The Creative Family:How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections.

I just got this new book & have been busy reading up on projects to do with Marcus-to-be when he is old enough to "do" projects. You don't even need to have kids to do some of this stuff!

Martha's Cookie of the Day

Crunchy Chocolate Treats! Yum.

SDI Signs

The other day I spent some time with Sheelah MacKillop, owner of SDI Signs, and her family.  Sheelah was a WREN Women & Co. winner from last year- but schedules did not allow us to connect for her photos shoot. Her kids help her out doing various tasks- and her 6 year old son loves to hang out in the trucks while his mom paints!

Anne Marie & Robert

Anne Marie & Robert enjoyed an April wedding (minus the impending showers!) on Sunday, April 13th.  I have never been to a Catholic wedding that was as humorous and engaging as theirs. The relaxing reception was held at Clay Hill Farm in Ogunquit, Maine.

Grampa was busy fixing everyone's ties!
Bradley (he did an outstanding job!)

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Driscoll!

me & the belly

On Thursday I met up with the very talented Alli Gaulin & she took these amazing photos of me & the belly bump. They are a surprise for my husband- so I'm looking forward to seeing the rest in a few weeks & then can pick some out for his birthday (these were are a sneek peek from her blog!). It was a strange feeling to be on the other side of the lens...but in the end it paid off :0) Thanks Alli!!!!

mr. marcus is getting bigger every day!

Maternity Session

On Thursday (shhh...don't tell my husband) I'm having a maternity session with the very talented Alli Gaulin of Vison Photography in Littleton, NH. I'm starting to panic because I HATE being on the other side of the lens! What was I thinking?!? But I found these photos to be inspiring...so I'm hoping we can pull something like this off... (all these photos are from super cool photographers over at The Image Is Found)

But maybe I'm just looking for an excuse to eat MORE icecream?

Kathleen & Scott

Kathleen & Scott eloped yesterday at the breath-taking Mount View Grand....it was a fabulous day...we woke up to rain...but by the time their quiet ceremony rolled around the skies had cleared. We had access to everything the Mt. View Grand has to offer- so we went to the wine cellar, the bar, the library, the ballroom, and even the movie theater!

Kathleen's adorable flowers were done by the oh-so-talented Emily at FloraLatte
Kathleen before she said her "I do's."
Scott was so excited to see Kathleen he was waving AND taking pictures with his disposable camera!

Congratulations Kathleen & Scott- I had a blast sharing your special day with you!
