alrighty! here’s the last of the photos from charlottesville!
and who knew so many of you have connections to charlottesville or UVA! so cool. it’s definitely a little city i wouldn’t mind ending up in… but maybe that’s because it’s ten o’clock at night right now and while i should be heading to bed, all i can think about is a bodo’s bagel. ;)

…and here are a few instagrams from charlottesville.

    Your pictures are beautiful!I especially love your outfit with the jean jacket, white dress, and heels. I've been to the downtown mall there and really enjoyed the quaint feel of the area.

  45. You are the most stylish mummy to be I ve ever seen!!!!Love your blog!kisses

  46. I have been reading your blog for so long now but I don't ever comment. Your little family are gorgeous and I think you must have the most photogenic baby ever- my little girl is a tiny bit older than eleanor and you cannot get her to look at the camera now she is walking!


  47. Sylvie

    You are all so darling. You sure rock the belly well! And your bag. I love that bag. I've been looking around for one just like it, to use for my camera. Would you mind sayin where its from? I'd be pleased!

  49. Nisha

    These pictures are adorable!

  50. Adelyn

    I grew up in Charlottesville and moved away less than a year ago. Seeing you in some of my favorite places (downtown mall…the lawn…monticello…and definitely Bodo's!) makes me so crazy sad and happy at the same time. :) The city is beautiful – downtown especially! Did you stop at the chaps on the downtown mall? It's a favorite of mine! I love that town.

  52. Emily

    Butter makes everything better. E is on the right track. Haha

  53. eleanor smelling the flower…oh my goodness. she is no longer a little baby; she is her own little person!

  54. that photo of you with the umbrella is one of your cutest yet! i just think you look so beautiful pregnant. you are glowing. (and eleanor sticking her dear face into that flower is pretty priceless.)

  55. Sum

    The picture of E and the red tulip is by far my favourite. :)

  56. Ohhh that's just too cute! I LOVE you and your adorable family! You're not lucky, you're blessed!

    Here is my blog if you want to take a look!


  57. The moments you capture are just absolutely decadent! I wish I could get in that habit of snapping at all times – it's something I am constantly trying to get better at. Document, document, document.

  58. Your trip looks lovely. Such a cute town.

    Little E looks as adorable as ever.

    C x

  59. I love the flowers that you put in E's hair. Can I ask where you get them at? I just found out I am having a little girl in September!

  60. Haha.. I love reading your blog! Your family is so gorgeous and I'm always inspired, whether through fashion, traveling, cooking, babies! or whatever! Thanks so much for a little glimpse into your life! :)

  61. Beautiful pictures!
    I'm a huge fan of yours!

  62. Looks like you all eat at some mighty fine places! You should put together a city guide with your fave. places…. ;) Thanks for sharing!

  63. cami

    you always have the cutest pictures! Where and when is your little sister serving her mission? I just got my mission call to Pocatello Idaho!

  64. This warms my heart! I live in Cville and took my husband to the Local for his birthday. It was so delish. And Bodos, oh Bodos. Someone's always bringing bagels into the office and the smell drives me wild. Happy to see you had a charming weekend!

  65. Anna

    haha I see a little butter mustache. :) what a cutie.

  66. Abby

    Love that you visited! I live on the same street as The Local. It's wonderful to be able to walk there (although probably not so wonderful for our wallets). Glad that you had a nice time here!

  67. I'm visiting a friend in Charlottesville at the end of May, i can't wait to see what you've snapped! Looks so fun!

  68. So cute Taza.
    Thank you for sharing all these cute pictures of your family.

  69. Lauren

    mmhm! love charlottesville and Bodo's!

  70. Mandy

    Being born and raised in Charlottesville, there is nothing else I have ever had that can compare to a Bodo's bagel! Glad you enjoyed the city!

  71. your hair is amazing in the picture of you with the unbrella and that picture of eleanor smelling the tulip is precious!

  72. Lisa

    I live in C'ville and have a funny Bodo's story: when I was in childbirth class wiht my first daughter, the instructor used different comparisons for dilation. For 10 cm, she said it was "like the size of a Bodo's bagel!". Ever since then, every time I go to or drive past a Bodo's, I think of being 10cm dilated LOL!

    Glad you had such a nice time in our lovely city!

  73. Daisy

    I moved away from Charlottesville last year – I miss it so much!

  74. love Cvegas! my hometown!

  75. Krista

    I just discovered your blog this morning. It's so precious! I love Charlottesville, too. That tulip pic is just too much.
