Welcome To The World Emma Nicole

My beautiful niece was born Saturday, May 7th at 2:41 pm. She weighs 6.8 pounds and is 19 3/4 inches long and has a head full of black hair :) She stole my heart the moment I saw her.

I can't wait to see her grow up and to spoil her rotten, of course! It's an aunts job to help spoil ;)

"Only an Aunt...

can give hugs like a mother, can keep secrets like a sister, and share love like a friend."

Forest Inspiration

I was just searching some forest pictures on weheartit and just had to share some I found. These pictures are so magical and inspiring.....and there is a great outdoor bed! ♥ it!

All images found via weheartit
It seemed that a lot of my time spent as a child was in the forest exploring, either at my grandparents farm, a friends pasture out in the country, or around my grandmas cabin in Michigan. The forest has always been a magical place to me where your imagination can go crazy. I hope one day to own a plot of land large enough to have plenty of forest to explore...I would love for my children to be able to explore the land and make their own stories and "areas" one day. (We used to have a nice little 'fort' - just a gathering of trees in the cow pasture - we always went to at my grandparents farm in Missouri)

I can't wait to go camping and hopefully floating this summer! Is there anything that YOU are looking forward to doing this summer??
