Small Girl, Big Ideas

everyone wishes for silver & gold

I really do love the magic of the holidays and how many things happen around this time of year. We happened to fall across the most perfect December day with 50 degree weather for taking some adorable images of my friend Shauna and her family. I had to share this photo - there are tons of great ones, but I really love her daughter peeking in from the corner over there. It's adorable.

I have taken photos in this location many times before, but apparently they have something special going on for Christmas which rendered the park more crowded than ever, but still perfect for photos.

And I'm totally obsessed with this little k necklace I got from Turtle Love Co.. The font and how adorably tiny it is just makes this the kind of necklace you never take off. It's one of the few that doesn't get to me when I work out and is small enough to just rest there without being cumbersome. Plus, it's sterling silver, which means I can wear it in the shower and not fear that it will stain my skin with cheap gold plating or something.
