Happy 1st Birthday

Dear Jayce,

I can't believe you are officially a toddler. I will always remember the first moment I laid my eyes on your sweet face and whispered to you “Welcome home baby. We've waited so long to meet you”.  You were perfect in every way. From that moment I knew you’ll always have my unconditional love.  

The first month of motherhood was an adventure learning to change diaper, figuring out how to breastfeed you and trying to function with just 3-4 hours of sleep. I remember the first time I had to change your diaper without daddy and it was on backward. I laughed so hard when I found out. The first time I had to take you to your doctor’s appointment by myself and I couldn’t open the stroller but was too embarrassed to ask for help. I ended up carrying you inside.

This first year was exhausting yet so rewarding. Before you came into our lives, there was nothing that can wake me up in the wee hours of the night. Now a little movement from you and I would jump out of my bed to run to you. I remember the first time you slept through the night, I woke up multiple times to check on you. 

You've brought so much love and joy into our lives. You make everything in my life more meaningful. I never knew how much I can love until I met you.  Always know that you are also surrounded by so many people that love you. Daddy and I will always be here to guide and support you. We love you so very much, Jayce! Happy first birthday my love!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Cold-Shoulder Chambray Dress

We took these photos on our way to our very first family vacation in June. Stay tuned for those vacation photos. I’ve been wanting to visit the Point Defiance Rose Garden for some time now but didn’t want to drive an hour to get there. This trip was the perfect time to stop by since it was on the way. The rose garden is beautiful. It’s a perfect place for photos. I highly recommend visiting it. It’s located by the Point Defiance zoo so you can combine your visit to the garden with the zoo. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the zoo so we’re definitely coming back to the visit it and check out the garden again.

Summer is in full swing in Seattle. It hasn’t rained for over 51 days now, crazy right? We broke the record. I’m definitely not complaining about it. This beautiful summer weather is perfect for wearing dresses. Dresses are my favorite fashion staple. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to style them. Plus they give you the instant feminine look. This cold-shoulder chambray dress is so sweet and adorable. I love the beautiful silhouette of this dress.The ruffle overlay is just so pretty. The tiered skirt with ruffled hem gives it a feminine feel to this dress. I’m wearing an extra small in petite. It’s currently on sale for under $27.00. This chambray version is sold out but you can get it in floral prints and black.

How gorgeous are these peonies in my bag? They’re from my garden. They were in full bloomed when we left for our vacation. It was a hot weekend so by the time we returned they were pretty much done. I wish the peony season lasts all summer long.

Thank you so much for visiting!
