It always melts my heart the way Owen just loves his daddy. When he wakes up in the morning, he’s asking for his daddy. If he hears a song that Michael sings to him, he starts screaming, “Oh, daddy!” If the garage door opens, he runs to the back door just screaming. Lately, at nap time, I ask him which book he wants to read and he always picks up My Daddy and Me. So sweet and he loves reading it before going to sleep. Remember bear? He loves reading it, too.

One of my goals for April was to make some fun food for Owen. He loved this ice cream grilled cheese, and I thought it was just too cute.(Find out how to make it here. See more examples of food we made here and here.)

I am really excited about May – it’s a month of celebrations. In only a week, it will be my birthday and then at the end of the month is the first anniversary of the business. I started Rebecca Keller Photography in May of 2011. It has been such a great year – I have learned so much and I have met so many great new friends. Still trying to think of a great way to celebrate the first year. I’m also working on two big projects this month – so one of my goals is to finish those projects.

Goals for May:

* Take Owen to the Museum of Life and Science 

* Finish the two new projects I’m working on

* Continue to work on framing/hanging pictures in my house.

* Finish planning something for Owen’s 2nd birthday. (yes, he will be two in June)

If you have not been to the Savory Spice Shop in Raleigh, it is somewhere you definitely need to check out, especially if you love to cook. The shop is wall to wall spices and there are all kinds of speciality blends and gift sets to choose from. Michael and I LOVE paella so I was excited to find out that they sell saffron. There are BBQ spices, herbs, salts, cocoas, and much more. The shop is located in Lafayette Village at Honeycutt Road and Falls of the Neuse Road.

Another great thing about the spice shop is that they sell cookbooks and there are also recipes scattered around the store. You can find the owner’s curried chicken salad recipe right next to the Medium Yellow Curry Powder.

While Owen and I were there, we picked up some lavender so that we could make Lavender Cookies.

The cookies were a big hit! We will be back to the Savory Spice Shop soon for some more recipes and spices!

 

This little one was just so sweet and precious. He was so happy and slept most of the session. What a beautiful baby and such a precious gift he is! He is surrounded by so much love and such a sweet family. Here are a few favorites from the session.

What a beautiful day for a session! Liam had such a great time throwing the football and running around barefoot. It was a perfect day to be outside, and we were able to capture some sweet memories before this family of three becomes a family of four. Can’t wait to meet their little girl on the way in just a few weeks!
