Endeavor Wealth Advisory Group Logo and Marketing Materials

This year I teamed up with Endeavor Wealth Advisory Group to complete their in-progress logo and deliver a variety of stationary and marketing products to support their new business.

Pieces included: logo (vertical and horizontal formats) and brand color palette, business cards, letterhead, various size envelopes, notepad, banner, brochure, office signs and event invitations.

It's so important to create a complete professional identity package, at every point of communication, to help your business shine. Implementing custom designs, to multiple applications is a favorite part of my job!

Weston's One Year Photo Series

I know I keep saying this, but I can't believe Weston's first year of monthly photos are complete! The way he changed from being a dark haired chubby cheeked baby to a light haired thinned out little toddler amazes me. He looks so different now! I'm so glad that I was able to continue this photo tradition, but truth be told, it was a lot harder to accomplish the second time around! It started out a little rocky and I had to make modifications along the way. Plus add in a photo-bombing older brother and lack of good lighting, etc. etc. But I just love looking at these images, with Weston's baby rolls smiles and cuteness overload! I seriously wish I could go back to each one of these stages and squeeze him all over again.

Weston is ONE

Our little sweetie is ONE year old! I'm still not sure how an entire year has gone by already. Weston is the best gift our family could ever dream of. He is sweet and spunky and funny and down right adorable. As well as extremely determined to get what he wants, smart, fast and ready to be involved in everything. To say that we love him is an understatement. 

We spent as much time as we could outside this November and enjoyed playing in the leaves. Weston is walking and getting faster and faster! He's definitely trying to keep up with his big brother.

We took a trip to Gigi and Poppi's house to celebrate early Thanksgiving with the Ohl's. 

On Weston's actual birthday, we celebrated as a family by going to the Strong Museum of Play. It was Weston's first time being able to walk around and really engage in the activities. He loved it! That evening, we enjoyed cupcakes and opening gifts. 

That weekend, we celebrated with our extended family and participated in the Parent and Child Dedication at our church. It was so special that it coincided with Weston's first birthday and we were blessed to be surrounded by family from near and far. 

After church, we partied with lunch and dessert for the birthday boy! Such a happy occasion.

Getting this little mover to sit still for any photos was quite the feat! He's usually so smiley but I think he gets camera shy. And then wants to grab the camera! 

I looked forward to dressing him in the "1" onesie that I made for Marshall and posing him in the same highchair. How cute are these brothers? I can't even wrap my head around how much Marshall has grown, because I feel like I was just taking his first birthday photos. Time, please slow down. Just a little. I love these boys so much my heart could explode! 

Happy birthday, Weston! You are very loved by so many. You are the absolute best addition to our family and I thank God for you every single day. It has been quite a year! You constantly amaze me and make me laugh. Thank you for all the joy and love you bring. We can't wait to see what you do next, baby boy!

Weston Month Eleven

E L E V E N Months. I've been procrastinating posting this one because I know what comes next month and I'm not ready for that to happen yet AT ALL. This photo shoot was pretty much a flop and the most challenging one yet! My poor baby wasn't feeling well with a runny nose. But we tried. The basket was just not happening. We did get some fun pictures outside one fall afternoon. Just look at this sweet little pumpkin!

October was a big month for Weston. He took his first real steps and started learning how to walk! We found out that he is allergic to eggs, which we suspected after he would break out in a topical rash after eating eggs. Thankfully, it is one of the "easier" allergies to manage and he might grow out of it as he gets older. 

We had some gorgeous days with apple picking, walks at the park, and time at the playground! 

Marshall and Weston continue to grow their bond as brothers and love to wrestle and be completely silly! And adorable.

We attended Marshall's first school field trip to a pumpkin farm with a hayride on a very cold but sunny day.

Weston loves to stand, walk, ride in a wagon, get pulled around on a blanket and rummage through the kitchen cupboards. 

We just love his sweet personality and he brings so much joy to our family!

Marshall Starts Preschool

In September, our big three-and-a-half-year-old started preschool! I can hardly believe I'm saying that. Two days a week, at the Christian school where I went to elementary and junior high. It's surreal to be back there, now with my own child! So far, he's doing great. I'm enjoying hearing the songs he's learning and having lots of construction paper pictures and crafts to hang on the wall. Marshall really is mature for his age and the social interaction and structure is so good for him. He's been carrying on adult-like conversations with us for so long, sometimes I forget that he's only 3.5! We love you sweet Marshall! Learn, and grow and do great things!  

Bookworm brothers (hopefully)!
