There’s a baby in there.

And 20 bucks says it’s a darn cute one.:)

‘Cause baby has one HOT MAMA!

Jen and Ray decided to not find out the sex, but just look at that belly!

It is OBVIOUSLY a girl.

I mean definitely a boy.

Or something.

Sweet Jennifer.  My sister from another mister.  (well, another mama, too…but where’s the rhyming fun in THAT?)

Jennifer is one of four amazingly beautiful, statuesque, silly, kind, and downright DELIGHTFUL sisters.  It has been such a pleasure to know them all!  I have a feeling that this baby is just the first of MANY in the next generation for this family.

Baby Miller, although we are all uncertain if there is blue or pink in the future, one thing is for darn sure – your awesome mom and fun-tastical dad could not love you any more!  Their excitement for your arrival is almost tangible.  We can’t wait to meet you!!

P.S.  And for the record, my official vote is boy. I’m probably certain about that.

Layla Grace Marsh (how you can help!)

Dear friends,

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the heartbreaking story of sweet Layla Grace Marsh.  www.laylagrace.org Her story has captured the hearts of so many of us over the past year, and the news of her passing on March 9th was simply devastating.

If you’re like me, you want a way to offer support to this grieving family.  I’ve recently been re-introduced to the Tupperware company through my dear friend, and Tupperware consultant, Elizabeth Boyd.  I am excited to have the chance to organize a simple fundraiser through Tupperware to benefit the Marsh family.  Attached is a link to a special fundraising catalog.  As you will quickly see, Tupperware has come a long way since the days of the burping, burnt-orange containers in our mother’s cabinets!  There are many fun, functional (and I daresay fashionable) products available to choose from.  The best part? Tupperware will donate 40% of all sales directly to the family of Layla Grace.  Their mounting medical debt is undoubtedly overwhelming, and I know that any assistance they receive is a blessing.

All orders can be placed and paid for online, and the products will be delivered directly to you.  Please take a moment to click on the link below and consider making a purchase.  Not only will you be delighted with your new Tupperware, but you will be supporting a precious family in need during their darkest days.  The last day to order for the fundraiser is this Friday, March 19th, so please don’t hesitate!

Please share this link with anyone and everyone!  If you have any questions about products or the fundraiser itself, don’t hesitate to ask.

With love,
Janica Boles

Cassie and Rick

I dare say that Spring (and loooove) is in the air.


Cassie and Rick, much like the newly budding flowers, are a breath of fresh air.

And they’re dang cute, too.

I wish they would just loosen up…

Cassie.  Gorgeous.

Did you happen to notice the laughter in these pictures?  I just adore a couple who can share giggles, snorts, and belly laughs with the greatest of ease.  Cassie and Rick made arrangements with the lovely folks at the Showboat Drive-in Movie Theater to hold our session there.  We had the run of the place!   We dodged some rain showers and may have pretended that it was warmer than it really was…but all in all, it was GOOD TIMES.  Cassie is best buddies with my best buddy, Alicia.  It was so fun to re-connect with an old friend of a friend.

(Well that’s just silly, Janica.  After all these years, I’d say Cassie has officially graduated to a first-generation friend.;))

Cassie and Rick, I can’t wait to hear all about your amazing Hawaiian wedding ceremony.  It all sounds completely magical.

♡ As it should be. ♡

So cute! Some of those last ones remind me of the movie theater scene in Grease (in a good way!) Love them!

These pictures are adorable…of course I’m probably not the most objective person! You guys reallyn do photograph well. Make sure we get some of these!

Awwwww, how cute are they? I just all goose-pimply. Love, love is in the air. It is so wonderfully evident in your images, Janica!

[...] Time sure flies, huh Cassie and Rick? [...]
