Mornings in Maine.

Good morning! I am thoroughly enjoying this three-day weekend. I've done exactly what I set out to do: slept in, drank coffee while wearing pjs, made a party decorations run, created invites/favor bags/itineraries. And I still have a full day left. Phenomenal.

Over Christmas break, I was able to get home to Maine for a couple weeks to spend some time with my family. Though I was super sick for 48 hours (seriously, who wasn't sick?? It's definitely been going around), I still got to get in plenty of baby snuggles. And of course, I had to take lots of pictures. Alexia, my niece, is changing so much. At five months, each day she is learning something new. 

One of my absolute favorite parts of spending time at home is the time I get to spend at my sister's house. Over there, each morning, I wake up and make my way from the guest room to my sister's bedroom, where she is usually already up. Still in my pajamas, I crawl into bed next to her and we sit for (sometimes) hours. Talking, playing with the baby, watching shows on the iPad. And through it all, I take pictures. I love being able to capture these little moments of my times with my sister and my niece. I know in a few years, these pictures will be such treasures as Alexia grows and changes. Looking at them now, just a few weeks later, I'm already nostalgic. And I'm just the aunt.

I miss that tiny little face.

I am so thankful for all the time I spend with this tiny girl and for my sister allowing me to constantly snap pictures.

I also want to share some excellent reads on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


  1. You're such a good auntie :) And that baby girl is GORGEOUS!

  2. Can I just say, the foot picture is pure genius. Love them all, but especially that one.
