Ruffles and Roses

Running bridge BLOG

We have had a busy weekend!! We picked up our cousin Eddie on Saturday morning and he is going to be here with us until next Tuesday. Nick and Sarah are so excited........ Nick and Eddie have always enjoyed their special time together each summer, as this is tradition for them to go back and forth for a week at a time.

This year it has been fun to watch Sarah interact with them...... although I am not sure the boys feel the same way:) The minute she wakes up she is asking for Eddie....everytime we sitdown for a meal she screams "I want to sit next to Eddie" He is so patient with her and it is so cute to watch!

I am short on time this morning, but wanted to post these pictures before I get to buried and backed up again.

This pettiskirt and beautiful rose came in the mail last week...... It is actually for one of my photography workshop models to wear in a few weeks, but a certain someone could not wait to slip it on and give it a twirl.

By Thursday night, I finally gave in and let her try it on. As soon as she pulled it on, she squealed with delight and started twirling and running through the house. She smiled from ear to ear and ran in to show Daddy how "beautiful" she looked.

Our girl is growing up so fast..... It is such a bittersweet feeling. She is at such a fun age, and everyday she amazes us with the things she does and says, but at the same time we look at her.......and wonder where our baby girl has gone.

A special note: Thank you Kimberley for your wonderful customer service and for keeping all of our girls looking so stylish and frilly!! If you are looking for tutus, pettiskirts, personalized t-shirts, hats, or hair bling, check out her beautiful boutique by clicking HERE.

Oh my word! Just stunning! I was thinking about that rose this morning and wondering if you liked it. I haven't put in on the blog yet. It is so beautiful in her hair. I love the casualness of these photos and how she is barefoot. Wonderful!

Life with Kaishon said...

I can see how that would be hard to resist. Simply stunning : ).

She is precious! I love the age she is. It is one of my favorites. I miss having a little one in the house so badly. It makes me cry.

I cried this morning when I read what you wrote about getting an excited feeling when you see a new mommy in China. I can't wait for your turn!

Michelle@BornInOurHearts said...

Oh, these are just stunning photos, Lisa!! Truly, you are going to ROCK your workshop in a few weeks. I am so happy for you!!!!

Dita said...

I wish I could have been out there running with her...how I remember being that young...not a care in the world with the sweet smell of summer all around as bare feet touched the ground.

Beautiful shots...those eyes just kill me everytime!

Love Letters To China said...

Lisa these pictures are amazing! Your little one is getting so big. I feel the same way about my two. It makes me sad how quickly they grow up. The pettiskirt and rose look adorable on her. I don't think you'll ever be able to use them for photo shoots.... I think Sarah has staked her claim on them!

Angie said...

These pictures are out of this world! Beautiful!!!!!

Christina said...

I just had to tell you, as I was sitting here coveting your photo location for this post....all of a sudden I heard this familiar music.

I scrolled down and yep, I was right. It was ENYA....and my daughter Emily's FAVORITE song.

Thank you for that.

Denise said...

Ok, I have to get one of these skirts for Maggie for beach pics! These pictures are awesome and show why so many ladies want to come and learn from you next month...love you girl~

Marcene B said...

I love that petti! I just ordered a red one for Brooke but I might have to check these out.

Sarah looks adorable as always and I love the angle on that bridge shot, beautiful!

Jodee Leader said...

Sarah looks sooo grown up in these pictures. I can't believe our sweet girls are going to be four soon. I am afraid to blink!

Love the skirt too!

Holler if you want to chat on the phone one night while Chef Daddy is traveling!

Wanda said...

Oh....cuteness overboard! That rose is so perfect for Sarah. Sooooo sweet on the bridge in her barefeet.

I know what you mean about losing the baby yet marvelling at all the things being learned. Oh, to stop the clock for just a minute - so we can catch our breath.

Went into the site you linked to....oh my....want them all!

Have a great week!
xoxo

Wanda said...

Oh....and I can't wait to photography that same outfit on your model in a few weeks!!! Excitement abounds.
