One of my favorite things right now is how my little one gives tight hugs to everyone she loves.

Best Face of 2014

The January challenge at I Heart Faces is “Best Face of 2014.” This picture right here is my favorite face picture of 2014 for so many reasons. The number one reason is, of course, just how very much I love this particular face. I cannot get enough of her. Just cannot.



Check out the rest of the amazing faces here:


She’s 1!

One of the best things about living back in the US is being around for family events. Last week, we got to celebrate our niece’s first birthday. Isn’t she the cutest?


In the Distance

As our life begins to settle, I’m finally finding more time to spend with my camera. Yay! This means I can start doing some of my favorite things again, like participating in the I Heart Faces monthly challenges. This month’s challenge is “In the Distance.” This photo is actually from a few months ago when my parents visited, but it’s one of my favorites because it has my three favorite people in it.

Miss MelMac

Last week I had a wonderful visit from my dear friend, Melissa. She was in town for a work trip, but was kind enough to make some time to hang out with Matt and me. Melissa was in need of some new head shots for her business, so in between chatting about life and trying to save the world, we headed out for a photo shoot. She is a beauty inside and out, this one.

Melissa is a wildly talented children’s ministry consultant. If you are involved in children’s ministry, I highly recommend getting to know her. You can read about what she does on her website, Facebook, and Twitter.


It was super fun to be home for Easter this year. Dying Easter eggs is way more fun with a toddler.


Mom & Dad Visit

A few weeks ago, my parents came up for a visit. We went to the butterfly preserve and spent some time walking on the beach. It’s so nice to be living close enough to be able to visit without travelling for 24 hours.
