“You alone get to choose what matters and what does not. The meaning of everything in your life has precisely the meaning you give it.” 👈🏼 This. I came across this lovely mantra (and as a result, the lovely account of @marcandangel) over the weekend and the timing could not have been more perfect. Lately I’ve been falling into the trap of turning things over and over in my mind, even things I have no control over and even though I know that’s crazy-making. These were just the words I needed to hear 💛 Do you have any favorite quotes?

Have I shared the story of this watercolor before? If I didn’t well here it goes. This is a very dear piece to me, because it was one the first watercolors I painted when my style, was becoming more mature. A lovely client recently bought it (and I’m guessing it’s for a baby girl’s room 🌸). It has such a cute and simple story. If you notice, on the left side corner, there is this rag doll sleeping, and close the little girl wearing a celebration hat, there is this adorable chubby bumblebee. 🐝 Well, this little duende girl not only is a nature protector but she makes all magical garden grow! But, her two little helpers ended up eating her harvested fruity flowers! 
It’s a delicate art print, that can bring a smile to anyone, but only if you look closer... 😁
Have a wonderful week ahead friends. I will be sharing some close ups of these characters during the week. 🎈

It's been a busy Monday! Shipping packages, meetings with clients and lots of social media. More to do tomorrow. I think it's early to bed tonight.

How was your Monday?

The sweetest new addition to our Brooklyn abode 🌿

As a double Earth sign (sun in Taurus and rising in Virgo) I am happiest when connected to Mama Earth & in nature. Since I’m living in Brooklyn my compromise is lots of plants in the apartment 🌞

I can show you this view now as my Uber-talented hubby finished off the hall closet with built-ins and sliding barn door.  I’ll post some close ups soon.

We had a belated Thanksgiving dinner with my man-child kiddos last night!! So nice to sit down for a meal with them.  Seems like they’re well and truly not needing their Momma bear anymore as they seek new adventures, grow their brains and travel the world.  Big sigh- I guess they’ll always come home for a big feed!😆😆😆

Anyone else with a case of the Monday’s? Can’t seem to shake this cough and my to-do list seems miles long, but found this gem on my phone, which I find quite soothing, don’t you think? 🌊✨ #nantucketdunlovely

SO much FUN with these two tonight!!! Beyond honored to be their wedding photographer. Paige is also a photographer so already I am SO STINKIN’ HONORED (like what) It truly is such a compliment when other (AMAZINGLY talented) photographers book you to photograph their wedding day. But Paige also has the sweetest heart + Mike has the best personality too, so it makes it even better. 💛 Paige is also one of my 2019 shooting interns for next year so I can’t wait to have her help me at so many of my 2019 weddings! Can’t wait to share their session on the blog soon! ✨ #stephaniekasecouples

This two hearts necklace is a personal favorite of mine because it has a different meaning for each wearer. For some, it means romantic love. Others, the platonic of best friends. Another group remembers those lost but never forgotten. What does it mean for you? .

✨ EIGHT MONTHS✨ Ellis, how are you closer to being one than being my tiny new baby? ▪️You started crawling!! Around 7.5 months we looked up and you were making your way towards the recycling bin, and you haven't stopped getting into things since. I'm definitely getting my exercise now. ▪️You make an adorable "guh guh guh" noise when you talk to us. ▪️You have been SO smiley and I want to cry because you're so cute. ▪️You rode in the cart like a big kid at the store today for the first time. You sat with sister and had the time of your life! ▪️You are noticeably thicker and heavier. I've just started to notice it the last week or two. ▪️You are constantly making us laugh and smile. I can't have a bad day with you around. Your happiness is contagious. Especially with your wonderful smile. We love you so much Ellis! Watching you grow is a joy!

Dear Fellow Foster Mother,
I see you. I see the ever-increasing weight on your shoulders and in your heart as months pass by and you fall asleep at night trying not to imagine the heart-crushing day that you have to say a forever goodbye to your baby that you have raised since infancy. Unfortunately, you never know when this day will be, and there is absolutely no way to “prepare” for it. Because this baby isn’t actually yours. Because you are this child’s Foster Mother. And with this title comes a ticking clock and numbered days together and a lack of permanency as you and the others involved in the case, ironically, work toward permanency. 
We live a different kind of motherhood.  We navigate a unique kind of heartbreak and grief borne from each open case that is intricately woven together with the deepest joy and love for these beautiful little souls. 
I’m honored to write today for the @deckandoar Dear Mother Movement. If you are a foster parent, or if you are interested in learning a bit more about foster parenting, head over to their account to join the conversation on my written piece they just shared. 
As the conversation wraps up, one mama will be selected to receive a MOTHER tee just like the one I am wearing. 💛 #fostercare #fostermom #fosterlove #fostercareawareness

What a difference a year makes (swipe) 🎃🎃🎃 Mickey’s Not So Scary is a long standing tradition for us and getting to bring Avery this year - oof - it was one of those moments y’all! My eyes welled up with tears as we were waiting in line for this pic. Seeing everything through her eyes was simply magical ✨ I think our first family Halloween costume was a success! What are you dressing up as this year?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been told over and over about the importance of time management. I’ve been taught strategies, listened to lectures, and tested out apps and calendars that were all intended to help me climb a (seemingly) never-ending mountain of work. And while that education has certainly benefitted me, I wish I’d also been taught how to rest. Not as a reward, not just when all my work was done, but as a crucial part of my life and wellbeing. 
I know I’m not alone in this, and I guess it’s just part of that “balance” we’re all searching for, but I wanted to share this as a reminder that you don’t need anyone else’s permission (including mine) to prioritize your own needs.
Recently, some of my favorite ways to take time for myself have included: afternoon coffee breaks (sadly at the dining hall, not fancy coffee shops), yoga, and watching The Office with my roommates.
What are the little activities that help you find joy & rest?

And while that education has certainly benefitted me, I wish I’d also been taught how to rest. Not as a reward, not just when all my work was done, but as a crucial part of my life and wellbeing. I know I’m not alone in this, and I guess it’s just part of that “balance” we’re all searching for, but I wanted to share this as a reminder that you don’t need anyone else’s permission (including mine) to prioritize your own needs. Recently, some of my favorite ways to take time for myself have included: afternoon coffee breaks (sadly at the dining hall, not fancy coffee shops), yoga, and watching The Office with my roommates. What are the little activities that help you find joy & rest?

Lots of cuddles with this little love bug today♥️ it’s been a glorious day, we have snuggled and big sister was even caught having sweet moments with her little sis. I hate when babies aren’t feeling 100%, but love the extra sweetness you get... I know before long I won’t get these cuddles anymore, so just soaking them up...
♥️
I also got some one-on-one time with my girl today, we made a Wal-Mart run after hearing about all their cute winter goodies from our gorgeous friend @cdekoker1018... I got this cozy pull over, along w/ another in sage, this new hat, some long johns, some cute joggers I found in the girl’s section, a new puffy coat, brownies, suckers and it was all under $100... bring on the cold weather! ♥️
I’m also on the hunt for nightgowns for Viv... she only wants to sleep in dresses. We searched all over wal-mart today, and target the other day... has anyone seen any?!

I definitely favour the brush pen - it's the lazy girl's best friend with no setup, and dries almost instantly! But that doesn't mean I won't take out my pointed pen from time to time. I definitely prefer the look of pointed pen, and find it more elegant. Maybe I should just suck it up and deal with the setup and dry time more often! Cause let's face it, this looks waaaaay more refined.
