Six Months Old

July 15th, 2015

A whole half of a year that’s how long it’s been since you entered our lives. It’s been a really fun ride so far. In the past month you’ve continued to race ahead in your development. I want things to slow down, but I’m having a blast watching you discover the world.

Your flipping and flopping all over the floor!

How you’re THIS close to crawling, but for now you just scoot backwards little by little. Read the rest of this entry »

Five. Oh. Ones.

Ok, Levi’s, you got me.

I am in L.O.V.E. with these 501CT’s.

The hubs suggested I try them, but I think I wasn’t really convinced until I read somewhere that it was the one pair of jeans style bloggers simply have to own. Signed, sealed and delivered.

I bought two pairs the day I tried them on–one in this light-wash, CT (“custom tapered”) version and a stone-washed, destroyed, regular 501. I wear both pairs lots.

Ladies, I definitely recommend you try a pair or three.

I don’t wear dresses much these days. (Any woman who’s breastfed and/or pumped breastmilk can appreciate the reasoning here.) But when I do, I feel pretty darn great, especially after being big and pregnant for what seemed like forever. Read the rest of this entry »

Five Months Old

five months 2

Your second tooth. I can’t believe you have two now.

Your impressive ability to entertain yourself with just about anything. Like when we were at a restaurant the other and gave you a coffee sleeve and you turned it over and over in your hand curiously.

Your super-speed feedings. You had a lot of issues with breastfeeding in the beginning, but now you have it down, plus you speed through meal time. Read the rest of this entry »

Just Drapey Enough

My weekends have become an excuse to wear the coziest of clothes and pass them off as outfits. Although, truth be told, I’d wear the same to work. (Thank goodness I work in a casual office!) And true to San Francisco style, it’s always about the layers and the scarves. I’ve become fairly expert at putting these outfits together, if I do say so myself.

(By the way, I’m selling a couple of my drapey pants on Poshmark, here and here, in case you’re interested!) Read the rest of this entry »

Not Worth It.

I sometimes like to cook.

Other times, it just seems like a chore.

I’ll get excited about a new recipe–like these stuffed cabbage rolls. Don’t they look delicious and so much fun to make? Little pillows of meat smothered in a sweet tomato sauce. Read the rest of this entry »

A few weeks ago I took maternity photos of my pal Sarah and her husband. She’s 34 weeks along now, glowing and gorgeous, and I was honored to snap some photos of them around SF. Read the rest of this entry »

Those of you who know my husband know that he has great taste in clothes. He’s worked in apparel for years now–currently he’s a denim developer. He digs unique textiles with stories to tell. Read the rest of this entry »
