The setting for our story.

I love San Diego. More than ever, I am so grateful to call this city home. This year, Matt and I marked our ten year anniversary of living on the property we live on in South Park.

One of the beautiful things about living here is that beach days can happen year round, and this year we have tried to get to the beach as much as possible. 

It seemed like every day this summer, we were like, hmmm… what should we do today? Head to the beach again? Sounds good!

Every day, we came home filthy, exhausted, and content.

This is the backdrop to my kids' childhood. With my current job description being: "create a beautiful childhood for your kids," I'm grateful that this city is the setting for our story.

Mammoth: Better late than never?

It only took me three months to go through these vacation photos. Is it better late than never, or maybe it is too late to share? We spent about two weeks in Mammoth this summer. We were joined by friends and family. It was the best of times (for our kids); it was the worst of times (for me on a personal level with my struggle with postpartum depression). But it happened. Throughout the trip and looking back upon it, I am grateful for the moments I stepped back to capture through my camera lens. It provided both a literal and metaphorical lens through which to seek and and focus on the joy.
