My New Love For Nuuly

Late last year, I was served another ad for another business on instagram. But this time, I was totally drawn in. I was curious and excited to learn more. One of my goals for the new year was to slow down on my buying habits for clothing and figure out a solution that would get me new items and also producing less by buying less. I was skeptical of a clothing subscription, because I honestly couldn’t find one where I felt the options were of clothes I would actually buy and wear. Thanks to Nuuly, my eyes have been opened!

Garden Plans and Goals

Garden Plans from Tremaine Ranch in Arizona

We’ve got a lot of dreams for the ranch. We’ve wanted to get more chickens and create a small egg empire (haha not really but kind of). We want to create a functional garden with raised beds, filled with greens, vegetables and flowers. We’ve got ideas of what we want our lifestyle to be like, and will slowly be adding more and more of that this year. We want Max to be raised with a similar work ethic, and know the importance of chores around your home. Gardening will be fun, taking care of our animals teaches compassion and being able to be outside more is definitely something we are working on.

Bringing Maxwell Home

I can’t believe how fast time has been going. It feels like just yesterday we were bringing our little baby boy home. Now, he is almost three months and time just needs to slow down before. The emotional whirlwind of parenthood is unlike anything I have ever experience. I know its nothing new, but wow, everything they say is completely accurate. Today, I wanted to share a look back at the day after we brought our boy home.

Maxwell’s Birth Story

Sitting down to write out Maxwell’s birth story has been something I knew that I wanted to do before more time has gone by. I knew that I wanted to write everything that I can remember (and what Matt took down in his notebook) down somewhere. We kept our pregnancy so private so figuring out what, if anything, about Max we wanted to share online. But looking back on my own memories and photographs, and how I wish I had written more down, I think that sharing here our family updates makes the most sense. We’ve loved being able to share personal stories, photographs and work growth here. But the goal with keeping up our blog is for us to see our growth as people, as a family, and see how we evolve as business owners. Knowing that one day Max will read these things – whether we keep pubic forever or make private – is so special. That is why we’ve decided to share Maxwell’s birth story here. This post is extremely vulnerable but I absolutely adore the photographs, the emotions captured and every little thing in between.

Maternity Photographs with Daniel Kim

It seems a little wild sharing our maternity photographs after the fact that our sweet baby boy, Max, is now born. He turned our world around by making our little family or two into three and keeping us on our toes during our busy season. But, when you get photographs taken by one the photographers you’ve admired in your industry you have to share the magic.

So My Dad Has Cancer

It took me months to figure out if this was a blog post I wanted to share, or if I wanted to share anything on this at all. But, I figured today was just as good as any other to share that my dad has cancer. It’s been quite the journey so far starting at the end of 2017. My dad was dealing with horrible pains, that had doctors initially diagnose him with a hernia. After multiple doctor visits, tests, and even my own mother doing her own research, it turns out it wasn’t just a hernia. As of November 2018, my dad was diagnosed with severe (& supposedly a rare form of) prostate cancer. Today, both Matt and I really wanted to share some personal thoughts and requests from our hearts.
