Ready for more Spain?  Alrighty!  Well I have to back up a little.  Before we went to Cordoba, we did stay one night in Madrid.  I skipped over it before because I really don’t have that many photos from there.  It wasn’t my favorite city by any means.  Just big and crowded.  So here’s what […]

Granada… and a little bit of Madrid

Remember Griselda & Humberto’s Olvera Street engagement shoot?  Well a big congratulations to them!  The September issue of Latina Magazine came out this week and Griselda & Humberto’s mugs (and feet) are in there!  It’s an article about using cultural elements in party planning, which is something Griselda is a pro at!  Woo hoo!  Congratulations […]

Over the past year I’ve seen these vintage subway sign replicas all over the internet.  Now I know by this point they’re super trendy, but I’ve never claimed to be a trend setter.  I’m usually a little late to the game actually.  But none the less, I wanted to make one of these.  So I […]

I don’t actually like s’mores all that much.  I really like the idea of them and making them, but I can’t say I really enjoy eating them all that much. Especially compared to the stick biscuit. When I was a kid, my family and I learned how to make these delicious campfire treats from our […]

S’mores… the inferior fireside treat

It’s no secret that I love my home.  But, one of my favorite spaces in the house is my bedroom. I often find it hard to get out of bed.  Sometimes because I’m tired, but mostly because I just love being in that space.  I love the way the light gently pours through the curtains […]

I love to make things feel special.  Magical even.  And I LOVE being able to use things I already have to do that. So the other night, when I had my neighbors over for a barbecue, I couldn’t wait to put together something cute for the table.  Side note… we had the best burgers I’ve […]

Everyone needs a little magic!

It’s time to get back to Spain!  Well.. not literally… although, that sounds great right now, doesn’t it? We left off in the cute little Medieval town of Segovia.  Next we headed to Granada, but on our way, we stopped through Cordoba for the day. I just loved this little church we stumbled upon. One […]

Spain continued- Cordoba

The second stop on our adventure was Segovia. There’s something I really liked about this little medieval town. I tend to be partial to smaller towns anyway and this one definitely had that small town feel. I kept expecting people to jump out and start singing like in Beauty and the Beast. One of the […]

This morning I heard this song on Pandora.  I forgot how much I love Nicole Nordeman.  It gave me chills, almost brought me to tears, and made praise rise within me this morning. Praise God for making all things new.

It’s been crazy busy around here!  I have done several weddings and other portrait shoots and have needed to get those posted here.  Plus, I’ve just had some thoughts about things I’ve been learning that I want to share.  And people keep asking when they get to see photos from Spain.   I posted a […]
