Okay, so it’s Wednesday.  It took me almost three days to write this.  That is what things are like around here right now. — Anne & Joe’s wedding day was magnificent.  Perfect light and even more perfect weather.  And to boot, it was relaxed and easy, with a great schedule that flowed effortlessly.  Congrats Anne […]

Last week I did my first bridal show, Indie Wed.  It was a fun, colorful whirlwind.  I met a bunch of great couples with such lovely plans ahead of them.  And, I got to hang out with a few old friends and make some new ones too.  The Harley Davidson Museum was a great host, […]

This last weekend we were lucky enough to have my good friend Melissa in town.  Since she is someone we don’t see often enough, blogging took a backseat.  So, today is Monday for us around here.  One of the many perks of being self-employed! — So Sloane got to meet her Aunt Mel for the […]
