Summer Smores



We’ve done pretty well on our summer bucket list! Top of the kiddo to-do’s was a fire and smore’s. Not pictured: Pizza Sandwiches wrapped in foil. They weren’t a huge hit.

This was our last family day at Am’s house in Rockport before she moved. I’m happy we were able to make some cozy memories during this chapter of our lives.

Going to be honest, this has probably been the weirdest summer I’ve ever had as an adult. Every summer in the past defined by a family that doesn’t look the same anymore.

I feel new to life with fresh memories of the one before. Often unsure of what I trust or believe.

I know I love James and Leo. I know I love my friends and I trust them. I’m so grateful for my supportive circle in Amethyst and my sisters.

Typically, I’m dreading the turn from summer to fall. Usually, entering a state of solemn mourning rolling into September. This year, I’m feeling hopeful and free. Excited to get to know myself more as someone who is fully supported in exploring what I want out of this next chapter of life. We will see!

As I told Am yesterday, there’s always Spirit airlines and Vegas when it gets too cloudy. Probably take another trip late this fall/early winter.

James & Leo had a fun regular-kid summer for the first time in a few years. We only visited resorts a couple times and have enjoyed calming down a bit. We’re all very excited to start school again later this week!

“The cream is bitter!” Jamie said trying the not-to-sweet perfectly made whip cream from Zola’s on our morning date. Just yesterday. This morning, I ordered a triple shot white coffee, half pumpkin half white chocolate, oatmilk latte from another shop. Bitter Coffee. They don’t dump the first round of shots and that’s something I know […]

I’m hopeful and reminiscing. In his childhood bedroom. By the white noise of a generic white fan. Kissed only by natural light and surrounded by our children’s toys. With Trader Joe’s Quiches and Mango Pompelini. I remember the day I snuck up alone. 13 years old, I found his wallet by his bed. I cautiously […]

What a great time to be posting these Tacoma Family Photos at Titlow Park! I currently have TWO more mini sessions available for December 2, 2023 in Auburn, Washington. These are most commonly used for family photos but can be used as a mini engagment session, mini senior session, anniversary photos, or just about anything […]

5:20am. “Wake up beautiful yoga baby” My morning alarm reads. What if everything you ever wanted in life was riding on this? Health, happiness, wealth, joy, aspirations, ability to love in the healthiest ways, and confidence rode on just one or two things you already suspect to be the key? For me, it’s always been […]
