This is one of my favorite pictures with my little girl, when she was a little girl.
This is her now. She is officially eight-years-old. I can hardly believe it.
This Saturday, we are bringing in grandmas and grandpas and cousins and friends from all around, and she will be getting baptized. I’ve been busy prepping details for the day (including a brunch menu for after, these glazed lemon scones are sounding pretty good.)
I stenciled her silhouette on a kraft moleskine to use as a guest book, with plenty of blank pages for special messages, and we splurged on this crew cuts dress. It is a little summery for right now but I couldn’t help myself, I love it. She and I are long overdue for a girls shoe shopping trip, but ran out of time, so we improvised with a pair of basic flats with a set of hair pins clipped on. We’re both very satisfied.
I will probably be out for a couple days, because following the big baptism to-do, we’ll be throwing a girly birthday bash for her a few days later. But I’ll be back next week with the scoop. See you then, and have a lovely weekend!
