Annual Trip To Celebrity Dairy

Sharing photos from our annual trip to Celebrity Dairy’s Open Barn days. This is the 4th year we’ve attended! The kids love the goats, mama loves the soup and gelato. Look here for our first visit to Celebrity Dairy or here for another year’s visit. Our babies were babies, and there was only one, and […]

January Raleigh Adventures in Photos

Trying to be better about sharing not just our bigger adventures away, but little adventures around our actual home, and our home city. Few things bring me more joy than photographing and adventuring with these kids lately. Enjoy! Pretending that we live at Oak View County Park, a favorite spot of ours. Butternut, squash and […]

While it was bright, blistery and cold (41 degrees to be exact) at the JC Raulston Arboretum this morning, shades of pink, red, and purple could be found all over the grounds. Of my favorite are the Japanese Magnolia trees. After these bloom, the peonies, dogwoods, […]
