Thankful



....for these families (and all of their members - many of which aren't pictured). It's been an amazing few days spending quality time with our families! We are so so blessed. Happy Thanksgiving!

As I got ready to blog my most recent portrait session with little Rollins, I realized that I never blogged her adorable nursery and newborn session (I'm just a tad behind). I just got done editing her 3 month (really almost 4 month) session, but I have to show you her beautiful nursery first! Then, I will share her newborn pictures, and THEN I will blog her most recent session. She's just too darn cute to leave off of the blog.  I am so sad that these didn't get done in proper time. She is growing like a weed, so I have to catch up quick! 

Without further ado, Rollins' sweet pink and gray nursery! (It's one of the prettiest little rooms I've ever seen).

I like to switch out a few accessories in our home with each changing season.  Just a few key places get a little spruce, the main spot - our mantle. Our fireplace is hands down my favorite part about our home. If you asked Alan, he would probably agree. It's a great focal point and I especially love decorating our mantle. The beautiful canvas of the Brooklyn Bridge is from our wedding trip to New York City, taken by Lindsi Jones. She joined our wedding photographers on our trip and took some really beautiful photos of the city. The canvas is one of the first pieces I hung in our home (along with some of my favorite wedding photos), and I really love looking at it each day and remembering what an amazing time we had on that trip. No other trip will ever compare.   

I made our "H" wreath really simply by cutting an H out of cardboard, covering it in yarn and shoving it into a vine wreath I had lying around - the easiest project ever! I made the leaf wreath last year and simply hung it on our back door.  Even though it's only a few fall decorations, I think it's just enough to get into the season of Thanksgiving and to welcome our guests at the end of the month.
