a flower girl for my baby sister


oh, yea, everyone knows that. and probably have all seen the photos so these aren’t really needed. but hey, just thought i’d share a few of the flower girl from the big day.

the day was a little crazy. first we had to decorate the venue at 0-dark hundred.

then we got our hair done and got ready: wedding prep sophie stealing headband little miss Sophia was enthralled with Aunt Mimi’s (Amy’s)hair and headband. i’m pretty sure she thought she was a real life princess the entire day. wedding flower girl checking herself and we all did lots of primping. flower girl included.

wedding -sisters ack! my baby sister! so grown up and beautiful!    wedding -me and flower girl

my baby is pretty grown up too. but was already exhausted…

flower girl down2

then we walked down the aisle.

wedding - flower girl walking

where she *blew* me away with how well she dropped leaves. i mean, in all the “practices” we did at home she just dumped the basket. but nope, that day, in front of everyone, she showed off that she knew what to do. LOL. wedding flower girl aisle

wedding - flower girl walking2 i LOVE this shot!

wedding - dad and amy wedding flower girl laying down then we proceeded to act like the 21 month old we are… and lie in the dirt. wedding - flower girl distracted  and then get up and play with sticks and leaves while daddy was talking…{he did the ceremony}    wedding - flower girl being distracting but since we’re just so darn cute, we got away with it.

wedding - cousins silly2 then more photos were taken. like this crazy one with all the cousins. lauffenburgers are a crazy silly bunch. and we love them.

wedding family photo2

hey! family photo! so fun! the little flower girl is laughing because she’s about to cause trouble be as cute as can be.

wedding - papa and sophia good thing Papa was there. Papa is her favorite person ever. well, before Aunt Mimi became a princess. {sorry Papa, i think you may have gotten moved to second place on her daily talking points} 

wedding -dancing is her fav she LOVED dancing. ALL NIGHT LONG. wedding cupcake mother daughter but cupcakes were a favorite too, not to fear. {doh. how embarrassing!} wedding - with gparents

and going through GiGi’s purse was pretty entertaining too.Great Grandma enjoyed it too i think.

wedding- sisters it was a beautiful day, perfect weather, perfectly perfect.  a gorgeous celebration of a new adventure for My sweet Miss A. we’re all so excited for you.

wedding - 4 girls

{in no way is this an exhaustive pile of photos from the wedding… i’m trying not to overdo it. just some favorites. note: some photos taken by my uncle and cousins.}

a little tour around the blog {& a giveaway!}

this may seem like a silly post to most of you. but there are a few of my followers {like my sweet grandparents} who may need a little direction around this new space. so i thought, why not?

and plus! there’s a giveaway at the end!

so, i’m still working out some of the kinks of this new space… like this past week i nearly panicked that i’d lost all my images. well, somehow i did from backstage… but they are still showing up here on the blog…so i’m just going to leave it at that. how WEIRD is the internet sometimes?! haha. just being painfully honest here. i’m learning!!

first things first, a little tour:

to contact me

first off, on top you can see little tabs for “about” “shop” and “contact”

please please please, if you ever want to contact me, just click on that little button! and the shop button goes straight to my etsy shop, which hopefully will be updated soon {i will update you, i promise!}

to get to me other ways

or if you wish to find me on my other social media places, just click on those buttons on the right.  if you have an rss feed, you can click on that button.

to get to tutorials

if you want to check out some of favorite posts, or my tutorials, or a specialized list of my “blessings” posts where i speak from my heart about what God is showing me, then click on those flags over there to the right.

i just updated the a few of the flags, so feel free to check it out!

to search the blog

if you remember something i wrote about or want to search something, go ahead and type it in the search bar over there on the right!

and perhaps, the main purpose of this post:

to subscribe

the subscribe button!

a few people have asked me  how they can sign up to receive emails directly when i post. this, folks, is it! just type in your email address and push that little subscribe button!  i promise not to send any crap to your email box, just a little love when i publish a post!

now, on to the giveaway:


for anyone who subscribes by tuesday, you will be entered to win a free Joshua 24:15 printable!

you can choose either one and you can print it as many times as you want!

yup! that means you can print one for yourself, and then print one for your mom and one for your best friend and one for the new neighbors down the street. kinda fun huh?!

i love these little guys and i use them as gifts ALL.THE.TIME {as some of you dear friends, know. lol}


if you already subscribe you will be automatically entered to win!

and for an extra chance to win just comment on this post and tell me that you subscribed! and remember, you have until Tuesday at noon to be entered!  i will announce the winner here on Tuesday evening!

hello brand new blog!

2013-08-10 12.05.00

hello to my brand new blog! thanks for being here, friends!!

i’m really excited about this new space.

i’m also thinking that i’m just a little bit crazy for starting this right now… i’m thinking i have so many other things that i should focus on rather than a blog. {as you may have noticed my previous blog was missing some love this summer}

but my heart tells me to share my life, my story, and my art. i want to record what God’s done, what He IS doing, and what He IS GOING to do!

and guess what, HE is going to do some awesome things! we have so much to look forward to::

  • we may have just bought a house, so we’ll have to share more of our adventures about that!
  • that includes all the projects we’re going to get to start experimenting with. DIY anyone? SO.EXCITED.
  • we have been so blessed and i want to share what God is working on in my heart
  • by and by i’m sure there will be some design discussions…as my new title suggests…design is definitely at the center of who God made me to be.
  • i’m dying to get back into painting and sharing printables and tutorials for you to have art in your home. {i just have to unpack my paints!}
  • we have a sweet little girl on the way in december …i CAN’T wait to have you meet her!

so… here we go!

for more of what i’m hoping for in this space, please go check out my “about page”

xoxo – kimberly renee

ps- please bear with me as i’m still working out the kinks in this new space. it also would be really really helpful if you let me know if you notice anything wrong! xoxo
