This past week was my baby brother’s 15th birthday, I still call him my baby brother. Ever since I moved 80 miles away I don’t get to see him very often but of course I had to make the drive to celebrate another year. After we had dinner we decided we wanted to go to the beach to watch the sunset, so off we went to Manhattan Beach. The only thing I miss living out in the desert is being 5-10 minutes away from the beach.
Being able to share a sunset with my little brother and family was nice. It’s these little moments that we make memories of that bring me the most joy. Happy birthday Sebastian! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

One of the things I love about Spring is the way the light begins to shift in the morning. The sun begins to rise from behind the mountains casting the most glorious rays of light across this little road I travel to take my daughter to school. There is a lonely tree in the middle of a field and, when Spring arrives, it takes my breath away every morning. This is one of my favorite pictures I took last week, it captures exactly what I described.
Wishing you a great weekend and a Happy Easter!

I have never been so happy for Spring to arrive. I always talk about how spoiled we are in southern California but this year we actually had a winter, we even got snow! The winter months seemed to drag on for ever and let me tell you about the mood… not pretty. The last two years have been filled with challenges and health issues and this year started off the same. Surgeries, downtime and way too much time to spend online doing absolutely nothing.
The weather has finally started to warm up, flip flops have made their way back into our lives and all is right with the world again. I was out driving around the other day and noticed the trees and fields blooming, such a beautiful sight. I love the longer days and the energy that comes along with it. Evening walks with the kids surrounded by new life is just what I need to get this year back on track. Remember to take the time to stop and look at all the beauty taking place around you.

Back in May I introduced you guys to baby Benjamin in this post. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure again of speaking with Marina, Benjamin’s mother. She wanted to get photos done for Christmas cards, and I thought how can it be Christmas if the year just started? … yea, 11 months ago! Where does the time go.
So we met up last weekend for pictures of Benjamin along with his three cousins. Let me tell you, I’m used to chasing my kids around to snap pictures, but the pressure was on. Two babies, one three year old and a fine young man. I definitely had my work cut out for me but it was a blast! Let me share with you some of my favorite shots from that day…. the last one I die for! Now it’s time to get to work on my Christmas cards. Happy Thursday!
