Treasure Chest

Once a year for the past five years our family has received one of the greatest gifts a family can ever receive...

My treasure friend, Lauren, has a gift with photography, and I just so happen to LOVE her gift!!
She captures my treasures like no one else I know. Her and I have this heart connection through loss... We both lost parents at an early age. And a few years back she reminded me of what a blessing it will be for my treasures to always have pictures with their Mama. And she's so right. I truly the cherish the photos that I have with my own Mama. So last year and this year I jumped into the photo shoot.
I can't tell you how grateful I am for this gift of captured memories.

We went to my absolute favorite little hideaway tucked back in the middle of The Ranch, in North County where Joey and I grew up. It was the beginning of Spring and there were flowers blooming EVERYWHERE. It was truly enchanting. Not to mention that the little breakfast cottage there sells the best muffins that have ever passed through these lips!
This year, the kiddos are raw and real... Jeddy's loosing it, and Siah's faking it... And the girls, well, they're just plain beautiful!

Thank you my sweet sweet friend, for blessing me with your time and your talents.
Thank you,
thank you,
thank you.
