Here comes the sun

Some photos that I took this week of my lovely friend Katie. She has such a fun chic style. P.S. do you see that green stuff in the background? Yeah, it is called grassI almost forgot it existed. Oh, and other good news, I am currently looking for plane tickets to Germany! Can't wait!

Caution: high waters

Here are some more of the photos from the wedding in this post. So my husband and I just got back from a really wonderful trip to D.C. with the family...to a completely flooded apartment. They tore up all the floors and portions of the walls and currently have heavy duty fans drying the framework. I think my favorite part of all of this was having 6 fully grown men, wearing waders and gloves, going through my clothing—well, uh, that’s not awkward. Anyway, we now have most of our belongings in a nice large pile quarantined from the contamination. Life. Is. Good. No really, it is. I think these experiences really help put life in perspective; a lot of this stuff just doesn’t matter. Besides, let’s look on the bright side, the terrible yellowing 60’s vinyl on the kitchen floor went completely unharmed. That stuff truly is invincible. I am thinking of contacting the army, because they should really consider using it for tank material.

A tribute to Mom

Since it is Mother's Day I just wanted to post a few pictures of my beautiful mother. She is one of the prettiest people I have ever known and definitely the sweetest (it is true, ask anyone). She is the type of person you need to be careful around because anytime you compliment something of hers she gives it to you. Over the years she has been one of my very closest friends, my top clothing/style/boy advisor and my biggest fan. Well, Mom, you may not know this, but I am your biggest fan. Thanks for listening to me rave on about the 12 year old in Church that I found adorable (all 4 foot 2 inches of him), and for picking me up from ballet every other day, and for telling me I was the most beautiful girl around when in reality I was an awkward 13-and-a-half-year-old with a too-short-haircut. Love you more than you know! Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom in the world!

crystal quartz charm"ing" necklace

So, here is one of my newer designs. This necklace features a beautiful crystal quartz stone surrounded by a little coin and feather. Everything hangs from an antiqued brass chain. To order click here.

So this last December we had family photos taken and I just barely saw our couple shots this last week for the first time! Ha ha, apparently I didn't get the "we are taking a funny picture now" memo. Oh well, I still like it love it, actually, even better than our more serious photo. I mean, who can resist the "smolder"?
