Four months ago our lovely peanut sweetly and calmly entered our lives. It somehow feels like she’s been around forever and simultaneously like a just gave birth last week. I’m often saying ridiculous things like, I wish I’d had twins so I could have twice as much Freia. I just can’t get enough of her!… Continue reading Four Months!
We managed to piece together a progression of Allie’s waxing womb while she was brewing Freia. The photos we took were snagged whenever we both remembered, starting around 10 weeks and going up through the last hours of pregnancy.

It slowly became evident to me as more… Continue reading A One Week… no Two… Okay Three Week Post-Partum Update
It’s the first day of Spring! We took the opportunity while Freia’s aunt trifecta was in town to commandeer Aaron’s sister Hannah (ATX photographer) to document one of our now routine herbal baths. And since Spring has officially sprung, we were obliged to accessorize the bathtub with carnations bought for her birth day two weeks ago by her… Continue reading A Spring Soak
