Changes. . .

Everything changes...

Buildings, People, Organizations
Personalities, Circumstances, Ages,
Addresses, Signatures, Families
Even Landscapes (Old Man on the Mountain!)

Every situation is different and unique.

My life has truly changed over the last few years. . .
It has become obvious that some of the things/people from my past are also changing. . .
Some things still fit.
Some don't.
In retrospect, some things that didn't fit a few years ago are now working again.

Every situation is different and unique.

I am finding that it is now time to release and let go. . .
Some goodbyes are difficult as the memories are so sweet.
So, I need to concentrate on the memories and continue on my journey.

Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

I must say that we hit the jackpot with our photographer!

Christie had wonderful picture ideas and takes gorgeous photos!
By the time the wedding got here, it truly felt like we had a friend taking the photos.
We were blessed that Christie's husband was there as the second photographer and I must say that both were wonderful to work with!

She does have wedding packages (gotta love the "something old", "something new" theme), but is very willing to customize the packages to fit within your budget / wedding (at least she did with us!).

If you are looking for a Wedding Photographer - Please head over to Gardner Photography and give their galleries a look and see what you think!

We're Married!

Yep, we did it!

10/9/10 is now a date that NEITHER of us should forget. :)

Here are some shots from our big day:

The vase that was our alter and then became the centerpiece for our "spiral stair" cakes.
Our "table cards". . .When the small plastic piece got pulled out, they lit up with a white light.
The candles on the wedding party table with my bouquet.
The centerpieces, quotes and favor boxes on the guest tables.
The bottom cake. Three of the tiers had this swirl design and the other two just had the edible white and black pearls.
Lots of cake! Spice w/ Apple, Red Velvet, Chocolate w/ Chocolate Mousse, Strawberry, Cheesecake, and Yellow. . .With mini cheesecake squares.

I'll try to share more later as people send me pics.
Nope - I didn't take one picture that day!!

Things got so hectic around our house that I created a family calendar.
It was for August, September and October and each day had four lines - one for each member of the family.

In August and September:
There were days that had so much written on it that I still couldn't keep track of what was going on.
There may have been a stray Sunday here and there that was open, but for the most part, every day was full.

Then, we get to October:
The first two rows (the last week of September was included in the first row) were JAMMED packed.
Did I mention how JAMMED packed they are?

Then. . .


I think there are three days with something on them, but very few words.

I'm thinking it may be a little eery.
