Happy Mother's Day...and the giveaway WINNER!

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
~Abraham Lincoln

I'm sure many of you are familiar with this quote by President Lincoln.  It's such a simple, yet beautiful sentiment to his mother.  It's incredible that he attributes his every success, and all of his future aspirations to her.  What a remarkable woman she must have been.  I kind of want to hug her right now.

How was your Mother's Day?  Good, I hope!

I got to enjoy mine a little early.  I spent Friday afternoon at the library editing pictures (all by my lonesome)!  It was awesome!  Then had a fabulous dinner from China Blue (my fav). 

Saturday morning was our CARDV 5k walk (pictures to come).  It was so fabulous...great company, great cause, great(ish) weather (ok, it didn't start down pouring until we were done, so that's a good thing)!  Then I headed out with 5 other ladies to the Corvallis Nail Spa and had a pedicure and hot stone massage...SO WONDERFUL!  But that's for another blog post!

Speaking of amazing's time to announce the winner of the Mother's Day giveaway!  I'm so excited!!!

Congratulations to Nichole whose comment: "Entry 1: I liked your page a while ago!! Love it!!" was chosen by!

It seriously couldn't have worked out any better, because her recent maternity session was the one I was posting tonight!

 Nichole and Ben are expecting their first bundle of joy in a few weeks!  What mommy-to-be couldn't use a little pampering?  Congratulations!!

Seriously, so beautiful!

Did I mention how cute they are?

It's a BOY!  And I love the name they have picked out!

Definitely one of my favs

Congrats Nichole on all accounts!  I'll send your gift certificate to you tomorrow!

Happy Mother's Day to all and to all a good night!

Fantastic pictures, Stephanie!!!! Wow. You really are talented. We should have gotten a kissing picture of Todd and I! It would have embarrassed him, and I would have loved it! :-)

Thank you for all your hard work Stephanie! I LOVE our pictures! AND I never win anything...I am SO excited for my pedicure! I haven't gotten one since I got pregnant so it will be perfect timing right before Liam arrives. Thanks so much!
