a day in the life of April Flowers

Follow us thru the lens of Plum Jam Photography as they capture myself and fellow flower lover Addison setting up a wedding at the Dana Powers Barn from this past September. Yes, I stood on the part of the ladder you’re not supposed to. Yes, we use zip ties, hammers, double stick tape and ugly buckets to haul flowers around in. We also have loads of splinters, gardeners hands and never have a manicure March-November but hey…the flowers are gorgeous right? ;)

Sweet Ellis and her first year.

My daughter, Ellis, turned 1 on 4/6. Time has passed me by as I’ve tried to burn the memories of our first year as a family of three into my mind. I’ve tried to write it all down – journal it all so I won’t forget what she was like as a brand new little babe. So I won’t forget all the firsts she’s accomplished in 1 year. Her first word (doggie), first step (10 months), first teeth (6 months), first foods (4 months), first night at home with us. Tried to write it all down so Josh and I will have something to read years down the road to remember how tired we were, how lost we felt at times and how we stuck together, made the best decisions we knew how and prayed it would all turn out alright.  Tried to write it all down so we could look back and see the small victories+triumphs after all was said and done. Write it all down and remember it all so that one day I can pour it out to Ellis and hopefully she will understand just how deep our love goes. It reaches down to a place I didn’t even knew existed. I feel so excited to explore that place in my heart more as we head into another year with Ellis in our lives. xoxo

In honor of Ellis’s first birthday (and Josh’s 30th!) we had a party to celebrate. Here are some pictures from the day+weekend. We had a great time with many of our friends and family who came to celebrate! We had 16 people and 6 kids stay with us for the weekend and it was so much fun! These photos were taken by my AWESOME+talented long time friend, Jessie Kenney over @ Juneberry Photo. I will treasure them always.
