playlist quietly filled the evening air as we sat and watched the sun set on the desert. We talked about going to the movies with friends, how many times a day is just the right amount for the pool, the road trips we have been wanting to take and […]

A Father’s Day Gift Idea and Tradition

This post has been sponsored by American Greetings. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I still remember to this day as a kid on any number of holidays – Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, my mother’s birthday – seeing a greeting card propped up on the kitchen counter that my Dad would leave behind in […]

May Mood Board

I had to take a break from these for a bit with so much going on in the studio, but oh, how I missed them! For the May mood board, my soul is feeling the desert. It’s summer and there is nothing like it here in Arizona. Such a neutral landscape, but still so much […]

What Dreams Are Made Of

We made many sacrifices to finally say yes to living a life of working for no one else but ourselves – like humble summers. And limiting the clothing budget. And being a one (paid off) car family. And that one car not being large enough to even fit our family after having grown by another […]
