Sweet Sundays // Waffle French Toast

Ok, it’s a little early for a Sweet Sundays, but everyday should be a sweet day, I say. And lets face it, I’m a rule-breaker. This is probably my new favorite thing to make… maybe because it’s just SO easy, or because it’s a blast to make. But mostly because it’s absolutely, amazingly, and utterly […]

Be Mine

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! We had a pretty low key one here… which was actually very lovely and caused me to forget updating the blog when I meant to. Sigh. I don’t know if I remember celebrating this day with just staying home before… we usually go out or have the kids babysat. But we […]

Turkish Delight

We haven’t been eating out too much lately, it’s just something we’ve been doing less of to conserve and to monitor our diets… But it’s just such a lovely treat to go out and enjoy a nice dinner out together. We love the restaurants on 4th street, a long row of colorful and multi-ethnic options […]

Princess Bride

There are some things that get me really riled-up to photograph (nothing too naughty mind you, well, not most of the time anyway..). As soon as I came across this dress, I knew I had to have it for the shop. Just to make everything that much more stunning. So here she is, in her […]

Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to all of you ladies and gents! I hope it was a good one. You can bet ours was as sweet as pie! Well… We didn’t originally expect a particularly “fruitful” Christmas, as this has been a bit of a down time in our lives, financially speaking. I think I’ve mentioned […]

Sweet Sundays // Chocolate Coffee Mousse

This recipe is so great though, because its just so FAST (no eggs!) but….Doh! I didn’t get this done in time for Sunday, so it will be a Sweet Sunday on a Monday. Well… seriously, you had a rough start to the week… right? Forget that this is a day or a month late. Make […]

Sleepy Head

Lately, Ayla has been skipping a lot of naps. So this set of photos really capture a special part of the day that I miss, to catch up on work and projects, and just re-energize for the next round of spinning heads and crawling on ceilings. You know… I’m always a little envious of parents […]
