Petting Zoo + Firetrucks

We are very fortunate to live in a community with a small town feel and big city amenities, including family-friendly activities at the public library. In addition to their summer reading program, Joshua Public Library hosts special events like today's petting zoo. Kamden and I went this morning anticipating story time and seeing a few animals, but [...]

So this happened last night …

Kamden had his first public performance last night at the annual J.U.M.P.S. Christmas program. He and his classmates have been practicing "Jingle Bells" since early October. All week he has been shaking his fists up and down whenever he's hear a song on the radio or TV. I finally realized he's been rehearsing songs every day at [...]

Portraits in the Patch // 2015

The weather is FINALLY beginning to cool off here in North Texas and that makes my Kentucky heart skip a beat. One of my favorite things about fall is actually the anticipation of Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas - but I'll be sharing more on those in future posts. Today, I want to share some of the photos I took [...]

Bluebonnets

I've lived in Texas almost 12 years and I finally experienced the Bluebonnet Festival in Ennis! The trip almost didn't happen between schedule conflicts and unpredictable weather on top of my seasonal allergies really bothering me. But, under clear skies, and the influence of Zyrtec, I had a really great time with Kamden and our 'Z' friends. We [...]

Baby Dinosaur Goes Outside

Kamden has this hoodie jacket that a friend's daughter "bedazzled" by sewing dinosaur spikes on top. It's the cutest thing ever and I never imagined Kamden would wear the size 2T jacket before he was a year old, but he's the Mini Man Child and he likes exceeding expectations. The jacket also gives him super [...]

KAMDEN // the first year in pictures

Last night, I put Kamden to bed as an 11-month-old infant. Today, he woke up a year old toddler. His birthday marks a significant milestone for us as a family of three and we celebrate a major accomplishment for breastfeeding exclusively for a year as well. We have a lot to celebrate, and we will through the weekend, [...]

Three 31 Photography // Barbie (#RegisteredNurse)

Have you ever received a phone call that made you smile and brightened your entire day? Last week, while walking grocery shopping, my cell phone rang. I didn't recognize the number but I answered it anyway, and heard the most pleasant voice on the other end. It was Barbie, one of Husband's cousins, and she needed portraits for [...]
