Our 5 Year Anniversary

Today marks 5 years of marriage for Dakota and I! I seriously don’t even know where the last 5 years have gone. We have grown so much as a couple and a family. I always love this time of year because we get to reminisce on all of the fun memories and accomplishments we’ve done […]

Larsen Log // Vol 9

Summer is quickly approaching and I am so excited to spend evenings at the pool, roasting marshmallows, and going on adventures! Mattix is at such a fun stage right now wanting to explore (and touch) everything but gets bored quick so we try to be creative. We have a family goal to do something active […]

My blogs purpose and future

I’ve missed blogging. I miss writing out my thoughts and connecting with people. But it has become way too much of a hassle for it to be worth it. When you blog you have to be mindful of you readers, your niche, when to post, what to post, good photography, the list goes on and […]

Larsen Log // Vol 8

It has been incredibly long since I last did a life update post! Like, I was 30 weeks pregnant when I did my last one, #oops. SO much has happened in the last 6 months I don’t even know where to begin. If you follow me on Instagram then you probably have a good idea […]

Mattix Newborn Photos by Tayli Stowers

I wasn’t originally planning on getting new born photos done because it seemed like a lot of work and the first week transitioning to parenthood was exhausting. Thankfully my friend Kylie and her sister Tayli from Driven by Love  were nice enough to convince me to take a few pictures while we were all hanging out. It […]

Transitioning to parenthood

Coming home with a new baby for the first time is pretty terrifying. I knew there would be a lot of work – changing poopy diapers, staying up all night, nursing, comforting him, etc. but I didn’t have much experience with babies so I felt pretty unprepared. I wasn’t worried about delivery but bringing him […]

A stroll through the park

What happens when you don’t give Dakota direction, ha! Our little boy was a little jaundice so I really wanted to make sure we got outside for a couple days to help get rid of it. We recently had a new all abilities park open up in town so we decided to go check it […]

Mattix James Larsen: A birth story

Our baby boy is finally here and he is perfect in every way! I went into labor Saturday evening and I was not expecting it! I remember waking up Saturday morning and Dakota and were joking about how that could have been our last night sleeping as just the two of us – little did […]

Baby Bumpdate // 39 Weeks

Well here we are. My last week until my official due date and hopefully my last bumpdate. I can’t believe how fast the last few months have gone by. In the beginning it felt like time was going by so slow. I would impatiently wait for my doctors appointments every 4 weeks and it felt […]

Baby Bumpdate // 38 Weeks & Nursery Reveal

        How far along? 38 weeks Sleep? This last week was really good except for one night. My legs were so restless I just wanted to cry. I got up around 1 am and just walked around my house to try and get them to calm down but it didn’t help much. I can’t […]
