Happiest of Birthdays to our precious Margaux Juliette! We loved celebrating you on your first birthday! Here are some pictures of the sweet birthday girl and our family from her party! See this post for more party details!
Our sweet friend Jeannie, who runs an awesome blog Amongst Stringfields (check it out!), is an incredible photographer and did such an amazing job with Margaux's Smash Cake photos!
We planned to wait until Margaux's first birthday to let her taste cake, but when we were in London at Peggy Porschen Cakes, we felt it was wrong to deny her a taste, so she got a bite a few weeks early, but believe it or not, she spit it right out. (Crazy, I know!) So we tried again at her cake smash (a week before...
Margaux's first birthday has come and gone and I'm so happy we have these beautiful photos to remember the day by! We had so much fun with friends and family and of course our favorite little birthday girl! We are so thankful and appreciative to everyone that helped make this day a magical one! See this post for more pictures of the birthday girl on her big day!
This event took hours of DIY crafting and tons of help (from my awesome family) to put together, but it turned out better than we could...
On Mother's Day, we had the special privilege of dedicating Margaux to the Lord at the church we grew up in, with the pastor who married Mike and I, and who also baptized me when I was a little girl. What a blessing she has been in our lives, and we are so honored the Lord chose us to be her parents! After the church service, we enjoyed celebrating with family!
Fun fact, my mom saved my christening outfit from when I was 3 months, and we used it for Margaux's dedication.
I love these baby Louis ghost chairs (from Amazon!), and the sweet little ray of sunshine sitting on one. Secret: Her daddy was "spotting" her when I took these pictures - can you tell by the way she looks at him off to the side?
We hired a local photographer while in Copenhagen through TripShooter and were so happy to get these family photos in such a beautiful location! We've used Trip Shooter in the past in Amsterdam and London, and it's super easy, fast, and you get the pictures in just a few days. Use code SMILEAGAIN for 10% off!
We walked around in the gorgeous area of Nyhavn in Copenhagen and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine, warm weather, and visiting with our photographer!
Dearest Daughter, I am forever grateful that God destined me to be your mother. What a blessing you are in every single way. My whole life I felt motherhood was my calling and I have cherished every second with you since the moment I found out I was pregnant. You are my precious, darling, angel and I love you with a fierce, unconditional love.
I am so blessed to have a truly wonderful mother and amazing mother-in-law. I'm thankful to God, my husband, and Margaux for mak...
Having a baby is a true joy and Margaux has been nothing but a pure blessing. Our lives were forever changed on September 22nd, 2017 when she entered the world and we grow more and more in love with each passing day! We are continually praising the Lord for a healthy and beautiful little girl and are so thankful that we have become parents to this precious baby! Nothing can truly prepare you for the journey of parenthood, and the last few weeks have been an amazing and humbling experience. I...
One day to go until Margaux Juliette arrives!!! Mike and I have been immeasurably blessed in life, marriage, and throughout this pregnancy journey, and we pray for a smooth and healthy delivery tomorrow and a healthy, happy baby to love and raise! We trust completely in God's perfect will and are so thankful He allowed us to experience this sweet time and pregnancy together! Thank you Veronica Cook for capturing this moment in life for us!
