I had a little getaway in Victoria this weekend to visit one of my best friends Jess and her wonderful family. It’s a trip I have made many, many times before… I have been going over pretty much once a month since my god daughter Everly was 6 months old… and this week she turns three – three!
I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! She is turning in to quite the little lady. It’s amazing that I’ve been able to watch her grow, yet scary at the same time. I can remember her when she was just learning to walk and talk… heck I can remember her when she was learning to sit up, and was convinced she was a genius that could say ‘hi’ at three months (I still maintain she’s a genius, even though she may or may not have actually been saying hi)
Anyways, not only is Everly lucky enough to have a dedicated Auntie Ren who makes the long trek to Victoria from Vancouver once a month (on public transit no less!) she also has a super talented and creative mom who threw her the fanciest party I think I’ve ever been to.
Jess is an amazing photographer; you can check out all of her work at Little Pickle Photography, along with lots of photos of Everly and the new addition to the god-baby block Matthew. Not only is Jess a highly skilled photographer, but she is also hugely talented when it comes to planning and throwing parties.
Here are few pictures from Everly’s ‘Rise and Climb’ party. I just took them with my iPhone (and instagram helped out on a few) but to see photos that actually do the party justice, check out the Little Pickle Photography blog
