Yes, I'm still alive!! Gosh things have been incredibly busy!! As you know, we are moving from South Carolina to Phoenix, Arizona. My husband started his job two weeks ago in AZ so the week before that we were in Disney World kind of as a good-bye to the south and some fun kid-focused good times. Gosh, our kids were in heaven!! Tyler and Brielle agreed that their favorite ride was 'Thunder Mountain' - yeah a big'ole roller coaster. I was shocked first that Brielle was tall enough to go on the ride and that she fell in love with it! We have video of each of them on the ride screaming with excitement. Guess how many times we rode Thunder Mountain.....10 TIMES during our visit. Anyway, I could go on and on about the kids excitement over everything they saw but I won't bore you with that ;-) Two days after we got home we left for Arizona to check out area while Jeff started his new job. What a busy busy busy week and a half! I must've seen over 100 homes! I got a feel for the area since each day was packed with research and exploring, the weather was perfect for it!! It got me excited for the desert sunsets and the cool photos that I'll be able to capture once I'm there. We were so busy I didn't touch my camera once (I was going through withdraws, I'm not used to going more than a couple of days without photographing).
Anyway, while we were away we got news that an offer came in on our house!! We were shocked since it's only been on the market 3 weeks! So now it's under contract! I know the deal can still fall through so I'm not celebrating until the deal is done ;-) We're excited but that means we'll be moving sooner than we anticipated. We have a close date of April 15th - yikes! I'm not mentally ready and that means Tyler won't be here for his 5K graduation (I think I'm more upset by that than he is) :( But I'm not complaining - I'm just thrilled we won't have the stress of two house payments!! With a close date so soon, I've had to cancel many Spring sessions which I feel bad about but I do plan on coming back to Florence once a year for sessions and of course to see my friends here in the South :) More details to come in later posts.
Okay onto my original post...Michelle, designer and owner of Oh So Sassy, just came out with her Spring collection. And I love it!! It's fresh and colorful! I love the sleeves and the sash/belt that she incorporated in her designs coupled with her fun fabrics. Briella liked them too and didn't want to take her 'pretty dress' off before our spaghetti dinner after our photo shoot, but I feared orange sauce staining the front so I convinced her to let me take it off until she was done with dinner. Thankfully she was content with that plan and ate her dinner in just her leg warmers and underwear ;-) After dinner the first thing she did was grab the dress and put it on and went running to get her 'princess shoes'. I'll miss these days ...I know my baby is growing up so fast so I'm savoring these moments. Anyway check out newest collection at Oh So Sassy and upon purchase, if you enter the code 'karamay' in the comments to the seller, she will give you 15% off one item by giving a refund!! Thanks Michelle!!
Olivia dress below - love the punch of yellow with the black and white.
Madison dress: fun, funky patterns. The box pleat on the skirt portion is a great touch.
Eva dress: fresh spring colors and again I love that box pleat at the skirt line.
