I was a little nervous about how I would pull it off in a fun and modern way, but with help from some friends and a little creative crafting on my end, it turned out better than I expected! And of course, one of my very best friends and favorite new photographer, Photography From Eileen, captured it all!

So, here I am in late August dumping it all into one post.

This summer has marked some major milestones in Rocco’s life as a one-year-old and I’d love to share a few.
