Caro’s Senior Portraits

Finally!  The wait is over dear friends.  You may now spend hours gazing upon these photos, and you probably will too…there are a lot.  I had a great time at the UT Gardens with Caro.  She survived the camera being on her at all times, graffiti of people with lots of eyes, and even an encounter with a coffin…it was quite the day.   She was a great sport and the pictures turned out fabulous.

Halloween Revisited

Yesterday I recapped on October just a bit and promised to share all the spooky recipes from our Halloween party.  Well I plan on doing just that, although I’m kicking myself for not taking more pictures of the party itself!  I got lost in the moment, my blond wig was askew, I had mummies in the oven, and our guests showed up early…that’s the best excuse I can give.
