These pictures were taken by the lovely Diana from Diana Putnam Photography. It was seriously such a pleasure working with her. I could immediately tell she was very experienced and loves doing what she does. Despite the freezing cold temperatures, it was such a fun filled afternoon filled with getting to know one another and laughter. Zaden was also very well behaved during the entire shoot but refused to take photos with me, haha (;

Diana is offering one lucky couple a wedding photography package worth over $2,000! If you know of a couple getting hitched sometime between March-July 2015 this an amazing once in a life time opportunity. For details on how to enter visit THIS POST on her site.

As far as this outfit goes, I'm loving this t-shirt dress from Kosher Casual. It's seriously so soft and comfortable and is one of the most versatile dresses in my closet. I wanted to play around with different patterns and colors when styling this dress. Love the pops of color and pattern mixing which makes this outfit interesting and doesn't take away from the simplistic beauty of the dress itself. This dress is currently on sale over at Kosher Casual for only $20 and comes in black, heather gray, and navy. Dress runs a little big in my opinion. I'm normally a size medium and ordered a size small and it fits perfectly.

I know I haven't been the best blogger lately but if you follow along on Instagram you might have read that I'm having a major case of the winter blues. I know that if I wake up each morning with a positive attitude and keep myself busy that I can overcome this. My husband and I had a wonderful date night yesterday and I feel that spending time alone with him and going out was just what I needed to help cheer me up.

Also, I just barely randomly selected the winners for the last THREE giveaways (ugh so behind). Giveaway winners announced on the rafflecopter widget on original posts. I will get around to emailing all winners tomorrow morning.
