It's no secret

I love this age!


So much so I'm devoting a special chapter of my work to these little milestones. Sitting, crawling, walking ... Little Love Sessions. Twenty minutes in your home, activity focused, centered on your little one. Contact me to find out more.


(Don't you just love those pursed lips.)

I really want to shoot more baby-babies this year (shoot as in photograph ;) ), so take me up on it. First born babies, last born, the caboose on the family train. Where-ever they are in your line up, squeeze me in. It'll be worth it. I promise. Sitters are my favorite. :)




The 1st Year is so incredible isn't it. We could learn a lot from little ones, about trying, following our instincts and loving every moment so much that we even clap for ourselves in pure enjoyment & surprise.

Of course if we treat ourselves right, we never stop learning; we never stop growing.


One of the best afternoons we've had in a long time. The fine art of pretzel making.


I want to share the recipe with you. Take time with your family.

Learn something new this week.

Even if it's only about each other.

  1. Mix 2 cups water and 1 package yeast.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon sugar.
  3. Add 4 cups flour & knead.
  4. Add 1 more cup flour and knead.
  5. Roll dough into rods. About 9-12" in length.
  6. Twist into pretzel shapes.
  7. Brush pretzels with beaten egg.
  8. Sprinkle with salt.
  9. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.


I'm so grateful for these little people in my life. They make my world go round.


Controlled chaos.


(And yes, they were delicious. Who knew pretzels could be that much fun for the whole crew!)

PS - Does this count as a "She's Crafty" post? Hmmm ...
