If you are local to Temecula I must recommend going to Long Shadow Ranch. It's the perfect winery for those that have kids! We love meeting up with our friends there, the grown ups can chat and sip on a glass of wine while the kiddos run around. They have horses and  goats for the kids to pet and at night they have fire pits and occosionally they put on little concerts. I am so in love with this ranch, it will definitely be our new hang out spot !

Im all about simplifying lately, those of you that have kids know what I'm talking about ! Kids come with so much stuff and there always leaving it everywhere so lately i have been all about simplifying any areas of the home that I can! This week I tackled the jewelry armoire and got rid of everything i haven't used in a long time or had out grown and i ended up deciding just to get rid of the whole armoire all together and make this fun little jewelry hanger. This is the worlds easiest DIY if you know how to tie a knot than your in luck! All I did was get a stick from outside that was the length I wanted to display my necklaces and tied some twine to both ends and there you have it ! As far as the rest of my Jewelry here is how i organize that ….

( I bought this at a thrift store for a dollar but it looks like you can make it so easily with a frame and some chicken wire )

Hope your all having a lovely week !

We have been spending a lot of our free time at Parks lately. I like to mix the scenery up from time to time … we had a few weeks where we were going to the beach and the harbor in most of our free time but lately we have really been enjoying taking walks in the park. Two of our favorite spots (for any of you that locals that read my blog) are Guajome Lake and The Buena Vista Lagoon Nature center, i highly recommend these places to take your little ones !

We have been feeling a little under the weather yesterday and today, so lots of rest and juicing going on over here!  Yesterday Kyler fell asleep in my bed and he just looked so cute and snuggly I had to snap a few pictures !

I am so in love with this necklace from Ello Love Design! The Designer behind Ello Love is a dear friend of mine and when she offered to let me model one of her gorgeous pieces I of course jumped at the chance! I love to wear a lot of black and accessories with bohemian jewelry so this Wanderlust Necklace was right up my alley. You can also see how my girl Lauren Rebecca styled her's HERE and HERE.

I haven't broken out the camera very much in the past two weeks, Kyler was sick for a few days and than once he was better we were so ready to get out of the house and see some friends! Here's a picture of the little chunkster watching a movie while he was sick.

Quiet moments while Kyler naps// meal planning// clean home// fresh flowers// starbucks// cooking

This weeks photos are just little snippets from around the house while kyler napped. I always enjoy those moments where the house is actually clean… emphasis on moments because all you other moms with toddlers know it usually only lasts for a few minutes!
During his nap time I was able to meal plan a little and try out a few new recipes, i will be sure to share my favorites with you in next weeks post !

Also I just want to add that I do not do these type of posts to make my life seem more glamorous or put together than it is...I know sometimes as moms we can look at pictures of other peoples lives and tend to think how do they have time to do all that with a kid ! I know i often have thought that myself ! I say this because last week i had a few friends say to me that my house always looked so clean and put together in my photos but as a photographer i have learned to use the camera in a way where i can make something look different than it is … you often see a clean "section" of my house or a cute shelf etc. but i assure you it is often overflowing with laundry and dishes just like the rest of you #justtryingtokeepitreal ! Any how these posts are meant to capture little moments of peace and thankfulness.

It's the little things in life! 

Happy Friday Friends !
