Oh, there are those glasses! What a happy little post. You look ever so beautiful with your little happy go lucky outfit. I also love that ole train depot. I would love to buy it and open a restaurant. What would we call it Hudson's Choo Choo or just The Old Depot? Anyway great pictures and I am going to do my best at the words at the bottom.

LOVE YOU!!!

Are those real glasses? Or just for fun? They are cute regardless and require some immediately! My hubaloo would think I was crazy for wearing them, but for that degree of coolness, I don't really care... So tell me!

Raven said...

beautiful words. your blog always inspires me :)

this reminds me of this last weekend, when I was in Hell, or should I say vacation, and as we were on our way to hell, or should I say the amusement park, we passed an old barn that looked JUST like the one in these pics (that is a barn, right?) and we were going to stop but then decided that we would stop on the way back.

however, the whole day at the amusement park was HELL so we wanted to book it home as soon as possible.

and now I'm pissed we didn't stop cause these pictures are so awesome!!!

LV said...

i think this is one of the cutest shoots you've ever done Ashley! i'm diggin' the stripes with madras shorts, plus the location is really something. makes those colors pop right off the page! did Will take these? they're magnificent shots, the angles and compositions really so stellar. or, well, AWESOME! top knot and 4 eyes makes me happy. xoox ♥
