Rex is an adorable blonde haired blue eyed little man. He has an adorable older sister that doesn’t like her photo taken. Rex was not a fan of his birthday cake but I bet he loved his nautical themed birthday party. He turned one at the beginning of March and had his birthday party a few days later. Lots of friends came both young and old. Everyone loved playing outside on all the fun slides and hanging on the bars. They also enjoyed the YooHoos, pizza and cupcakes. Oh, and let’s not forget Rex’s yummy nautical themed cake.

I’ll be there with some sweet landscape shots from here in the PNW for sale and display. It would be fabulous to see you!
Close your eyes for a second. Imagine the salty smell of popcorn and sweet aroma of cotton candy, the sparkle of glitter and whimsy of balloons, and the trumpeting of elephants and rumbling roar of lions.
You hear the call of the ringmaster, booming out over the roaring crowd in his melodic cantor, “Laaaaaadies and gentlemen, brides and grooms, welcome to the grrrrrreatest show on earth! A spectacular spectacle! The most giving of galas! The show of all shows! Step right up, and see the one, the only, the most fantastic gathering of clever coordinators, beguiling beat-makers, fantastic florists, delectable deserts, skillful shutterbugs, and dashing dressmakers all under one roof!”
When you open your eyes, this is what you see. A vintage circus! Welcome to the 5th annual bridal gala and charity auction of Get Hitched Give Hope!
You R E A L L Y need to check out Get Hitched Give Hope. It all started with a few AWESOME wedding vendors wanting to raise some money for a great cause. See their awesome success stories and families they have helped. Are you a bride in the Seattle area? Do you need AWESOME things and services for your wedding? I think I heard you answer “why yes, yes I do!”uhm… don’t those photos just make you WANT to go? If I weren’t going to be in Vegas I know I would be there. :) ps i totally didnt take those up there.

Today started the beginning of the end of the deployment. We have been waiting it seems like forever for March to be here and it IS FINALLY HERE. With it being here that means that babies are going to start being born right and left. As a matter of fact one was born yesterday. So yay Congratulations to Nicole and Matt! Welcome to the world baby Cale!
The Air Force was nice enough to let those few soon to be dads(and already dads) with wives due in March come home first before the rest of the guys. Pretty much the only good thing the military has done good for us in a while. But thats a different story. They flew into the airport and let us be at the gate when the plane arrived. So go team USO for allowing that to be able to happen. Terminal 2 at RDU was the place to be today if you needed a good heart warming cry and everyone was thrilled that they were home the patriot guard was even there! Makes me quite excited for the weeks to come when everyone is home!
saying hello to baby brother :)
Melissa actually had her little girl in November and today was the first time her husband got to meet their little one.
His wife, Amanda(you might remember her maternity session a few months ago) isnt going to deliver the baby here in NC so she couldnt come up to see him. I wanted to get a few photos of him so she could see though :) He’ll be there soon Amanda!
Saturday after my baby shower I headed over to Durham, NC to get my dance on. For the past few months there have been dances and live bands at Cuban Revolution put on by a production company called Chifferobe. This week George Knott Square Trio performed. There was all kinda of awesome performances as well performed by Kristen Minsky & Kate Collins of The Cuban Revolution TropiGals. Dandy Wellington flew down from NY and he was an awesome MC. I feel like I should mention the real reason I was there as well. It was The Carolina Fascinators grand debut!! They did an awesome job and I was glad I got to see them from the start because I have a feeling they may be going places. Oh well, I feel like I just did a lot of name dropping so lets get to my favorite photos. Sound like a plan?
These two got best dressed couple :)Then the Fascinators did their thing!It was an awesome time :)
