Hippity Hoppity Happy Easter Day

Hippity Hoppity Happy Easter Day


Hello! I hope you had the most magical Easter weekend.

We celebrated all weekend long & it was truly the best Easter ever. I wasn't sure we'd ever top our first Easter with our Magnolia --- our literal golden egg, but we did. And then last Easter was one of the worst days of my life. After losing our baby on Easter Sunday last year, I was determined to make up for it this year. I remember sitting on the sofa last year, body shaking from what I had gone through physically & emotionally, feeling an overwhelming sense of sadness. We watched an Easter service on TV & the message of hope in the midst of tragedy was carried in my heart all year long.

My Ten Best Tips For Photographing Toddlers

My Ten Best Tips For Photographing Toddlers


A few weeks ago my sister asked me to photograph my nephew, Ollie, for his third birthday. He wants all things airplane for his party. My sister made arrangements with a family friend to have photographs taken with their airplane. She just knew Ollie would be thrilled, and he was, especially when he was able to get inside the cockpit & touch all the buttons with the pilot headset on. Now Magnolia is obsessed with airplanes & is fascinated with them flying in the huge sky above.

My Birthday & Turning 38

My Birthday & Turning 38


On Sunday I woke up 38 years old. To be real, I must tell you I woke up with a sore throat & that made me one lovely birthday grouch! Ryan got up with Magnolia while I laid in bed a bit longer. When I got up, coffee was ready & pancakes were being made. And our sweet girl was walking around in her diaper, super excited, to tell me "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!" over & over again. She is obsessed with all things birthday related. If she sees a candle it's a cue to sing one of her favorite songs in the cutest little voice ever.

Miscarriage - Our Baby in Heaven

Miscarriage - Our Baby in Heaven


It's crazy to think that Magnolia has a baby brother or sister in Heaven. Miscarriage is such a sad & hard thing to talk about. Last year, after we found out our baby's heart had stopped beating, I shared the news on a blog post. I never came back to talk about what happened after my body finally decided to let it go. It was just too hard to talk about & all I wanted was for life to carry on. It's still really hard to talk about, but it's been a year now so I'm sharing a little bit about it.

Denim Overalls

Denim Overalls


My sister & I were picking up my niece from high school & we both saw a cute girl wearing overalls. And at the exact same moment we both decided & said out loud "getting some!" I still remember my favorite pair from my junior year & I'm quite happy to see they are making a come back! Now if we could just get the permed hairstyle to make a come back then I'd be set. Remember how easy it was to use some Paul Mitchell coconut scented mouse, use the diffuser & make your permed hair HUGE!?!?

Ok, so back to the overalls. I've had so many questions about mine & they are from H&M here. They have a fun little side zip detail that makes them feel modern & not so 1990s-ish. My sister already got the exact same pair & now we have to make sure we don't wear them on the same day because that would just be a little too weird for our liking. 


I've rounded up some other favorites, including a shorts & dress version, both would be perfect for spring/summer. 

So tell me what is something from the 1990s that you'd love to see make a come back?!?
