Taylor and Josh

My weekend in Illinois was great!.... minus the fact that on the way home the serpentine belt broke on my car and I took a crazy ride with a cop who demanded I hold my baby instead of put her in the car seat while driving to the dollar inn following my bug on the back of a tow truck. Let's just pretend that was a dream that managed to slip 300 dollars out of our pockets.

Besides that I got to see my cousin Taylor's house for the first time and let all the relatives see Juniper. Tay took me too Ikea and I got to snap these beautiful pictures of that pinup bombshell that makes up my cuz. The relatives all loved June soooo much it was a little emotional for me but also soooo wonderful. Juniper met her great grandparents for the first time and quite a few cousins who teared up when she made her exit.

I was sooo surprised at how well my 3 month old did on the 8 hour trip to Illinois and how great she was during the chaotic end of the trip when we had to spend the night in a hotel and pray that Justin could fix the bug. I feel so lucky to have a baby that seems to enjoy travel and is so smiley around people she has never seen. I'm already planning future trips in my head but one thing for sure is were gonna need a better and bigger vehicle. Plus I missed my pup and he deserves to tag along as well.

Ps.... I am so into my camera these days it amazes me. I love taking pictures and whats even weirder is I am starting to love taking pictures of other people. Something I never really cared for before. I'm not popping up and starting a photography business or anything like that I just want to give those special people in my life special memories of the way I see them. I am planning to take pictures of the rest of my sisters and their boyfriends soon and will share them on here. Plus I am very into my photoshop program... I have had it a little over a year and am surprised at how much I can do to make photos more artistic. I would say this photography thing is my hobby and crafting is my job ;)


  1. Glad you had a nice trip. Juniper just gets more adorable. Love, Davina.

  2. I don't know why, but I'm obsessed with train track photos! Great pictures!
