they're all the rage rage right now.
i think it's a great way to capture those few short months when your body morphs before your eyes...carrying life on the way out!
and so i've been gathering ideas on pinterest over the past few months, yet i still wanted to do something unique, an expression all it's own. and then one pinning sunday afternoon this idea came to me...."Tea for Two." well, i guess we aren't really two, we're two in ONE, but you get the point!
and so the ideas started spinning. i gathered things we already had, (i like to collect all things "tea party")....picked up a few store bought cakes, made some lemonade, a few tea sandwiches, and some chocolate covered strawberries and we we're set.
Here's a link for these darling FREE alphabet printables....simply spell out whatever you'd like to say!
non-maternity dresses from here. wasn't sure how the fit would be, but turns out stretchy material can get you far! Ring was purchased from a friend and the vintage yellow clip-on earrings came from a garage sale.
my sweet friend jessica is getting her makeup consulting business started. she offered to do my makeup in exchange for using a few of the pictures in her portfolio. she is fiercely talented and unbeliveably affordable. she does bridal consulting, senior pictures, maternity photoshoots, prom nights, engagement pictures....
she can be reached at:
email@example.com or on facebook.

another majorly talented friend, who, when given a camera can do amazing things with it. she has been taking our pictures since the time of our engagement, over 11 years ago! "back then" she used good ol' 35mm film and worked wonders with it. she has a great eye for details and angles. i personally don't think she gives herself enough credit, but i will!
i didn't have yellow heels, however i DID have yellow spray paint.
now i have yellow heels!
the one on the left is a small glimpse into the nursery.
i really like the color and the way it's coming together.
my baby daddy. xoxo.
he looked so handsome in his orange shirt.
and who wants to party all alone?
the kids, (and adults) had a hay-day after we were all finished.
miss kae, (our favorite sitter) was here to help out and i'm so thankful for that. also, a grateful acknowlegement to jake's mom, (grammie) for making dinner so i could throw my pregnant self a tea party! :)
and so we wait for lovie to arrive....until then i will CELEBRATE the moments we share in one body! miracle of miracles!!
