Work has been so busy and I always have plenty to do {thankfully}, but oh how I miss not making this weekly posting! So, here we go!

* I secretly love when my kids get ahold of my phone to take pictures of themselves. It always makes me laugh.

* The delay button on my coffee machine. There are few things better than hopping out of bed and having a cup of a coffee just seconds later. And to think I wasn’t a coffee drinker just a few short years ago….

* FALL. Really, it is my most favorite time of year. My pumpkin candles, decorated house and countless fall magazine covers *almost* make it okay that I’m not going to be seeing any orange and red leaves in person this year. (not really, but I’m trying really hard to convince myself….)

* Soccer season. We’re in the middle of soccer season and I have had an absolute blast coaching both Kyla’s U-8 team and Carter’s U-6 team (of course, with the help of wonderful assistant coaches). It makes my heart smile to see my little ones absolutely loving something I grew up so passionate about.

* My time with the Lord. I love when I’m in a season where I could just spend time in the Word for hours on end. He is teaching me so much about his faithfulness and how he desires me to be a servant who “speaks boldly FOR the Lord” (Acts 14:3). How I long to be a Christ follower who is devoted solely to his purposes for his glory and greatness!

* My wonderful hubby asked me this week if I would go and buy a new living room rug (ours sheds like nothing you’ve ever seen). Yes, you read that right. He must have somehow known it’s the Friends and Family sale at Pottery Barn this week. Double score. Now, if I can somehow find the time to get down to Waterside…

* Last night I got to capture little Alana, who is quickly growing into a precious toddler. In the first picture, she was sweetly showing me her teeth (since I asked her where they were). After letting me snap a few pictures, she asked me “more?” (as in, do I want to see more teeth?), which is the second picture. Isn’t she just adorable?! Oh, and she may look familiar because I got to capture her earlier this year too!

* Pandora, Runkeeper, Pinterest, Instagram…some of my iPhone favorites (besides Facebook and Mail, of course).

Happy Weekend!

    1. I was unaware there was a pottery barn at waterside shops. I must go!
    2. I LOVE those pictures of Alana. Seriously adorable and they capture her litle personality perfectly. You have a gift, Maria!
    3. Looking at these pictures compared to our shoot in January really make me realize how quickly my baby is growing up! Glad I have some amazing photos to remember all of her stages. 🙂
