As you know my brother got married last weekend! It was a wonderful weekend filled with family and friends. The rain held off and we were able to have the ceremony outside on the beautiful Spa Lawn at the mountain resort. Above is me (with a HUGE GRIN) walking down the aisle accompanied by one of my brother’s good friends.
I couldnt’ help but share this photo of my brother waiting—he’s just busting with joy and happiness! I think everyone who attended is still feeling the love and smiling this week. And the fun continues with the long Memorial Day weekend! Who-ooo!
My plan for the weekend—to cultivate my creativity by planting an herb garden. I’ll be hanging a vertical herb garden. After I’m all done, it should look something like this:

Cool, right?! I have a partial sunny corner of our porch where I will hang my garden. This way too that pesky groundhog won’t dine in my garden like he did last year. Ha—I win!
How are you celebrating the long weekend?

It’s been a hectic week! D and I have had back to back wedding weekends filled with lots of friends and dancing (and my feet are still recovering from all the fun). For the wedding last weekend, the bride and groom asked me to help them with their party favor. They wanted a beautiful quote to wrap around a clear pint glass. The glasses turned out great and people used them during the wedding to hold their beer or in my case, a “pint of red wine”. Thus, this became my favorite wedding favor EVER.
The quote says: “What is most important is to find peace and share it with others” —Thich Nhat Hanh Beautiful isn’t is?!
In the middle of the week of wedding fun my computer decided to crash—BUT thankfully, I was fully backed up, so it wasn’t too bad of a disaster. I highly, recommend using Time Machine for all your backing up needs! This week is starting off much smoother: I’m rocking a new hard drive and I’m making headway on finalizing all my prints and stationery for the Park Ave Festival which happens THIS Saturday and Sunday. Here are the details again:
