(growing) family

after my lovely summer baby shower
in little compton
my dear friend amanda
stuck around to snap some family pictures
featuring my 33-week bump
we went to some favorite little compton spots…
town landing beach
(sadly, not a surfing day!)

warren’s point beach club

and then home again

to enjoy sunset
with a sweet serenade
(baby LOVES music!)

amanda, we cannot thank you enough for capturing these sweet moments
of great excitement and anticipation
before our little family becomes three (or four, sorry nellie!)

new neighbors

i’ve been rising before the sun lately
after pretty restless nights 
so i decided to take advantage of cooler, early morning temperatures
to turn on the oven
and make a batch of chocolate chip cookies
Photobucket
as a sweet welcome 
to new neighbors
cookies: adapted from america’s test kitchen recipe using whole wheat flour
canister: target
ribbon: so good ribbon, nyc
card: handmade- include contact info on the backside!
we welcomed newcomers to our street in a similarly sweet way last year to fave reviews…
can’t go wrong with homemade goodness!

showered with love

in late june
the ladies in my life
all gathered in little compton
on a glorious sunday morning
 for a most wonderful party
in honor of this little boy-to-be and me…

the cutest of cupcakes devoured

love and laughter 
filled the day
