Mama’s boys….

…are NOT a bad thing! Especially when your mom is as cool and AWESOME as this gorgeous Mama…

Mom's a rockstar!

sweet kisses

Is there anything as sweet as the special bond between a mom & her boys?

These sweethearts sure know how to melt mom’s heart…as well as every other lady in the room!

…and, I have to say, these little dudes are pretty darn sweet with each other!

For Mom….a vital piece of family history….giver of the greatest love…

As a kid I had an unusual curiosity & early appreciation for my family history and where I came from, spending hours upon hours studying our many family photo albums.  I was enchanted with the way my parents looked at each other the first day they brought me home from the hospital, the way my Mom would laugh when I would run into her arms for a hug, the way my brother and I would snuggle up on Mom when she was reading us a bedtime story, and the patience & love in Mom’s eyes as she donned a cowboy hat against a hot pink background when all I wanted for my birthday was a “Glamour Shots Photo Shoot” (seriously, where was Classic Kids when I was a kid?!?)….

This photo was, and still is, a vital piece art in our family home, blown up to poster size and predominantly displayed in our house since 1986. I have looked at this every day in the hallway outside my bedroom and it will NEVER feel dated or old, through this photo I can feel the love and warmth of my mom, and the joy I felt in her arms. It is truly a treasure, and something I will be passing down to my grandkids one day.

I am forever grateful to MY inspiring and beautiful Mom who is perfectly imperfect!  She is an amazing woman, wife, mother, and now Grandma who may think she sees wrinkles when she smiles, but the only thing I see is the loving sparkle in her eyes and all the years she has laughed and smiled with my brother and me. 

MY MOM WAS IN OUR PICTURES! 

(and my Dad made sure of it…way to go Dad!)

 …And a BIG CONGRATS to the newest mom in our family!  My nephew will never have to wonder how deep his mother’s love runs…he will have an endless picture book of her love over the years…he will see it in her eyes and the way she looks at him, he will see it in the way she loves to hold him and comfort him, he will see it in her smile that explodes with joy because he is hers.

Diamonds are no longer a girl’s best friend…

…Riley is!

I can just imagine the years to come with these two sidekicks…I’m positive they will be filled with many fun memories of playing, belly rubs, maybe a few ear tugs, and lots of slobbery licks & big laughs!

Amongst all the fun this little sweetheart showed us a glimpse of her soft & sweet side…what a perfect angel!

Thanks for a great playdate Gia & Riley!

….Chopper found his family!!!

When you visit the Hinsdale Humane Society you may fall in love with a puppy, you may fall in love with a cat, you may fall in love with a tortoise, and if you’re anything like me you may fall in love with them ALL! 

 Meet my newest love, an irresistible adoptee from HHS…CHOPPER!

 …luckily this little guy (he won’t stay little very long!) will still be a part of the Hinsdale Humane Society family because HHS volunteer and major animal lover, Kym, brought Chopper home to join HER family!!  I mean, let’s be honest, could YOU resist those puppy dog eyes?!?

 Chopper proudly joins his big sister and brother, Sugar and Dino…

…& don’t forget the gaggle of gals Chopper also calls his big sisters!

 Welcome to the family Chopper…and thanks, Kym, for all you do for our furry friends at HHS!!!!

You can help too!!  Interested in volunteering at the Hinsdale Humane Society? CLICK HERE!

Don’t have time to volunteer but you still want to support HHS?  …Book your Smooches for Pooches photo shoot for YOUR furry family member to benefit the Hinsdale Humane Society

…TWO bear sightings in the western suburbs!!!

…a polar bear in Hinsdale?!?

…or the neighborhood kids’ favorite grizzly bear?!?  (my vote is for teddy bear!!!)

Not to worry, before long it will be time to hibernate, and these bears will be good & ready to RELAX…

…..BUT FIRST LET’S PLAY SOME MORE!!

*Dear Bailey, our new BFF…thank you for making us smile all the mornings you come bursting through our door with your tail and cute big bum wiggling like crazy, ready for at least 20 full speed laps of fun around our front rug while you bolt between Maggie and me for belly rubs and kisses!  When daddy said you wait at the studio door for us on days we’re closed makes me want to come to work every day of the week!!!!

XOXO…Jamie & Maggie

There’s still time to Smooch your Pooch for the Hinsdale Humane Society…book your photo shoot before August comes to an end!
