Bella & Natasha's {Fancy Nancy Party} & {Photo Booth Fun}

So much fun to spend the day with awesome friends. I thought it would be a fun idea to add a photo booth to Bella and Natasha's ultra glam Fancy Nancy party. The candy bar was so adorable and Lucie (their mom) always does everything top notch and puts a lot of love into her little girls party. If I were a kid I would of died and gone to heaven to invited to a party as fun and fab as this. Such lucky little girls!!

maple leaves are magical

God is so good. I just love love love when the maple leaves start changing colors. They are so magnificent. I had to take by baby boy and get some pictures before they are gone for the season! I think I am going to make it my goal this year to get all shades of maple leaves and photograph them next up orange!!

I never thought I could love so much. I still need to pinch myself every once in a while that I have this little guy. He has changed my life in every way. My sister always makes fun of me and says "I waited 12 years for a babbbaaayy" when he is driving my crazy. Mocking me.... :) smarty pants.....but, really it's true. I waited a long time (not by choice) for him. He was so worth the wait. I volunteered last week at his school for his classroom celebration. The class prays before every meal. I was so proud of him, watching him pray with his friends. I was lucky to grab this shot. A little out of focus, but perfectly imperfect. Just how life is sometimes. At the end of the day he has taught me to just appreciate all the little things. That's what I am thankful for. These tiny moments. I will cherish them forever.

This is me........

One thing that is really important to me is that True have a love of books. I have read to him nearly every night since he was around 9 months old. We get piles of books and cuddle in bed in our Pj's and it is our special time. I really wanted pictures of us being US. I asked my sister to take some photos of us when I went to Solvang a few months ago. These moments are the things I want to remember and hold onto after my baby has grown. I adore all of these pictures for what magic they are capturing between me and my boy. All of these were taken with her Contax camera. She is very brave shooting medium format film with her crazy nephew running around and acting silly. But you cannot duplicate the look. It's like butter. I am so happy, I love these!!

Getting Organized

I love to make things. LOVE. One thing I am not good at as I would like to be is organizing. I am getting my craft space back together and thought if I had pretty containers to keep my stuff in I would be inspired to keep things organized. I hope :) Here are some holders I made with saved cans from beans I used to make a pot of chili last week. I cleaned them, took of the paper and wrapped them with lace, adorned them with flowers and other pretty things like vintage buttons my friend Kay gave me and butterflies. I think they came out super elegant and useful to boot.
