My Princess is One

I got the sweetest idea from my friend Jill. She took pictures of her daughter in her wedding dress on her 1st birthday. She took them again recently when her daughter turned two. They were absolutely precious. I was inspired. I was also very excited because I heard about the idea before Elisabeth's birthday.

I called my mom and asked her to bring my wedding dress with her when she flew out to visit. We had so much fun taking pictures of Elisabeth in my dress! She was a princess.

Here are 4 of my favorite photos (and I took a ton of photos).

O Man...I had mine perserved. So mine is stuck in a box all tucked away. What a great idea though. I hope that they will some day wear mine though.

These are so darling. My Libbyline and I "ooh-ed and ahh-ed" out loud when we saw them.

There are some things I just wished I'd learned of 12 years ago. This is one. I'm so glad you posted these, Jane Anne. Definitely a fabulous idea. You'll treasure these forever.

Jane Anne, maybe as a guy I see this differently, but my first thought is, "wow, I did not realize how small you were."

Seriously though, that is very sweet.
