Thanksgiving Weekend

***Sorry these posts are late. WordPress wasn’t allowing me to add photos, so my posts are behind.*** Moving to the bay area allowed us to open our home to family that live in northern California. Luke’s dad, sister, 2 aunts and uncle joined us for Thanksgiving. It was a Shiras reunion. And even though I […]


Japanese Garden

I took the boys to the Japanese Garden in Hayward today. It’s tucked away from the main street and something you’d normally pass without noticing which is why I am so glad I happened to hear about it and took the time to look on Google maps to find it. I dressed them up a […]


Item In action

Angie Ochoa Photography from San Ramon took this sweet photo for me. I asked if she would test out my new newsboy hat, bow tie and suspenders. I will do a little tweaking after this test run, but still super cute.

I have been wanting to try my hand at suspenders and a newsboy hat for some time now and finally had a free afternoon. Not too shabby for my first time.

From pirates, to Indians, to brave knights, to ninjas, to the Lone Ranger and then cowboys…makes me dizzy just thinking about it. Ha! So happy they came up with something completely unique to […]
