snow days

I haven’t photographed our chickens in a long time.  Probably because they’re molting and they’re the ugliest things I’ve ever seen.  The two I shot today earned the best looking awards.  The others just flashed me their bare butts.  Seriously, their butts are bare.  And it’s snowy outside.  But ducks, now they’re always cute.  We let them in the garden during the winter and spring in hopes they eat every slug they can find.  I can’t wait for spring and to start working in the garden again.




If you are on the hunt for a great Valenine’s Day gift for your loved one, I have just the thing! Wood Watches, by Jord is offering one lucky follower of mine a $100 gift code to put towards one of their amazing wood watches. But that’s not all, they are also giving a $25 gift code to everyone that signs up! So that makes us all winners. Just click on this link – WOODWATCHES/GIVEAWAY/SARAPARSONS and fill out the entry form! Sean is wearing one from the Dover series, Olive & Acacia. Good luck everyone!

And we can’t forget about Pedro. He probably wants a watch, too. storyboardcomp002

my family in california

I’ve been meaning to post these photos for about a year now.  Photos of my family photographed by the gem of all gems, Tara Whitney!!  It’s crazy to think these were taken over a year ago, when sometimes it feels like yesterday.  To say it was an amazing experience to have Tara photograph my family, is putting it very mildly.  It was magic.  I can’t begin to express how thankful I am to have these images.  The most beautiful thing about photographs to me is how it makes time stand still.  I will cherish these always. xo

Project 365 weeks 9 and 10

I decided, since I was in Hawaii for part of these weeks, that I’d share a few extra from our trip.  Most of the Hawaii photos were taken with my iPhone.  I love Hawaii. :)
