Easter Minis

I had so much fun with my minis this morning at the Pink House.  I'm telling you, kids are the absolute best to photograph! So many smiles and giggles! I loved working with these cuties!

Freshly Picked Moccasins {Giveaway}! CLOSED


Are you as excited as I am?? I am so excited to be partnering with Freshly Picked and four other women who care as much about their craft and work as I care about mine!  

So who else is a part of this giveaway? Let me introduce them!

A Vintage Poster- Sara Harding's posters range from simple and elegant to funky and fun.  She has hundreds of poster designs that can match anywhere in your home--from your child's room to your sitting room. She is giving away 3 posters of your choice!

Remember Stella- Jenny Petersen's fingerless gloves are adorable and trendy, and they come in adult and child sizes.  I love matching with my daughter, so these are right up my alley. She is giving a mother-daughter matching set of gloves for the giveaway in the color Claret (pictured below!).

See Anne Sew- Anne Johnson is a good friend of mine and talented seamstress.  She sews adorable clothes for her children, and is offering two of the cutest little bow ties in 6-12 month size.

The Simple Little Things- Heather Malouf has every bow you could ever imagine in her shop. My faves are her sparkle bows and her faux leather bows.  Who can resist sparkles or faux leather accessories? She is giving away a white faux leather bow elastic headband in the size of your choice.

And of course, Freshly Picked who I talked about yesterday! You get to choose one soft sole moccasin in the color and size of your choice!

Below are some photos of their amazing work:

Justice Family {Lenoir, NC}

Where do I even start with this family? Whitney was one of my first friends moving here.  She invited me to play volleyball with her, which I avoided at first because she's an incredible player (think collegiate player...) and I didn't want to look like a weenie.  BUT I gave in because I needed friends more than I needed to preserve my pride, and I'm so glad I did!  Whitney is the nicest, most giving and humble person! Her and Trey are a power couple, to say the least. My husband and I have been so blessed with some amazing friends here in North Carolina.

I just love this family and those sweet little boys!

Nadeau Family {Lenoir, NC}

I attend church with this family, and they are such strong, wonderful people!  I remember when we first moved into the area, I would bring my then 14 month old daughter with me to church activities on Wednesday evenings and she and Rachel's oldest son would play together.  Now they are both in preschool! I can't believe it has been three years since I have moved into this area! There have been some great moments and some not so great moments since living here, but I will always be grateful for the wonderful people I've gotten to know from my church.  The Nadeaus are absolutely no exception! 

And aren't they beautiful?

Johnson Family {Marietta, GA}

Anne and I go way back to our BYU days--we lived on the same floor our freshman year, became good friends with 4 other girls, and have never looked back!  We are, in fact, planning our 11 year reunion for next fall.  It would have been this year, but someone had a baby...*ahem*. Just kidding, Anne! I'll have a reunion whenever I can with these girls! We have so many great memories together.  We became adults together, watched each other find love, get married, have babies.  And now Anne lives only an hour from my sister lives in Georgia, which means I get to visit her every time I take a trip down! 

We were fated to be forever friends, and I wouldn't choose anyone else to fit the bill!  Love you, Anne! And your beautiful family!
