Mommy & Me at Willow & Wren

Willow & Wren was the perfect spot for the Mommy & Me Mini Session Event! Half of the Session Fees are being donated to Relay for Life! Woot! So excited about that! Our community is pretty involved in Relay for Life and I'm on our local Starbucks' team, "Brewin for a Cure" ...as a former partner and obsessive drinker (coffee),  I enjoy being part of the team! So I'm excited that we were able to donate a little extra to the cause.  I will be open and honest here and just say that... I waited way too long to launch the program and results didn't turn out as poppin as I had hoped for. Willow & Wren was perfect though! The adorable small town shop belongs to an old high school friend. I'm so proud of that Girl-Boss! Runnin your own business is no joke! And seriously this shop is so stinkin adorable. This place had me drooling over it the minute I walked in! This is future studio material we're talkin! Some-day you guys.. someday. #goalsetting  ;) lol
ANYWAY, I digress.. lol - However low the turn out, I did get to reconnect with a childhood friend and her adorable little girl. Mellisa and I used to meet up at my dad's property after school I think at the end of JR. High and beginning of HS. Her grandma was a caretaker for my grandma. I had a horse there, an old sweet learner horse for me ;) and we pretended to totally know what we were doing, rode poor Sugar around town until she was sweaty, spent the days outside, or scrounging for money to go get Dottie's, and all was good!  We have "reconnected" on Facebook over the last couple of years but we haven't met up, or talked much at all until she inquired about the Mini Sessions. She has not changed a bit! She has become a beautiful Momma, she has such a sweet disposition and is doing a great job with her little girl! Who by the way is such a ham! I feel so blessed to have been able to reconnect with her for the shoot and our ordering session and capture this sweet season for them. 
Happy Almost Mother's Day!! I hope this brightens your week!
