IVY GOLD UPDATE.



you guys...being a mama to 2 is seriously kicking my butt.
we have been busy with preschool, play doh, legos,
weekly outings to disneyland, playdates with friends,
swimming in the pool, taking walks around the neighborhood,
and just trying to keep up with the kiddos.

i started teaching again in august,
but have been turning down photography.
i used to be the person who never said no.
i always had my foot in a million doors.
lately i've been trying to keep both feet
in my own door, to really be present
as i have my house full of little ones.

violet was a first child...
so she had monthly blog posts,
to help me document all her milestones.

oh, poor little ivy, the second child.
at least i have been trying my hardest
to keep up with taking her monthly photos, right?
we do what we can :)

3 months


4 months

but new mamas are allowed to be behind on life, right?

timree paint studio's blogger paint night last month!

timree gold is not only adorable,
but she is so sweet and has the most bubbly personality.
i just loved her!

she is an amazing teacher too!
her studio offers group and private paint classes,
and paint parties for birthday parties, baby or bridal showers, or any event.
and timree even does live event painting...wouldn't that be a rad wedding gift?!

here are a few photos from our paint party.

what an adorable studio too!

we each got to create our own painting,
with the help and guidance of timree herself.

brought my bestie nicole and we had so much fun together!

here i am with timree. she's the best!

FRESHLY PICKED MOCCASINS GIVEAWAY!


i had the pleasure of meeting miss susan petersen of freshly picked
when i was in SLC at the cricut explore event in january.
she was the sweetest girl ever!
she sent me some of her lovely moccs for my little girls,
AND...freshly picked is giving away a pair of moccs on my blog!

here is my favorite new pair: the heirloom moccs.
and an outfit i can't wait to put on my new baby girl this summer!


violet wears these moccasins everywhere, and they go with everything!
her feet grow so slowly, she wore the same pair for almost a whole year,
and they held up the whole time! so many great memories in these...
here she is wearing moccs when she learned to walk at 11 months.


they are perfect for learning to walk in because of the soft natural soles.
they are so easy for parents to get on and off,
and the best part is, violet is old enough to get them on and off herself now!
that makes it so much easier to get out the door!
