HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!! It has been far too long. I have been knee-deep in work. It's funny: I left my full-time job so that I could devote more time to Ximena. But now that I am "working from home" I have felt overwhelmed more times than not. 

Unfortunately, that means that some projects have got to give (read: this blog sometimes). I am trying to balance being patient and gentle with myself, being PRESENT for Ximena (she HATES it when I am on my phone and not paying attention to her), and all the excitement I have about writing and telling my stories. But it's hard, friends. I'm still learning how to do it "all." 

That said, I wanted to share these beautiful photos that my dear friend Nathan shot. I'll admit I am much more comfortable behind the lens, but these were such a sweet surprise. I am really happy with how they turned out. Isn't he so talented!?

You can check out more of his work on Instagram, or reach out here, if you'd like.

It feels good to be back, friends. I look forward to catching up :)
