In my happy place. ✨ .
For me there’s definitely a few.. in the kitchen creating, drinking coffee from a mug at a sweet little cafe (drinking from a mug tastes way better, right? 😆) and getting lost in antique stores.. Here’s to the weekend and finding time for our happy places. .
Where’s your happy place?
Take a second for introspection. Right now.
Are you doing what should be done?
Do you feel “correct” where you are?
Are you happy?
Is your story progressing the way you need it to?
Take time for introspection and realign yourself with your destiny. It’s calling you as much as you are calling it.
The smaller the effort you put into manifestation, the more you’re being manifested upon.
One of my favorite things to do is shoot large families- it is a challenge to quickly pose and plan where everyone should be when you have different patterns, color shades, and heights. I love it! It must be because I grew up around several large families and married into one- but I just LOVE them!
This gorgeous family believe it or not is missing 5 siblings! They are one of my favorite big families in the whole world. ❤️ They are the reason we ended up all the way out here in WA (from NY). Whenever family or friends visit- yes we love to go see mount rainier, Seattle, and all the other popular places- but at the very top of our list, we want them to meet this incredible family, our favorite part of Washington.
The changing seasons of our lives are not left up to chance...
Today was one of those heart filled days.. the kind where you don’t want it to end. We made caramel apples, watched The Great Pumpkin, went to the pumpkin patch and got lost in a corn maze.. I love spending time with my nieces.. they grow up so fast. 💕
I recently turned my Applesauce layer cake into a no fuss sheet cake and topped it with Brown Sugar Buttercream... and I maybe just had another slice. 😉
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Finished this clam-snacking otter from my story the other day.
Help!! I’ve been collecting some vintage frames... which only means one thing. Some new paintings are in the works. I’m hoping to have them ready for the holidays... but I need your help! ⠀

Today, did not go as planned.. like at all. .
Every day is a gift. Our lives are so busy and full that we can often miss opportunities to bless others right around us. .
Today, was one of those reminders for me, that ‘my’ agenda is not always the best one. I’m so thankful for this lesson today and that I was able to be available to someone who needed me.
I’ve been dreaming of October for months now and am so grateful we made it. .
I’ve been going at full speed since May. I’m looking forward to this month of quiet, making meals for myself (if you know me.. you know this rarely happens 🤷🏼♀️), planning ahead for the holidays, and meeting new 2019 couples. .
Today, I spent an entire day at home and we brought in some of our fall foliage. Even as the flowers are fading, there is still beauty all around.
Washington has some pretty good mountains

If only I could bottle up a tranquil sea and always carry it with me. #inktober #inktober2018
Well hello class of 2019! This senior was so fun and gorgeous and I had an amazing time working with her- there are soooo many to choose from so you’ll be seeing more of this sweet girl! 😊 Also- seniors these days have REALLY raised the bar! I’m all 👀 When I graduated it was not quite this graceful! #seniorpictures #iwasstilladorkmysenioryear #raisingthebar
Hello October. .
This is my favorite month of the year.. I think it wins over even my birthday month. 😆 I love the chance to slow down a bit, take in the beauty of all the changing colors, enjoy those fall flavors once again (pumpkin and apple everything! 🙋🏼♀️) .
This applesauce cake was a frequent treat growing up and I still think it’s one of my favorites. All those warm fall spices mixed in with the applesauce making a deliciously moist cake and paired with Cream Cheese Icing. Added now to our seasonal menu. 🍎
I loved these candid Mommy and daughter snuggles. Once the sun went down, the temperature did too and baby C just wanted to be cozy with mama and that blanket. ❤️
Once again... how did we get here? Hello October 1st + a new BLOG post went live today (link in profile). I’m sharing my top 5 podcasts right now. I’m seriously obsessed with podcasts! I listen to them everywhere, when I’m painting, doing dishes or grocery shopping! -
Also I need podcast suggestions 👇🏻 what are some of your favorites??
