so we took a short half-week trip to ohio this past week. and despite it flying by at an absolutely unreasonable rate, we had a fabulous time while we were there with lots of family and photos and grilling and late-night laugh fests. it was a little hard to get back in that car to head back to DC, but i have to admit that it's always nice arrive at our little apartment and try to regain access to our daily routine. it didn't help that LB caught a horrible cold while we were there...nor was it awesome to realize when i got home that my back was in such bad shape. but we are pushing through and pressing on and hoping for a little less snot and pain for tomorrow. because tomorrow we have projects to do and suitcases to unpack...
in the meantime, our trip in photos:
first, a photoshoot with amy in a graveyard with a doll bed, a big gorgeous piece of chocolate and 2 pretty babies that i love so so much:i loved seeing my friend...even just for a couple hours. (you can see a preview of her take on the shoot here):
colorful mustaches...used over and over until it only got old to nathan (but how awesome and out-of-character does he look in that group shot?...FINALLY a little crazy part of me is starting to rub off on him! :D):
a little girl that i adore that in return adores my babies...in fact, she might just be the undisputed leader of the londerpants/gracie-belle fan club:
best hosts/parents ever (and yes, while i do enjoy this photo, i did feel a bit like a creepy peeping tom taking it):
a visit to my grandparents where gracie met them for the first time and i took some keepsake photos for their kids and grandkids:
i just love my family. so so much. but in retrospect i may have taken too many photos...however, you can see even more on my flickr where i'm heading to post them now!
p.s. tomorrow i have a fun butterfly project/photoshoot to share!:)
