Here we are again, another year older. This time with pie. Once again, I cannot be thankful enough for the love I feel every day. And especially today. This is also my 201st blog post, which probably isn’t very impressive in the blogging world, but it is many posts beyond what I ever thought I would create. Cheers to twenty-six. May you be filled with many beautiful moments. And many beautiful photographs to remember them by.



Oh birthdays. They really do know how to make a girl feel special. And they also serve as a great reminder of all the amazing relationships I have in my life. So much love. And more growing every year.

A quarter of a century tomorrow. I feel so blessed to have made it this far. Cheers to the second half of my twenties. May it be as surprising and fulfilling as the first!

Last year’s spring came early. This year it feels like it may be lost forever. But as of yesterday, it’s officially here. So let’s all give winter a friendly wave goodbye, reminisce one last time on the things that kept us cozy and warm, and turn our faces towards the sun to greet the season that means we made it.


And happiest of birthdays to these blue eyes, who have come to know the end of my camera lens more than most.



Happy Birthday blog! Another really great year of photos behind me. Lots of exciting moments happened this past year. Babies were born. Other babies got bigger. I moved to Captiol Hill and watched DC spring to life. There were lots of laughs. And a kitty decided to stay. There was a beautiful wedding. Then another! My favorite season came and went. This friend got engaged! And so did this one! And before I knew it, it was 2013!

So of course I had to celebrate. Two treats for two great years, so far.
