a photo session and a random winner

a couple weekends ago (when the weather still remembered it was fall) i had the opportunity to do a photo session of one of my bestest friends and her family.

















the camera just loves them, and they were incredibly easy to work with (although when her hubby said he was "channeling brad pitt" i had to issue a stern warning to quit making the photographer laugh, lest they end up with a hundred blurry photos from camera shake).

thanks, guys. i had SUCH a great time.




and now for the winner of the softie doll giveaway:



numero nueve is jen, who is an amazing artist and one of my favorite people of all time because she is just so brilliant and sweet (plus also she loves all the same books and movies i do).

congrats, girlie! i think i have your addy on file, but i may be overestimating my organizationalness. i'll shoot you a note if i can't find it (so yeah, expect to hear from me soon).



and thank you all for commenting--i honestly think i get far more out of these giveaways than the winner, as the stories you share seriously brighten my life. it's nice to know there's so much good stuff going on in this world, isn't it?

happy thursday, friends.

Fantastic photos Nic!! Your friend has a lovely family.

Thanks for the comment on my photo. :o) And the "feelin ya" on Jon McLaughlin... I heart his new CD. I didn't know about you living close to his hometown, but that's so fun to know, and somehow painful... so close... *sigh*

Love ya~

Hi Nicole! I'm a frequent lurker of your blog, and I love your book lists. I've gotten lots of good reads from your suggestions. Just thought I'd pass along a title I recently finished and thought was fantastic and right up your alley--The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. If you get the chance to read it, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
Love the pics by the way.
