on my trip home (the short version)...

freckles.

My trip "home" was absolutely wonderful. And filled with many wonderful things. Most notably: lovely little sisters, freckles and photo shoots...

the engagement.

proposals, and adorable engagement photos...

brothers, at their best.

my husband and his brothers being, well, perfectly normal...

all smiles.

cheesy grins after days spend in the sun...

by the beach.

standing around, feeling quite impressed with my husband's rock-skipping abilities...

the sunset.

a sunset that was almost unreal...

fireworks.

and, naturally, a bunch of family, friends and fireworks.

More stories/photos/shenanigans to come! I hope everyone had an incredibly wonderful holiday weekend!

  1. You have an uncanny ability to capture people in real "moments" I like that. Each of these pictures has a load of the subject's personality. Talent, you haz it.
