Memories of my Dad

Today is my Dad's 51st birthday! I called him bright and early this morning to wish him a happy day, but because I'm a good daughter I spared him from any singing. For now. Last year on his 50th birthday, my lovely stepmom threw him a huge surprise party! All of his friends and family came out and we had so much fun eating, and laughing, and telling stories of all the silly things my Dad has done in his life. It was a perfect day. Prior to this event, I spent a lot of time emailing and calling everyone to secretly send me photos of my Dad and write a short memory they have of him. Thanks to some inspiration from Inchmark, I collected them all in a cute little 50 page book that everyone signed at the party.

This memory book was a huge hit! My Dad, showing a strong sentimental side in his old age, loves it and I know has flipped through it numerous times since. It makes me smile knowing that he has touched so many people in so many different ways. As ornery as he is, I know he is a great man with a huge heart and I admire and love that about him every day. Happy Birthday to the best Dad ever!

Caroon Christmas

The Caroon family is one of my absolute favorites to work with! Sweet Sydney and her Mama are such a pleasure and always so much fun! Mrs. C has such a creative eye and a love of bright colors. This past Christmas they signed up for the Holiday Festive Mini-Shoot with beth marie photography. Sydney's photos turned out so cute and when it was time for me to design a Holiday card, the Caroon family had actually fallen in love with the Holiday flyer I made for the event and requested something similar. So perfect! The colors and design went lovely with Sydney's new photos and I couldn't be happier with the result. Thanks so much again ladies!!

Brighton & Kurt were married this November at Post Oak Lodge. I love the deep reds and purples that Brighton chose for her wedding! It was such a pleasure meeting and working with Brighton and her father who is a graphic designer in California. It was great hearing his input and praise. Thanks Brighton and Kurt for letting me be a part of your special day!
