Family, friends, an American Girl theme, balloons and cake…Nora’s birthday wish came true for her 8 year-old birthday party! 🙂
My daughter has been wanting to wear glasses, although she has eagle-eye vision, so she jumped on board with the latest trend to wear clear, non-prescription glasses. So, she grabbed the Harry Potter book she’s reading, I put some chopsticks in her hair, and she willingly modeled for this shot. I have to admit, I absolutely LOVE this look!
For years Nora has asked to paint her room purple. FINALLY, almost 8 years after we painted her nursery a newborn-neutral sage green, we’re giving her an accent wall coated in Wild Violet, which is the vibrant, bold hue she chose. We told her SOMETIME before school starts we’d paint her room, and today, while she’s away at a sleepover, we’re making quick work of this task so she’ll be surprised when she comes home tomorrow! 😀
In 1880, Renoir had a more refined setting in mind when he painted Luncheon of the Boating Party but, in 2013 this is how girls lunch, after air-mattress kayaking on the lake, digging into their grub while reclining on their air mattresses! I love their style! LOL
