Weekly Dose of Edison

Weekly Dose of Edison

My little baby boy is growing up so quickly. I cannot believe he is almost one already. He was sleeping so sweetly the other day, and he reminded me of a peaceful little newborn baby. So of course I did what any good baby photographer would do…I had to break out my macro lens and get some sweet baby detail shots. :)

Backyard Update - Lots of Paint!

Backyard Update – Lots of Paint!

Those who follow me on Instagram may have seen some snapshots of my progress with this project this week (@apluscphotography). I have been busy painting all of our finds for the backyard in shades of white and cream so things will look more cohesive and like my dream shabby chic garden. I went through a few different types of paint before I found the ones that I liked the most. I ended up…

Wine Tasting & New Mom Fails

Wine Tasting & New Mom Fails

Recently, I was very excited to attend the Whole Foods Venice for the Fantastique French Wine Tasting and Gildras Coudrais Art Show at Whole Foods in Venice, CA. The proceeds from the event went to the Whole Planet Foundation. I thought it would be the perfect date night for my husband and I since it happened to fall on our anniversary weekend. I’m sure that most of the people attending went…

Garden Updates & How We Celebrated Our Anniversary

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.

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

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…

Weekly Dose of Baby Edison

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

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…
