Luis + Joyce {Smitten preview}


I am going to be taking a little break to enjoy the New year, but I will be back on January 7th with a full post from this session! I am so excited for 2011! 
We wish you all a safe, happy, and inspirational New Year...
Happy Wednesday!

{Inspiration of the day}

I adore prints and the following ones fit my feisty mood. . .  And guess what? I slept 11 hours last night so I'm feeling extra feisty! The sleep was much needed, and I was becoming a zombie. I literally couldn't remember simple words or what happened ten minutes ago. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I like the excuse "lack of sleep" instead :).
And it was the best type of sleep too! No alarm set, no place to get to today, all warm and cuddled, wake up with lines on your face sleep. . .with I dare say,
 a little drool. Oooodelolly golly what a day!
These prints made me smile and LOL, some are in a language I don't necessarily understand or can't even pronounce, nonetheless I love the font and the feel anyway. They evoke an unperfect perfection and remind me that life is not about being perfect or fitting into a mold, but instead it's about just being you! And these prints just are, well they aren't afraid to say what is on their mind. Edgy and fresh (warning some have a little naughty language, hope you don't mind).
My favorite is, "On the other side of fear is freedom."

{Rylan's baptism}

 I hope you all had fantastic weekend! I know we did! Traveling from point A to point b can be exhausting, but braving the traffic is completely worth it when we see our wonderful families:).
Last week Parker went to Rylan's baptism, he was honored to be a part of this memorable moment!


Happy Monday!

{Only 2 days til Christmas...}

I am gitty with anticipation for Christmas! We'll listen to the Christmas station all the way to Palm Desert, enjoying the Christmas lights along the way, and I love seeing my families faces when they open their gifts. Hopefully, they all love them as much as I do:).  Here is some Christmas decoration inspiration from Frye + Design. Love her blog! 
And maybe we'll go rescue a little tree like this tonight:) and watch Charlie Brown:). 
Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

{Favorites 2010} Part 2

There are many moments in life that we wish we had a camera for and we looove being there to experience 1st birthdays, mac n' cheese extravaganza's, engagements, and really just because. 2010 has been filled with delightful moments. We have been so blessed and here are some more of our favorite photos ( in no particular order). I adore this photo. My husband took this photo at a friends birthday. See more photos here. 
Meet the cutie Jameson...she has the best cheeks and smile. Love her! See more here.
