distracted by beauty

Aloha! I'm alive, really I am. It's just that I am here. Here. Looking at this kind of beauty every single day and completely overwhelmed by it. I hope you've been following along on Instagram because we have been exploring and adventuring since the moment we arrived on Oahu and I love sharing daily bits and pieces there. I really do want to share some bigger pictures here in this space. I don't really know where to begin so I will just begin where I am, which is totally in awe...
More to come soon -promise!

the one year old

donovan zachary on his first birthday ~ august 6, 2014 ~ college station, tx.
On August 6, as we were traveling through Texas, Donovan turned one. We shaped a watermelon into a birthday cake and sang to him as he just looked at us, tired and confused. It wasn't the most festive of birthday parties but that it in no way lessened our joy in marking one year of this little boy's life. We didn't have fancy invitations or pinterest decorations or even a gift for our baby boy, but we had everything that matters- family, a healthy kiddo, joy. I can't believe it's been a whole year since we first held this tiny boy. He's still tiny by the way, weighing in at a whopping fifteen pounds. He's sporting the cutest head of soft baby hair and seven smiley teeth. He hasn't felt the need to use real words just yet but we can tell walking is just around the corner. His siblings worship the ground he crawls on.
Every day he's a surprise. An incredible gift. And he's one. Our baby, Donovan, is one.

elements of a fairy tea

A perfect summer day.
Cousins in homemade crowns.
Pink tea. Very sweet, pink tea.
Grandad's flowers and YiaYia's flowered china.
Giggling chatter and endless requests for more.
Pinkies in the air (just the way Aunt Sissie taught us.)
Imagination. Wonder. Memories.
Little hearts that know they are cherished.
