Maya turns 5!! And she chooses black balloons… :)


FIVE!!!!

I’m not sure why this age feels so much different, but…you. You are becoming such an amazing little PERSON!
*
You crack me up like no other. I’m in awe of your wit, and you are truly happiest when you are making others laugh.
*
You seek out and experience joy in a way that I envy. It’s so infectious! You brighten everyone’s day that you are around. Luckily, for me, I get to be around you a lot. ❤️
*
You ABSOLUTELY have your own opinions, and cannot be swayed.
*
Black balloons? Even after both me and the lady blowing them up tried to sway you away towards another color. Honestly…I love them!
*
You are a total rule follower. It’s a blessing and a curse. Curse, mainly when you call me out on breaking the rules…
*
You used to be sooooo cautious, but are now suddenly opening up to trying to do things that I can’t believe you want to try. And you do them!! SO PROUD!
*
Most of all…you are one of the sweetest, kindest, loving people I know, and I am so lucky to be your mama.

Love you Peanut.blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-1 It’s so funny.  At the balloon counter, both the woman who was helping us and I double and triple checked that she really wanted black balloons.  She was insistent, and I honestly love how they turned out!blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-2 Oh, and I also had a different outfit picked out for her, but she was adamant about this dress and boots.   And I have to admit…that pop of pink?  

LOVE IT!blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-3 hahaha.blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-4I kept my outfit pretty simple.  A) because, honestly, I wasn’t even sure we were really going to attempt this shoot until about 45 minutes before we did it-ha! B) it was her day! C) you can’t go wrong with black, denim, and a leather jacket!blog-doma-leather-jacket-cynthia-vincent-peplum-top-dl1961-toni-el-naturalista-booties-1 Where’s Maya?? 🙂blog-doma-leather-jacket-cynthia-vincent-peplum-top-dl1961-toni-el-naturalista-booties-6 blog-doma-leather-jacket-cynthia-vincent-peplum-top-dl1961-toni-el-naturalista-booties-7 blog-doma-leather-jacket-cynthia-vincent-peplum-top-dl1961-toni-el-naturalista-booties-8 blog-doma-leather-jacket-cynthia-vincent-peplum-top-dl1961-toni-el-naturalista-booties-9I could eat her up…blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-10 blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-11 blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-12blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-12 blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-happy-hannas-tutu-dress-smoky-cowboy-boots-13

In the green of the grass…
In the smell of the sea…
in the clouds floating by…
at the top of a tree…
in the sound crickets make at the end of the day…

“You are loved. You are loved. You are loved,” they all say.
