  • I had a really hard week...it was one of those weeks where I felt worn out and beaten down and being actually sick with a cold that won’t leave doesn’t help. It was one of those weeks where my usually confident self felt...not so tall. I questioned everything, I just felt like I was never going to measure up and “okay, who can I let down next! Stand in line!” I know I’m not alone in this, 🙋🏼‍♀️ if you’ve ever felt this way! Please. So we know we’re not alone! 
I remember a year ago around this time I was going through a growth period with my photography, and well, I rolled up my sleeve and dug in and it pushed me to the next level of where I needed, so I assumed that this too will pass and it’s all in what I take from it. 
Luckily today, spending time with this magical one, her papa and a dose of sunshine sure helped. Love this little family of mine.

  • A Norah Jones song pops into my head when I look at this photo. It’s one of my favorite love songs....and my mind dances along with it. “And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me”

  • I asked my dear husband what he envisioned his Fathers Day since it’s coming up and he paused for a second and said “It just occurred to me that Fathers Day applies to me now, I kinda forgot. I was worried about getting a card to my own dad” which makes me laugh because honestly he’s the best damn father ever, like he couldn’t be more hands on if he tried. The fact that it didn’t occur to him says a lot about him as well. He’s either not that bright or he’s pretty humble. Jk. He’s the best. Thank the Lord for amazing fathers, or people who are father figured in our lives or our children’s lives. 
Also, there’s something so amazing about a tiny newborn in daddy’s hands...gets me every time!

  • Every other night, since Ro was about 5 months old and we were finally past that God awful witching hour, our routine is: sleep sack, story, lights out, sound machine on and a song. I usually rotate between 3 or 4 of the same songs that I play on my phone. We rock and I rub her back and breathe in this sweet magic that is my flesh and blood. The day could have been so damn stressful, I likely lost my patience at some point and this may have been the first time I’ve had a chance to sit all day. Suddenly all is forgotten when she melts her little 23 pound body into mine and we rock.

One particular favorite I can’t ever get enough of is Adele’s Sweetest Devotion: “I wasn’t ready then, I'm ready now
I'm heading straight for you
You will only be eternally
The one that I belong to
The sweetest devotion
Hitting me like an explosion
All of my life, I've been frozen
The sweetest devotion I've know”

I always wonder how can I capture this feeling. This devotion. This marvel at the human that was at one point the size of an apple seed. I can’t get over their little hands, the little crease where their wrist folds into their hands and their little dimples at each knuckle. It’s the sign they are still little a little while longer. The little fingers that want to explore. The little hands we want to hold onto forever and never let go. .
