in the summer we got to go to australia & new zealand for 2 weeks!
i never blogged this trip! sad! i hereby promise to!
we got to visit with my lovely sis in brisbane.
baby blake was born in june! my cute little aussie nephew!

we moved to our new place in august.
we love it! lots of space and it feels like a real house.
we've been so happy here!
the day before we moved, 
we shot TWO weddings in one day...while i was 7 months pregnant!
it was insanely awesome! i hurt so badly after! (wedding #1 & #2)

i started a new semester of full-time teaching,
and in september i did a lot of nesting in prep for baby girl.
this pretty baby shower really helped me get ready!

a beautiful crafty-vintage baby shower thrown by violet's aunties.
the hubby & i celebrated our 3 year anniversary!
took some super fun maternity photos with my giant bump.
i was a pregnant ballerina for halloween (no photos for a reason) 
and will made a cute samurai.

in november i started my maternity leave from teaching & photography.
