As you can see, I quite literally took the new dress out for a spin on Sunday. It’s become a fast favorite and what better way to show off a gorgeous Gunne than with a good sun drenched swirl! I learned that from the best, you know, and our newly blooming trumpet vine provided the perfect back drop :)
This was to be my 4th of July festivities outfit, so I added the red and white felted flower hair clip, beautifully crafted by Anne, and my old cheapo red maryjanes (not thrifted) to go with my blue florals.
Our friends Joey and Laura Jane, you remember them, pulled off another awesome 4th of July Party. This year’s was bigger and better than ever.
Julianne and I are always the ones running around with our cameras in hand at these sorts of events and will often end up taking pictures of the same thing at the same time. In this case, the girls having an impromptu dance party in the living room.
Out back it was all about the beer and the BBQ.
Plenty of sweet moments to be captured too, complete with color theme. I loved that Clover’s little bestie Lilia’s flaming curls provided the red to go with her adorable blue and white outfit. How cute are those boots, btw?!
Laura Jane’s collection of homemade hoops strewn throughout the yard brought hours of entertainment for the little ones!
Ok, maybe not just the little ones ;)
Clover was surrounded by all of her closest friendlets and cousins, pretty much running wild and having the time of her life the whole time. This was a rare sitting still moment.
As the sun went down, fairy lights were lit, candles set aglow, and a fire built to rage in the outdoor fireplace. Soon the night air was filled with excited squeals as the fireworks show, conveniently set off right down the street, began and we all rushed out to the front yard for the best view...
Happy Fourth of July, indeed :)
