...but they looked so happy you didn't really need a good lens to show that.
This is my coworker, friend, and hopefully my future neighbor, Carron. She was a beautiful bride - just stunning! The reception took place in the Peabody Library in downtown Baltimore and it was unbelievable. Looked like something out of the movies. Carron and Ben are big readers, so it couldn't have been more appropriate.
...Sigh...I just love weddings...
And now the newlyweds are off for two weeks in Europe. While I sit here in my office wishing my lunch buddy would hurry on home already.
...Named Dad this weekend. Who happens to be an awesome photographer. He's most of the reason why I have so many incredible photographs of my childhood years. We started out the day at my school campus...I'm not sure I've ever shared pictures of where I work, but it's high on top of a hill outside of Baltimore. This is my "office" building:
And this is the beautiful chapel, with an inside just as beautiful:
And then we finished up the day with a potential Christmas card photo...Hence the wool sweater (Charmer was intent on a squirrel in the neighbors yard - what good timing!)
I'm home today - I work for an Episcopalian school yet we have Yom Kippur off work. I won't complain. There's something about being off work when (most) of the rest of the world is working. I feel like I'm breaking a rule. Walked into my kitchen this morning and loved seeing the sunlight coming in the window.
I am falling in love with this house. For awhile it seemed impossible. There was SO much to do. But it's really coming together. I come home at night and I love being here.
All these decorating blogs have kicked me into high gear. I love Decor8, but does anyone know of any blogs/shopping sites that give suggestions for cottage-like decor? I love my Cottage Living magazine. I'm specifically looking for assistance with a huge built-in bookshelf that I just am.not.happy.with.
