If you were wondering where we disappeared to for, now you know. We were in Iceland! We went with two of our good friends, Joelle & Pearce, and left the little one at home with the grandmothers… it was amazing to travel like adults, not having to deal with a baby screaming in a restaurant (though Pearce did act up on occasion). It was 5 busy and incredibly exciting days.
None of these photos had any phtoshop to them, except to convert into jpg.
The gang, after we walked behind that waterfall:
A few weeks ago, Jesse and I were hunting through our photos, looking for a pic of my stepfather looking straight at us (what?! Everyone doesn’t phtooshop their father’s face onto a still shot of the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials for his birthday?!) and I realized there was a pattern to photos of Jesse and Autumn: He is usually throwing her about. This kid loves to be manhandled, and I have officially blamed it on Jesse.
If you’re a regular follower, or saw my note on facebook, you’ll know that I screwed up the blog for a day and it reverted to our website from a couple years ago. No big deal, except there was a note on the blog saying I was on maternity leave (which I am not. My little babes is a year and a half old!) There was a sweet little photo of her at a few days old… and here she is now, getting into trouble under the kitchen table:
PS You should totally follow us on Facebook and Pinterest. (Especially Pinterest if you want to see recipes for anything with salted caramel and/or how to organize your home… which I will continue to pin but never do.)
To Jesse and me… 7 awesome years.
Every year I re-read the Pablo Neruda sonnet read at our wedding, and every year it means more.
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
You all know that I’m a self-professed nut about canvas. It’s sort of an obsession; I can’t help but order more and more. Well, I love when I convert someone else…
I recently sent a canvas to Alison & Lon… and these were the kind words I received shortly after from Alison:
“OMG its beauuutifulllll!!! I LOVE the colors ..and that happy husband of mine:) thank u sooo much, it really makes me happy just looking at it!!”
Sometimes it’s hard to pick what to hang on your walls after the wedding; life comes crashing back in so fast after the honeymoon. I’m so happy that this is a daily reminder to A&L of how awesome their wedding day was, and how happy they were (and are!)
Check out the new work I recently added!
It’s my amazing husband’s first father’s day. Jesse, here’s to the bad and the good: all the nights you stayed up because she hates sleep, to all the times she puked on you the second you touched her, to when she bit you on Wednesday, and to the circus tricks, the laughter, the way she smiles when you pick her up in the morning, and to yesterday, when you called me and said, “we concluded the night by rolling around on the floor giggling.” I am so thankful for you, and I look forward to watching you two have inside joke for the rest of our lives.
