This is a bit late in the day but it’s still Wednesday, right?
It feels like we went from winter to summer without so much as a crisp spring day to show for it. Last year was pretty much the same except that summer came in March and didn’t depart until November.
Seeing as there was snow and hail in mid-Michigan while we were on vacation last week in Cape Cod, we were so happy to come home to 70′s and sunny.
It’s been so hot that we already have the AC on.
But I love it. Love the warmth of a midday sun. Love the rich saturated clear blue sky. Love those fluffy white cotton ball clouds that pass by every so often. Love to walk barefoot in the soft green overgrown grass. Love the cool dark shade of a big ole maple tree.
And these two?
They love it too. I’m really looking forward to their first summer of playing together.
They are loving their bubbles and sidewalk chalk and tricycles and walks to the playground and generally being silly together.
And I am looking forward to a summer full of this sweet girl…
and her sweet smiles.
And can’t wait for another summer with this amazing young lady and her warm and loving side…
and her pensive and shy side.
I am once again enchanted and in love with every second of watching their relationship blossom. Sisters and BFFs.
Though we were having a terrible, awful, no-good, very bad day, we still managed to get this lovely family shot.
A big loving shout out to our amazing photographer Bobbi Rattai who always makes all of us look so good. You can find her on FB HERE
and online HERE.
Hope you had a great Wednesday!! Come back soon…vacation photos will be up Thu and Fri!!
It’s hard to remember every single time Cedella achieved a milestone now that she’s 3 years old. Hell, it’s hard to remember Isora’s milestones and she’s only 1. But I have a feeling I will always remember this milestone for how awesome and uneventful it actually was. You have probably seen in the last few [...]
It’s been a really rough couple of months folks. We have been stressed and sad and broken down. Between the terrifying threes that Cedella is exhibiting, Isora’s Curious George phase and Michael going off his medications, I am one over-worked and stressed out mama. This year on our 4th wedding anniversary Michael went missing for [...]
Things have been so challenging around our house lately that it’s only now, one entire month later, that I’m finishing up on Isora’s One Year Old birthday traditions. I hope to have her birthday letter all polished off tomorrow but really wanted to pull together a photo look at her year of firsts. With Cedella [...]
Things have been batshit cuckoo stressed strained around our home since Isora’s birthday party. There’s not a short answer for what’s going on other than to say, everything. I’ll write about everything that has happened soon, when I have a bit more perspective. But for now let me talk a bit about these two incredible [...]
This past weekend we had Isora’s big 1st birthday party with all our family and friends at our favorite local kiddo hangout, Play. in East Lansing. I really can’t say enough good things about Play. and it’s owner, Kasey. We LOVE it there and having birthday parties there is so fun and easy. If you’re [...]
Last year on St. Patrick’s Day I woke up at 6am knowing that I was going to meet my baby girl that day. Being that our family business is a liquor store on a college campus though, any day BUT St. Patrick’s Day would have been a more convenient to have a baby. But babies [...]
