24 hours of happy, something old & something new...


   photo by yan photography

i'm blogging before i hop into bed friday night and jon just showed me this. i'm probably the last person on earth to know about it. have you seen it yet? pharrell created the world's first 24 hour music video. and i can't. stop. watching it. and it's also what our children will be listening to as they do their saturday chores in the morning. so there's that for your weekend...

did i lose you to the video? it's ok. it's pretty captivating. now onto the rest of the post!

these photos feel like they are from a lifetime ago. boggles the mind actually. our baby was still a baby, even though i still try and hold him ALL THE TIME because i don't want him to grow up. we had no idea the awesomeness that weston's hair would become. we promised isaac we would never shave his head again...poor kid. that dress that ruby is wearing? it's almost too small for lulu now. ila's smile is still the same though. our bikes weren't rusty from the salty air. and i just realized we had a white picket fence. oh! and jon's shirt actually says "hello, aloha, goodbye".

so there's something relatively old for you...

and here's something new!

while we're still patiently awaiting the launch of the real site (remember? this one is only temporary. programmer's schedule and stuff) there are still some fun things i'd like to send your way.

to receive a couple extra "if i were..." menu ideas and secret recipes every month that i only share via email click here. i can't even keep track of all the ideas i have for the "if i were..." series! and the first recipe coming your way when you sign up is that epiphany of a banana bread i posted on instagram.

and i still can't stop thinking about that video. who couldn't use 24 hours of happy? have a great weekend you guys!
