Farewell 503

  Because if you know me, I hate goodbyes. And, somehow I became attached to every inch of that old house (squeaky floors and all) once I knew we were going to move. I miss the memories made at 503 Leona ๐Ÿ˜ข so, here’s a little memoir to the house that knew us as “newlyweds”…

Brazil 2015

It was a last-minute decision and I’m so glad we had the chance to do it! (next time, we’ll start the whole visa process a little earlier–holy work!) Brazil is something Cam and I have really wanted to do (Cam served an LDS mission there from 2009-2011). My favorite part honestly was seeing the places…

Palm Springs/Cali!

We decided to take the 10+ hour drive and head to Palm Springs for Spring Break since we had a “free” hotel voucher from when we got engaged back in 2012 ๐Ÿ™‚ It turned out to be a very fun, memorable, first real family (just the 3 of us at least!) trip! We stayed in…

Happy Valentines to our {one and only} Valentine!

we are convinced he is the best dad around! he works hard, plays lots, and has us smiling alllllll the time. “Hey Dad…” -Lydi (I couldn’t just pick one!)     he’s good at tennis! he speaks Portuguese! he is a Wildcat! (Oh wait, I like Cougars! ๐Ÿ™‚ haha!) and oh, did we mention we…

Christmas 2014!

Christmas this year was all the better with our sweet Lydia girl. And, once again Cam somehow surprised me and spoiled me rotten. We each got Lydi a gift and then tried to stay within a budget for each other–it’s so hard when you LOVE gift-giving like we do but I’m amazed how well we…

Halloween 2014

We couldn’t be just one thing (since I was set on Annie for our Lydi girl (her curly red hair–how could she not!?) and Cam was set on old people since last year!) so we did both!!

Springtime Bellies & Babes!

Here’s a few favorites of our last-minute spring belly bump shoot (when I drove past the orchards Saturday, my mind went crazy with ideas–I love spring and blossoms (awe, so feminine!)–so I booked a little sesh for that coming Monday!ย  Thankfully, I found a couple dresses in my closet the night before that still fit…

That one time in Beantown and NYC

Remember that one time that we (and by we, I mean I) blew our summer savings and surprised Cam with a little birthday surprise to Boston and NYC? Yeah, best decision EVER!! Seriously though, the memories we made together were some of my favorite yet! I was soooo uncertain whether I really should buy the…

{1st} Road Trip!

Well, we made it (I guess I should say my little Toyota Corolla made it! Over 100,000 miles and all!)! My annual clogging competition in Scottsdale, AZ was a little different this year–I dragged Cam along with me–once I said “tennis” he was all in (he’s usually a pretty good sport about my clogging and…

Birthday Girl! {22 years}

I like the idea of a birthday “week”ย  or a “birthday month”, but I’m still thinking it’d be cooler to have more than one birthday in a year cuz I get sad each time my birthday ends! This year, I decided it’d be fun to run 13.1 miles in the pouring rain (a little joking,…
