She is very much into anything with color, all the accessories, and anything that sparkles or has glitter on it! I recently…

35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

MY adoption story.
