Halloween 2016 | Part II | Cinderella

Last year’s wolf transforms into this year’s elegant vision in blue … Cinderella!  Much discussion was had in regards to which version of Cinderella we should go with, the old classic or the latest modern re-envisioning.  In the end, we had a beautiful blue dress already and decided to work with the elements we had to retell this story in our own way.  But here she is … my very own sweet and kind Cinderella.  She keeps growing entirely too fast, and having just celebrated her 5th birthday two months ago, she believes herself to be a rather grown young lady … though her father is doing his best to remind her that she is not quite there yet.  Just as with big brother’s photos, we took to our downtown after dark (which is earlier and earlier these days) and imagined we were racing out of the ball as the clock struck midnight!

Lots of warm wishes for a lovely day for you all!  May your memories be sweet, filled with touches of magic and whimsy, and lots of laughs and good cheer today!

With love,

Magdalena

Halloween 2016 | Part I | Marty McFly

It hardly seems possible that an entire year has flown by since I last wrote here.  It has been a season of change and growth in many ways, and also simply a very busy year for me, but I will be returning to the space shortly because I am itching to be writing again.

In the meantime, another Halloween and another set of costume adventures for our family.  This year for my son, we hopped on the time travel train, or rather Delorean, and had lots of fun playing Marty McFly from the Back to the Future series!  The costume was seemingly simple, if it weren’t for the fact that apparently finding a red puffer vest was trickier than I had anticipated.  But we finally pulled it all together and we had so much fun doing our photo shoot after dark in our downtown.

Hope your Halloween is filled with lots of wonderful family memories!  Stay tuned for Part II where last year’s wolf transforms into a lovely and elegant vision in blue!

With Love,

Magdalena
