I can’t say that I ever imagined I would have a daughter who wanted to dance competitively. Though it has been interesting to see her have a love of music and movement soul deep that I also carry.
Blair began her dance journey last year starting with all beginning classes and quickly fell in love with it. By the end of her first season she was begging to try out for the competitive team. We took the plunge and what a fun little season she’s had. She is already looking forward to next year and challenging herself to learn new things.
Her brave persistent spirit is quite inspiring.
I received the snarkiest comment about the kids costumes. “Wondering why the outfits are so tiny,” “Do they get point for having abs?” Made me laugh! Girls of all sizes can be dancers. None of their costumes are inappropriate. They are part of the showmanship of each dance number. While some cover more skin, some costumes do not. Allowing the technique to be showcased. I can’t tell you how proud I am of Blair and her efforts to learn, grow and challenge herself.
Looking forward to seeing where her love of dance takes her.
Thank you so much to those of you who have supported her with your sweet encouraging comments and for coming to her events!
It was a treat to recently be able to take Senior Photos for a high school friend of mine’s daughter. It’s crazy to think her oldest is going to be graduating in a few short weeks. The world at her fingertips as she begins a new chapter of her life.
Here is a peek at a few photos we got.
First borns are special. They break us in and we experience everything as a parent, for the first time with our oldest children. My guy seems to be growing super fast these days. Not looking like a baby any more! All grown up and so much fun!
I usually do birthday photos. This year we have been so busy, but back in December I was able to capture this photo of Rhett. It has quickly become a favorite. I love him in his new glasses, they are so very him.
Love you Rhett!
Happy Monday, friends!
With my obvious love of dark walls, I had to go and add one more to our home. This time in our bedroom. If you follow my Instagram, then you’ve seen a peek of the room. Here are a few more photos and one of our newest living room refresh too.
I think the most exciting thing about changing up this room was, that the only things I purchased was the paint and the new lighting. Which was found on Amazon. The hooks used to hang the pendants were curtains hooks from Ikea that I already had. I have to give a shout out to one of my favorite little shops in Tulsa, Jo and June’s. The “World Map” foil print over the desk in the above photo came from there. They have so many great pieces in their shop, including some fabulous rugs! It’s a gem! (It’s at Admiral and Lewis, by Zeigler’s for my Tulsa area friends)
Look at my poor maimed succulent. Jude’s coat sleeve took off about half of him, lol!
In other corners of the room… I pulled over the black from across the room with this black “Eames” chair. I love the contrasting styles of the modern chair with my more romantic lines of my writing desk. Also pulling over the warm wood tones in the mirror and a bit of brass too.
Now if I could just find a rug!!
And finally, a peek at the living room. I stole this dresser from the Twins, who I originally bought it for. Oops! Again, not purchasing anything new, but rearranging what I already own. Thought I did finally find a fiddle leaf fig that has brought a much needed pop of green to the room.
Does spring make you want to refresh too?
