Lesley and I kept joking about going out for margaritas together. And getting our little unicorn-loving girls together. And shopping for her next photo session, together. And so we made it all happen. One fabulous evening in July, I met Lesley at my favorite local place to shop, Consign Couture, where we set the girls up in the backyard with hula hoops and coloring books, both of which were ignored as they were too enraptured with a game of being unicorns (naturally). Tamara (the owner) used her mighty fashion skills to find a few perfect looks for Lesley, and I may or may not have provided a pitcher of margaritas. It was incredibly fun and if I could make it work, I would totally do that for anyone who asked. (It was also what triggered the idea of the Consign Couture PQP party, which was ridiculously fun and will definitely happen again.
Cut to a month later, on a gorgeous evening in August at a stunning vineyard, and here is lovely Lesley, with her beautiful children, doing the thang they do so naturally. Love love love love love love love love love LOVE.
Thanks for putting up with all the superlatives, folks, when I'm in a good mood I tend to fling them about. And how could I not be in a good mood, I mean, these people, the love, this work of mine, THIS WEATHER!!!
Sad wet September really kicked the summer unicorns right out of me, it wasn't pretty around here, and by here, I mean my brain; my level of negativity was on a frightening level you guys. But Augtober is rocking my world and giving me all kinds of hope for mankind. And fall. [winky smoochy kiss face]
