You capture: family


This is my first You Capture challenge! My grandparents came up from Tennessee to see their first great grandbaby. A perfect opportunity for family shots.
Great Aunt Laurie reading to baby girl and cousin.
Make sure you check out the other shots!

be still my heart

I found these tiny vintage handpainted plates on etsy.
Maybe this wall?
Oh I wish, wish I could paint it.

I heart faces--May 18th

My most favorite face, my darling daughter Coral.

I can't wait to see everyone's entries. This is my first time entering anything at I heart faces!

I am submitting this photo into the Blurb Book photo contest. I am granting I ♥ Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I ♥ Faces web sites.

What a difference a year makes...

Today is my one year wedding anniversary and first Mother's Day. If you had told me a year ago between the Ouzo shot-taking and the dancing to "Let's Twist Again" that I would have a 2-day-shy-of-3 months baby girl today, I would have been skeptical. I mean, who does that? Who, in this day and age, gets pregnant 2 weeks after their wedding? Apparently, this girl. I had to call my husband in Africa(yay for work trips 3 weeks after your wedding). At 4 in the morning. Hello, honey? I know you are working and will be gone for a month, but you will be a father in 8 months. I'm taking another test right now, I'll call you back. Yep, it's for sure.

We (ok, me) decided to not find out the gender. Everyone thought we would have a boy. I secretly really, really thought it was a girl. And she is. A girl with reddish hair and very impressive belly.I am so very thankful for my surprise baby. We had a great day together. Tom brought home flowers on Friday.
