CKP Family Photo Session {2013}

We were so fortunate to have the amazing, the lovely and the talented Corrie Kraft snap our family photos again this year. Well, ok, you all know I’m totally addicted to her photography.  I love getting my boys dressed up in color-coordinating “Joel” shirts and I love watching them turn into little camera hams.  I […]

Summer Lovin’ {2013}

Oh, HI! Hello, there!  It’s me again.  Been quite awhile, huh?  Sorry for the unexpected sabbatical.  Lots of things going on with summer in full swing and two very active little kiddos. Let me catch you up as best I can: To kick things off, probably on maybe the 2nd day of spring that was […]

Corrie Kraft Photography {Lifestyle Photographer}

I am beyond obsessed with Corrie Kraft and her photography style.  I long to be as talented as she is and practically stalk her blog to keep up with her cool new photos. We had the good fortune to have my whole family in town for a weekend just after Thanksgiving and before Christmas, thus […]

Weekend in Winter Park : A Photo Session

I love Colorado!  There is nothing (NOTHING) like a weekend drive up the mountain in the fall as the leaves are changing and the air is getting crisper and cooler.  Fall is coming!! We had the opportunity to spend the weekend in Winter Park with my in-laws recently and took in the beauty of Colorado’s […]

Ring Bear-er

I love getting the boys all dressed up for a special occasion.  Aiden had the honor of being the ring bearer for our friends Brandon & Alison’s wedding last month and gosh darn-it if he wasn’t the cutest ring bear-er I ever did see! My boys clean up pretty nice.  We got them hair cuts, […]

Camping at the Lake

We finally got to go camping this past weekend!  Finally able to put work on hold and bump fun & family to the top of our lists.  Finally able to get out of town and get some real fresh air. This annual camping trip is all about family.  The O’Brien family reunion @Alcova Lake to […]

Baby Shower Extravaganza

Y’all know that I love to throw over-the-top parties and showers.  It runs in my family.  Put Mom, my sister, and I in a room together planning for big brother Phanny & his wife Amanda’s baby shower and you would have to call it more of an extravaganza than just a shower. Add to that […]

Joel & The Gang

How did I get so lucky?  I just have to share this great picture of my brothers, my Joel and the twins. Although we’re missing a few key players, this is the best, eyes open, all smiling, no photo bombs picture of Joel & the Gang (like Kool & the Gang, get it? – I crack myself […]

Splish-Splash

There is nothing more perfect for a near 90° day than a kiddy pool. With a slide. And yes, that is a pile of dirt on my back patio.  Long story; let’s just save it for another post. Please pretend you never saw it. Our private pool’s slide is really an elephant who is spraying water […]

How to Eat a Watermelon

I love the produce isle in the summertime.  All the bright colors and aromas; I love to let the kids smell the ripe mangoes, peaches, nectarines, and berries as I throw them in the cart.  I love it even more when I get to pick out a fruit they’ve never tried before (especially when it’s […]
