Thy say, “every couple has a song,” well, if that is an accurate truth, than I claim this one for our own
Out of the two tiny houses I photographed, the cabin was my favorite!
Rescued off of a pivot, the outside is the original frame, and the beams inside are cedar logs that they grew mushrooms on to give it a real rustic feel. The front door is an old door off of Bloomingdale’s NY, and the kitchenette is the worlds smallest complete kitchen; sink, two burners, refrigerator and freezer all in one small unit!
And yes, the bathroom vanity is an old table saw.
From behind the lens,
I had the opportunity to photograph other peoples hard work this past weekend.
My husbands aunt and uncle have taken a couple of unwanted sheds, loved on them, and turned them into beautiful works of art!
And this is their payoff:
From behind the lens,
Don’t let the cuteness of our little darling fool you, she has been quite the grump today. I’m hoping the nap she is now taking on my arm will help improve her mood, if not, Lord help me, and send Jeff home early!
This little girl makes me so proud and happy to be her mama! Everyday she takes this heart of mine and winds it ’round her little finger tighter and tighter. I look forward to her growing and becoming a little lady, but right now I am happy to have the cuddly baby that needs me, because all too soon she won’t.
Today, I have not only manged to make, pour, stir and sip my coffee, I have also taken a shower and not only shaved both armpits but both legs as well!
Quite the accomplishment when one has a cantankerous wee one.
Yesterday we got to spend the day all together as a family, and it was lovely! Then today, knowing how much I miss him while he is away working to provide for us, Jeff has been sharing bits of what his day has been like so far via texts and pictures. The last picture I received was of a dog sitting under a sagebush, and the first of a big ol’ mama cow stretched out and a guy pulling her calf by hand, hopefully that one ends “happily ever after,” and mama and baby trot off together and nobody gets kicked in the face…
And that has been our day up to this point. On the list of things that need to get done:
- one of us needs to do a little horse training
- one of us still needs to make a grocery list
- one of us needs a bath and a nap
- And we all need to take a little trip to the store to replenish our food supply
Hello! We are the Thomsen family! the 3 of us are: husband Jeff, wife Sam, and daughter Ava. This is the story of our life ♡
Jeff and Sam met in 2011 at a mutual friends home. He thought she was the most beautiful girl he’d ever laid eyes on, and she thought he was funny and cute. They became friends, and ever so slowly, totally fell in love with each other ♡
Some time later, Jeff decided it was time to do something about their love for each other, and so, on a beautiful summers day he asked Sam to be his forever and of course she said yes ♡
August 2014 they sealed the deal with a kiss and drove off in to the unknown of this new and exciting life ♡
And, as if the first chapter in what will always be our favorite storybook wasn’t exciting enough, chapter two arrived ♡
In January 2016, a weary stork alighted on a certain window, in a certain house, in a certain town, and laid his little pink bundle in the arms of an overjoyed mama and a very proud papa ♡
Our life is so full of love, laughter and beauty it can’t help but spill over a little here and there ♡ feel free to come along with us on some of our adventures, and may you be blessed by what is written and shown ♡
