Father’s Day and a First Birthday

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, this weekend was Father’s Day. It was also Violet‘s 1st birthday. Often, when I write these posts, I wonder if when I have kids, I’ll want to take a million pictures of them or if I’ll be burned out by taking so many of my niece and nephew.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad! (Hi Liam!).

Violet gets into everything now. But, she’s cute so it’s cool.

Liam, “Aunt Julie, take a picture of me!” Um, of course! Any chance to get a picture of Liam without a funny/weird/scary face is welcome.

Violet looks excited/terrified in this picture. She loved her cake.


We went for an ice cream cake this time around. Hey, with a thousand birthdays + Father’s Day in two weeks, we had to mix it up.

This is the closest I can get to a cute picture with the both of them. They look so much alike!

THIS IS THE BEST PICTURE OF VIOLET EVER. Melanie bought a purse this week, and found this smaller version inside. It instantly became Violet’s purse and we tried so hard to get a picture of her with it. She wanted nothing to do with it. That was until we randomly shot this gem… She looks like she’s going shopping! Our little fashionista!

Awwwwww :-)

Violet enjoyed her 1-year old cards :-) That’s about where her attention span is these days.


Tomorrow night, Todd and I are flying to Florida for some fun in the sun and to visit some of his friends and family. I cannot wait. Also, I am trying so desperately to get him to take me here. PLEASE, TODD.

Today was my last day of work, but I may have to go in tomorrow to wrap up more things (like all the papers flying around my office). Sigh. Either way, I’m considering tomorrow my first day of vacation. I have about 6-weeks off and then I’ll go back in early August right after my birthday (28! Eek!).

I have lots of fun things planned this summer. Florida is next week and then I may be going to St. Louis and Chicago in early July. (Remember my Chicago trip last July?). Plus Michigan and Boston in August. Busy, busy, yet so awesome.

Don’t fret though (ha, like you were), I have some posts scheduled + some sweet guest bloggers + I may be mobile blogging. Oh trust me, it will be good.

Hugs to youuuuu!
