Summer Snapshots:

Happy Friday!
I hope everyone has enjoyed their week!

I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by and that we are in the last weekend of August! With School back in session and September/Fall on the horizon summer is coming to a close. We have stayed really busy trying to pass the time in between daddy being home and gone. All the time in the pool, swimming, running through the sprinkler, playing the backyard, enjoying the summer thunderstorms, going to the beach, the zoo, and birthday celebrations for CharliMyself, and Crew. We have been spending as much time with family and friends as we can and it has truly been the best!

We are definitely sad to say goodbye to Summer...


Even more so now that our plans for our last Summer Vacation to the Keys is being disrupted by this Tropical Storm/Hurricane :(. We have had this trip planned for a while and have really been looking forward to it, especially since it would be our last trip with daddy before having to say goodbye to him yet again... Sigh... We are still holding out hope but will know more in the coming days!

So as I sit here and sulk, you can enjoy some unseen Summer Snapshots...



























I hope everyone has a fabulous last weekend of August!

Evite: Backyard BBQ:

Happy Wednesday friends!
I hope everyones week has started out great! 

Before August gets away from me I wanted to share one last thing in regards to Crew's First Birthday. Evite fell in love with his party that I threw and has now featured it on their website. I feel so honored that others love my decorating, styling, and party planning just as much I do! 
You can check out Crew's Backyard BBQ Here!
Thank you again Evite for all the love!

Charli's First Day of Preschool:


Today was Charli's first day of 3 year old Preschool at her new school! It was this exact time last year that we were sending her off for the very first time ever to a School, and though she didn't get to experience a full school year (we had to say Goodbye to Grace Episcopal just 3 months after starting due to our move), I think it was a great practice run to what was to come!

 I can't tell you how excited we are for not only everything our little girl will learn and do but that she gets to start the school year as well as finish it!  Something that most people take for granted. We absolutely love the school that she is attending (it is the Preschool I always said I wanted my children to attend when I was growing up) and it is truly a blessing that she was accepted! 

I can't even begin to describe Charli's excitement this morning! She could not wait to see her teachers and friends! Her teacher got her out of the car, Charli  took her hand, gave me a quick little smile, and never looked back...
Don't grow up too fast little one.


The full report upon pick up was that "it was a vewy good day mommy"!
We couldn't be happier and can't wait to watch her excel! 
Happy First Day of School Charli Adele!


Here is a look at Charli on her first day last year and this year:



Happy Monday and Happy Back to School!
