It feels like this week hasn’t even started yet, and now it’s over. Which is not great for my to-do list, but is pretty awesome for baby cuddle time. BUTTTTT. The week was long enough for Maddie and I to get together and turn a confetti push pop into an
enormous mess .gif. We’re amazing right? I’m duly impressed with our technical prowess/ mess making abilities myself.
For those of you that are sad that you miss the behind the scenes madness of things like our photoshoots, or who just want MOAR APW ALL THE TIME, we’ve been ramping up our sharing on Facebook, as well as sharing the pretty on Instagram, so join us for the all-the-time party. More outtakes of these shoots to come, including the totally ridiculous “test shots” Maddie insisted on doing of me, because, “She never gets to take bad pictures of people ever.” You’re welcome, Maddie.
With that, it’s your open thread. Make the magic happen! Plus, share your best links from the week, please. I need more weekend reading.
