My Favorite Room

Preparing the nursery for baby’s arrival was such a sweet distraction during pregnancy. We agreed (easily) that the theme would be a tasteful Harry Potter one, and it came together so seamlessly. We found pieces here and there that we fell in love with or had collected over the years. Now, it is our favorite room […]

Baby Taylor’s Magical Shower

Yesterday, we were showered with love by our sweet friends and family. It was beautiful. We feel completely spoiled. The baby’s room is Harry Potter themed (surprise surprise) and so it was a natural choice for the shower as well. Normally, I man the camera the whole time, but I was very controlled and only […]

Newborn photoshoot featuring Holden Brave!

His mama is my dear cousin, Tawny (travel writer, blogger, shopping partner) and she and her husband, Christopher welcomed this little nugget into the world six weeks ago. Since “four-week-old photoshoot” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “newborn” we are […]

Happy Birthday Poppi!

Isn’t he so handsome?!   Dad wanted to try this new restaurant in Fairhaven called övn. They do wood fired pizza, salads, and small plates. […]

Mother’s Day Brunch

It was a lovely day here at the Taylor Homestead. We had my parents and brother over, and for the very first time, Grandma Myrna and Aunt Cynthia. Food is my love language. What better way celebrate a few of the mothers in our life. Mom’s famous egg dish. When she asked if I’d like […]

Spring at the Taylor Homestead

We have been experiencing record highs this week. Spring here in the Pacific Northwest usually means 60s and a light sweater. Not so this year. My wife and I both get home and throw on shorts and a sports bra then pour ourselves a glass of cold iced tea. That is why I am so grateful […]
