I’m a total Daddy’s girl. The other day, I sliced my hand with a clam knife and he insisted on going with me to get stitches. He is my FERA assistant and helps me fulfill and ship orders. He loves to hike with his friends and volunteer as a weed-picker at the arboretum. He loves to wash dishes and fold clean laundry. He’s my hero.

We got to spend a very special day celebrating his 65th birthday. It was unplanned cause we already had a big family/friends dinner the night before but I couldn’t just let his actual birthday night go to waste so we decided to hit up the mall. Just me, my dad, and Emma – a very rare trio outing since we’re always with the rest of the family. My pops loves ribs so I took him to wood ranch…plus they have an awesome kid’s menu:)It’s not often I see him and Emma interact without other people around and my heart melted as I saw such special yet simple moments created between grandfather and granddaughter. Love you pops!

    Let’s be real — we leave the mess on their faces because that is SO MUCH EASIER than the battle that ensues when we try to wipe it off. I think you’re crushing it both on the mom game side and the daughter game side!

    lol SO TRUE so REAL!!! Just checked out your blog..love that you’re active with your little one!!! <3

I met Nicole 3 years ago in yoga, when I was pregnant with Emma. Naturally, we talked about babies, yoga, and photography. Now, she’s expecting a beautiful baby and wanted to capture the moment at the same beach where her husband, Ralf, proposed. Welcome to motherhood, Nicole!
