This tree is in our backyard, and it is spectacular. I mean, come on.
This was the first year we dyed eggs with Ellie. We went old school, and the results were still really pretty.
These two are like two peas in a pod.
It snowed on Easter in KC this year, so we hunted eggs inside. Ellie hated it, as you can see from this picture.
This is the creek where Ellie likes to “rock toss.” On a somewhat related note, she recently listened to TLC’s Creep in my car. She thought they were saying “Creek.” It’s my new favorite way to sing the song.
We visited the Nelson-Atkins Museum this weekend. They were holding a Passport to India event. The entire family loved it. One of the activities was arranging flower buds into a pattern. Ellie got really into it, and I think you can see why. The results were stunning.
This kid is always running, laughing, spinning, jumping or hopping. But most importantly, she is constantly talking. Snapping a photo of her is pretty hard, but catching glimpse of her beauty is worth the extra effort.
Hello, hello. Things have been crazy around here. As you may know, I started my own marketing consulting business in 2012. I work with small, business-to-business companies who are based in Kansas City. Since I began, my work has changed a lot – how I get new business, the types of projects I take, etc….
Happy (Belated) New Year! How’s yours going? Ours started off nice and leisurely, but this week, we’re back to the grind with Ellie in school and Keegan and I both at work full-time. So, all that to stay, this is the first week I’m really focusing on resolutions, goals and intentions for the year. Every…
This year, we took Ellie apple picking. It is one of my favorite activities to do as a family. We can’t make it every year, but when we do, it’s always delightful. In late September, I went with Keegan on a work trip to Santa Barbara. It was my first time there, and I fell…
Over the last few years, I’ve slowly come to the realization that fall is a lie. Instead of holing up inside, covered in cozy blankets with cups of cider, I am, instead, flinging myself across Kansas City at a break neck pace. Sure, the activities are fun, but it’s never what I imagine or expect…
This summer, we’ve been exploring Kansas City like crazy. After months of Saturdays dedicated to dance practice, naps and errands, it’s been fun to revisit favorite adventures. One of the places Ellie most enjoys going is Sea Life Aquarium. It’s small in size, which makes it perfect for little kids with short attention spans. Also,…
Hi! I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
