This weekend flew by. My older sister and her family came to visit from the bay area and we surprised my niece with a trip to Disneyland for her 9th birthday. The fun continued last night when I got to watch the finale of my favorite show (Mad Men) with the show’s cast and writer/creator. The weekend was such a whirlwind that I am happy to have a few snapshots to remember some of the special moments from the festivities.

Being able to celebrate with my niece and getting to experience Disneyland through her eyes was one of the best times I’ve had in a while.

I loved these two costumes from the season. Costume designer Janie Bryant was at the event and looked adorable. I talked with her about how many of the costumes are her original designs, while others are vintage pieces she finds and tweaks.
This weekend was so special, but also exhausting. I can’t wait to just stay home, relax and avoid making plans for the next week or two.
