The Johnson family in the snow winter 2016

This mama returned to work yesterday after three months of maternity leave taking care of my little girl, Kinsley. Even though we got out of the house a fair amount of time during my leave, my family and I didn’t get any of the fall bugs that were going around.

Brad and I have collaborated on many of fashion posts this year as featured on Beach Town Blonde (just a few examples Boho in the Quarry, Birthday Girl, Jetsetter). His coastal photography is incredible and his metal prints are a must-have for any beachside dweller or photography lover.
