Emily & Neal Brooks : A rainy outdoor wedding

There is simply no couple as happily go-with-the-flow and laid back as Emily & Neal. “We’re going to have the reception first.” “Oh it’s raining? We’ll just grab some umbrellas” . And after Emily got married outside in the pouring rain, she says “That could not have been more perfect. It was PERFECT.” Anyway, I love this couple. I love that Emily wore two dresses. (The second was her mother’s). I love that her family made all of the food. I LOVE THAT THE ENTIRE GROOMS PARTY SURPRISED HER WITH AN ORIGINAL SONG! I just love it all. Congrats Brooks!!



Daytrippers: Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Festival – Mansfield, MO

Now anyone who knows me knows my INTENSE passion for gardening. Wait. I’ve never gardened a day in my life, that’s right. Let’s try that again. Everyone who knows me knows my INTENSE passion for going on roadtrips to weird, quirky places. That’s better. So when Michelle Houghton and Mara Dawn organized this little outing to an heirloom seed festival, how could I resist?
It turns out Baker Creek is ADORABLE. The cinnamon rolls are bigger than my head (and remember  I have a larger than average head.) There was hand-painted type EVERYWHERE…and to be honest with you…I’m thinking about planting some seeds. (What’s that? Oh, you have to water them? Oh… and dig in the dirt? Oh? It takes time and commitment? Okay. Well then, we’ll see how it goes…I bought some anyway.)

Katie Shelton is a walking visual treat. Every time she shows up to a play date I end up shouting, “AHHH!!!! I HAVE to take your picture!!!!!!” I think I have a very specific Katie-related form of turret syndrome. I’m looking into it.

@jennfortner is a truly beautiful person.
