happy birthday

my sweet girl,
i can hardly believe how quickly the time has flown. it makes me sad that i am already having a hard time remembering all the little details of your first two years with us.  you truly are the light of my life.  sometimes i try to remember what my life was like before you were here, and honestly i don't know why i even got out of bed.  these days, you and i get out of bed bright and early each morning and share cereal snacks over coffee and milk while indulging in the newest dora the explorer episode...she's your absolute favorite.  I think swiper & boots are probably tied at a close second:)  Your most favorite people in the world right now (there are quite a few:) are: mommy, daddy, your grandmas and grandpas, auntie risa, auntie bethy, uncle's max & michael, miss freda, mister tucker, monica & eric...in no particular order. You really love Dora, and could probably watch it all day if we let you!  You also love to color, count and play outside & on your slide!  your favorite foods are bananas, mac n cheese, hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, and tomatoes.....these will probably change next week:)  you have the sweetest little voice, and sure know how to speak your mind (many times in spanish!).  everyone that has ever met you has left with a smile, you are such a special and unique being.  so smart, and sweet all the same.  it never ceases to amaze me when you can just tell mama needs a big ol hug and smooch...and boy do you deliver.  your doggie kisses are my favorite:)  your sense of humor is hilarious for a person of your age and size.  you have taught me so many things about the person i am, and most of all how to love so deeply it hurts.
my baby, my greatest blessing...happy birthday, i love you!   xoxo, mama

Kylie & Jake

A couple of weekends ago I went back home to watch an old friend get married, and she looked absolutely stunning! I hadn't met Jake before the big day, but the connection and love that they have for one another was so obvious it truly amazed me!  Here are some photos from their celebration:)

The boys getting ready!
And the girlies:)

Congratulations Kylie & Jake!! I can't wait to see what the world has in store for you two!

Minneapolis

Remember when I said I met up with some awesome ladies a few weeks ago?  Well, I'm finally sharing!  I've been doing an internship for the past couple weeks that will continue into the middle of July so I have been a lot busier than usual:)  Our models on this day were so darn cute, and put up with all of our funny requests.  Kellie (www.heavenesque.com) roped in & styled all of these beautiful ladies, and we all are very thankful for that!  I'm sure as I move through them, I'll have a few more to post, but until then...
If anyone wants to check out any of the other photog's stuff from that day here are their sites!  We had so much fun!!
