I don't know if it's because I've been living back home for a few weeks now, or if it's the coffee dates I've been having, but I've realized that there's just something about those friend who "knew me when..."
She was a friend of a friend in college, and I hadn't really seen her since. But last May, when I had my workshop back in Central Illinois, Lindsay came...and I was reminded again how much I just really like her. She was expecting their daughter at the time, so when she emailed asking about doing a newborn session...I didn't hesitate!!
Last week, I got to spend the night with my stepmom and their dogs while my dad was on a trip. These boys are so funny and are known for only understanding Japanese. The couple times I've babysat them, I've found myself Googling Japanese words like, "Please eat!" (as they're so polite they won't eat 'til you give them permission) and "Move over" (as Randy loves to sit on my lap)...it's always quite the experience!! :)
I drive a lot. I mean, A LOT. You should hear my car...a mechanic would say it's a muffler problem, but I think it's Dezzie cursing me under her breath. And she's sounding like a mountain man who's had a few too many whiskeys. I think she caught wind that a 30 hr. drive is coming up, and has decided to go on strike. I'm annoyed with her. She's being a brat
Work lunch...sometimes being gluten free just doesn't make sense. 😉 @moulinbistro #foodstyling #foodphotography
They're so intimidating...😜
My heart is wherever these lil' munchkins are. 😍 @rebekahkfmn @heidirink , thanks for keeping them close with pictures and videos!!!! #nephews #niece
Yesterday, these two loves celebrated their 10 year anniversary. Their love is honest, beautiful, and to witness it is such an honor. Congratulations @jdstar + @jasminestar ...here's to many many more! 💕

He is who I look to before I jump. He is still the smartest, wisest, and most diligent man I know. Every year, he becomes more of a hero to me and getting to be his daughter makes me walk a little taller and love a little deeper. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Daddy. I love you. 🎂
Is there such a thing as food-soulmates? What would you call that...Foolmates? Well, if there was, I'd consider @jasminestar + @jdstar my match made in food heaven.
...missing my little 8 nieces + nephews soooo much, but it's just a couple weeks 'til I get to squeeeeeze all those little chubby cheeks!!! 👦🏼👧🏻👧🏻👦🏻👦🏻👦🏼👦🏻👶🏻 @heidirink @rebekahkfmn #tamiphoto
When lunch becomes practice. 🍅 #foodstyling #foodphotography
I'm pretty sure I heard them say, "We soooo don't know you...don't act like you know us." 😎 #housemates
It rained...and I didn't hate it. Not even a little. 😍
