IKAT SUNDAY

Are you as in love with Ikat as I am these days?

This tunic spoke to me in ways only it could, when I lightly brushed against it in passing. It gave me a little shock, as most fabulous things do, and demanded my attention with that electric shock of yellow running perfectly through it’s spectacular blue and white pattern. Yup, it was infatuation at first glance. It also happens to be one part of my super comfy Alt SF outfit, but I still need to properly recap that now don’t I. Darn you Ikat top for reminding me just how behind I currently am…

A FUN TEAM UP TO GIVE YOU ALL SOMETHING AWESOME

determination
Happy Monday everyone!

I hope your Sunday was relaxing and exactly as it was meant to be… a recharge for the coming week.
I just love Sundays. The spiritual high more than makes up for the physical drain of dressing, packing and wrangling all three littles at church. The blessing of having my sister so close has been put work these past few months while Eric has been working like a mad man at the farmer’s markets and events, trying to meet and bring in new patients. He works so hard for his little family and I just adore him for it.

LOVING LATELY LINK UP / 5

JENNY_4

I’ve been making a much bigger point lately to really slow down and take everything in. Enjoy the smiles, the hugs, the kisses. To get down on the floor and roll around with the babies, to tickle them and relish in the pure joy of their giggles. To be as the clothing line Sonnet James put it ‘more playful’ with my children.

And more than that, to pause to capture the moment, if only with my faulty polaroid of a memory bank.
But definitely with a camera whenever I can.

I took the photo above during a recent family shoot and when the mom saw it she said ‘you captured him perfectly’. I managed to capture that one pure moment of playful bliss while chasing him around that day.

These are the types of memories and moments I want to always remember, and that I try so hard to capture with my camera.
These are the things I’m trying harder to fall in love with over and over again.

Maybe you’ve seen this article circling Facebook lately. I love what she has to say here about her daughter teaching her to slow down and enjoy life. How that one moment of clarity really struck her and made her realize she needed to change and allow her child to learn and grow at her own pace and not rush her along just to follow the agenda.
I used to think that families who were always late were lazy or needed to ‘get with it’ a little more. But now I see more clearly. Now I see that they are they the ones willing to sacrifice the schedule for the individual needs. That maybe they are the ones more ‘with it’ than the rest of us.

LITTLES LOVE … (CANDY KIRBY DESIGNS)

From Sunny California comes this super fab and fun little’s shop – Candy Kirby Designs.
Wait, haven’t we heard that name before? Probably.
Erin and I met up at Alt SF and hit it off right away.

Being the kindred driven and highly ambitious spirits that we are, plus we are both twin moms to boot!
It was a match made in heaven.
Not unlike this season’s line of leggings, blankets & fitted crib sheets. I am simply drooling over these Ikat designs and fun, fresh color schemes.

My chubby wubby simply needs to be in spandex I tell ya. I mean, what’s better than a little chunk in skin tight pants? And matching sheets and blankets? Oh good heavens.
