san diego family photographer | just us twelve times | march 2012

We’re back for March’s ‘Just Us twelve times’ and I have some instagram fun from an outing we took last week.  You can see more of the outing in my lifestyle post from Monday.  We spent a fun filled day at Balboa Park exploring a couple museums!  Such a wonderful day!!!


Please continue on with the circle with my friend  Jayme Franklin | San Francisco Family Photographer.

In case you’re following along on the progress of  ‘my story‘ for 2012 …
The breakfast green smoothie has continued to be my favorite meal of the day.  I love it so much I ended up ordering a juicer, too…there are some mornings that I’m a little sick of the extra pulp in my drinks, so I may switch over to some days using the juicer.  Even though I’m not on a diet and I don’t have a scale to keep track of progress, I can tell I’ve lost weight because none of my clothes from last fall fit.  It’s pretty fun looking through my closet finding new/old pants that I haven’t wore in a long time.  🙂  And, I can actually see my cheekbones again!!!
The progress of our new plan to eat close to an organic,  whole food nutrition plan has been working well for Brooks, too.  He’s finally putting on a little weight during his growth spurt, which I love!  He also loves helping to pick out his fish from the market each week.  It’s so sweet when he asks if we should have fish or chicken for dinner!  He also devours huge salads and large amounts of raw veggies!!  Since I’m off of sugar, he’s also doing his part to cut back.  On his own, he’s decided to have fresh berries or mango for dessert many nights out of the week.  Even at school he makes sure to fill his tray with extra fruit and veggies!  I LOVE it!
To help make more time for me, I decided to drop out of two of my personal project groups.  It makes me so sad not to be a part of these talented groups, but it’s just the right thing for me right now.

Gail Pomare - I have chills. I love this natural image of you and your boy… and I love that you fill his life with activities for his learning and sense of fun/play.
Most of all, I love that you are ‘coming home’ to yourself… filling your life with wholesome goodness that strengthens your sense of self love and care. And that this positive self care message is being lived by your boy too – our job as mamas is to filter and teach, filter and teach, filter and teach…you are teaching him a life time of healthy habits and I honour you for it Mama. Brava. I am behind you 100% on the “Jules project” mwah!

Krista Keller - Jules – funny, the first thing I thought of when I saw your picture was that you have perfect cheek bones. Then I realized how feature for feature you and Brooks are twins. Wow. I’m also a huge sucker for flare so I totally love your photo this week! And – I have been secretly following your healthy eating habits…..I have thought about your comment a lot….the one where you said you are not craving sugar any more. I so crave it and have started checking out juicers….you are inspiring me….but I am old and take slow to change. Keep posting your progress please……its working on me!

BTW – what juicer did you go with?

Jayme F. - Jules, I love the natural feel of this photo, just you and brooks! Thank you for sharing your journey to a better you and a better family. My family is on a similar journey since my Noah has been sick. I always love to hear how you and Brooks are tackling things together but in your own ways! I hope that you will share more, and I am so happy that this project was not one that you needed to put on hold. Blessings each friend!

tamsen - So awesome to hear how Brooks is learning from you in regards to your healthy lifestyle! And maybe he can help you stay accountable in he long run too! I was so inspired by your yummy smoothie recipes on FB that I started making them too. But I haven’t found the right recipe yet and the pulp was making us all gag- so we stopped 🙁 I have to stay on track! I was feeling so healthy!
