Have I mentioned how much I love dressing up! Well I do! I don’t mind being the only adult at a kids party who dresses in the theme of the party! Lucky for me my friend Darlene is the same & was also in costume at her daughter Bella’s 5th birthday party.
Bella is my precious baby girl! We were there for her birth & intend to be there throughout her life! She's such a special little lady and has brought so much joy to so many lives! There was so much love that was put into planning her party! Darlene & Alex put their creative juices together to throw the perfect cowgirl soiree! Thank God there was no rain!
This clothing line is the cutest idea! Darlene pinned up Bella’s Laundry throughout her 5 years of life, starting with her hospital newborn shirt! Love it!
Can you see Bella?
Bella was having such a good time at her party that it was so hard to get her to stop for a picture…
Howdy Cowboy! Love My lil Godson!
These lil kiddos were so into playing “tug of war”! It was so cute!
My favorite Cowboy!!!
A precious moment between a grandmother & her granddaughter!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
