behind the lens || abel

abel loves to take pictures on my big camera, and he's really getting quite good. i always love to go through and see what he captured, and these are just a few of my favorites I found most recently. 
that abel, what a winner. 


it's good to be isla

two and a half months and chatty chatty chatty. that, plus the rolls and the chins and the smiles and the curly lashes... guys, it's good to be isla. it's maybe even better to be Isla's mom, because duh, I am on the receiving end of all of this greatness. is there a better age for her than now? my prize, my baby, praise God.


hot air balloons + a little film

hello! happy thursday, how awesome are long weekends followed by short weeks?! boom.
we had a great labor day weekend... relaxed a lot, hit up the drive in, spent time with family, watched friends get married + were able to catch up with some of our very favorite people in the world at the same time. saturday morning, we were up before the sun, loaded our sweet yawning babes in the car, snagged some donuts + coffee, and headed to see the hot air balloon launch at the windsor harvest festival. we all loved it. the balloons are SO big + now i'm trying to talk chris into a quick road trip to the international balloon festival in October... fingers crossed.
i hadn't made a little movie in a while, so magical sunrise, my sweet fam + hot air balloons just felt right. enjoy!


a happy birthday party

scenes from when some of our favorite people came to help celebrate our girl... a sweet little "happy birthday party" (as referred to by lucy). we ate, drank + were merry, i was really proud of the "peent" cake i made her, i took next to NO pictures (womp) + she got new dress up costumes, art supplies + bedtime books, huzzah! 
i love lucy, i love birthdays, i love parties, wins all around. enjoy!
