My Girl


Last month my Maddie turned 18 and had her senior pictures taken on her birthday.  We had our lovely photographer take a few special birthday shots.  It was a lot of fun!  When the pictures arrived on Friday we were overjoyed with the results.


I'm glad that I was able to purchase the CD with all of the photos because we are having a hard time choosing our favorites.  This one stands out for me.  I love how you just see a subtle blur of the vintage quilt she is sitting on.  It was cool that day and at the last minute I grabbed a sweater of mine for her. It turned out to be a good choice.


This Bible is her Dad's from when he was in high school.  I'm going to frame this one for him as a surprise.  


We also took a few shots of her in a local vineyard with her guitar.  It was a day I won't soon forget. It's so hard to believe she's 18.  


This sign went up over the weekend.  There has been so much going on and I haven't been on my blog a lot.  In the last two weeks I have finished the weddings at the farm, moved my husband to a new town to start his new job, packed up quite a bit of my home and got it ready to go on the market, everyone in our house got sick and my niece got married over the weekend.  Today I finally feel like I might have stepped off the hamster wheel and can get back to doing those things I love (just as soon as I stop coughing!)  When it rains, it pours!  It's been doing a lot of that here too these past few days!

Smiles,

  1. Maddie is beautiful..lovely pictures! I hope your house sells fast and you can all be together again in the new town. It's hard when the family is split up.

  12. Your daughter is beautiful, Renee. She sure looks like her Mama.
    Her senior pictures are precious keepsakes. I love that they don't all have to be the same anymore.
    You have had a lot on your plate. Glad you are getting over that nasty cold. It is work getting a house ready for sale, I know.
    Hope everything goes as you want it too.
    I know you're busy, but if you get a minute, check out my blog. I finally got a table topper made from the Table Graces and Thankgiving fabric you gifted me with 2 years ago.
    Happy Birthday to Maddie.
