first dance class + sloane

09/08/2014

ever since finding out i was having a girl, i couldn’t wait to start her in dance. and today was the perfect day. sloane is two and just the age where i can start her in a studio. thanks to center stage, i’m fulfilling all my mommy dreams. she absolutely loved it and giggled the entire time.

silver lake, utah | july 2014

07/20/2014

this past weekend the kids and i went up to silver lake to walk around. it was the perfect day to escape the heat down in the valley. my twin sister and her little man were in town too, so they joined as well as my dad. utah is such a beautiful place and i take for granted how close so many amazing places are. i can only hope my kids remember these times spent together. for me, growing up consisted of going with my sister and my dad every saturday somewhere to explore and learn.

sloane: we don’t have a mattress for her big girl bed yet, but it makes the perfect place for her to play in. even though her face is bright, i love this picture for so many reasons that i don’t want to forget.
max: i snapped this as i was trying to get my lighting and i happen to just love how he’s just standing, taking it all in.

pipe cleaner crowns | valentine’s day

02/03/2014

i know you’ve seen a million pipe cleaner crowns, but i couldn’t resist making a heart one for valentine’s day. and of course i tried to make a manly one for max. he wasn’t having it, but he humored me anyway. surprisingly, sloane wanted to keep hers on. on sloane’s i tied a matching ribbon on the back so it can be adjustable. easy peasy.

sloane: she had insisted on wearing this Yo Gabba Gabba shirt for 3 days in a row. it’s a superhero shirt and i think she plays the part pretty well.
max: i can always find him playing on his mini iPad. he loves anything and everything on that thing.

this year i’m taking the challenge to photograph my kids once a week for the year. i love the idea, but it’s definitely a commitment.

max: had just finished his lego technic excavator he purchased with his christmas money. he was so happy when it was done.
sloane: i had caught her playing peek a boo with her miffy.

the new year.

12/31/2013

i’m not one for making new years resolutions. i find that they put too much pressure on a person, pressure not to fail, for me anyway. i prefer to re-evaluate my life periodically throughout the year as my needs, wants and circumstances are constantly evolving. this past year has been no different. of all the years thus far, this is one i look back on with mixed feelings. it brought to me the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. however, as we’ve heard over and over again, we wouldn’t be given our trials if He knew we couldn’t overcome them. and He certainly has helped me overcome and learn from my trials. this past year has defined me. and when all the dust has settled, i’m grateful for it.

so here’s to 2 0 1 4! here’s to creating moments & stories with my husband and kids, here’s to fostering and nurturing healthy relationships, here’s to not beating myself up over things i can’t control and the experiences that are just helping me appreciate life, here’s to giving myself a break and not feeling guilty if i need to put my feet up and drink a 44 oz diet coke, and here’s to each of my readers that you may find happiness and good health in the new year. thank you for making 2013 a great year.

cheers.
