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? [...]



We shot a rocket today…what did you do?:)

The following video was shot during the rocket’s maiden voyage.  Please note my panic and instant camera-drop in the moments following lift-off when I was 95% certain that the rocket was going to come crashing down on my daughter’s head.  Moments later, however, the parachute dislodged and the rocket drifted gracefully, and harmlessly, to the ground.  My triumphant “WHOA!” is when I realized we were in the clear.
