Peach Pickin'

Today was special because we went peach picking! We go to Entz Orchard every year we are able. Honestly, they cross my mind if we have a late freeze or a bad storm that could damage or kill the year's crop of peaches or apples... it truly is a sad thing when that happens! But no tears this time, it's a beautiful crop!

 The orchard isn't far from town and the family that owns and operates it is so kind and sweet.

 Elaine Entz encouraged us to taste and enjoy and... we did! Grocery peaches will never be this juicy and sweet. You should go and get some too, we left more than a few.

Evie Is Avant-Garde

Evie calls this "Snowman". 

This is "Julius the Monkey and Girl in a Bunny Suit".

And this is her studio, otherwise known as our living room. Unfortunately in this photo I neglected to include the third set of paints she used that were balanced on the arm of a chair to the right.

I think she's brilliant. How typical, right?

Mother's Day

 I'm so thankful for the little one that made me a momma... she and her daddy made me feel so very loved.

We've been getting spoiled spending so much more time with my momma who has semi-retired!

And in other news, Evie's really come out of her shell!

You know when something is overdue and it just becomes awkward after such a long silence? That's how I feel about not posting here for seven months. 

Sorry to be so quiet. 
I've been trying to focus my blogging energies on my photography website, which is up and going! There are still a number of things to add to the website, but I'm realizing it's never going to be "finished", rather a work in progress. 

I think I will keep Cottage Industrious going as a personal blog and the website will be for business. 
Here's the link to my photography website:

And this is a sneak peek at my latest engagement session, Ben & Rose. Aren't they sweet?

And here's a photo of a recent adventure we had up to Lindsborg.

Cute, right?!

So, now that we're reacquainted, I'll try to stay in touch!

Goldak Family

 What a sweet job I have. 
I get to hang out with families that make me laugh, and that inspire me as a parent.

 Hi, my name is Emily and I post around here every now and then. 
Lately it's been more then rather than now. 
We recently moved out of our old house and into a new one. 

I have found myself wishing for the rest of the world to stop for a month 


But it hasn't, so... 
we aren't all unpacked, and our front room looks like a furniture store 
(couches on end and chairs on top of dressers). 

Who does that by the way?! Fully unpacked and set up in under two weeks? 
Maybe people that don't have children?

We have however, gotten all three bedrooms painted and carpet off of the hardwood floors, which are beautiful! And room by room we are making progress. 

And this has become one of our new favorite things:
the feel of the soft, grass on our feet.
It would be inappropriate to leave your shoes on whilst playing in it.
We feel so blessed to be here!!!

Be Back Soon

If it wasn't obvious already from my neglectful blogging,
things have been busy around here lately.

We move in a little over a week!!!

There are a lot of boxes around here.

The heat has finally let up and we are drinking in the pleasant temperatures. 

We've been making our sidewalks beautiful.

 I have so many photos to share of what we've been up to, and a bunch of portraits and weddings. At some point I want to get the blog caught up, and get my website up and going... these will just have to wait a while. Sigh.
