    I’m not one to get really wordy or mushy-gushy. So I’ll just leave it at this:

  3. ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOOT // PART ONE

    HollyZach_©DawnMGibson_setA1

    We took these photos just a couple of days before Christmas, while we were home for the holidays. Yeah, our anniversary is in July. But I am so determined to have yearly anniversary photos taken, that I’m just going to go ahead and call this the one year shoot. Even if it was 5 months late. 

    Our photographer, Dawn, did such an amazing job! And I’m horrible at narrowing photos down for a post, especially when I have almost 200 awesome ones. So I’m just going to go ahead and split this into two posts. Because I can. Check back tomorrow for the second half!

    This first set was taken around town in East Aurora, NY, which is so quaint and cute. Even though we had to change plans at last minute (oh, mother nature), this urban setting was a perfect substitute to the winter wonderland we originally had planned.

    Today is Boo’s birthday! 

    Booboo - thanks for telling me you like my hair anyway, even though I know you hate the fact that I keep cutting it short. And thanks for driving around for 40 minutes to find that field of sunflowers we passed earlier in the day, just so I could take a few photos. And for being in the photos with me. I know you hate that, too.You have to admit, though - it was worth it. Wasn’t it? For all of that, I’ll have to make you some special birthday blondie bars. Or maybe cupcakes. Or maybe both :) 

    Happy birthday, Boo!

  5. The North End-er

    northend1

    It’s April, you guys! And I’ve officially sworn off tights. Even if the breeze still gives my bare legs goosebumps. 

    Boo and I took full advantage of the nicer weather this weekend. We walked up and down the streets of the North End, grabbed Italian for lunch (and canollis for snack), sat by the waterfront and watched the sailboats, packed some sandwiches and headed to the park, chased around some ducks and geese, and had a few cups of Starbucks. Phew, that was a lot. But I’m really excited to have a whole lot more weekends like this one this spring and summer. Fo realz. 

    How was your weekend?

    Happy Wednesday. Boo and I took these photos last weekend, on a perfect Sunday afternoon. If only every day could be like this one. So, here’s a little something getting me through the rest of the week, and hopefully it will help you!

    Weekends are for…..

    »sleeping in

    »eggs benny 

    »messy hair

    »comfy sweatshirts

    »tea in your favorite mug

    »catching up with your DVR

    »ignoring the cleaning and projects you have to do, and instead having an impromptu photoshoot with you boo. I mean, right?!

    …. And that is what I have to look forward to. What are you looking forward to for the weekend?
