One of Those Weeks

Hello. It's been one of those weeks. Work is terrible / busy / stressful. I'm sure you've been there if you aren't there right now. I feel like I might just pass out at any given moment. 

On a much more cheerful note, my amazing mom is finishing her 6-month hike on the Appalachian Trail this weekend! I am so proud of her! If you would like to read about her incredible adventure, you can check out her trail journal. She hiked all the way from Georgia to Maine, starting in March and ending this Saturday. My dad is on his way up to Maine to pick her up at the finish line!

Weekend Recap

Hello there. Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Here's how we spent ours...

Sadie and Georgia had to get baths on Saturday. We went to a DIY place down the street from our house. It was like a doggy spa! But our girls were not too impressed. 

Saturday night, we went on a date to one of our favorite places in Fort Collins, Restaurant 415. They have the best mac'n'cheese. Period. 

Here's a little video of how much Georgia enjoyed her bath! :)

Happy Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! Got any fun plans? M and I went to breakfast at our favorite bakery this morning...

It's a pretty low-key weekend for us. Mostly, we have a lot of things to do around the house, some pre-fall cleaning. It's amazing to me how much dust accumulates in our house, no matter how much cleaning I do. It's everywhere! And we'll probably take the pups to the dog park tomorrow morning, so Georgie can have her swim time.

Have a lovely weekend!

More Wedding Photos

I just got photos in from a wedding I coordinated back in June, and I would love to share them with you if you'd like to see...

This photo was taken in the stairwell in our church where the wedding ceremony was held... I love the stained glass!

One of the colors in the bride's palette was apple-green, so we used granny-smith apples as place card holders... and props to show off their wedding bands.

I love this photo! In the distance, you can see the barn where the wedding reception was held.

This is the walk-way leading up to the barn. We hung mason jars from shepherd sticks to add a little oomph to the entrance.

The bridal party...

This is one of the entrances to the barn that the guests did not use. We hung moss letters with the bride and groom's initials. A gust of wind came out of nowhere and blew those letters off as we were decorating the barn! Fortunately, they stayed on for the reception!

The barn was already set up to be able to hang things from the high ceilings. 

The happy couple, sharing their first dance.

Thanks for indulging me for a minute! As you can probably tell, I am very proud of how it all turned out.

This week, we are gearing up for the new semester. Our students are back to school, which means that the vacation is over, and M is back to work. We have had an amazing summer. I am pretty sad that it's over, but we're looking forward to fall. Fall is a fun time to live in Fort Collins. We have the annual Tour de Fat bicycle rally, which is coming up on Labor Day Weekend. Then, we can look forward to seeing all the pretty fall colors and maybe even snow!

Weekend Recap

We just got in from Virginia Beach, where we were for a wedding over the weekend. Both of us are dragging today. Travel is fun but not always relaxing. One of my friends gave me a gift certificate to get a massage, and I think I'll definitely be cashing that in this week :)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! xo

Wedding Photos

Hello. Hope you had a fabulous weekend. One of my friends from college has been in town. On Friday, we spent the day in Boulder. It was my first time there, even though we've lived in Colorado for almost two years. Tonight, we're going out for Mexican :)

I just got some photos back from one of the weddings I coordinated earlier this summer. You can view them on my website.

 That is all :)
