These are the remaining leaves on the tree right outside the window to our office. It boggles my mind that it’s the middle of November when it seems like just minutes ago that Jon had to use both feet to push my massive pregnant body out of bed, back when I couldn’t wait for summer. [...]
I am in the process of putting together a holiday gift guide, one for women like myself, one for geeky husbands, one for infants, and one for five-year-old girls who think life is totally unfair. Maybe just some coal for her. I’m looking for handmade goods, products from small businesses, and would love to see [...]
Marlo is almost busting out of these pajamas, and when the day comes that she can no longer wear them we are all going to moan in despair. Because when she wears these we fight over who gets to hold her. These were a present from Cynthia Wise, owner of the Hello World Clothing Company, [...]
That’s what Leta loves to call Marlo, because she heard us talking one day about how when Marlo’s insurance card came in the mail it said, “Mario Iris Armstrong.” And it took some time to fix. I think we have unknowingly given her a life long problem with that L in her name being mistaken [...]

My only wish is that my Granny were here to see the photo for the month of February and have her go, “Are them two dogs having sec?” Once again we’re donating 100% of all proceeds to The Humane [...]
Of Scrumptious Bearded Armstrong! Jon has agreed to grow a beard for me this season. Here he is remotely managing and fixing bugs on the community site on our quick business trip last week, and I don’t know. Just something about a bearded man on a computer that MAKES ME SO HOT.
One of my biggest inspirations for photography is our friend Marshall Sokoloff who can capture a magnitude of significance in almost any juxtaposition of texture. I saw this string of leaves growing along a staircase that leads down to our back yard and immediately thought of him. Thank you, Marshall, for helping me open my [...]
