Abundant Beauty!

Today I finally had a chance to sit down and digest the past 3 weeks, look over pictures and sift through over 140 messages in my inbox...WOWZERS!!!! This is the kids last week of school and then it's time for a bit of rest and relaxation around here! Aside from the rather insane schedule we have been keeping this past 6 weeks I was able to reach deep down and find that little spark of creativity that often gets stifled and stepped on in this season of life that I am in. A few months ago my very dear friend Sue asked me to help her with her oldest son's wedding rehearsal dinner. I was delighted and honored to be a part of such a wonderful families celebration and took FULL ...and I mean FULL advantage of being creative. Here are some images of the evening. Pictures really don't do it justice!

I asked my friend Amy to do the calligraphy and then I added a little floral touch!

We had a BEAUTIFUL house to work with!

Wowza! Great job! Looks beautiful! I saw the calligraphy, and was wondering if Amy did it (she taught me Calligraphy a long time ago, and did my wedding invitation). How fun for you!
