wedding weekend celebration

Things will be a bit light on the blog this week as we are recovering from a few days of wedding celebrations with our friends. I officially photographed the bridal henna and Friday evening welcome (rehearsal) dinner for the wedding, but then was off duty during the wedding, although I helped grab some video with my camera set up on my tripod. It was a busy few days of wedding activities and it’ll take me a bit of time to go through all the photos. We had a blast!

my first quilt

I finished my first quilt! Can you believe it?! It seemed to take forever, but delayed a bit by feeling morning (all-day) sickness. I attempted to make a quilt a while back, but that one proved a bit too difficult and mentally draining for my first quilt. Read more…
