{Recipe Testing} Minimalist Baker Easy Vegan Ramen

I don't know I'd necessarily call this recipe "easy" but it was tasty and a great outcome for my first time making ramen.
I followed her recipe pretty closely but didn't have the dried mushrooms so I used some canned mushrooms instead.  The time intensive part of this recipe involved making the miso glazed carrots and baby bok choy and then pan frying the tofu.  Those were the optional toppings but really added to the soup, otherwise it would have just been broth, a few veggies and noodles.  I like my ramen more as a meal than a starter and with the toppings, this one is filling and satisfying.
If you love ramen, I'd give this one a go, just allow some time for cooking up the toppings.  Slurp away!

{Photography} My First Maternity Shoot

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot my first maternity session.  
It all came together rather quickly and at the last minute.
I was chatting with the mom to be's mom at a party and I gave her my number.
The couple couldn't have been sweeter.
They were so excited about being first time parents..
and so so sweet with each other.
They seemed to be naturals in front of the camera.
We brainstormed a little before the session about props and they brought some great ones.
But the two of them really didn't need props to show their amazing connection.
This little baby is so loved already.
I can't wait for the call to come photograph their newborn!

Spring Break & Flowers in The Garden

We stayed home over Miss High School's spring break because she had rehearsals and work but we still managed to work in some fun during the busy week.
 We went to Trader Joe's and I sent this pic to Mr. Click of the reds I had picked out for us.
 We went to yoga and then to a favorite smoothie place.
 Their oatmeal was really good too!
 I took her to my new favorite walking trail...
 ...and stopped for a selfie.
 We had brunch at another favorite spot. I'm obsessed with the curried lentil burrito! She likes the avocado toast.
We were invited to a party at our neighbors' to celebrate a new US citizen. This cake was amazing with its Ecuadorian flag.
Signs that Miss New York was home visiting us as well.
Finally seeing flowers in the garden (and weeds of course!)
Swooning over my lilacs like I do every year!  Our second round of lilacs are blooming now and it smells so good inside and outside of the house!

{Wordless Wednesday} Naughty Squirrels

Look what those naughty squirrels did to our deck furniture cushions! Luckily we caught on to their shenanigans to save most of the seat cushions (we only lost one). The rest were throw pillows! All of my mother in law's hard work!
