    How to Cope With Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss

    October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, and the sad truth is, 1 in 4 women will suffer a miscarriage, still birth or infant loss at some point in their lives. If you are the 1 in 4, I am so very sorry for you loss and I hope you know, even though you may feel it, you are not alone in your pain, your grief or your experience. I too am one of those statistics. On Good Friday of this year, I was in need of a resurrection as I had miscarried our very first baby.   My Story I had woken up that morning at 6 am to heavy…

    Moorten Botanical Garden x LuLu’s

    Hey hey beauties. You’re looking so sharp today. I’ll never desert you….these are things I whisper to my cacti plants. Will and I traveled to Palm Springs after our trip to Salvation Mountain and we made a stop at Moorten Botanical Garden. I would like to admit that we are actually really into plants. It is actually one of our favorite past times on the weekends to visit a local nursery and adopt a new plant. We love finding new additions to add to our house as we create our little jungalow together. There’s something just so beautiful about the life and personality each plant brings to the home. We…

    Lovestitch

    We stumbled across the Salton Sea after our Salvation Mountain adventure. To our surprise, it was highly polluted and abandoned, except for the overgrown palm trees cascading the skyline. The light was so beautiful, between the setting sun and the rising moon, we couldn’t resist pulling over for a quick detour on our way to Palm Springs. I had packed this “Celine Dress” from Lovestitch Clothing. I love the effortlessly lightweight tencel fabric, as it feels cool even when it’s hot.  It’s not a maternity dress but it seems to fit me and my bump perfectly, so yay for that! I love not having to buy maternity clothes in hopes that…

    Salvation Mountain Maternity Shoot

    I have been wanting to visit Salvation Mountain in Niland, California for literally ten years, and we finally made the trip! When I found out I was pregnant, I knew we needed to capture some maternity pictures there and I’m so glad we did! I know I will treasure these pictures of me and baby girl for years to come, and I hope to print one and hang in her nursery. 🙂 To be honest, it was ridiculously hot here, and being pregnant only made the temperature that more uncomfortable! The 105 degree heat and piercing desert sun made it hard to really enjoy exploring this fascinating place, but we…

    Our Santa Barbara Elopement Pictures

    I am so excited to share with you our Santa Barbara elopement pictures we took with the incredibly talented Rich of Chard Photo! He was so amazing and fun to work with, and made the entire experience memorable. We ended up meeting Rich in Los Olivos, California, which by the way, is the cutest little wine town. We need to go back! Rich took us through the gorgeous rolling fields of gold, and we found a spot near Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch to take these elopement pictures. The light and the colors were so gorgeous, and these photos definitely do the landscape justice. We then hopped in the car and…

    My K-Beauty Inspired Natural Skin Care Routine

    Today I am sharing my natural skin care K-Beauty inspired routine and the organic products I use and love for fine lines and wrinkles, hydration and radiance. Our skin is the largest organ of our body. It is living and breathing, and although not a sponge, what we apply externally to our dermis, has the potential to become absorbed internally. Many of the products we use day to day, unknowingly contain toxic chemicals that can disrupt hormone function, affect our immune and reproductive systems, and even cause cancer. Which is why it is important to always read labels, know which ingredients to avoid, and stick to plant and fruit based, natural skin…

    Dear Baby Girl

    To our baby girl, You are finally here. I’ve felt your spirit strongly so many times. I’ve seen you in my dreams, running around in a diaper with soft curls of golden blonde hair, underneath trees of giant peonies. Every time I think of you, my heart feels full and I could cry, knowing one day soon, you will be mine. You will be ours. I finally found the father you deserve. He is good and he is so kind. I promise he will love you and take care of you, better than anyone I’ll ever know, because that’s how he takes care of me. You are so so lucky…

    Our California Elopement!

    Will made me the happiest girl on July 20th, when we exchanged vows and said I do under the Californian sun! We eloped, just the two of us, to Santa Barbara, and it was absolutely perfect. Neither one of us wanted to fuss with a wedding or deal with the stress, planning, or expenses…that come along with it! We were simply excited to join our lives together and lay the foundation for our future and for our family. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps…

    The Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona

    The Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa, nestled along the banks of Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona, Arizona, is a beautiful destination for a relaxing get-a-way. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly and accommodating staff. The overall vibe of the resort is very relaxed, modern and inviting. There is complimentary wine at happy hour, court yard lawn games, bikes to ride, an infinity edge pool, and sunsets that light up the red rocks. Our room was modern and bright, and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. It was so welcoming to receive a tray of fresh fruit, macaroons, and a bottle of  wine from the management…
