Swedish Meatballs, HERE WE COME.

If you know me well you know I have been crazy about IKEA opening here in Cincinnati. I have been following the rumors that started about 2 years ago, and waiting, ever so patiently for this day to come. When we finally saw the press release in August of 2006 that they were coming somewhere in Cincinnati, we were H-A-P-P-Y. (We being myself, my sister, a few close friends, and THOUSANDS of Ohioians…Don’t include Brett in that WE..he thinks I have gone off the deep end, and he’s a little scared.) Then, when they announced that it would be 10 minutes from my house, (the news lady actually said that) BONUS!

You see, I was one, like MANY, MANY others, that took the long trek to get to the nearest store and stock up about once a year. I would grab a friend, (usually a sister or 2) and we would head to the IKEA near Chicago (which by the way is the BEST around). Now why would I drive all that way to visit one single store?? Well, just go have a little visit, plan on it taking a while.

So, for the past months we have been driving by and watching the growth and progress being made to the big,beautiful, royal blue and yellow building, as my kids all scream in unison, “Hi IKEA!”

It opens in 1 month. SEE YOU THERE:)

3 pals. {a just-for-fun session}

This is a session that I was unable to post from the Fall because we were so busy, and I never got a chance to get it up on the blog. But I love these photos so I thought now would be a great time to share them with you all. We did this session on one of those abnormally WARM days, when my son and daughter were out playing with one of their best pals. This “session” was about 10 minutes long, but I really liked some of the photos. You may recall having seen some on the website…(Or in the banner above!)

Family.

I thought this was just about the cutest…little drawings of our family, done by my little artistic daughter. I love how we all have our winter gear on…I don’t, however, love how I look pregnant. Not cool Priya! I know you want a sister but that’s just not cool.

Fun in the City {A Lifestlye Session}

***WARNING!!! THIS POST CONTAIN MANY, MANY, PHOTOS. TOOO MANY MOMENTS I WANTED TO SHARE, I JUST COULDN’T DECIDE***

What a family. What fun we had. Seriously, what fun WE had. We decided on an urban setting for this family’s lifestyle session. This family is fun, cool, and contemporary, so something different was in order. Did I mention we had fun?

Ok, so without further ado, let me introduce you to this family.
