Power of Intention

June 15, 2015


MDS April Social Media-6I have a really exciting photography project coming up! You know when you put something out there like, “I’d like to be busier with my work,” and then it happens? 

I used to “say” these kinds of things all the time and then they happened! People would actually ask me what “my secret” was. I just said things in my head or out loud that I wanted. It was like saying a little prayer. Some people call it The Law of Attraction.

The past few years I had kind of stopped doing this for lots of reasons and probably no reasons but regardless I stopped and “things” kinda stopped happening. 

Is anyone willing to “say” something they want here? I want to know what other people are hoping for!!! I also want to put out intentions for you as well!

*How cool are these layouts for Maison Du Soir‘s new line?

Grant’s First Birthday

June 8, 2015



He licked the frosting off my finger and really thought about it for a minute. It was his first real taste of cake. My heart ached…oh to watch him enjoy a simple new pleasure, the guilt of giving him sugar, the end of a infant stage and seeing a little gentleman emerge from the little babe he recently was.

I know we picked the right name. We really knew him before we met him. 

Grant loves to give hugs. He now fake-laughs when he hears people laughing. He LOVES his dad. He repeats things that I tell him I think are “so nice,” like when he once lay down as if taking a little break. 

I relate to him by giving him his space and respecting his curiosity and then I indulge myself by smothering him with cuddles. 

Sponges and Sinks

Jen Soho House-2


I got to go to a cool talk given by Jen Kleiner at Soho House in LA a little while ago. She was touching on how to be a good listener, allowing someone to “wring out their sponge” while you serve as a “sink.” I’m always working on this!

These glasses totally caught my attention. Aren’t they exquisite? Hope you are having a very cool Monday.
