Finally a post or three!

It's been a minute since I've had the time to sit down and collect my thoughts.  August began as the slowest month and quickly turned into one of the busiest.  Part of this was my time in Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana & Wisconsin.  Part of that was holidays at lakes & camping, the other half just plain work.  Luckily for me, work is really quite fun and the range is open.  For example, once again I was honored to work on a beautiful photography collaboration with the two wonderfully talented Jaclyn Simpson & Jenn Kathryn.  This time around we worked with Jessie and her husband Eric on their five year (!!!) wedding anniversary shoot.

Suzy from Lily Red Design created beautiful paper pieces, including a lunch menu for Jessie & Eric's picnic and a reprint of their original vows.  There will absolutely be more photos, but in the meantime I snapped a few of the amazing couple.  However.., really can't wait to see what Jaclyn & Jenn show!

Their love for each other is kind of addicting.

You really have no idea how hard it was for them because of all the mosquitos.  No kidding.

But between all this travel, we've still been working on weddings and deliveries and staying quite busy.  Aside from lots of new items in the storefront (lots of goodies to purchase, such as Saipua Soaps, vintage glassware, scented candles...), we've just been having so much fun.  In fact, this might be the most fun I've personally ever had in August!

Wildflower bouquets and centerpieces seem to be the hit of the season, and here are a few, in blue, that Caleb created.

It's refreshing to see this palette in mid-summer.  Not to say I'm not in love with glowing yellows, peach, mustards, pinks and other summer colors.., it's just a nice mix into the overall season.

And I am completely in love with Caleb's color descriptions of sperm whale and desert.  They make me want to travel, look at picture books, sit in the park and sketch and move to an island to fish.  He is a painter, and an amazing one at that.
