growing

Our family is growing.

We are expecting our third baby this summer.  This is one of the main reasons I have been absent.

The first trimester of this pregnancy has been, by far, my most challenging.  Now that I am well into my second trimester, I am feeling pretty good (tired, always - but good).  My heart has already grown to love three.

I am looking forward to holding this sweet baby in my arms.

coffee with my mom

A recent morning spent with my mom.

For as long as I can remember, my mother has started her day with with a cup of coffee.  As a little girl, I remember the aroma filling the house every morning.  Of course, I didn't have an appreciation for it back then.

And I'd like to think there was a reason for that.  So that now, I can truly appreciate our conversations over a hot cup of coffee.  Conversations I don't think I was ready to have back then.

there's something about spring

I hope you had a great Easter weekend.

This year's Spring weather was simply gorgeous.

A few photography projects that I have inspired me lately...

+ Between Girls, a passage to Womanhood - Photographer Karen Marshall captures the emotional bond between girls from age 16 and their identities as women today in their 40s.

+  The Value of a Dollar - Photographer Jonathan Blaustein captures pictures of real food - at the cost of exactly one dollar.
