Jedi + Kiss


  1. These are gorgeous photos (great costumes, too). Did you take them?

  2. Cute pics. Are these your kids? They are great photos! :)

  3. So totally adorable. And I love love love the last pic!

  4. So cute!!! Really great pics :)

  5. KMont, I did not. That honor belongs to DH. He gives good photo. More of his stuff over here.

    Becky, they are, in fact, mine! Will (5) and Piper (15 months).

    Li, grin, thanks! I'm partial to that one as well.

    Mandi, I am lucky to have a photographer for a husband. The memories, they are captured.

    Sara, hehe.

  6. Adorable!! I seriously need to learn the secret of getting my kids to not run away from the camera...

  7. Yes, your hubby is a photography genius, but he also has very photogenic subjects. These pictures make me miss you all. Is that your front porch....I love the brick and I need to visit your home in person very soon. Jared has a job interview in Salt Lake tomorrow. Who knows what will come of it. But a girl can dream of moving closer to family.

  8. So cute! Will looks like serious Jedi business is afoot in the left one near the bottom.

  9. Oh my lord, Angie: these are gorgeous and I went to his blog and I was drooling al over his photos. VERY, very talented.

  10. Hi Angie :)
    Thank you for sharing those incredible photographs. Your husband is very talented!
    Your children look adorable too - great costumes too.
    Love that last picture too. It so atmospheric.
    Thanks again for sharing,
    All the best,

  11. Jedi + Kiss = ADORABLE!

  12. Cute, cute, cute!

    Jedi kisses are the best! ;)

  13. Did your husband take these? Amazing pics. I love the costumes!!

  14. Your kids are cuties. I love the kiss costume. And my husband would heartily approve of the Jedi and that cool picture of him with the glowing lightsaber. :)

  15. Awesome pics, Angie! I can't believe how big Piper is already! It seems like just yesterday I was awwwing over her birth photo!

  16. Britt, it really is a trick sometimes. My kids just never have a choice!

    Liz, yup, that's our porch. And it's beginning to be a crime that you've never been here. Interview in Salt Lake, you say? Now wouldn't that be nice...

    Allie, oh, believe me, he takes his Jedi business veeery seriously.

    Ana, aw, thank you! :)

    RK, my pleasure. I'm always fascinated to see what the boy will pick out each year. I imagine next year the girl will want a say as well. :)

    Jessie, hehe.

    Michelle, he did. He's there for all my photographic needs.

    Janicu, since he already had the light-up lightsaber, he was all set to go once we got the robe. I love the atmospheric ones as well.

    Christine, I know. I'm flummoxed by this as well. *shakes head*

  17. Those photos are great! The kids look very cute and I hope they had a lot of fun. Tell your son his light saber skills look exceptional.

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
