Garden Updates & How We Celebrated Our Anniversary
First, I am going to start this post with a few exciting seasonal updates with our garden.
The first is…I finally pruned our grave vines! They were already existing when we bought the house, and in desperate need of pruning. I estimate that it has been at least 3-4 years since they were last pruned. When we bought the house, we were in escrow during the time they should have been pruned. I was…
This little guy is growing up so fast…he so badly wanted to help his daddy work on something outside in the patio.
Join Us for Wine Tasting and Art!
Who wants to join us for an evening of wine tasting and art?! Whole Foods in Venice, CA is hosting a charity event this Saturday, March 1st benefiting their Whole Planet Foundation. There will be wine tasting, petit fours and work by the artist Gildas Courdrais, who designed the labels on the bottles in the photo above. I love the label with the rabbit in particular. To me, it feels like it…
DIY Sensory Toys - Pinterest Fails & Mommy-Made Winners
Sensory toys are all the rage these days on Pinterest and elsewhere on the internet. Edison had his first exposure to sensory toys at a great play date we went to a few months back. The group leader had all different kinds of sensory stations set up, including a bucket of corn starch (Edison’s favorite), a bubble machine, homemade finger paints, sensory boards, and marshmallow goo. Our little guy…
I mentioned previously that I wanted to spend some time working on some fine art self portraits, and I’m so happy that I’ve been making the time to do it.

Updates & Decisions!

I have been having a challenging time lately with the photography business, and considered closing down the business (original post here). However, that night at the…
Weekly Dose of Baby Edison
I skipped last week, so technically this is a double dose. Edison and I have been working hard on our garden, preparing everything for spring. He has been a good little helper (for the most part). It is really cute to see him studying everything I am doing in the garden. I even caught him a couple of times putting little bits of dirt into flower pots, just like he saw me doing. :) I can’t wait…
Valentine’s Day at the Queen Mary with Ehrmann Mixim Launch Party
Last week for Valentine’s Day, we had the honor of attending the Ehrmann Mixim Greek Yogurt launch party on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. The Queen Mary was transformed into the Love Boat for the event, all lit up in pink. After growing up in the Long Beach area, I have been to the Queen Mary many times in my life and I have never seen her look so beautiful as she looked all dressed up in…
This post has been put off for a long time now. I kept feeling like our living/dining room was never “finished”.

If you read my last post about my photography business, you know that there are some things I have been struggling with lately.
