stanley. one of the sweetest little guys i've ever met.

one of the work horses.

and the other two.

painting nails.

laurent, on the left, was glued to rob's side the whole time.

getting my hair done. they wanted to play with it constantly.

jude. he was sick and laura took him under her wing.

ready for school.

the littlest guys. couldn't get enough of them.

couldn't be more in love with this one. such a hard worker.
such a good heart.


the streets of haiti.

schneider, making the letters for this year's christmas cards.

markens. this little man has a personality bigger than life.

notice their drawing. yep, my heart melted.

sweetest little bug.

the orphanage. a giant concrete building filled with lots of cold hard floors
and warm little hearts.

the birthday party for all the kids.

oh these faces...

i don't have the words to accurately describe our week at the orphanage.
simply put, it was life changing.
we're in love with all those sweet little souls 
and we'll be connected to them for always.

autumn and things

just the rest of the random moments from fall...

two of his most favorite people

charlie plays with his food much more frequently
than he actually eats it

haircut #2
just as traumatic as haircut #1 {for me}

he on the other hand, was quite pleased

with rex the dragon

brotha's from anotha motha

playing with papa and shoveling leaves
nothing could be better

dad's training camp

oh that boy
never thought i could love so intensely

shooting a little video for Miche bags with some of my girls

and now it's almost time for winter. 
i'm trying to be brave.
planning lots of warm beverage drinking, jazz music listening, good book reading, charlie in the snow playing, lover and me by a fire cuddling, and sunny destination visiting 
is helping...
so, bring it on winter,
i think i'm ready.
