The Wonderful World of Food
Adeline turned 6 months on Saturday! Oh my! Here I am crying again! This whole being a mom thing has turned me into quite a hot mess! Anyways, we planned to introduce her to the wonderful world of food once she turned 6 months old and I have been counting down the days! I had done a tone of research and asked other mamas and decided that we would wait until 6 months for a number of reasons and we have decided to do a modified form of Baby Led Weaning. Adeline had been showing signs of being interested in food for a few weeks… She would quite literally pull my plate of food towards herself while sitting on my lap during mealtimes! It is fun to watch her be so interested in something. Hey eyes get so wide! If only we could know what babies think! Continue reading “Wonderful World of Food”
The world we live in is crumbling down around us! It has been one tragedy after another it seems lately. I know that has a lot to do with social media as it is more in our faces and constantly being streamed in our news feeds, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Instead of banning together we are tearing each other apart. Innocent people are being killed, those responsible for keeping us safe are being gunned down in the streets, a child dies at Disney World… “The happiest place on earth”. My heart breaks for the world. Even more so my heart breaks for lack of community I have witnessed in these past weeks. When we are going through hard times having others there to support us and show empathy can make all the difference. This seems to be lacking in today’s culture. We’ve grown accustomed to sitting behind a computer screen spewing out our opinions and feelings. With little to no thought of how they might effect another. People say the cruelest of things on social media. Things I’m sure they would never be so quick to say to anothers face. Continue reading “How can we treasure what truly matters?”
Wild Basin Lodge Wedding *Sara + David*
It was my first wedding back after having my precious little lady… It was tough to be away from her, but this was a perfect wedding to start my season with! Sara and David were simply wonderful and their wedding was at the breathtaking Wild Basin Lodge!
What a beautiful spring day in the Rocky Mountains…

It feels as if these past four years have flown by as fast as the train rushing past us in the image above. It has been quite a whirlwind of ups and downs, more adventures than I thought possible, and making the biggest choice we could have. This man is my best friend. My everything. My love. He knows me better than anyone and I thank God for him every single day. We kind of did it backwards and spent our first anniversary in Paris! How can we top that?? This weeks Paris in Photographs post is a little different and is all about our Parisian Anniversary! It was something I never dreamed possible, but it happened and it was incredible… Continue reading “Parisian Anniversary”
A magical moment during story time
I love books. Everything about them. I love their covers, binding, and the enchanting words within… Story time is one of my very favorite things! My husband would tell you I collect books and I guess that’s true. I have more books than there is space for in our little two bedroom condo, but I just can’t seem to help myself. I do have a bad habit of starting books and getting distracted with another book and then another and another. I have many books with bookmarks in them on my shelves, but I fine with that! There are many strange things that I could be collecting so I think having an abundance of the written word is just fine! Continue reading “Story Time”

This area, in my opinion is the most enchanting neighborhood in Paris! Continue reading “Sacré-Coeur – Church on the hill – Paris in Photographs”
Paris in Photographs – City of Lights
Paris is a beautiful city…Both during the day and the night. The streets are sparked with light during the evenings and romance fills the air (as cheesy as that sounds, its true)! An evening stroll down a cobblestone street full of side walk cafés is one of my favorite things to do in this incredible city! Continue reading “Paris in Photographs City of Lights”
Becoming Mom to sweet baby Adeline
I always knew I wanted to be a mom… Just ask Ryan and he will tell you I talked about it often! I have always enjoyed taking care of babies/kids and did a ton of babysitting throughout the years and I just knew one day I wanted to be a mama. What I did not know or couldn’t possibly fathom is how much I would love this precious little girl… I imagined what it would be like, but until she was born I had NO idea what it would feel like. She brings me so much joy… When I catch her gaze and she smiles at me, my heart melts!! It’s my favorite thing and I could just stare and smile with her forever. Continue reading “Becoming Mom”
Notre Dame – Paris France
Notre Dame is one of my favorite places in Paris. It is very touristy and that is a bit of a draw back in my opinion, but it is still a wonderful spot. If you took the mob of people away it would be the best! The cathedral is truly magical… The building is absolutely stunning. It is nestled on the eastern part of the Île de la Cité, which is one of the two islands that are on the in the Seine River. Continue reading “Notre Dame – Paris France – Paris in Photographs”

Paris in Photographs – A Picnic in the Park
One of my favorite things about Paris is how many incredible parks there are around every corner. I LOVE nature!! Being a Colorado girl has certainly spoiled me in this aspect. Having these small oasis’s of gigantic trees nestled within the winding streets of tall buildings makes this beautiful city all the more charming.
