This Is the Time to Remember

October 6, 2017

"This is the time to remember, 'cause it will not last forever. These are the days to hold on to, but we won't, although we'll want to."

As we enter autumn, I'm reminded of how quickly Roselyn is growing and how time is passing by.

Rosie is officially 6-months-old now, and although I've been taking photos of her each day, we have hardly captured any pictures of the three of us together since she joined our family. That is why we were so happy to reconnect with our friend Valerie, of Valerie Bolitho Photography, for family portraits this month!

Valerie helped us document both our engagement and wedding photos, so it was very special to have her shoot our family of three, now that we're back home in Phoenix again.













We had such an incredible time shooting this season of our lives at the Desert Botanical Garden and are looking forward to doing it again soon.

We've learned that you can never take enough photos of this time with your babe – Roselyn is growing so fast and it's beginning to feel like if we blink, we'll miss it.

Thank you to our friend Valerie for continuing to document these milestones in our lives!

Frida and Diego | The Heard Museum in Phoenix

September 17, 2017

Hi! How are you? It's been awhile since our last update!

We've been quite busy seeing family and friends, settling in and unpacking boxes at our new home in Phoenix over the last month.

We were grateful to find some time for ourselves to relax amidst meetups and the move, and we chose to spend that time at the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera art exhibit at the Heard Museum this past month.

The Heard Museum was founded in 1929 by Dwight and Maie Bartlett Heard, prominent ranchers who collected a significant amount of American Indian art after they settled in the Southwest.

Today, their museum features over 40,000 pieces of Native American art and objects from multiple Southwestern tribes, including the Hopi, Navajo and Zuni.

We had a great time going through all the American Indian cultural exhibits at the Heard Museum, but were most thrilled to see Kahlo and Rivera's masterpieces from Mexico. We had been waiting to see their work in person for some time – Frida has long been an icon in my culture and has been my favorite artist as long as I can remember. So, it felt as if the stars had aligned when our move allowed us to see the exhibit during its last weekend on display in Phoenix – the only North American stop for the gallery, which is on a global tour.

The Frida and Diego exhibit at the Heard Museum was everything we had hoped it would be – nothing short of spectacular!

It was incredible to see Kahlo's iconic "Self Portrait with Monkeys" and Rivera's "Sunflowers," in addition to more than 50 photographs that family and friends had taken of Kahlo throughout her life.

To make the visit even more special, we had our daughter with us, who absolutely loved looking at all the vivid imagery surrounding her. We can't wait to teach her all about her culture and about Frida and Diego one day!


Did you have the opportunity to see Frida and Diego's exhibit?

Roselyn | Five Months Old

August 31, 2017
Between our cross-country move and settling into our new home, I'm more than a few weeks late with this blog post (#MomLife). But we're happy to share what Roselyn's month has been like today!

Roselyn | Five Months Old


This month:

Size: She's 14.5 lbs, 24.5" and starting to outgrow her onesies after only wearing them once or twice. If anyone's found the secret to slowing down this time with your baby, please share it with us now!

Sleep: Our recent move unfortunately took us off the sleep schedule that we were on – and a three-hour time change with a five-month-old has not been fun – but we're slowly working our way back to where we once were.

Things She Dislikes: This month, teething has been what Rosie has disliked the most, so she has been spending a lot of time being comforted by Dad, Mom and plenty of teething toys.

Things She Likes: Reaching out for anything she can touch, rolling over and trying to sit and stand on her own constantly!

Things We've Learned: That although the days have been short and the nights have been long this month, the moments we've had and the memories we've been making are irreplaceable and unforgettable.

On the Road to Home

August 2, 2017
I have some exciting news to share with you all today – the Burm family is on the road to home!


Ryan and I have spent an incredible five years moving and traveling across the U.S., but now that we've expanded our family and are raising our daughter, we've decided that it is the right time for us to go home to Phoenix.

This will be our third cross-country move and although these moves are always bittersweet, this one has been especially difficult – we're leaving the city and house we brought our daughter home to, along with so many memories, family and friends.

Thankfully, we have a lot to look forward to... like our new home being less than a mile away from Roselyn's grandparents and her Aunt and Uncle!

We can't wait to experience the city in a new way through our daughter's eyes and are also looking forward to having her surrounded by the unconditional love and support of her family as she grows.

We will be leaving the Mid-Atlantic and heading out on the road to home soon. You can follow my Instagram for more frequent updates about our travels.

Until then!
