Allison's Birthday

Having a birthday around the Christmas holiday, you almost always celebrate after the fact. One of these days we are all going to be in town and we are going to celebrate Allison's birthday on her actual day of birth. Promise. Just because you share your birthday with the most important birthday of all.. it doesn't mean that you shouldn't get the birthday celebration that you deserve. Because Mob's definitely deserves to be celebrated. A true and genuine friend that is always there. That continues to make the effort time and time again. She is someone everyone wants to be friends with and has a sense of humor second to none! The kind that hits you in the face a few minutes after. Seriously... girl has me in tears by the end of the evening... each and every time. Laughter is good for the soul. Allison, or Mobs as we all call her... is good for the soul...

NOLA New Years

Do you ever feel like New Year's is such a let down? New Years is supposed to be exciting! A party with fireworks and a fresh start. Maybe even a little champagne. You are supposed to enter the New Year with friends and family and celebrate! I dream of that trip to NYC to watch the ball drop, a New York entrance. But the reality is, I guess I am getting older and making it to midnight is getting more difficult. The reality is paying for a flight to NYC at New Years is probably just an expensive ticket to freezing your butt off on a crowded street of chaos. The reality is that itchy, sequined cocktail dress for the Country Club party can only be worn once.

Glimpses Week 2

If you are new to this, I have embarked on a journey to capture everyday moments at least once a week over the next year. To start from the beginning, click here. I am so excited to share this project with you and I hope to find beauty in our daily activities! Join us on Chic Critique and capture your own "glimpses!"

I am not a coffee drinker, but my husband definitely is. Making coffee with daddy is a part of our morning ritual. Coffee pots have come a long way. It is more like a space shuttle launch sequence but this toddler has no trouble navigating. Its the best part of waking up!

Sneak Peek..

A very special little boy is soon turning two and we are cooking up one amazing birthday celebration...

Glimpses Week 1

One of my favorite photographers, well, people in general has been posting inspirational shots of her "everyday" life with her precious girls. You can check out Shalonda's work on Chubby Cheek's Photography Blog here... and you might just catch her on the tail end of a fabulous 12 day giveaway! It was so moving for me that I wanted to attempt to create these moments for our family as well. It wasn't until joining the Chic Critique forum here and the kick off of their "Glimpses Project 52" that I got a kick in the pants and the jump start that I needed. It is amazing when you really stop and take a moment what beautiful memories you can capture in the simplicities of everyday life. I am excited about embarking on this new journey and while I may not make every week, I hope to capture as many of our day to day activities as possible. Please also excuse the horrible first entry. The light is in the harsh of the day and there are so many imperfections with the shot it is almost embarrassing to post. However... when you hear its music for the first time in such a long time, you remember the magic of the ice cream man. We went rushing out the door without shoes and money in hand and after a little "tracking" brought the ice cream truck to Mea and Pop's small town front door for Liam's first Entertainer experience.
