last week.

we hope you had a happy weekend! here are just a couple of moments documented around our house this past week…

i really love this little family of mine.
this man who is my best friend, this baby girl attached to my hip with just the right amount of chubby cheek to kiss kiss kiss all day long, and that bully of ours who keeps us laughing and entertained…

of course there are difficult moments during every day. of course. but this little family of mine, i just can’t describe how they make me feel. life is good when i’m with them. really really good. you know what i’m saying?
  1. You are so sweet!
    You have a beautiful family :)


  2. Chelsea

    agreed about the right amount of chubby cheek! you have a really adorable family. the first picture is so funny, it's tough being a baby! xo

  3. One can see that in every single pic; the love you have for them and how much they love you!

  4. amber

    your little family is precious!! e has the most adorable baby rolls :)

  5. Awww, what's wrong with Kingsley? Was he grounded or just bored?

    You do have a beautiful family. I swear miss E. must be the cutest baby ever.

  6. Sher

  8. those pillows are adorable!

    and i still don't even know how it's possible for one little child to be THAT cute….

  9. colleen

    love those cheeks! and mister kingsley, of course.

  10. i know exactly what you're saying. baby girl is the cutest one i've seen in a long time, and that's saying something, working in a nursery at my church. and lucky you, married to your best friend :)

  11. Tina

    I know what you are saying. Family is everything, and even though there are difficult days there's nothing like knowing they are there with you…..and you really have a very beautiful family :)

  12. I feel ya! And the salad and smoothie look like perfect summer meals.

  13. tRiSh

    This is really important to remember the good things like you do with those beautiful pictures. Of course there are difficult moments, who doesn't have any? But when the good ones make up for the less good ones, then it's ok.
    I really enjoy watching your little family so I wanted to thank you for sharing your precious moment with us, strangers.
    Always, <3

  16. i dream of having such a life like this. so so lovely, thank you for this. i always get a little jolt of happy when i see you have a new post, naomi. :)

  17. I love reading about your little family – thank you for sharing! Out of curiosity…where did you find your dining table? I'm trying to find something that's equally unique looking, but I'm just not having any luck.

  18. Olivas

    I know exactly what you're saying. I don't know what I thought growing up, about what having my own family would be like, but I didn't think it would be this wonderful or this perfect. I didn't realize I would love them so much or that they would make me so happy. It's crazy, this little family of mine, but it's just so good I almost can't stand it. Thanks for reminding me of that today.

  35. Morgan

    little E has the cutest smile ever!

  36. Caty

    Love the photos! She really does have the most precious little smile!

  37. Natasha

    I love seeing your photos because you guys all seem so happy, especially that precious little angel. Hope you have a good Monday.

  45. darling girl! Your house seems so beautiful too! I hope you do a home tour, at least of a room here and there. I'd love to see your style in action.

  46. jamie

    no wonder you have such a sweet, charmed life – you keep things in perspective, cherish your loved ones, and are always grateful for your blessings! what an inspiration.

  47. Tatiana

    whose colorful bed is that? is it Eleanor's? it is so pretty and i love the color contrasting!

  48. Megan

  49. Keli

    too stinking cute.

  50. So adorable!!!

    You know, I love the photos you post on your blog, but I think the main reason I love reading even though I've never met you is your attitude about life. It took me a long time to realize that all I needed to be happy was to really look around me and be grateful for everything I have. And now every time I come here, even if I'm having a bad day, I know I'll get a little reminder of that. :)

  51. Chelsey

    Your baby is adorable!

  52. your man and the baby have same hairstyle ;)
