“Oooh, Paige! He’s cute!”

 

She sat on the shaggy carpet in front of me, flipping through a TRAVEL+LEISURE magazine, as I blew the hairdryer across her wet hair. Then we both started singing Try by Colbie Caillat.

 

It was just the day before that I picked her up from gymnastics. “Can we play that song, you know, that one song we both like!” She listened intently to the lyrics as she sang along, “what does sexy mean?” As I explained the lyrics to her, she wrinkled her nose, trying to understand.

 

One moment she’s wearing dresses and asking for my bright red lipstick and the next she’s out climbing trees and swimming underwater with her eyes wide open. At six years old, Madison is so full of spunk and life with an imagination that runs wild.

 

…and an eye for the cute guys.

“It was her eyes,” Isaac said, as the three of us walked through Balboa Park in San Diego, “I fell in love with her eyes, they’re like sapphires.” 

 

Isaac and Laurel said “i do” this summer in California and moved off to Chicago to start their new adventure as Mr. + Mrs. Apodaca.

 

Incredibly excited for the two of them!

“Walter! Walter!” She called to the boy walking across the UNC campus with a tennis rack in his hand. He turned around, to see this little asian girl waving him down.

 

Walking over with a big smile, she said, “Hi Walter! Remember me, from soccer?” His mind racing, he still could not recall who this cute girl was, “Oh yeah, hi!” But she quickly caught on, “You don’t remember me, do you? It’s Connie, we played soccer together.” They chatted for a little and agreed to meet up for a game of tennis soon.

 

The game of tennis went well and shortly after was followed by a dinner date, which was followed by several more dinner dates, good laughs, and eventually, a diamond ring.

The wind blew our hair in every direction as we cruised down the road in a yellow jeep. Pushing the clutch in and moving into third gear, the jeep bounced as giggles could be heard coming from the back seat.

 

 

“It’s a girl party!” Madison declared, clapping her hands with excitement. Ok, ok, I’ll admit, I was just excited! Swimsuit, windblown hair, and a yellow jeep. Da life!

 

 

Loving these sun and laughter filled days spent with my niece. And of course, I’ll never turn down an opportunity to jump in the water with the SPL underwater housing!

THE SECRET BEHIND MY UNDERWATER PHOTOS and garrett + melanie | CONCORD NEW HAMPSHIRE WEDDING

“He looked like he needed a place to sit, so I told him he could sit by us.” That was 5 years ago.

 

Cara was my neighbor when we were 6 year old girls living in Chicago, both the 5th of 8 kids. As military life has it, we parted ways when our families moved to separate States. That is, until good ol’ Facebook connected us again.

 

“I wasn’t even looking for a college yet. My friend wanted me to check out Liberty University with her, so I went along,” Cara recalls. When Dan walked into the classroom Cara and her friend were sitting in, he immediately caught her eye, “I thought, oh he’s cute!” As any best friend would do, Cara’s friend got onto Cara’s Facebook and not only friend requested Dan – but messaged him for her too – without Cara knowing. The Facebook messages progressed into texting and phone calls. Dan realized he liked this girl, a lot, so he put a ring on it!

 

Avid travelers, one of Cara + Dan’s favorite activities to do is road trip together. Including Niagra falls and cross country trips to meet each other’s family. Oh, and they love ice cream so, of course, we wrapped up the session with something sweet from Kilwins in downtown Wilmington.
