Goodbye, Summer. It’s been a good one.

Golden Hour at Park

Sometimes you’re at the park and you notice that it’s perfectly lit in one of the last golden hours of summer. And, of course you must do a 30 second photo shoot to commemorate it. I’m so sad that it’s the end of summer, the end of no schedules, and the end of lazy days doing whatever we want. But, I also know that it’s important to celebrate the fun we had, and embrace this coming school year. 

Matching Girls Monday: family pictures

Finally sharing our most recent family picture from this winter. We snapped these ourselves before heading out for a family fun day and later I realized that everyone but me was rocking some new Old Navy finds. Clearly I should go buy some new Old Navy clothes for myself, right?

Matching Girls Monday: spring preview in Seattle

We have had a beautiful winter here in Seattle, with so much sun and warmth. I’m so looking forward to spring so we can get out even more and hike and bike with the littles.  But, for now, I’m going to just be grateful that this is our winter views. We may be wearing jackets … Read more

Matching Girls Monday: a day at the Seattle zoo

Matching girls together

In an extremely rare boy-less day, we got to take these sweet sisters out to the Woodland Park Zoo and let them call the shots. We stayed far longer than I thought we would at the otters, we visited the park we usually skip right by, and we fed the birds that my son isn’t interested in touching. All in all, it was a great day and they looked adorable in their matching Gymboree dresses and leggings. 

Matching Girls Monday: Beaches girls in Turks and Caicos

Beaches Mama and Daughters

This last week, we were living it up in Turks & Caicos. It was three years since our last visit, and it was so good to be back. My little one was just a few months old for our last trip, which seems crazy now. My matching girls were living their best life in their … Read more

Matching girls: Old Navy in fall

Mama and tween

My oldest came home from school camp this week, and I swear she aged a decade. She left a tween and now look at her. Of course, the fact that she’s experimenting with makeup doesn’t help things any. The day she came home, she wanted to plan a girls day with mani/pedis and some shopping … Read more

Matching Girls Monday: beach at sundown

Beach Day matching girls kissing

Living so close to so many beaches means that just about every day can be a beach day. While we love spending whole days at the beach, we also love that we can just stop into beaches on our way home to see the sunset and let the kids play for a bit.  No swimsuit … Read more
