Falling into place

Victory! Freia slept through the night the past two nights, which she had not done in almost two months….I feel like I am getting my brain back! Haha.

DIY Fall projects

Pictures are like great wine….

…the more time passes, the more priceless they become. My photographer friend Alicia (who also photographed our family picnic) snapped this picture of me and the bump when she visited us in California last April. Alicia tried to send me the picture before Freia was born, but her message landed straight in my spam folder [...]
