Updated Family Photos & New Gwyneth Posts


31 Last weekend my friend Mary, who is working on starting up her photography business, Yung Bean, visited us at our home for the morning and took photos, lots of photos, of what we love doing best as a family. Before she came, she asked me to fill out a questionnaire which listed some of the things we love to do, and some of our dislikes. While I was hard pressed to come up with things we don’t like to do, it was easy to come up with a list of our favorite things. Reading together, building Legos, cooking, eating, hanging out in the backyard. In three hours, Mary captured a slice of our life, if you will, and these photos truly represent who we are as a family. Messy nightstands spilling over with books, towels always strewn across the backyard, thrown together lunches, and lots and lots of Legos and Star Wars. I asked her to at some point, also get a few pictures of me nursing Hayden. As my last baby, and my only baby who really loves nursing, I wanted some documentation of our special time together. She did a beautiful job and I hope you don’t mind me sharing quite a few of the photos she took of us.

I’d also like to share links to my first 3 Babble posts. Thank you so very much for all of the love and support and well wishes at my announcement. I have started my column over there and have posted:

The story of my Detox saga

My top 10 favorite recipes from the book, so far

And where it all began by asking, did Gwyneth really make me do it?

Please come over and say hi if you can, I would truly love and appreciate it!

Also, I’m planning a new dressing room post on higher end premium denim, and started a pretty good conversation on tipping points for premium denim.  Come join the conversation over at my Facebook page!
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th Of July weekend, and I look forward to seeing you back tomorrow!
