Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!

Homemade Coconut Milk | In My Home

I know I said this would be shared Monday afternoon during my daughter’s naptime. But that naptime never came. Cause ya know, she’s 18 months and has so much to do and say and think that naps just aren’t necessary apparently. ;) But TODAY!
