Sofia 365: Day 148

Day 148: 8.5.12

Sunday was certainly less hectic than the day before, but definitely no less hot! I was great that I got a chance to do a wedding over on my parent’s side at least once for this season. The weather was beautiful, albeit hot, and I got to help another bride get all beautiful and ready to go for her special day.

There’s definitely something to be said about my line of work, you get to be a part of some of the most intimate moments of a person’s life. It’s kind of a strange perspective, especially seeing so many different brides and how they handle their own day differently. It’s pretty interesting, and I’m thankful and lucky to be a part of these moments.

After I finished my job, I ran a few errands then came home for an early dinner. Veggie dogs and baked beans, not bad at all.

Poor Sofie was so tired because she hadn’t napped all day, she fell asleep at the table! After dinner, I got everything packed and ready to go and whisked Sofia away back home to our apartment and daddy.
We took this picture earlier in the day before we left, Sofie was playing in the pool while I was working and got changed once I got home. She insisted on holding the dog’s collars and clothes for the photo.

Sofia 365: Day 147

Day 147: 8.4.12

Saturday was a HOT, HOT day.

I had to get up early to drive to a wedding which was about an hour and a half away; even at 6 am it was still about 70 degrees. No joke.

I hardly realized the temperature change because I had been working inside with my bride and her bridesmaids all morning, but the instant I stepped outside of that air conditioned building the humidity and heat hit me like a brick wall. It was sweltering, all I could think about was hope that the bride wouldn’t melt in her dress! She did look absolutely fabulous though, if I say so myself!

Once I got back from my wedding I had to head straight to my studio to meet another bride for a trial session. I think I did pretty great with her as well.

Sofie kept cool in her pool at my parent’s house all day. Lucky her, wish I could have hopped in a pool!
Anyways, after that long, long day I still had to prepare to take a ferry over to my parent’s house for my wedding on Sunday because it was in Poulsbo.

You’d think that after I finished my trial session I would have been home free, but no, I somehow had managed to “lose” my car keys so I was stuck. After about an hour of freaking out, being hungry, thinking I had locked my keys in my trunk and calling Jason and having him bring out his spare keys to me, I still didn’t find my keys. They weren’t in my trunk, not in my car, not anywhere between where I had parked and my studio, which wasn’t very far at all… After some exasperation I checked inside my purse again.

(This is the part where I hit myself in the head, hard)

The keys had slipped into a pocket I didn’t even know had existed until that point, hence the whole not being able to find it part. I felt like an idiot, but all I really wanted to do was get to my parents home and sleep.

I caught the next ferry back over and finally got home around 10pm, from waking up at 5:30 am to going to bed around 11, I pulled a pretty long and eventful day.

I’m just at least glad that I could snuggle up next to Sofie at the end of it all.

Serious Face.

Sofia 365: Day 103

Day 103: 6.21.12

Happy Monday everyone! It’s been another long and busy weekend, and now it’s time to catch up on Sofie’s photos.

So let’s see what I’ve been up to…

Thursday, I spent the day at the beauty studio working on painting and decorating. It’s really starting to come together and I’m so excited to see it all finished!

Sofia went over to her grandma’s house for the day, it was so nice out, I kind of wish I spent some time outside! Sunny days are few and far between here, but hopefully I’ll have more chances this summer to spend time outside with Sofie and family.

Here’s Sofie in her summer shorts! Love it.

Summer Shorts!

Sofia 365: Day 102

Day 102: 6.20.12

Ahh, it’s nice to be all caught up.

Today was such a gorgeous day. The sun was out, it was warm (almost hot), and I got to spend some time outside with Sofie today which was great. I took her out to Seattle and played in Cal Anderson park for a little bit.

I do miss living on Capitol Hill… Hope to move back sometime soon.

Sofie made a few friends at the park today. I never really noticed until recently how big she is for her age. She’s just 15 months old and she has been bigger than most babies/toddlers we’ve met that are OLDER than her! She was even the same size as a 20 month old we met at the park.

It’s kind of crazy, I mean, I’m so small, she must get it from her dad. I swear, by the time she’s in her double digits she’ll be taller than me.

Glad I had a chance to pull out one of Sofie’s newest outfits today, love that little romper, it’s just been too cold to wear it out!

Her expression here is great too.

Summer Romper.
