october wedding

with the help of my saintly mama (til was in a bit of a mood this afternoon), i was able to finish the last of the flower girl dresses. i really hope that everyone is happy with the dresses, especially the sweet bride. i can't wait to see them on the girls.




i am finally caught up on all of my orders, giving me a chance to work on some gifts, new fall looks, and matilda's halloween costume!

i have been a busy bee with the fall issue of southern flourish and getting ready for matilda's second birthday this weekend. we've had a series of mini celebrations in lieu of a big party this year. i'm looking forward to not stressing and just taking it all in with the main focus of celebrating matilda. she said "oh mama" so softly tonight when i was singing her to sleep. i asked her if she would sing me a song and she sang in the sweetest, smallest voice, "ABCD, hjfb ABCD." i love that girl.

The dresses look beautiful, and that is so sweet. Isn't it so true that when you are having rough moments with your child, they do something to remind you how precious they are... and I am so glad for that.
