Yes, it’s another personal post.  I’m not shooting client work while out on maternity leave, but I have been peeking at Ashley’s galleries (she’s been shooting like crazy!) and might have to swipe some of her gorgeous work to show you.  Today I just wanted to share a few random favorite things, the kind of things I’m excited about and would bring up over coffee . . . if I ever left the house to get some coffee.


*These mittens.  My sister-in-law knits them and I’m so thrilled she put up an etsy page.  The honey comb pattern comes across a bit art deco, and the weight is cozy and perfect.  My girls love theirs, so perfect for covering your ears or eyes to block out your mom and her annoying camera:

*Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots by Sharon Lovejoy

I love this book!  So inspiring and FULL of ways to make gardening an adventure with your kids. Pair it with a Territorial catalog and you’ve got yourself a good time.  Maybe you’ll get to read it if I ever return it to the library . . .


*Lactation Cookies.  

They’re basically oatmeal chocolate chip with a little flax and nutritional yeast thrown in.  I like to emphasize the word “lactation” whenever they are mentioned to discourage my husband from eating them.  I obviously need them all to myself.


People kept telling me about this shop, and I kept avoiding it.  (coffee lover here)

It’s amazing, my top three so far:  Citrus Lavender Sage, Samurai Chai Mate, and Youthberry Wild Orange Blossom.

The girls and I have totally replaced our afternoon hot chocolates with tea time.

*Post Partum Depression Series over on Creative Mama.  Encouraging if you are or  have suffered like this.  Worth a read if you haven’t to get a little insight into what your friends might be going through.

*My brilliant brothers have a series of film shorts airing on the OWN channel right now.  I LOVE what they’ve done, the way they’ve filmed the stories, and the people they found to feature.  Check them out of yourself.

Speaking of brilliant little brothers . . . .

How can I tell which ones are done by the boys? Is there a list somewhere? I know the running one is by them. While i enjoy watching clips, I just want to see what the boys are doing!

Totally! Any short with the word “Pioneer” in the title is theirs. Only three are up right now, I hope some of the others go up soon!
