It was clear on this summer morning that Anna is a happy baby who has two parents who love her very, very much. And turning one is a perfect time to document all of that! :)

What has made you happy the past couple of weeks? Here are a few of mine...

lars and the real girl | this movie is perfection. I watched "lars and the real girl" (again) recently and it gets me every time I see it (and I've seen it a lot). This one definitely makes the "favorite movies" list. Have you see it yet? Go and add it to your Netflix queue right now -- and move it to the top! Here are two of my very favorite scenes:

lars_blog.jpgice | anyone who knows me well, knows that I love ice. Not the kind that you skate (or slip) on. The kind that comes in wonderful little cubes. In water, diet coke, orange juice, etc - I love it! I can never have too much ice. I'll actually order a larger size at the ballpark or movies so that I can have lots of ice (and still have enough diet coke). A simple pleasure. Thankfully I don't have any issues with sensitive teeth. So for now, lots of ice please!

kittens | I'm good with the two I have, but that doesn't stop me from oohing and awing over other's kitties. This past weekend I met my mom's new kitty. He is such a cute, sweet kitty. If I didn't already have a full house, I would have been tempted to sneak him in the car. His name is Niblet. Isn't he cute?!

niblet_090510_05-Edit.jpgthe smell of fall | you can't describe it, but you know it when you smell it. It makes you want to open the windows and feel the breeze, wear jeans and a sweatshirt (and socks), put a blanket on the bed, and start thinking about all the things you can make (and eat) with pumpkin! :) I'm not ready for winter coats, but I'm definitely ready for fall.

I don't get to do these types of sessions too often, but I do love them. For you pet people, you get it. These furry beings are a part of the family. We love them. And wow do they love us. It makes me happy when I get to capture some of that love. Here are a few pages from Sarah & Isabel's proof album. :)

These photos are just too cute. And I'm not even a dog person. I wish you could have heard me make a fuss over them. :)
