What a Day!

Yesterday was a full and fun day. I love the flexibility my schedule allows {and then I have to work twice as hard when I get home...}. One of my sweetest friends and I were able to meet up halfway from our homes. She grew up in Iowa and is there for the summer with her hubby. Meet Libby, I am sure I have talked about her before. She also blogs and is a breath of fresh air! She wrote about our story of how we met... make sure to CHECK. IT. OUT!

We talked and talked for over two hours and then met up with this cute baby girl and her super awesome Mama, Beka Boo! They were shopping at the outlet mall just up the highway. How could we not pass up the opportunity?

This is the cutest 8 week old from Iowa. Livia is her name and she is the calmest baby you will ever meet. She just slept in this cute sling while we shopped. I got to hold her and get an awesome arm workout!! What a doll!

What a blessing these women are. It was such a fun treat and surprise for a nice day... the outlets were amazing and at Old Navy everything was 40% already reduced items. We scored some skirts and things for UNDER $3. It was insane!

In the evening... I got to capture such a cute family and a fun 4th of July picnic scene. Here are some sneaks. This is my friend Sarah and her ADORABLE family.....


And I repeat... photography is such a gift. I am so blessed to watch families like this grow. Wow. I am humbled today thinking about it.
