look out will and kate. there are new dukes in town.

one time my best friend got married and it was the best day of my life. true story.
waiting patiently for the newlyweds.
this was a fun moment. they came out looking all celestial and happy and beautiful and then i started to cry like a child and then the photographer decided that was great and got up in my grill taking pictures of my tears. super.
 got the gang back together. i swear i have at least two other versions of this picture.
 snagged the beautiful bride for a quick pic.
 we had so much fun dancing, eating, and catching up. so many sweet moments throughout the day. i am so happy for the dukes and i can’t wait for the memories we’ll make in this next stage of life!

justin would be proud.

for my niece’s third birthday, she wanted a purple party. and a purple party is what she got.
don’t worry, there was justin beiber involved.
representing in my purple hat.
 even levi participated in the purple festivities.
 candle blowing is a family affair.
happy birthday sweet girl.

last week.

took mark on a walk in the beautiful warm sun. and threw some rocks.
bought some sweet new running kicks. soooo excited.
found myself watching 30 rock. by myself. in some boys’ house. how does this happen?
