Happy birthday, Unlocking Litchfield!

Happy birthday to us!! Unlocking Litchfield is two and we threw ourselves a mini birthday party (sorry you weren’t invited 😉)!

To celebrate this milestone our party included a few of our favorite things…

📷 A photo shoot with our friend Allie Dearie Photography (we never get to be in pics together, so this was a treat).

💄  A professional makeup session with Linda Temkin, founder and creative director of Lulu | the face company, based in Litchfield.

👗 Pretty new dresses from Lord & Taylor.

🎂 The pinkest and most delicious cupcakes from Amanda Bakes.

🎈And of course, balloons!

Since we schedule our features about 1-2 months out, we had anticipated fields and fields of lovely yellow daffodils at Laurel Ridge, but that was not to be, thanks to Mother Nature and her cold spring blast. Still a beautiful location, we happily traipsed through daffodil buds (we’re heading back in a couple of weeks to see the full beauty and you should too)!

Of course, no party is complete without Amanda Bakes creations! They not only look good, they taste even better.

Typical: Lora’s sweet tooth got the better of her before Allie had a chance to shoot these pink beauties (heh, the cupcakes, not us).
