A Wedding & Shop Updates

I cannot believe how swamped I have been lately!  It seems like I keep pushing things back and not getting much done so therefore I am going to do a bit of catching up, starting with this blog! 

On August 7th my friends, Kelly and Mark had a lovely wedding here in St. Louis at Forest Park in the Jewel Box.  An absolutely fabulous location, just add family and friends with a beautiful bride and handsome groom and it makes for a wonderful celebration!  I want to share some photos that I took of the special occasion.

2nd half of vacation photos and a New Give-Away!

Here are a few photos of the 2nd leg of my trip.  After Maine came a trip to North Carolina and Virginia. I had a really good time with some wonderful friends and my cousin, Dana.  We took the ferry over to Williamsburg, VA and then spent some time in Colonial Williamsburg exploring.  I will hold this trip close to my heart for so many different reasons.
