1 year later – Ada and Mommy

Our little family took a mini-vacation last week to Lake Erie.  We love it there and it’s very special to us.  We even got married there.  This mini-vacation was over our 2 year wedding anniversary.  We were also in Erie for our anniversary last year.  It’s unbelievable what can happen and how much can change in one year!!!  We re-visited Presque Isle and our photo spot that we took some of my maternity photos at last year.  We thought it would be fun to do some photos with Ada to help visualize how much can happen in one year.  This literally happened on a whim, so I was not exactly ‘photoshoot’ ready.  That’s what it’s all about though, capturing life’s moments as they happen – and making new moments happen on a whim!




My favorite.

    Love this blog! 🙂 Adorable and great way to capture how fast a year goes by! Lake Erie is one of my favorite places in the world, special to me because my husband and I started our lives together there (lived there together from age 18 to 22) and got engaged there. Just simply a special place.

    What a wonderful concept, Little Ada is going to love looking at these pictures as she grows up… I’d love to what other brilliant ideas you guys come up with!
