I scored this sweatshirt on Brickyard Buffalo a few months ago for $16 bucks. If you haven't checked Brickyard Buffalo, they are an awesome sample sale site. I love that they offer so many lovely hand made items. Check them out if you haven't yet.

We're doing well at the Luczak house. Spring is in the air, and Japser started saying the words Luczak & Jesus, so we pretty much couldn't ask for anything more.

Last month, we had the opportunity to partner with Altin Place to review one of their beautiful Koa wood inlay men's rings.

Justin's has basically been wearing it non-stop since he got it. He loves that the high-quality titanium makes the ring ultra light, so it is extremely comfortable to wear. And the wood inlay is gorgeous. It is completely flush with the rest of the ring, and adds such an elegant twist from a traditional silver band. He's received several compliments on it from school, and I totally love it.

Altin Place gets their Koa wood inlays from Hawaii, and all come with a lifetime guarantee, so if the wood inlay is damaged or comes loose, they will replace it for the lifetime of your ownership! I love companies with high customer service standards. They also have a satisfaction guarantee across their product lines, so if you aren't 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can return the unworn item within 14 days, no questions asked.

I'm in love. Really though, the wood inlay is such a beautiful creative spin on a traditional ring for your man. So ladies, if you are looking to lay claim to your fellas, you should definitely check them out. Or check out their selection of women's jewelry for yourself!

They have some great options. Here, here, and here were some of our favorites for men.

I dare you to find an outfit more comfortable than this. That's right. DARE. The gauntlet has been tossed. That is how comfortable I am in proclaiming that this outfit can transition from the playground to your bed with very little effort (or the other way around if you are more like me).

Because we all like to feel like we are wearing pajamas sometime. :)

Life has been more than a little insane recently. Since October, I went back full time, and then back to 3/4 time at work, got unexpected new responsibilities at church & work, fell waaay behind in editing client pictures, aaand this weekend, genius that I am, managed to stick my finger in a hand blender.

These, and many other little factors have contributed to my radio silence over the last month and a half. Now that some of those are a bit more under control, hopefully life may return to some kind of normalcy, whatever that means. :) How is everyone else surviving the new year?

Do you ever have days where you just can't bring yourself to put on pants? I have those days. A lot. That is probably why you'll still find me tight-less, wearing a maxi in November. Though I will wear a scarf, just for good measure.

new family session



We had the opportunity to shoot Justin's cousin and her gorgeous family last month. Marrying into the family, it was really fun for me to get to see these guys interact, and play with their littles in a way I hadn't seen before. Make sure you check the whole shoot out here! I just love this pic. I feel like it personifies their relationship perfectly.

I'm helping throw a baby shower for a friend at the end of the month, and was up till the wee hours of the night playing with fonts & backdrops for the shower invitations. I'm really pleased with how they turned out. Should be pretty cute when we pull everything together. Maybe I'll post a DIY later.
