We love Daddy!

“Daddy, bu-bye?” is the first question each the morning. then, “Daddy at work!?” “Daddy…home…play!?” (with some extra jumbled “Lydia verbs” in there! ha!) is the most exciting thing when 5 o’clock rolls in. For both of us, cuz… He’s silly, he’s smart, he’s loyal, he’s fun, he’s wise, he’s calm, he’s strong, he’s handsome. He’s…

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…

A Name and a Blessing.

Today was so special. Lydia was given a name and a blessing by her Daddy. It was truly the perfect day, she had a perfect dress sewn by her Nannie, and it was a perfect blessing–all for a perfect little girl so fresh from her Heavenly Father!

Dixon Family Lake Powell 2014: “Speedo Amigos!”

Lake Powell with the fam is always a good time. Lydi’s first time in the water, on the boat, and at Lake Powell… in between her colicky scream tantrums, I’d say she loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚ And, oh the speedo part? Oh, those boys that we married……. no shots of it here, but let’s just say…

Welcome to the World Lydia! {7.4.14}

Not many words can describe the awe-provoking experience and miracle of giving birth. It all seems so surreal, yet so familiar at the same time. I feel so grateful and humbled that Heavenly Father blessed us with one of His special spirits. Soon (I say soon because it did not come at first for me!)…

Motherhood

Cam and I had such a blast filming this cute little one, she’s got us wrapped around her finger that’s for sure!! First grandchild, so as you can imagine there’s a lot of fighting for her on Sunday nights at Nannie and Papa’s. There’s very few greater things than being and Aunt and Uncle! We…

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…

Baby Krew’s Birth Story {9.10.13}

On September 10, 2013 I witnessed a miracle, truly a miracle. I am incredibly grateful that Jake and Amy allowed me to document the birth of their beautiful (and perfect in every way) baby boy, Krew. Being there to document those first tender moments as Jake and Amy welcomed their first child into the world…

Mike + Shanna Wedding {8.16.13}

Mike & Shanna tied the night! It was such a fun day, talk about swapping hats from wedding planner, to invitation designer, to wedding guest, to videographer! And, I think I like the last one the best! The best part of the day was watching these two in a little game of bowling at Boondocks,…
