Here she is! 

Sweet Madeline Liana! 

A true blessing from God, this sweet little one is. 

And to two people who deserve the best this world has to give.

an ever fresh and radiant possibility.' - Kate Douglas Wiggin

Today I'm sharing sheena wilkins photography's logo. 

This is designed by Adrienne Holm. 

I had 'window shopped' artists for a couple months before I across this talented Mommy. 

Her pretty face caught my attention, and digging a little deeper, 
I instantly fell in love with her creations and style.  

This was a super easy process. She got me, totally! 

And here we are!

Adrienne, 
Thank You so much for bringing a vision to life. It was more then I have ever dreamed it would be!

Catching Up. Slowing Down

Its been a while since I've blogged a personal post. 

Photobucket


Holidays, birthday celebrations, vacations, and every day happenings have come and gone. 
Unrecorded and set aside for a ' I'll get to that post later.. '

'Later' has also come and gone a few times over again,
 and its left me months and months behind on documenting my little people's journey's.

We've hit a point where days seem as a big, giant blur because most seem no different from the next.

But, they are. 

Photobucket

My camera has taken the back seat since attitudes, exploring under sinks, climbing on top of counter tops and getting into Mommy's makeup for the 23rd time for the day has taken passenger to this crazy cycle of day to day adventures!!! Its demanded more of my time and attention, 
and I haven't willingly gone along for the ride.

My budding photography business has kept me busy. 

Photobucket

Photobucket

Busy enough that something pretty big had to happen to set me back on track. 

Photobucket

Sometimes we need something to wake us up.
 Photobucket

Remind us that life is short and worth living every little moment that comes our way. Good and bad. Big and small. 


Even if its pulling a strong-willed two year old out from under the sink for the 100th time! 
Photobucket

Even that moment is worth living.

 Enjoying it. 

Photobucket

Taking it in. 

Photobucket

Photobucket

The challenge?

Laughing at it. Smiling and knowing deep down, this too shall pass.. and you'll want it all back!

Before we know it, these babies will be counting down the days before they're out on their own.
 Ready to take on this world,  and I'll be looking back- wishing I read one more book, cuddled a little more tightly, and kissed a little longer. 
Laughed at the moments I thought were exhausting, and appreciating the ones I often complained about. 

So here I am. 

Slowing down. 

Photobucket

Taking the time that is well deserved for my favorite little people. 


Writing down their stories. 
Photobucket

Painting their journey's. 

All so they know now, and forever... 

Photobucket

They were loved... 

And nothing else in this whole, big wide world -- will ever, ever, ever be more important then them.

Well Mary, we're gonna have fun. We're gonna smile more, complain less, hug tighter, kiss longer... 

Lay in the sun, drink and be merry. 

Love and forgive. 

And... 

We're going to laugh!
