I am lucky to have found an amazing group of women and mothers here in Southern California that I consider not only friends, but a collective team of creativeness that can make magic happen when we all put our heads together. The above shoot was one such experience. We teamed up with Free People to create a Mother’s Day Inspiration shoot for the Free People blog. We got to work with camels and wild zebras and it is an experience that I will truly never forget.

These were taken on that very first day of daylight savings where we used that extra hour of sunlight to explore one of the missions in San Diego. It’s funny how that extra bit of sunlight in the evening time can completely change my mood. Turning that clock back means so much – longer and longer stretches of sunlight in the evenings, warmer weather, and more post-nap adventures…summer can never come soon enough.
I shared one of these photos on Instagram last week and loved it so much I wanted to add it here as well (even if each kid is making a silly face in either photo). These were taken on an afternoon where we were lucky enough to babysit my niece and I was able to experience life as a mom to two…except that my niece is the easiest baby ever, so she pretty much induced full-on baby fever into our little family of three, particularly into Holden who seems to be completely smitten with babies at the moment. It is so amazing to watch Holden interact with his little cousin – fawning over her, tickling her toes, kissing her cheeks, and playing ever so gently with her. His sweet demeanor never ceases to amaze me. After a peaceful, playful,and joy-filled afternoon playing mama to two, I’m starting to think I could get used to this
Holden and baby Kenley are both wearing pieces by the gorgeous children’s accessory shop, Henny & Coco. Holden wears the Black Beaded Toddler Tassel Necklace and baby Kenley wears the Teal Leather Hair Bow.

Warm nights, starry skies, sand, and sun, and surf….it’s starting to feel like summer already here in Southern California.
I came across this image today and can’t quite get this ensemble out of my head. Thinking that the cropped blazer-lace top-full skirt-white pump combo will be a wardrobe staple this spring….simple, stylish, classic.
