carry on

Hooray my cousin Jeff is home! He was serving in the Calgary, Canada Spanish speaking mission. We are so glad to see that is home safe and sound!

I am in love with this picture that Marianne took at the Sacramento airport, it reminds me of that Shel Silverstein drawing of the garbage that Sara Cynthia Silvia Stout would not take out.

nine months

Our little one is nine months old! I can't believe he has been out as long as he was in. He has gone from adorable little blinking bundle to waving, crawling, standing, eating cheerios by himself, destroying (which started around 8 months and lasts till he is what, 25?) and has three teeth and continues to be the most joyous and incredible child ever. Just our humble and unbiased opinion of course, he is truly the best in the world!

Nie Nie & Alice Lane Home


Oh how I love Alice Lane Home, so imagine my sheer delight when I got to photograph a room designed by them for Stephanie Nielson of the Nie Nie Dialogs. Does it get much better than that? I think not. 

Suzanne Hall is one of Alice Lanes head designers and she happens to be one of my dear friends. Suzanne is so gifted as a designer, (how great is her drawing of Nie nie's basement, pictured above) her heart and soul comes though in every thing she designs! She is an absolute joy to be around and it was so great to get to work with her. The ladies at Alice Lane Home are marvelous! And have you been inside their store? Magical. Jessica has put together a very talented team. I cannot wait to have them design my home someday (in the far, seemingly endless distant future. *sigh*)

If you are in the market for home design Alice Lane is the place and Suzanne Hall is your girl! And if you need your new home photographed for posterity and the whole of the internet contact me @ for pricing.
