Flower Girl

Flower Girl

We officially moved into our new home and I couldn’t be more in love with our new house and neighborhood! Even though things have been rather hectic, my assistant Allison and I, still managed to explore. We went to a nearby forest preserve to shoot and I’m absolutely smitten how these pictures turned out!

Forest Preserves are perfect backdrops for a photo shoot. I was sitting in the peaceful wildflower meadow and I couldn’t have been more in awe. It seems the older I get the more I’m drawn to nature vs the city. It’s funny because I always considered myself a city girl—but who can really resist a wildflower meadow?! So, for today’s post I’m getting my inner flower girl on—taking one step at a step. Learning to worry less and simply live in the moment.

As always, thanks so much for stopping & have a fabulous Monday!

PS: We are currently designing the inside of our home—I cannot wait to show you some progress!

    Great pictures as usual, dear V., and you look really gorgeous! I loved the place, and yes, I agree with you – I am a very urban person, but lately (or kind of 2 years ago), I started loving places with green:) So nice that you moved and you are loving the new house and neighborhood, and I am also eager to see the progress; I know it will be all of excellent taste! You always have exquisite taste for everything! Hope you are having a great time with the boys, dear V., and enjoying a nice week! Hugs and kisses!

    Love this summery mood in the pictures! <3 I also found myself loving to be in nature more and more, whereas I have always thought I preferred urban settings… becoming an adult is weird haha! 🙂 Thanks for sharing this cute look!
