spring awakening


happy spring, friends! this time of year brings about a whole new kind of hustle...baseball max and the wind-down of school...tailing a nearly 2 year old who likes the thrill of the chase...new green grass and garden dreaming and hopelessly trying to keep up with a house in full winter disarray. i'm sure you've noticed this has been a quieter season in our lives. after years of steady blogging, it's been a real pleasure sitting my camera down and being fully present with my family. a welcomed chance to breathe a bit deeper...focus less on myself...and soak up the imperfections instead of pushing them out of camera range.

but instead of pulling you down the road of my weird existential blogging crisis, i leave you with these pictures from easter and a promise to come here and share only genuinely...no shilling products that most of us couldn't wish to afford, no putting pressure on my kids to be anything other than themselves (i'm talking to you sweatpants wearing/bed moved to the middle of the room max!). just pictures and words of real moments when the mood strikes me. and in the meantime, you can picture me knee deep in motherhood...still finding time to paint and keep my shop running...and hoping all of you get a chance to create space and clarity in your own lives where it's needed.

xoxo

  2. I am glad to "see" you here again...no matter how often you post...I was thankful to see you put some photos on instagram just to know you are "ok" -- whatever that means from a stranger who only sees whatever you post on this blog. Happy Easter and Spring! Yay!

  6. I love this. Thank you for being honest. This is seriously the FIRST time I've seen a blogger say that she's slowing the blog down to focus on more important things and actually mean it. I miss your posts, and will continue to. But this actually makes me more excited for the times that you will blog :)

  7. beautifully said! It's sad sometimes, it's obvious when other well known mom/lifedtyle bloggers "push" for certain posts, images , their kids and husbands looking a certain way for the audience. Imaprecistemtour authenticity and your true passion which is being a mother be in the forefront. Wonderful!
