I love the "sex" caption. Ha!

Elegantly Academic said...

Awww, I just love looking at other people's family photos. Everyone brought a smile to my face. But this made me realise I have never seen your wedding photos?! I think I will stalk your blog now to find them ... :)

Patricia said...

My favourite is the one where the only caption is 'sex'. But seriously, I really enjoyed these. I wish my candid pics were as photogenic, jeez.

Emily said...

Oh my goodness! Love the pictures and the captions. :)

Andrea Dickherber said...

I love it. And by the way, I just checked out your "Dressing for Milestone Moments" in the Washingtonian. I know you've gotten a lot of mixed comments, but I hope you don't take too many of the negative ones to heart. You've got adorable style and anyway, what you wear isn't all that matters. It's fun memories like these that truly count, right? :)

Amanda Brown said...

Love these! So precious, thanks for sharing:D

A penchant for faceplants is exactly why I'm terrified to go skiing... Sledding is good though... Center of gravity is already pretty low, haha.

Loved these photos, what a fun and exciting life you've been blessed with!

Sarah said...

Wow 27 pics? I didn't even think about it. All the pics were so funny and entertaining I just kept looking at the next one!

These are so cute and funny! I love looking at old pictures.

Btw, your hair looks AMAZING dark brown. You look like a brunette bombshell and it makes your eyes and skin glow! You should definitely consider going back to it!

desorden150 said...

I'm sorry I just looked through them again, and you just look so amazing on the one in your honeymoon overlooking the ocean. Your hair! Your skin! To die for!

Kendall said...

You are so cute! I think it's important to look back and be grateful for the special moments you've had. Because life is a collection of those moments. I'm sure your making plenty new ones with your beautiful baby boy. <3
