Maternity Session

Hello hello! I haven't posted in awhile and I wasn't sure if I would post again. But I had some really lovely maternity/pregnancy photos taken by one of my best friends Laura and I really wanted to share them. These were taken at 38 weeks and I have approximately only a week to go until my little is here :)

We went to a local park that had some great woodland style trees and I borrowed the dress. Laura also had the flower crowns made and our other friend Erin also came to help out. I wasn't going to have any photos done but I'm so glad I did to mark this special time in my life.

So there might be a baby post next time! Have a wonderful weekend.

A new Adventure

Hello hellooo! I know it's been months since I last had a post. I wasn't sure if I would even come back to blogging. Right now I should be in Europe with some of my favourite girls (another thing I hadn't blogged about) but instead I have a different adventure awaiting :) Baby S will be making an appearance in February. If you follow me on Instagram (@graciebellabutterfly if you want to follow) or Facebook you may have already seen this news.

I'm excited, anxious and it's a whole new adventure. It wasn't exactly planned (hence my Europe trip) but it's something we have discussed and I guess it was the right time :) Jason and I have taken this week off work to do some major house cleaning and prepping the soon to be nursery.

I hope to blog more about the whole experience and would love to hear your thoughts.

So that concludes my Girls Trip. An utterly life changing experience and I'm so glad I was able to go. I'm actually thinking of going on another girls trip this year. More about that later.

Have a wonderful rest of week.

USA Trip 2013 - Savannah, Georgia

Hello lovely people. From Raleigh, North Carolina we started our road trip to Savannah, Georgia. We drove through South Carolina on our way. 

1. Road trip snacks (one of the best parts I think) 
2. Galloway House the beautiful plantation house we stayed in 
3. The outside deck at night 
4. The beautiful dining room 
5. The king bed room 
6. An Australian flag to say some Aussies were staying here (thought this was really lovely)
7. Archway 
8. Savannah Moss
9. Old staircase 
10. The Wandering Madman (he survives with donations. He was awesome)

I wish we could've spent more time here. The plantation house was so pretty and we spent one of our days reading in the lounge room and the sunroom. It was so relaxing. 

Only a few more posts to come :) Have a good weekend.
