George Eliot

Now that I've seen every Jane Austen movie...well not exactly, but almost...I thought it time to move on to something similar but different. Lucky for me, brilliant Netflix realized my very specific style and made a new suggestion genre for me appropriately called "Romantic British Dramas" or something like that. Daniel Deronda (originally a book by George Eliot) was a suggestion so I added it, watched it, and really liked it. One of the best things about this genre is that you see the same actors over and over in these period pieces... in Daniel Deronda I saw the main girl who is Emma in a BBC version, Mr. Collins from the A&E version of P + P, and the chubby cheeks guy from Notting Hill...not a period piece but funny nonetheless.

I told David about my new George Eliot find and he surprised me by telling me that George Eliot was actually a woman...and that George Eliot was her pen name. Now I was intrigued (and embarassed 1. that I didn't already know that and 2. because I haven't read anything by him...her...whatever.)

I now have about 5 other George Eliot based movies in my Netflix queue. And a big list of new classic novels I need to devour.

Anyone out there have a fave, or ever seen any of them?

Mr. Beck

Beck has made his way into our lives and he's already made quite an impression :) He's definitely the baby I've photographed the most in my life so far, and I've enjoyed every minute of it! I had this idea to do a before/after shot with Christiana, and I happened to take the before picture (of her belly) the day before baby boy arrived. It was kind of an afterthought shot, but it turned out to be my favorite. The after shot of him was taken when he was a week old. He's a good yawner!
Just a reminder, please do not use my photos without a link
back to the original post. Feel free to contact me with questions.

The 4th

4th of July weekend was spent in California, babysitting our nieces and celebrating with David's brothers + their families in LA. We bbq'ed and played with the girls in their jump fun! Then we headed out to watch fireworks at a park.

It's a Baby Shower!

My sister in law Chelsea and I (with a lot of help from my Mom as well) threw a shower for our sister in law Moonsung. She's having a baby girl and we couldn't be more excited to welcome another niece into the family :)
We went all pink! Dresden helped me cut out the flowers using a sweet little cutter thing for the mobile, and my mom and I baked all day Friday to get everything ready-

Go here to get the Brazilian Limeade recipe. It was a big hit!
