change is in the air...

 So I've been waiting and waiting, and then waiting some more… 
for those pretty fall colors to come out and play!!
 There's just something so perfect about that crisp clean fall air…

I recently had the pleasure of taking advantage of this gorgeous scenery
with a lovely family of four, soon to be expecting a new little one into their lives.
here's a teensy sneak peek from our time together… 

a sweet quiet moment sharing rocks and leaves and just a little dirt
love it that the joy is just beaming from their faces
she is seriously the sweetest… & her giggles will melt you
and this guy… he could tell stories with his eyes, and his lashes go on for days! 
like I said… m.e.l.t.
Have I mentioned that fall is my favorite??

celebrate good times...

come on!  we're gonna have a good time… 
and indeed we did, yippee for birthday weeks!!  Laura's little one just turned 6 months, and I am celebrating my not so 6 months, hehe.  Mine was spent with wonderful people, sharing good conversation & of course lots of yummie food… 
It's always amazing to me how fast the time goes by, and before you know it, 
another year has come and gone.  So here's to good times with great friends!
now on to the celebrations… & I must thank the lovely Brandi.  
She made me these scrumptious looking cupcakes, 
and I just couldn't resist photographing one (and eating a few of course).

week lucky number thirteen :: celebration
Laura :: me

a special Happy Birthday to all you October babies!!
and next up will be… "light"

{hues}day :: teal + rust

having been inspired by a blog that I love… 
I've decided to try my own version of color therapy
this week :: teal + rust

I can't believe I posted something with sequins!!  so not the typical me… 
and don't you love the graphic?  "sometimes I pretend to be normal. 
but it gets boring, so I go back to being me."  yep… perfection!
& we all know how much I covet my chairs… 
I've noticed this is my current color combo obsession… so what are your go to colors?

balancing act...

For those of you who have been following regularly, you'll know that the hubby and I just recently had family in town.  And the best thing about them being abroad before coming here… was my delectable little surprise…  Let's just say they taunted me from that box, looking all lovely and mouth-watering, but I knew instantly that I wanted to photograph them for this week's challenge.  Which of course meant that when I heard them calling my name from the kitchen… well I couldn't very well eat the pretty ones.  Lucky for me there was one completely dipped in chocolate, which I convinced myself wouldn't photograph well… 

so here we are
week ten :: balance
me :: Laura
and it was hard… you really do have to balance them!  They kept falling, 
and one even fell on the floor, but don't you think for a second 
that will keep me from devouring it… five second rule!!

oh and the lovely Laura is having a giveaway too… so check it out!
