Creating an Heirloom

  • Legacy Wedding Albums

I finished my craft closet and now I’ve conquered the “Production Wall”.

Yup. We’re guilty. I used to see pictures of dogs in little outfits and think “Oh MY gosh, you probably spent $15 on a sweater vest for your chihuahua!! How ridiculous!!”. Well as we walked through Petsmart… we spotted a little tiny red raincoat…with a hood included. Michael stopped and looked at it, and then looked at me… almost as if he was saying
