a weekend in cincy | julius turns one

fresh valentines flowers from gia & the blooms

we traveled to cincinnati over the weekend to celebrate my adorable nephew, julius imoh, turning one. i think about this a lot. there isn't much that tops being together with your loved ones- watching the littles play and catching up over coffee and laughing/reminiscing and just being. 

ready to party + julius is one!  
these two are too cute together:
i am pretty sure boards + bowls could be my forever foods
he picked off each sprinkle- one at a time on his smash cake
the cutest little nugget 
lane and kate was the such an elegant fine jewelry shop

i love this little lady so very much
we used that little birthday bear for parks' first birthday too 
boards & beez made the most delicious (and gorgeous) charcuterie + veggie spreads
my brother and his wife were also in town from denver
sunday was a slow day- and it was wonderful. my sister and i strolled the boutiques (they are the most stunning/eclectic shops) in over-the-rhine on vine street. i can't get over how much cincinnati has changed over the past decade- i have always loved it- but it's just so amazing now. just so good. so many great areas + artsy influences. spending time with my sister while my parents watched the kids (their dream these days) was just what i think we all needed. we strolled, got fresh juice, met new people, enjoyed a mani/pedi and then had wine at oakley wines with our husbands for an afternoon double-date. finally, we ended the night with spicy ethnic takeout (fave) + being together was the best. 
can you even with all of this?!
i could not get over the creative displays in these shops!!

these two are always so hard to leave 
love them with all my heart.
