I met Maggie and her beautiful family 5 years ago, when our boys were in preschool together! Her son's name is Max too! Funny thing is we had finally picked our Maxx's name about a month before Jack had started preschool. So he was super excited that his baby brother was going to have the same name as his new best friend! He actually wanted me to name him Maxx Luke, after his second best friend, of course! Haha!
It was so nice catching up with Maggie and her sweet family the other weekend! They are always so welcoming! The sun was hiding when we arrived to Laguna Beach, but it was still soft and gorgeous! The beach just gives me such a peaceful feeling! Get ready for some cuteness overload between Max and his little sister Chloe.
I'M JANELLE MARINA

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
