B is for Blueberry

Sarah Terranova Photography, Cucina & Camera

At just 7 weeks my boyfriend and I decided WTF — let’s do this thing! It had been the longest and most draining week either of us had been through (thus far). A week of back and forth, a week of intense emotional ups and downs, a week of insecurity, questioning, and lots of unknowns. At the end of that week we couldn’t take the instability of not knowing what our future would hold any longer. I was pregnant and after that week of reflection we decided to remain pregnant. Together we’d bring an incredibly loved and cherished child earth-side. We knew this was the right choice for us. All three of us. And now we could begin one of the most special and amazing journeys life could ever bring us <3

Motherhood: First Purchase

TY2_9312-Edit

Well, I guess the cat’s out of the bag! My road to Motherhood has begun and there are so many things I can’t wait to share with you. But first, I want to take a look back at a few things I, for some reason, feel obligated to tell. And as precursor, I’d like to say that this is my personal journey. My openness is genuine, wholehearted, and (I feel) it is relatable. My situation is not uncommon and my ultimate decisions are just as valid as others’ choices to follow the same or opposite path. There is respect and power in choice.

Easter Nests

How is it Easter already?? Time is flying by this year. I haven’t even dyed any eggs yet! Hopefully I’ll have some time to squeeze in a fun easter egg sesh before it’s too late. If nothing else though, I simply cannot let this time of year come and go without eating copious amounts of deviled eggs. (hint, hint…mom) Crossing my fingers. ;)

Gourmet Glamping

Sarah Terranova Photography, Lauren Hedenkamp, Vintage KC, The Royal Relic

Hints of spring are in the air, people (!!) and I already feel like busting out my crop tops and Birkenstocks! Okay, maybe it’s still a little too early though. I’m a total shivering wimp if it’s anything less than 70° and sunny outside. But anywayyyy, you know what it’s definitely NOT too early for?! Planning your spring glamping menu. Yup! And that’s exactly what my good friend Lauren and I have been working on. We recently brushed off the winter leaves from her sweet little vintage glamper and started brainstorming… with wine of course. Camping with friends doesn’t have to mean eating foil pack hamburger and Fritos over a fire. Although there’s definitely nothing wrong with throwback girl scout campfire food just for the record! But why not elevate the experience a bit, something delicious but still simple. We are starting to get used to this whole adulting thing after all.

Orange Scones

Sarah Terranova Photography, Cucina &amp; Camera

Guys! It’s been a LONG time. I’ve been away for quite some time and for a handful of reasons. I never really meant to take so much time off from blogging, it just sort of happened. There’s this thing called life that throws at lot of stuff at us sometimes. Money probs, bae battles, internal mind games, social media love/hate, ugh. When push comes to shove there are a lot of things that make me put my blog on the back burner. And if I’m being honest, when my confidence is low and/or my wallet is hurting blogging is usually the first thing I set aside. In an attempt to sort myself and life out I’ve neglected this once love of mine. But I never felt over Cucina & Camera, and I never felt like I was giving up on blogging.
