Baby Love

Today I fell in love. One of my best friends gave birth to the most beautiful little girl in the world just a few days ago. And I was trusted with the task of taking the first official baby photos of her. Honestly, I could not be happier with the moments I captured, and I truly hope that both mom and dad love them as well. Their daughter is truly a blessing from above and these photos literally take my breath away. Congratulations to you both, Jodi and Chris. Welcome to the world Mya Maddison.

I Wish You Enough

I Wish You Enough I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess I wish you enough. ~Bob Perks~

Perfect Timing

This beautiful family and I have been in attempts for quite some time now to get together for a mini family photo shoot. All I can say after today's shoot, was talk about perfect timing. The day turned out beautiful, and I have never seen such awesome and cooperative children in all my life. They were wonderful and made my job easier than ever. I really hope this family loves the moments I was able to capture of them. I think they turned out beautiful, and the snow we got yesterday was definitly the perfect added touch!

I Pinch Myself...

Photobucket It has quickly become a new tradition, that each morning when I wake up, I pinch myself. Waking up in our new house everyday has been the greatest gift I could have ever hoped for. I never thought I could have found the perfect home. But it's true, Matt and I lucked out in more ways than we can even begin to imagine. This is now our home. And we LOVE it. We are eternally grateful and so overwhelmed by how much has changed in a little over a month. We are also so lucky that for the most part, the whole process went pretty smooth, including the move. So many of our friends and family worked so hard that day to help us out in so many ways. We are so blessed to know such amazing people that are so willing to help out. Thank you so much to everyone that was a part of our new journey and beginning. We love you. Photobucket In other amazing news today, one of my best friends had her first baby last night. Congratulations Jodi and Chris and welcome to the world Mya! I cannot wait to meet you. It was only a couple of weeks ago, that this picture was taken at Jodi's baby shower. How time flies! Photobucket Back to the homefront, most of everything has been unpacked and set up. Still a few rooms to tackle in the basement, along with my scrapbook room. Hopefully this weekend everything will come together. Getting this completed is definitly high a-top my priority "to-do" list. We'll see how much get's done...fingers crossed! :)

Every Once in A While

Every once in a while, it seems, at just the perfect moment, and the perfect time, I come across little signs here and there that always put back that little reassurance I sometimes feel I have lost along the way. Today that sign was this quote. I could not have needed it at a better time. “Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward.” ~Henry Ford~

Still Here...

Well it has been a HUGE whirlwind for us since the beginning of the month. Seriously, looking at my November calendar I am in awe. It is already the 9th??? Crazy, I know. We are finally settling in to our beautiful new house. I am still pinching myself about the whole entire process. Moving is definitly no easy task, but we were so blessed to have such amazing friends and family help us out along the way. We could not be more grateful for all their help and time. Our place is truly starting to begin to feel like HOME. Still in the process of having things hooked up and transferred over so soon I hope to have my internet back up and running...oh how I've missed it!:) I have so much more to post about!
