Friend Trip 2014-340

tenth annual friends trip + hudson valley

 {beginning our journey through the beautiful hudson valley we made a stop at the storm king art center. as we walked the rolling hills of the outdoor exhibit we were enamored by the juxtaposing beauty of nature with the unnaturally large modern sculptures placed brilliantly across it’s landscape.}

{we woke up the next morning in the charming town of chatham, ny to the sounds of horns and trumpets streaming through our open windows. to our delight we discovered that the sounds came from our front yard as they were preparing to take their places for the labor day parade. as we walked along side the deeply symbolic procession and made our way to an equally quaint coffee shop, we soaked up the nostalgia of this small town & couldn’t imagine being anywhere more perfect.} Friend Trip 2014-472Friend Trip 2014-172B10M Split elevenB10M Split TwelveB10M Split Thirteen

the last couple years one of my favorite parts of getting together with my two childhood best friends for our annual trip has been starting it off by catching up with the every growing east clan at their home in new haven, ct.  this year kate and i were introduced to the youngest & newest member of the family, sir rowan david. (i added the ‘sir’) hopefully these pictures speak for themselves, but rowan & big brother sam are two incredibly special little gems. and i grow more and more respectful of my dear friend katelin & her fabulous husband brad as they pour their hearts into these two sweet souls.

cheers to you east’s. here’s to years and years of sweetness amongst you.

{stay tuned for photos of our 10th annual friends trip as we journey through the hudson valley in new york & then together, for the first time we cross the border to view the niagra falls on canadian soil. }

this little bird, aka my little sister, will be leaving tmrw to begin many new adventures. the start of which will be beautifully close to me here in nashville, as she starts her freshman year at a college near by. it has been such a pleasure to see her blossom into the incredibly smart and kind and strong young lass she has become. it blows my mind to think about what the world has in store for her. the thing i can be sure of is that it will be truly fantastic.

keep following your heart little bird & it will take you far my dear.

love you.

What a genuine honor it was to be apart of such a beautiful day. This unique wedding day was a true representation of just how much Hannah & Aaron love each other. And further how much love surrounds these two.  They somehow managed to plan an evening that was equally as fun for their guests as it was for themselves. Good Food. Good Music. Good Company & many many hugs. If their wedding was any indication, they have quite a full life ahead of them.

Cheers to you Hannah & Aaron!!
