First lunch on our new patio set! So excited to eat on our balcony all summer long.

God has been hearing my prayers. Grateful doesn't even come close. #babysfirstthanksgiving
Happy thanksgiving!! Hope you're spending time with family or friends today and feeling blessed. We're headed to mom's house for a potluck dinner in a bit.

Throwback to last year's holiday shoot for @moment.
Took my first solo trip with Lev to spend some time with family in Idaho. I decided I couldn't wait until Christmas. My 4-year-old niece gave up her room for us, and Lev and I got to share a bed for the first time.

My sister @chaff_and_grain has the cutest stuff for her kids, like this lion pillow that I really wanted to sneak home with us!

I didn't know Friendsgiving was a thing until only a few years ago. I feel like I missed out on so many years of a really good holiday!! 🦃 I wrote a story for @moment with easy tips on hosting Friendsgiving. I was able to fit in the grocery shopping, cooking, decor, setup, and the actual dinner all in one day. 😅 Not recommended, but possible if you keep it simple like I did. Link in my profile and story to read my hosting tips. Anyone hosting Friendsgiving at their house this year?

Today is my best friend/baby daddy/biggest crush's birthday. I love him so! We both do, Lev and I! Last week he left for a few days for the first time, and we sure missed him. I felt lonely, even though I was with Lev, whereas not that long ago, I would have been totally fine home alone. 🙃 We need him and love him more than ever. And he's been there for us. 😚

Today we got to take Lev on his first ferry ride... it was a super windy and stormy day, but these guys were perfectly calm and happy watching the crazy waves together. 🌊

When you invite yourself over to your friend/neighbor's house and she somehow has a pot of soup cooking on the stove and delicious pumpkin loaf to share. #goodtiming #donttellmewhereyoulive #imightshowup

Snuck out of the house for a few minutes to go play in the leaves with these kids (yes, both of them). And because I couldn't narrow them down, swipe to see my favorite handful. 😍 #myphoneisnowoutofspace

We walked into an LA shop yesterday and the sales associate asked "you guys enjoying the fall weather?" 😄 Apparently it was the first cloudy and sliiiightly chilly day in a long time and that was something to be excited about. #nope #notenjoyingit #fromseattle #madehimlaugh
Happy hour after shop hopping in LA yesterday. Lev was turning heads all over the place. ☺️ We've been here so many times but it all somehow feels new with him. We definitely did as little driving as possible this trip. 😄 #doesntlikethecarseat
Wandered into a Venice shop called @latesundayafternoon. Tried on a necktie I was drawn to and met the guy who makes them/owns the shop. We browsed around for a while (and took family mirror selfies in the courtyard) and before we left, he gifted me a necktie, saying it was a gift for having a baby!!! Nicest guy and neat little shop, beautifully curated and built by the same guy (isn't that wall texture amazing? He did that too.). Thanks for making my day, Matthew. If you're in Venice, stop by to browse the neckties, jewelry, and awesome selection of children's books.

While shooting family photos in an area we've never been before, a local at the park told us to hit this spot nearby on our way back. So we did, and he was right about the view. Thanks, dude!

Our little ray of sunshine in the morning is 3 months old! He also set a new sleep record (7 hours) while sleeping on a hotel couch (normally no where near that long)! Hopefully he brings his new skills home with us.

Babe slept through his first beach visit (well, first in SoCal... somehow WA doesn't count). I enjoyed my iced coffee and toes in the sand for him though. We keep thinking maybe we should do some research and go do some sightseeing, but so far, food and walks and the beach has kept us pretty happy.

Vacation babe! I have a summer baby but this is the most sun he's experienced since he was so tiny and new and mostly cooped up at home during our summer. I'm sure going to miss seeing those bare legs and toes.

Recently realized I haven't ever left Lev for anything other than going to work or a shoot a handful of times and he'll be 3 months in a few days. So I went to the grocery store solo (two of them, actually), and took my sweet time, and it was awesome. Even got to enjoy some pumpkins by the front door. One thing is for sure... being a new mom sure makes you appreciate the small things! #lookimatapumpkinpatch #jk #justthegrocerystore #alone #instagramclassic

It's the perfect sweater weather in Seattle... and/or rain suit, depending on what day you go out. I am still craving a crispy leaf walk but I seem to get out on the soggy days.

Sleepovers every night with this little cutie. It's hard to imagine him ever moving out of our room! #hoveringmom

Love our bedside sleeper by @babybayusa that makes middle of the night feeds (and mid-day staring contests) much easier. #babybay

Snuck away from work to see what @yuriymanchik was up to in his studio (his space is down the hall from @moment where I work). Also to see how neglected my poor fiddle leaf fig has been. 😒 ⠀
