My babies have had a growth spurt and I needed some time to get adjusted to the new changes. Sippy cups have officially left the home and have been replaced with sports bottles! Maxx turned 3 in Feb and was super excited to start pre school and soccer! He is too funny -he tries to keep himself from smiling by biting on his cheeks, I guess its the cool thing to do! Why does he look like a 6 year old in this picture :(
My Jack Jordan is weeks away wrapping up the first grade! I didn't realize how much homework, projects and reading they have these little humans doing at the age of 6! What happened to painting and story time!?! And Sports... Oh sports! I never got to play any sports so this is all new to me... I made the mistake by signing him up for winter basketball and spring baseball -not knowing that they totally overlap! I was going nutty for a couple of weeks there, with 4-5 days of sports and practices (I'll never do that again!). Jack loved the busy schedule but this mommy needed a breather! I guess you can say I'm officially an amateur sports mama! :)
I'm loving these ages -the boys have more in common and are able to play together longer than 5 minutes now! Woo hoo! We have found our new groove and have hit the ground running with tons of weddings to share with you guys -cant wait!!!

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.
