A German Fairy Tale

These were some of my favorite photos from the trip! We wanted viking princess vibes so we tried some new stuff with our hair and I love how it turned out. This castle was so beautiful and as we pulled up to it we were listening to the Harry Potter theme song and it gave us all goosebumps. Actually I think it is the theme song but don’t hate me, I have only seen the first movie!!! I for some reason never saw the rest and now its been so long I kind of want to wait and see them with my kids.

Today was one of the busiest days ever for me. I woke up at 5am (somehow Atticus was just ready to go that early..) and then had a really long work day with an endless list of things to do – I tried to go home around 4pm so spend some time with the kids and now that they are down I am tackling the rest of my long to do list. But all exciting things so it is the good kind of busy. Trying to get a lot done before we leave for Seattle on Friday, I can’t wait!

Trendy things are a lot of fun, right?— But not not all trends are timeless. In fact, years down the road, our trends seem mostly tacky and cringeworthy. Especially when it comes to makeup. I still blush (no pun intended) when I think about my junior high school makeup routine— frosty pink lips and kohl black rimmed eyes (heeeeeeey, raccoon). Or the time I didn’t understand the art of applying bronzer, thought more was more, and went out looking like a actual human pumpkin.

  1. I keep meaning to start Vikings but it’s so many seasons in at this point I’m almost like, “Why even try?” Six seasons is a bit daunting of a binge-watching task, but then again, I watched all 7 seasons of True Blood in 2 weeks soooo who am I kidding! But, I don’t need to be an avid watcher to know you absolutely crushed it with this look! Stunning!



  2. What an incredible photo shoot! You all look stunning. I love the viking theme – you’ve nailed it, especially your hair and makeup. Really stunning styling, and such beautiful light. Let me know i you ever do a photo shoot in South West France or Bali 😉


  3. This looks so much like Hogwarts! If you haven’t seen all of the movies, I highly recommend reading the books with your kiddos first. I really wish I had read before watching.

  4. I wanted to ask you about how well that pink Kristen ess temporary dye worked. I got some and really want to try it but was wondering how quickly it washes out.

  5. You used to write the name of your lipsticks and you rarely do that anymore. What would you think about starting that up again? I LOVE lipstick and often wonder what you’re wearing.

  6. Love this post. I was born in Heidelberg Germany, so those pics bring back the feels man. Love the outfits too! You are so pretty!!
