My life Currently-

Involves trying to soak up these Fall days as much as possible, because we all know Winter is about to creep in and make us all depressed, refusing to change out of hoodies and sweatpants. For real though, I always look like a hot mess in the wintertime. But I WILL make an effort to stay in shape throughout this dreadful season, so I don't lose it when it gets warmer and realize I've gained some weight.

I'm trying to get Levi to experience playing in the leaves, bonfires, pumpkin painting, hayrides, all of that before we are cooped up inside for months. He was a little too young later year to really experience activities like that.

I am trying to stay on top of school. Its definitely a lot harder with a toddler than it was with an infant. I thought it would be the opposite, but not at all. He is always wanting FULL ON attention from me, and if I can't give it to him he throws his food on the floor, throws his toys, and will just lay on the floor until I scoop him up. So that's fun.

Levi is doing really well in school, considering I sneak out when I drop him off, otherwise he starts balling as if he'll never see me again. It breaks my heart, but with how much he has picked up in his short weeks being there, I know its great for him.

I also decided to name my actual Photography Business, get a logo made, and make a page on Facebook- so people can find me easily and take a look at my photos. This is just a start. I'll be working on more as my portfolio builds!

So if you haven't, go "like" my page and spread the word for available sessions, incentives and more!

That's what my life consists of currently... Pray this beautiful weather sticks around.

My baby turns 2 in 2 days.

Yesterday we had Levi's 2nd Birthday Party. I took so much time and unfortunately money, to plan this thing. And honestly next year, I think I may just let him run around naked in the mud and call it a day! Ha. The Mommy in me who has to plan, create, capture and have everything just right says no to this idea though.

After spending lots of time creating banners, favors, cooking, (or lack there of, thanks to my Mom and MIL for cooking the main courses) but still, I was ready for this thing to start!

Of course, just like any other big day in our lives, the rain decided to make its way to our backyard. After having everything set up and guests beginning to arrive, we were hit with a downpour which involved everyone scurrying inside the house. While I pouted in the shed, waiting for the rain to pass, I said forget it to the whole "By the Campfire" theme, and let Levi run around in a diaper and get muddy. The vision of everyone sipping hot cocoa in their bulky sweaters, and roasting marshmallows by the fire was ruined. Ohio decided to have an 86 degree day and rain out of nowhere. But I did get some shots of the decor, and of the fun Levi and his buddies had throughout his day! My Mom took some photos of the presents being opened and the cake being eaten, so thanks Mom!

We're beyond grateful to have such a big, loving family that showers Levi with so much love. He is the little boy he is today because of all his family that shows him joy, laughter and guidance.
Thanks everyone for being apart of his big day!
He is officially 2 on Tuesday. :(  /  :) I'm not sure how I feel about this. My little boy is growing so fast!
