SHARE. We have two baby registries. One is with Babies “R” Us (for our not-so-internet friendly family + friends). And the other is with Of course, I adore everything that we put on both registries — but playing with the Amazon registry has been so fun because you can add items from any website in the entire world. It’s too cool. I could spend days browsing baby clothes + nursery decor.

WANT. I’ve been searching for the perfect maternity dress for my baby shower + maternity photos. I want something bright, fun, and flattering. It seems a lot to ask considering I’ve gained 30-plus pounds so far and it’s NOT “all belly.” I love this gorgeous shot from this post via on to baby. Oh, and if you have any recommendations for cute maternity dresses that don’t cost a fortune, please share!

WAIT. I spent a year collecting antique + vintage glass bottles for our wedding centerpieces. The beautiful thing is that now, I get to use them to decorate our home. I’m so much looking forward to the farmer’s markets starting up again so that I can fill the entire house with lovely stems in glass.

LOVE. My gorgeous nephew, Aden Gerard, was born last Friday. He is the sweetest little thing that I’ve ever seen. I’m gearing up to take some newborn photographs of him soon. He is absolutely perfect — and of course — making me yearn to meet my own little boy.

    That dress is so gorgeous! I love the photoshoot, makes me want to pick up my camera 🙂 Last time I picked up a $40 maternity dress from Old Navy, a maxi dress that I can wear non-pregnant as well. Very cute and colourful, beachy dress. I was going to bring it with me to Hawaii but I forgot! The first time, I bought a maternity dress from this shop: (on Etsy as well). She doesn’t seem to make a specific maternity dress anymore which is sad because she priced it much lower than all of her dresses today. But still, gorgeous, comfy maternity dress if you’re okay shelling out a little more.

      I have heard so many good things about Old Navy maternity! I am definitely going to check it out. I also discovered “Pea in the Pod” today. Cute stuff, pricy, but the clearance items are in my range. 😉 Hope you are having the most wonderful time in Hawaii. I am soaking up every single photograph! <3
