{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!

May's Daily Goodie Box

I look forward to these Daily Goodie Boxes every month now because they are so fun to open and to discover new products!
 Let's see what we got this month! 
So much goodness!

Kicking Horse Coffee -  Kick A*s Ground Dark Coffee
This irreverently named coffee wasn't new to us and we were already big fans! The dark blend's aroma is smoky, sweet vanilla and dark chocolate.  The tasting notes are chocolate malt, molasses and licorice. Yum! This bold coffee is perfect for an early morning wake up!

Georgia Grinders - Creamy Peanut Butter

Who doesn't love a squeezy pouch smooth and creamy peanut butter?   Georgia Grinders sets their products apart by using all natural, non GMO ingredients and they don't add any sugars, oils or emulsifiers.  The slow roasting is evident in this tasty spread.  I can't wait to try some more of their nut butters.

ONA Treats - ONA Honey Nut Bar

This ONA bar is soft and chewy and full of organic nuts, seeds, honey and coconut oil.  It's sweetened only with organic honey and is dairy free, grain free and soy free.  It's certified gluten free and paleo friendly.

Prince of Peace - 100% Natural Ginger Candy

Here's a sweet, 15 calorie,  treat we can all indulge in. Ginger is known for calming the stomach so I like to keep some ginger candies in my car and purse. I love that this brand is 100% natural.  The sweet ginger taste is warming to the senses..they've got a kick to them!

Volo Vitamins - Energy Stick Packs

Want an extra burst of energy when you work out or just trying to get through a busy day?  These little energy stick packs contain a proprietary blend of vitamins, minerals and seventeen different fruits with added natural boosters including a full complement of B vitamins and essential amino acids.  Just mix with water for a fizzy pick me up.

GO Viter - Viter Energy Caffeine Mints

With over 750 Amazon Reviews, it's safe to say that people love these mints that give you a kick of caffeine and fresh breath. Each mint contains 40mg of caffeine, the equivalent of a half a cup of coffee or half of an energy drink so you can regulate how much caffeine you want.  

Swago -  Cologne Wipes for Men

Swago, is a one time cologne applicator for the man on the move.  The wipes are portable and inexpensive. From their website: 1) Pick your scent 2) Open package and take out scented wipe 3)Wipe on swag zones 4)Smell good to go!

Tiger Balm - Pain Relieving Patch

This is the kind of product that you hope you don't need but you're so happy to have it if you do! Combining Tiger Balms herbal ingredients with the cleanliness of a patch, it provides strong and convenient pain relief for hours with minimal odor.  Use these patches for temporary relief of muscle and joint aches.

Natralia - Eczema Body Wash & Shampoo

This "happy little bodies" product is a soap free, non-irritating alternative to traditional harsh shampoos and soaps.  It's a 2-in-1 body wash and shampoo which is always a plus and it's sting free and pH balanced for babies and children.

Andalou Naturals - Beauty is Uplifting Face Cream Pod

I was lucky enough to try one of Andaolou Naturals treatment facial masks recently (Christmas gift from Miss High School) and I was really impressed.  The face cream pod is equally impressive with its fruit stem cell complex, resveratrol CoQ10, DMAE and hyaluronic acid.  What does all this mean to you? A firmer, more lifted youthful appearance and a rejuvenated complexion.  Yes, please!

You can sign up to get your own Daily Goodie Box too, no credit card is ever required!
