A Day in the Life

First and foremost, thanks to everyone for weighing in with regard to what y'all wanted to see from me next.  There was quite a bit who wanted "A Day in the Life" post out of me, which was quite funny because my life is not the most exciting these days!  Now, to Jon and I, it's pretty dang awesome.  These two little girls keep us on our toes, that's for sure, but they also bring tremendous joy to our day to day.

But regardless, you asked, so you shall see what a typical day looks like in the Xenos house.  

I took videos and photos all throughout our day and compiled them together in this 9 minute, 56 second video.  If you watch every bit of it, I'll be impressed.  I know in years to come, I'll definitely treasure this little movie as it captures this crazy, exhausting but oh so beautiful season of life.

SJ || Two Months

Well, my favorite month is upon us....FEBRUARY!  Which means I turn the big 3-1 here in a few short weeks.  

My birthday is the 15th in case you want to send me an Amazon giftcard. 

Just kidding...

I also share this month with my little nephew, Jack.

And of course, February's most known for Valentines Day.  People always complain when their birthday is next door to a holiday, but I quite frankly, love it.  
However, my husband may disagree.  

He was educated early on that Valentines Day, while it may be 24 hours prior to my birthday, is an entirely separate celebration.  

And every year, he does NOT disappoint.  He let me open one of my presents a bit early yesterday, and it brought tears to my eyes...

How to take professional photos at home!

Happy Friday, folks.  

Well, this is a post I never thought I'd do. First and foremost, I am most definitely NO expert on photography.  I took a class one time, right after getting my DSLR and let's just say I don't remember a damn thing.  

However, I have practiced for the past few years and I think I've gotten fairly decent at snapping a some great shots of my kiddos.  

Lately I've gotten lots of questions about how I take my photographs and applications used to edit.  I started to answer people individually and then thought it'd be quicker and easier to write up a quick post sharing my favorite photography items.  

First and foremost, the BEST AND MOST IMPORTANT advice I can give  you all is to invest in a DSLR.  It's one of the things I'd grab if my house ever caught on fire, along with my children of course.
