Sweet Child O'Mine

So my birthday was a few weeks ago. It's hard to imagine that I'm 26 years old, sometimes I forget my age and find myself asking my husband just to be sure. I still think I'm 22 or 23. It doesn't seem all that long ago that I was.

The reason I bring up the inevitable aging, is because the beautiful Kara sent me 'via' etsy a lovely gift.

It's so pretty and unique, I LOVE it. And I always love getting surprises in the mail. This piece was made by Gina Zetts, and if you'd like to see more of her work you can visit her etsy shop;

The pregnancy so far, has left me exhausted, sick and feeling like a whale of a person, because my friends requested the chance to see the expansion of my belly as my sweet baby grows here's a shot taken today, at the end of my 20th week.

Wedding Bells

I suppose it's finally time to post a few shots from the beautiful wedding of my stunning friend Kara that I helped out with in November. There were sooooo many great photos, I wish I had time and patience to post a lot more.

Here's a shot by the hugely talented Rocky Strong, who can be found at, who was also our wedding photographer. It's hard to believe that he does this simply as a part-time, after-school job!

A fantastic shot of Kara and her husband, Ryan. I love this shot, it's perfect in so many ways. I wish I could be back in town with her and our other friends for a few days, visiting downtown cafes and 24 hour restaurants.

A photo of the bride and myself, after she had finished some family photos, and I had been busy deconstructing the 'reception' area. This is our fun 'Betty Boop' faces, we don't typically make this face for all photos.

Here's her wedding cake I constructed for her. I love the orchids!! She has such fantastic taste in flowers. The entire wedding was blooming.
