2019 | Week Eleven

This week we got to take a hike at Pickle Springs Nature Area with our wild and free friends and it was absolutely beautiful! We also started working in our garden to get it ready for spring. This is my favorite time of year!

p.s. I’ll say it’s my favorite time of year again in the summer and the fall. It’s just how I roll.

2019 | Week Ten

This week was tough for me. It started with the worst ear pain I’ve ever experienced accompanied by a migraine. I wasn’t very inspired and struggled to stay as motivated as I usually am. I didn't take any photos partly because of the hard week I had and partly because I’m attempting to be more mindful with the photos I share online of Theo.

It’s hard to find a balance when my art is sharing the beautiful things in ordinary life.

I’m sure I’ll find some kind of happy medium as I stumble along my way.

I didn’t think I’d have a photo to share this week when I opened the backdoor of our house to a gift from one of our chickens. Her very first egg! We have been waiting and waiting for spring and the first egg is a sign that SPRING IS COMING!!! So thankful for this gift today… I needed it!

2019 | Week Nine

This week for school we learned about our neighborhood! We used to live in one of the smallest neighborhoods in St. Louis and moved to the largest one last year. We enjoyed looking at maps, talking about the history of Dutchtown and checking out some of the local parks and shops.

2019 | Week Eight

I didn't get my camera out this week until today! I’ll do better documenting next week. We’re enjoying a visit from Theo’s Indiana grandparents this weekend. We checked out the new museum at the Arch and went to the top even though the view was severely limited with the fog today.

A Glimpse of the Sutton Family

A typical Saturday in the life of the Suttons. Reading, dance parties, walks and delicious food! This family and their home is so full of love and I’m grateful to have gotten a behind the scenes look at how they do life!

2019 | Week Seven

I’m really feeling the black and whites this week! We did a lot of handwriting practice this week and had the best time with a buddy we get to hang out with on Thursdays. It’s so much fun watching Theo help with a little one!

2019 | Week Six

Not gonna lie, the winter is starting to get to us over here and we're getting a bit antsy! Looking forward to spring and enjoying some cozy days indoors. A visit from our Memphis family was such a treat after a tiresome week.

2019 | Week Four

Prepare yourself for a total of 71 photos. Ha! We’ve had a wonderful week. Theo started wanting to pick out his own clothes and is quite stylish with his button up shirt + sweatpants combo. He also started to really read for real and it’s been just the best. He played with Legos for approximately 12829028 hours (I love how he sorts his legos into piles,) played chess and practiced piano.

This weekend we took a trip to celebrate his upcoming birthday and brought one of his cousins along. This nature loving kiddo was in heaven! We hiked and then stayed in a cabin on a horse farm. There weren’t many toys in the cabin, and once again my views on minimalist living were confirmed. The boys played for hours with a few plastic dinosaurs, blankets and Jenga blocks. We sat and drank tea, walked down to see the horses and read. It was so refreshing and I cried on the way home because I can hardly wait till it’s our turn to live in the country.

2019 | Week Three

It’s been a quiet week around here. We’re embracing winter and reading a lot while snuggled under blankets. Thanks to the hubs for snapping a few photos of me doing what I love most.
