    Romantic Sundance Wedding

    Romantic Sundance Wedding | Jenna Bechtholt Photography

    If I had to choose just one word to describe today’s real wedding, it would have to be romantic. From the florals and the bride’s style to the rustic Sundance venue and candlelight, everything is just so full of romance. And jaw-droppingly pretty. There aren’t any photos of the ceremony because the couple had a traditional LDS ceremony inside of their temple (and photographers aren’t allowed) but it just makes the photos of the couple coming out of the temple as a married couple that much more romantic as well. And really, can we talk about that bouquet and the bride’s simple floral crown for the reception? I’m in love.  Read More »


    Summer Camp Wedding

    Summer Camp Wedding | Jennifer Roper Photography

    I don’t know about you, but I find something so fun and sweet about the idea of a summer camp wedding. Sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows with all of your loved ones – pretty much a perfect celebration, right? That’s what today’s couple thought, and their mostly DIY campground wedding looks like it was a truly a fun time.  Read More »

    Canadian Farm Wedding

    Canadian Cornfield Wedding | Mikaela Ruth Photography

    Today’s wedding is every farm girl’s dream (and many city girls’ dreams too!). The bride grew up on the farm where she got married, she and her fiancé and their families completely renovated the barn to get it wedding-ready, and she even had her photo taken with her favorite cow. If this wedding isn’t totally and completely this couple, I don’t know what is.

    •  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot. Hashtag: feeling it. Posted a little bts on stories/snap too. #quincysgotmovesliketimberlake #38weeks #quincysweekbyweek
       There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice! Head to my blog to enter (link in profile) and tell your friends  #OLDfavefinds #babywearing #mywildbird #giveaway #fredrickfamfallfun  Never did I ever expect to be so outnumbered by boys. I get asked so often if we're going to have one more baby so I can "try for a girl." It kind of feels like the person asking is insinuating that I'm missing out on something. While I always pictured myself as a mom of girls (or at least one) and had to mourn the idea I had in my mind of braiding hair and getting mother-daughter pedis, prom and wedding dress shopping, and ballet lessons, I've never felt that I'm missing out on anything getting to be the mom of my three sons. When someone says to me "wow, you have your hands full" or "you must be tired" I just smile. Because I am tired. And my hands are full. But so is my heart.  #tiredeyesfullhandscantlose #momofboys #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies #mommacharlieselfies #charlieandquincy And I'm hosting a @mywildbird sling giveaway on my blog tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that!
