Summer has happened and this means I’m getting a little behind in my blogging.  I met up with this family back in June.  Their sweet baby girl had the biggest dark eyes and cutest little smiles.  I just fell in love with her!  And well, boys will be boys of course.  They were VERY interested in picking up all the bugs they could find.  As I got them all together for a family photo I noticed both boys still had bugs in their hands.  (One about to go around mom’s shoulder!)  I quickly had to get that out of the way, as I’m sure mom would not appreciate the extra family member in her portrait.  Aside from the bugs – it was an absolutely beautiful day, and I had an awesome time!  Smile

I’m always up for a new challenge, and was very excited one of my good friends asked me to design a logo for her business.  And trust me, only a good friend will pay you in cheese – seriously!  Winking smile

She has worked at the same flower shop for YEARS, and finally Trish and her hubby bought the business a couple years ago.  They have now decided to drop the chain and do it on their own with a brand new name: THE BLOOM BOX.  This opens up endless possibilities that they were never able to pursue before.  I am SO excited to see what they will be up to now!

I was lucky enough to be visiting my hometown of Brandon, Manitoba when the sign went up on the front of the flower shop.  I must say, EXTREMELY cool to see something I made so BIG!

And the delivery van was all dressed up too!

Gotta love this rebellious, uncooperative stage.  Well, at least I HOPE it’s a stage!  It’s like pulling teeth to try to get my son to agree to let me take his photo.  (Usually it’s the back of his head I get.)  But since everyone went crazy over the adorable photos of his sister, I think he was a little jealous.  So that, coupled with a chance to ride the city bus somewhere cool…he agreed.

Although trying to get him on his own was another challenge.  Lil’ sis kept jumping in and trying to hog the spotlight!  I finally got her to help me by telling jokes.  I don’t know who was laughing more!  (If you know what 4 year old jokes are like.)

I MAY be a little biased….but there are so many cute ones, I really have no idea what I’m going to do with them all!  But believe me, they will not sit on my computer.  I always make a point of printing for my photo albums, and then some definitely go in frames.  Open-mouthed smile

a big deal
