Rory turns one

Saturday, October 25, 2014


It's crazy to think in one short month my baby will be one.  I will save you the sap, but needless to say he has stole my whole heart and I hope be never gives it back. Here's to you Mr. Rory man, momma loves you. Can't wait to celebrate your first year of life.

Designer Crush 01 // Corina

Monday, October 13, 2014


I am totally crushing on the work of graphic designer, Corina. I am so envious of designers who have amazing handtype work because this is something that doesn't come easy for me. Corinna in particular has a fluidity and naturalness in her handtype that I admire. Check out her blog and portfolio to find out more about this talented lady.

Some recent branding work for Brutto Enterprises. A private business consulting enterprise, run by an incredibly inspiring man, whom I am lucky to call my father. Such a fun opportunity to help him with the branding of his new business venture. **more to come soon.

Ever since having Rory my interest in photography has only grown. I don't whip out the camera often and I am still working with a kit lens, but I can't help but "play" photographer with my cute little subject. I am hoping to post more about my attempts at this whole photography thing...sharing tips, some of my favorite photoshop tricks and what not. I am still learning and the whole lighting thing is tough, I still have to bring all my photos in photoshop and adjust the curves and lightness/contrast, but hey, I am learning.

Here are a few pics I snapped of little man in a place we find ourselves quite often throughout the day...mommas bed. Any photo taking tips for this newb? Any lens recommendations. I am currently working with an old canon rebel from college.

TGIF

OOooooEEeeeee, it's the weekend baby! Time to lather on some sunscreen and get some pool time in. Summer has started.

Attempting solids, this particular evening we tried carrots. Pretty surprised he liked them since we are not a fan of our other fellow orange vegetable mr. sweet potato, but hey I am not complaining. I read somewhere that it takes 13 tries to get your kid on board with a food he seems to have an aversion to. I think we are on try number 7 for sweet potato...I will not give up!

We spent fathers day with my family and the in-laws so the day before we went out for pizza as a family of three. Think this may be our new fathers day tradition.

Going to share this recipe as soon as I get my hands on another watermelon, but I made this amaze strawberry jalapeƱo margarita with the vitamix the other night.

Rory James: 6 months

Thursday, June 19, 2014



I can't believe it has been over 6 months with my love and I have yet to gush over him on the blog. I feel like I have reached over sharing status on instagram, so I guess the only logical thing to do is to start photo dumping and lamenting on his milestones in a place where one can avert there eyes if need be.

So here we are, over six months in and I can say with all honestly that parenthood has been the most unbelievably awesome thing. I still stare at him in wonder and awe that he was once was in my belly and I am part of his creation. He is a joy and such an easy going baby. He started sleeping the night around 2.5 months (praise jesus, sleep deprivation is no joke) going to bed around 7, waking up around 7:15. We started solids (avocados & watermelon are his favs at the moment) but still prefers the boob milk. He is definitely a mommas boy and loves to give me slobbery open mouth kisses and tug on my hair. Needless to say we are in love. Rory James is such a special little dude.

I am so glad that in my sleep deprived stupor that first month that I began this little photo series you see above. Each month I wheel down my ikea office chair from my office upstairs, put it in front of our white curtain in our bedroom and take a pic. Love seeing how much he changes month to month and you can see his little personality develop in these as well. Ahh so cute!
