Take Stunning Bluebonnet Photos With These 10 Tips

Did you know there’s a special day dedicated to celebrating the wildflowers of Texas? No? Well surprise, today’s that day! April 24 is Texas State Wildflower Day, and no wildflower is more recognized in the Lone Star State than its very own flower, the bluebonnet.

Sunday Snapshot: Parisian Vibes

We celebrated my son’s second birthday last weekend with a Paris-themed party, complete with Eiffel Tower-shaped cookies and plenty of the delicious food and pastries France is known for. This little guy is obsessed with the Eiffel Tower! Or the “idol” as he adorably calls it. :) C had so much fun at his party, and I’m so… Read More


How to Take Your Child’s Passport Photo

Traveling abroad is expensive (though certainly worth it—even with kids in tow!), so cutting down on travel costs where you can is a must. While you can’t save money on those pricey passport application fees, you can save money by taking your own passport photos. The cost of having a passport photo taken at a drugstore… Read More


Sunday Snapshot: A Hug for Winnie the Pooh

Sunday Snapshot: Perfectly Fall

We broke out the long sleeves and pants today for the first time this season. Hooray! I woke up freezing this morning and felt so excited about it that I switched from the A/C to the heater and then spent part of the morning packing away into bins most of C’s summer clothes that I know… Read More


Sunday Snapshot: Baby’s First Haircut

This “baby’s first” was really hard for me. I absolutely was not ready for it. This is one of those times when I think it would be easier to have a little girl because you don’t have to worry about a first haircut for years, and by then it’s probably easier to deal with. But… Read More



Sunday Snapshot: It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

In actuality, this Sunday Snapshot isn’t the greatest image. It’s not even close to being sharp, it’s not exposed correctly, it’s a little grainy. It’s one I would delete from my camera along with other blurry and out-of-focus photos had it been of anything else. But I adore it so much that here it is,… Read More
