A few months back I took the boys with me for a little mama getaway to Mendocino. It was their Christmas gift from us and I was so excited to share with them a place I fell deep in love with during our last visit. All I could think about was how fun it would be for them to explore the wonders of the Northern California coastline. Being born and raised in California I’ve always been drawn to the northern coastline’s ruggedness. When you take time and look closer there is also beauty to be found in the tiny details, from the patterns in the rock to the tiny plants that grow along the coastal scrub areas. I’m happy to share it with you on Mother’s Day!
Although the last month or so has felt like a blur, we’ve been in our new place for a couple of weeks now and for the first time in a long time I feel like I can finally start to come up for air. In the last month we’ve…

He’s been really into dressing up and doing things “like mommy” lately, especially the hair in the pony tail bit. He’s been trying to grow it out just like one of his friends. With Mother’s Day around the corner I thought it would be cute to do another Mommy and Me outfit post like we did on Goat Island during a trip to Oahu. Plus, I just love having photos with him while he’s still shorter than me (ha!).
Throughout my path to living a more intentional life, I’ve found my biggest struggles to be with my little ones. I remember as a kid I’d hold on to everything. And by everything, I mean everything. My room was such a chaotic mess, no wonder I was a pretty angsty teen. Maybe it was the ‘teen‘ part, but one can never be sure. Now that I’m older, letting go of stuff isn’t hard at all, but it’s usually an uphill battle to work with my own children on learning to let go. Today I’m sharing a few tips that have helped me to help my little ones live a more minimal life as well.
