spring on my mind. can ya tell?

WYC Designs Presets

You guys have asked me for years on how I edit my photos and the tools I use and how I get that curated aesthetic across my social channels and well, this is it. 

With WYC Designs photography is part of our product offering and not just by photographing interiors – but for other small businesses like New General or Meridian NYC and it felt like a natural thing to be able to provide.

I wanted to focus on the vibes and moods I try to invoke and so I just focused on these core 5:

1 – Crisp // light, airy and bright

2 – Natural // looks barely edited but slightly enhanced

3 – Vintage // a vintage warm edit with rich natural tones

4 – Golden // warm hue undertones that bring depth

5 – Modern // higher contrast and saturation pigmentation

I feel like these can be applied to just about any subject – from interiors, kiddos to food.

Happy editing!

Blackberry Mountain Take Three

Yeah, it was our 3rd trip up in 3 years. And get this, we plan to go back this summer with the boys.

Call us crazy.

But when you find a place that truly feels like an escape and elevates all the things that you enjoy – you find ways to go back.

From our first initial stay in the stone cottages during COVID, to the big group trip for Nick’s 40th, to this sweet intimate tree house trip celebrating 9 years – all of them are magical in their own ways.

What sets this trip apart from the rest was our level of involvement. We felt like we had the place to ourselves which made hikes, stretching classes, sound bathing and tasting classes that much more fun and intimate. We took advantage of more of the included activities along with exploring more of the mountain than we’ve seen in the past. It’s a great spot for couples (obviously) and for larger groups – so we’re excited to experience that TN summer feeling with the boys this time.

If you plan to go – here are a few tips:

  • Post Christmas is really quiet and very intimate
  • Leave space in your bag for their market/pantry items – Firetower Hot Sauce is a must.
  • They brew and serve their own beer
  • They help plan your itinerary in advance but you can always modify. Take a look a the HUB classes and spa offerings and add to it if you have the time.
  • Mixology. Mixology. Mixology. Okay, wine too.
  • A good portion of the menu changes daily at Three Sisters – so don’t hesitate to order something if you want to try it!

NINE years with you

or 78,894 hours and counting and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Well, maybe to have married you sooner.

Our life is as crazy as ever and I’m still crazy as ever for you… for this family we’ve created, for this home we’ve built and literally for everything in-between. Marriage isn’t hard or maybe it’s just that being married to you is easy. My life could have been very different, our start was far from predictable, but I knew it was you.

Going back to the Wythe this month brought back all the feels. It took me back to that moment on that brisk Brooklyn balcony when I made the best decision of my life. That forever and ever I choose you.

Thank you for everything you do for me and our boys every. single. day.

You have my heart. Happy 9 my love!

happiest holidays

from our crazy crew to yours.

may the season and new year bring you comfort and light.

Wells is One


What was probably the fastest year, or so it seems, and now our littlest baby is one.

Time is a thief.

Everything about him is pure joy and everything about him I feel advanced so quickly. From watching his brothers and to keeping up with the endless plans, activities, he’s been our on-the-go baby and he does it with a smile.

He’s a little babe that is just happy to be here and gosh, I couldn’t imagine a world without him. He has a sweetness about him, a smartness even that wins over every person he meets. I watch him in awe as he navigates a crazy house, how he tries to communicate, how he can down a pouch in an instant and how fast he can dash around on his two little feet. His loves are undeniable and my heart swells with every tight squeeze and pat on the back.

Kiddo has a way with just about all of us. The way he points and says “dada” to Nick is a heart melter. Most would say he looks more like Hudson but I still think he’s a bit of a mix. He’s more outgoing than Hudson as this age but not as rambunctious as P.

He is everything and more and I count my lucky stars that he’s ours and we are here celebrating his first birthday with all our family and close friends.

Wellsey

You will always be my baby. You will always remind me how lucky we are that we got three healthy and happy boys. Everything about you is a dream come true and know that even before you were born you were loved beyond measure. This is a super special month bubs and I’m so grateful that I get to share it with you. You and your brothers bring me so much JOY and remind me all the time what life is all about.

Even though you get an obscene amount of hand me downs, it’s purely for my enjoyment as I can recall Hudson and Palmer wearing the exact same thing and I cherish those memories as we create our own. You are a bright light little Wellsey and you have my heart sweet boy. Happiest of birthdays my little love.

love always,

Mama
