Best Weekend

 We had a really great weekend.  I have been feeling in a funk lately and not myself, I think it was just being sick/allergies combined with Elle not sleeping well, and long work days for Russ.  BUT this weekend cured it all.  Saturday we went to Jordan Lake for a picnic and it was the perfect weather, that night I got to go out with some sweet friends to a Greek restaurant downtown and listen to live music, eat amazing Greek food, and have the belly dancer put her sword on my head...haha then today we went to Duke Gardens which have to be the prettiest gardens ever, perfect weather and perfect lighting (haha the photographer in me).  All in all I never want it to end!! 
Hope you all had a great weekend as well :)

Mel and Jari Maternity Pictures

 I forgot to blog these pictures from back in March, I got to take these sweet pictures when I went home to visit last month! I used to work with Mel about 5 years ago, and have always loved talking with her.  I got to take these maternity pictures at their home, and I am obsessed with this babies chevron wall! Mel was absolutely glowing, and I can't wait for them to be parents in May. Thanks for letting me take your pictures guys :)

Happy Easter!

 Happy Easter! Church is always super early for us on Sunday's and so we usually struggle getting out the door early enough! Today though we actually made it out of the door at 8 am and got a great parking spot and seats.  The Easter bunny also made it early to our house and Charlotte was beyond excited to eat her candy.  After church we came back and just hung out at home, had early naps, and then went over to our friends for lunch and another egg hunt.  It was the most beautiful day, and I feel so thankful for the new friends we have made here.  They have made it feel so much more like home! 
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
