May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam. And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you’re far from home. And may you grow to be proud, dignified and true. And do unto others as you’d have done to you. Be courageous and be brave. And in my heart you’ll always stay Forever young

Galavanted through downtown Seal Beach with these honeys.  Shot their wedding over two years ago, and now they’re back and still all sorts of merrymaking, this time with their dog-child Lucy. God bless ‘em. Meet Val & Zach // A California Christmas    

Lifestyle: Kaden & Deb

D&Klove-101

Deb fell in love with baby Kaden when he still lived in Russia. If you met him, you would know how and why. He’s brimming with tenderness and teaming with true joy. After all the hellish hullabaloo of adopting this precious son, she brought him home to the states and has daily poured out her lifeblood for his goodness. She is his mama, and she is good at being his mama. Now she’s raising him on her own in Southern California, because Deb is brave and knows a love that... Read The Rest →

 Happy Monday-ing to you professional weekenders. Hopefully you’ve got a cup of something hot caffeinating your system. Something real babe-ish to share this morning. I want you to meet my people: Jay, CoCo, Emma, and Crew Ohkkk kaaayyy you guys. The Vees are some of our family’s very dearest friends. To me they feel like the human manifestation of Christmas morning: glittery and cozy and sacred to share space with. They feel like a million years of friendship and the kind of kindredness you only pray your kids find one day.... Read The Rest →

Lifestyle: The Baldwins

DarlingBaldwins-172

They’ve got the whole world in their hands. God’s love for them exploding in colors and experiences and dreamt about firsts. Amidst all the distractions competing for their eyes, glory is the backdrop of their every day. The need for the Lord’s presence stronger than ever, the desire for his presence now stronger than the need. Ritualistic prayers, no time for one– but prayers have turned into heart songs. Thankfulness and hope and even cries for help. Navigating a sea of the beautiful, terrifying unknown. To lull her perfection to... Read The Rest →

Lucky me. Lucky, lucky me. We spent the early evening mobbing ivy alley ways and queuing spontaneous dance parties on bus stop benches. We pretended we’ve known each other for a coon’s age, because nothing else felt as true. She took the town and painted it red, sprinting across intersections with the giddiest smile and glowiest eyes. She’s a little starlet, a magnet bright with kindness and true humility. Put it like this: I like her a lot. I’m sure her steps follow the prayers long lifted up for her... Read The Rest →

Because despite her best efforts, they still seem to be growing faster than eyes know how to count or measure. Because they somehow seem to continually outgrow everything except her love. And because Calif0rnia is their place. And so a tribute: A tribute to the unwavering affection, joy, and wisdom given over by the good company of her babies. And so an ode: An ode to how she teaches them to live well, and love hard. And so a memoir: A memoir of the most heroic thing she’s ever done.... Read The Rest →
