after fashion month madness ended in october, i decided to take a week off and head to missouri with hazel to check in with family.

it was a great trip - we spent the first part camping in warsaw, missouri with my mom/larry and checked out the heritage days festival and a craft fair. then we headed back to jefferson city to spend quality time with dad/jean and get wild with hazel's cousins.

it was so great to see hazel jump in and play with her cousins. i wish we could be around family more often. but we'll take what we can get!

so it's taken a little bit but i'm starting to come to terms with most likely losing everything on my computer, which includes my backup of photos of hazel's first year and a half. obviously not over it, but i'm working on it.


and since my film camera has decided to crap out as well (zero breaks given recently) i'm relying on the trusty 'ol iphone to at least be able to continue to document our little lives and adventures.

Technical Errors
the last month has been full of technical errors. 

my dear old leica crapped out (again) on the second day of our trip to missouri. then last week my laptop bit the bullet with all of my photos from 2015. oh, and then it took me three days to figure out my login information for flickr to be able to post here. sooooo that's cool.

really hoping we can save the data from my computer. take all the documents and programs you want but give me back my photos!

i have the pleasure of being a contributing photographer for the adorable new boho burbs mom blog, Painted Sidewalks. it's a great opportunity for me to be shooting, as well as a wonderful way to get inspired by some of the other local ladies i'm surrounded by.

the first thing i shot for them is this adorable nursery tour filled with one of a kind nicknacks, patterns and treasures.

i'm taking a week off from freelancing and heading to missouri tomorrow with hazel. we weren't sure when the next time we'd get a chance to catch up with family was going to be, so we jumped on the opportunity. why not, right?!

looking forward to giving these two little ladies (and hazel's cousin caden!) a big 'ol squeeze.

Moss Drop DIY
it's been awhile since i've felt like i had time to fiddle around with random DIYs. 

after working full time (and then some) for the past six weeks, commuting, coordinating a kitchen remodel, daycare and daily babysitter, and trying to just have some fun here and there - i haven't found much time to get crafty.

but today was my first weekday off in awhile so i took full advantage of hazel's nap time and made these cute little moss drops to hang in the window. i love how they turned out!

it feels good to be back.

Our Wedding Day
three years ago today i married this joker and our life together has been better than i could have imagined. we've gone on some amazing adventures and turned our life together into it's own adventure, not knowing what's around the next corner but happy to explore it together.

we celebrated our 'leather' anniversary early by taking a day trip to Cowtown, NJ last weekend. We walked around the flea market, bought a few little things then headed to lunch then back to maplewood. it was a nice little trip for the two of us to do together.

i sure do love this guy.
