Sedona, Arizona

IMG_9294This year, we spent our 4th of July celebrating friends’ wedding in Sedona. It was out first trip to the northern Arizona, and I have to say – it was wonderful and so picturesque.  I will let the photos do the rest of the talking.IMG_9331 IMG_9354 IMG_9410 IMG_9423 IMG_9433 IMG_9517 IMG_9525 IMG_9534

Weekend of celebrations

May started off with two special celebrations. We flew back to Michigan to celebrate Chris’s Granny’s 90th birthday. It was wonderful to gather and honor a special lady. To many more healthy years Else!

Next day we’re honored with a beautiful baby shower for our baby girl. We feel so incredibly grateful for our family and friends who helped us prepare for the arrival of our first child.  IMG_8439 IMG_8428 IMG_8517IMG_8446 IMG_8474 IMG_8538 IMG_8547IMG_8424

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and moms-to-be. I feel very lucky to have so many amazing mothers around me as I prepare to become one in a few months.
