• Classic Wedding In Laguna Beach: Ritsuko & Sean

    Classic Laguna Beach Wedding | Leila Brewster Photography & The Special Day on ohlovelyday.com

    When this pretty Laguna Beach wedding landed in my inbox I just knew I had to share it. Having attended a Laguna Beach wedding at very fancy hotel once myself (Paul McCartney and his then-wife Heather Mills watched from their balcony and even sent champagne to the couple during their reception) I know how breathtaking this setting really was. Planned perfectly by The Special Day and captured by Leila Brewster, it’s one of those classic weddings every little girl dreams of.

    The wedding had touches of Ritsuko’s Japanese history – she handmade origami cranes that were at each place setting and brought in a translator to translate the ceremony.

    Ritsuko is from Japan and Sean learned to speak Japanese to seamlessly fit into her life.  They wanted a destination wedding and chose to have an intimate reception at the Ritz in Laguna Beach. All of their guests traveled in from the East Coast and her family from Japan. Southern California was their compromise – have their guests meet in the middle! A great start to a marriage, don’t you think? Be sure to check out the gallery for even more lovely images from Leila Brewster! I especially love the black and whites. And how fabulous is that reception dress!?

    And be sure to check out the video from Jakfoto Films too!

    •  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding  If I got to take two naps a day I'd be this happy too.  And for all of you who have asked me about this playmat, I blogged all about it today -- link in profile. #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys
       Watching these three interact with each other over breakfast makes me flash forward to seeing them doing the same thing as big boys and teenagers and it makes me smile and shed a little tear at the same time. And then I think about how much cereal and milk I'm gonna have to buy  #thefredrickboys  It's been one of those days (weeks, months, years) where everything is going wrong. Been up since 4:45 since I couldn't get Quincy back to sleep after a feeding. Calvin fell asleep in the stroller on a walk at 10:30 (something he hasn't done since he was like 5 months old!) so his normal nap (my break to eat/shower/work/rest or only have one child to care for for a couple hours) is gone for the day. Quincy pooped all over himself so bad that we were both literally covered in . And he's already woken up from his afternoon nap after only 45 very short minutes. And I'm supposed to have a date with my husband tonight except I'm exhausted and covered in  and have no time to do anything about either one. Oh, and I fell down the stairs (sore but not hurt). Motherhood: somedays you win, somedays you lose. But on all the days you are, to some extent in this season of motherhood, covered in shit.  Here's hoping the weekend is less shitty, in all the ways. #beerme #battlefieldmotherhood
