The wedding

Here I am!

Last week I had a photoshoot for my business picture with the wonderful Carolyn of Carolyn Troadec Photography
for my currently-under-construction website.

Carolyn was so wonderful to work with! Along with being a great photographer and a very kind person, her background as a model really helps out with the pictures that she takes--she is an awesome 'coach' and gives clear directions for what angles & body positions work the best for you. Every girl needs Carolyn!

Autumn Dreams

My wedding season ended with weddings this past weekend. They went beautifully and I can't wait to see pictures and to blog about them. They were FABULOUS. Now I have time to breathe and reflect and get a little bit homesick for Ozark Autumns. Ah, Fall. One of my favorite times of year. The end of the summer and beginning of the sparkling holidays.

Living in Los Angeles is exciting and stimulating, but I miss the seasons. I miss hiking through blazing red forests with my dog, seeing our breathe hang in the air, and smelling woodsmoke coming from fireplaces of other homes in the valley. I also do like waxing nostalgic. Ah, Fall.

Now that my weddings are over for now, it's time to (book more!) tackle projects around my home and reintroduce myself to my friends. The life of a wedding coordinator=NO WEEKENDS!

So in honor of the Fall that I am missing, my husband and I are creating one in Los Angeles tonight in our 80 degree weather. We're hosting a comfort food potluck (mashed potatoes! rum & cider! cornbread & stuffing! apple pie!) with our friends then going to a harvest festival at a pumkin patch about 30 minutes away from us. One of the great things about LA: you can find anything you want! Today I want a haunted cornmaze at a pumkin patch and a small-town-ish festival with kids already in their halloween costumes pulling wagons of pumpkins. Happy Halloween, everyone!

Toilet Paper Wedding Dresses

While I'm not usually one to forward on any of the silly, sad, or stupid mass emails that fill my inbox everyday from friends and family, this one is worth blogging about:

In memory of Grandma Jean

My Grandmother passed away yesterday at noon. She passed in her sleep at my aunt's house surrounded by her children and her kitty cat Tilly purring next to her. She lived a full and wonderful life filled with children and grandchildren whom she doted on and adored.

Each of us are bringing our favorite picture to display at her service, and while I have literally hundreds, I'm bringing this one. It represents to me the happiest and most love-filled day of my life. I'm so thankful that she and I were able to share it together.
