An Afternoon Tea Party

Photobucket Another incredible weekend has come and gone. This time, it was to celebrate one of my best friends as she will be getting married to the man of her dreams in early September. It was the perfect afternoon as family and friends gathered to celebrate her! Considering for the past 8 years or so she has made Europe her home, with most of her time spent in England, we found it most fitting to celebrate this time with an afternoon "Mad Hatter's" tea party! Photobucket Everyone who attended was to bring and wear a sun hat in honor of her, the tea party, and the celebration! The details were awesome, from mismatched china tea sets,to tea pots, scones with jam and all the trimmings...it truly was an authentic garden Mad Hatter's tea party. Shyla, I hope it was everything and more you had imagined for your bridal shower! Of course, knowing us girlies, an afternoon tea party ends up being an all night dance till your feet bleed kind of night...which was exactly how our night ended up unfolding in the end. A bride-to-be always has to have that one last "night on the town" with her girls, and we definitely had that! So much fun, so many laughs, there truly is nothing like times spent like these. I love my girls so much! Cannot wait to celebrate with you all again in September! xoxo Photobucket

Opportunities

Photobucket There is nothing like having "one of those days". And today was "one of those days..." but all in a GOOD and PERFECT way. I think one of the things that makes photography so special for me is that I kind of get to be that little "fly on the wall" that allows me to spend quality time with amazing people who let me in to their world and their story. I think it is even more special when those people are family already and they choose me to record their treasured moments. A special thank you to my beautiful cousin and her husband who are expecting their first child in early September. I could not have thought of a better way to spend my Sunday than with you guys, catching up and recording moments. I hope you love them, there are many many more! Love you guys!

Where Will I Be in 10 Years???

Photobucket Wow...it has been awhile since I have posted really anything other than photography. So much has been going on lately between work, life, family, photos etc. that I kind of lost track of time somewhere along the line. Speaking of busy and having things going on...my 10 year high school reunion was this past weekend. Seriously??? Where will I be in 10 years...that simple thought, that I really remember wondering about on the day of our high school grad, and that we had often joked about together...hard to believe that 10 years is NOW! Long ago were the days of no responsibility, endless time with friends, no bills, only homework and social lives to look after...wow. How far away have those days gone. This past weekend was our high school reunion for the class of 2000. It was such a great time. The weekend pretty much started on July 1st, Canada day. My best friends little guy turned one years old, so we celebrated his birthday with the perfect party on the most awesome day. The weather was gorgeous and it was such a nice day to relax and catch up with everyone. It was such a great birthday party! So much fun. On Friday Matt and I had a BBQ so we were able to catch up even more with one another. So many laughs...that is pretty much how I could sum up the night. Laugh laugh laugh. It felt so good to just be back together with friends who are so real, honest and always there no matter what. It is so awesome to know that no matter what the distance, or how long ago it was since we had last talked, we can always just catch up like it was yesterday. Which maybe why it is so surreal that 10 years has passed since our graduation from high school. We have all accomplished so much since those days and I am so proud of everyone. Whether it be career achievements, family achievements, or personal achievements, we have all grown in so many ways. It has not always been easy and we have definitley had our share of difficult moments, but for the most part I think we are all doing awesome for ourselves. I also have to say that I have always felt so blessed to know and share friendships with such awesome girls. They truly are such amazing women and NO MATTER WHAT...we all just get each other and love each other unconditionally. We have the best times together, so many laughs and such a rich history with one another that our friendships are truly irreplaceable. I love you girls! To be honest, I am still trying to wrap my head around that we had just celebrated our 10 year, but am very excited at the same time. The past 10 years have been such a time of change, growth and anticipation as we all begin this next phase of our "grown-up" lives...here is to the next 10! It is scary to think that that time will be here before we know it too...hmmm....where will we all be then???
