    Becoming Miss Holmes | Short Film Behind the Scenes

    Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to share these two videos with you, and to incorporate my YouTube videos into my posts more often! Today, of course, I’m sharing the behind-the-scenes of filming our short, Miss Holmes, and the teaser! I’m SO excited about this project. Filmmaking is something I love, but it’s my husband’s passion especially and we both kind of hope to use Miss Holmes to help push him into his desired career field. We are putting everything we have into this little film! I hope you enjoy the teaser and behind-the-scenes! I will of course have a few more BTS videos before we finally premier the film.

    Bird Watcher

    curating a breastfeeding-friendly wardrobe ¬†Though I took a break from regular posting on social media, my time on “break” was actually spent quite productively creating, and it was the best break I’ve had in quite a long while. Lately I had been feeling like I only ever got dressed for social media. For a blog post, a video, an Instagram post, what have you. I put on clothes because… I had to. So, I decided to utilize my little social media break to fall in love with clothes again. Having three babies has changed my body quite a lot — from the shape to pounds gained to silhouettes I like…

At the time I’ve started writing this I’ve only been on my little social media break for two days (at the time of posting, it’s been a week). And I already¬† miss posting. I have mentioned before here that I often stop and evaluate my presence and purpose on social media and how it affects my own life and the life of my family. When I…

    Poinsettias for Christmas || Feat Dolly and Dotty and The Retro Flamingo

    A little while ago, The Retro Flamingo flower crowns contacted me to ask if she could send me crowns for myself and my daughters. She was then kind enough to also include lapel pins for my husband and Asa. It was the perfect little push to get new family photos with Irene, who is now old enough to actually interact with the camera. Our last photos were only this summer, but she was so little it was a bit difficult to get clear pictures of her face! And, since they’re Poinsettia flowers, our family photos are perfectly Christmassy for (my always late) holiday cards!

    The Elephant in the Room

    how to style colorful tights This weekend is Nehemiah’s and my sixth wedding anniversary! Since it has been a secret, as I planned where we are going and he has no idea, I have to admit I haven’t really given much thought to a detailed itinerary of what we will do during this weekend. I have a vague overview of the points I’d like to hit while we’re gone, but I haven’t planned outfits, nor figured out a day-by-day plan to see everything I want to see while we are there. But today and tomorrow will be packing-and-planning for the weekend, and hopefully I don’t forget anything! It’s kind of…
