A Lazy Beach Town in NC

My parents came to visit for a week and we stumbled upon the sweetest, laziest little beach town I've ever seen. A lady at the visitor's center handed me a map and told me "we better get goin' cause everything in town closes 'bout five." At five? Really? I wanted to give her a hug right then and there.

But I didn't. Because that would have been weird.

Enjoy the first installment of pics. I had a little love affair with the black and white.

At one point we found ourselves on a ferry and had no idea where it was going. It was one of the most exciting moments of my life. I wanted to steal this phone and take it home with me. (And I know Utah isn't exactly a beach town, but I had NO idea you could drive your car onto a ferry. Cool!)

We love you, lazy little beach town.
More pics to come!


Power of Moms

Here it is--Valentine's Eve and I am parked at the computer blogging. Aren't you flattered? No worries, the hubs and I decided to celebrate last night, and I'm a happy, very loved, girl.

Speaking of love.. I submitted some photos to powerofmoms.com They have designed a website dedicated to mommas, and need some photos. I submitted these five photos,

Happy Heart Day!

I have been dying to share these pictures of the Rutledge family. We had a great time hanging out at their house and taking pics. We ventured outside for a few shots.
Ashley, you are gorgeous.
This little girl had every word of this book memorized. A-MAZING.

See? Home sessions can be fun AND beautiful.


Pinky, Meet Frida

Last weekend we were snowed in. 8 inches of snow might not seem like a lot, but here in NC.. it's unheard of.

I thought I would take this awesome opportunity of hermithood to grow out the brows a little. Have you ever plucked your brows into oblivion? Well, my little brows needed a reshape, and I knew it wasn't going to be a pretty process. So our snowed in weekend kicked off my brow growing fest. Woohoo!

Well.. this weekend brought another little surprise. I admit it.. I STINK at washing my face at night. (Does doing a wipe down with a baby wipe count?)

Well, one night I started rubbing my mascara laden eyes, and ended up irritating it. The next day I looked like this...
Frida Khalo and Pinky here are getting along swimmingly.

This I know for sure,

Frida Khalo

Hey, I look like I'm missing my right arm!

Have a happy week!
May it be free of pink eyes and uni brows!
