The Mountains are Calling..

I'm off to the mountains! Tomorrow we leave for Colorado for a family reunion, and I'm so excited to return to my favorite state. Each year we try to visit Colorado, and in the last nine years I think we've been 8 times. We considered moving there at one point too. I think what I love most is the fresh air, the cool nights and warm days and basking in nature's beauty. And the lack of int[...]

7 Months of Love

  Yesterday I was going through my phone trying to figure out how to get more free space and I came across some videos I took in the first few months of Holden's life.

A few thoughts on 29.

  On Friday I entered the last year of my 20s, which kind of terrifies me but also has me eager to know what's in store for the years to come. Each year that passes seems to be better than the last but so different from the one before it as well. There have been so many changes in my business and my life in the last three years - I never dreamed that once I quit my full time design [...]

'Knee High by the 4th of July'

Happy holiday weekend, friends! 'Knee High by the 4th of July' - that's always been the phrase of the summer for as long as I can remember. It refers to how high the corn should be by July, and when your dad runs detasseling crews in the summertime, the height of the corn was a big determinant on when he was going to be out of the house for a few weeks so my brother and sister and best frie[...]
