Back to Blogging + Wedding Sneak Peek!

After an unexpected sabbatical from blogging, I am back! And hopefully it will not be a temporary return what with my busiest business season right around the corner. :)

Since the last post, life has been incredibly full . . . it began with the very special and beautiful wedding day of Ivan and Leah (which I am so looking forward to posting about! Watch for a post soon), followed by being out of state for a much enjoyed trip, and then hip surgery for me the beginning of October to repair a torn labrum. Between all of that and recovery from surgery, blogging took a back seat while I spent time with family, kept up with business work, am in physical therapy, and much more.

Until the wedding post, here is a sneak peek (and was it ever hard to choose which ones to share! Their photographer did an amazing job and captured so many precious, special, and memorable moments!)

The wedding party (except for the sweet flower girls who were in a different wedding party photo) 

Mr. and Mrs. 

So happy!

It was so fun and special to get all the 'girls photos' together!

A very special impromptu photo the photographer snapped of them

There will be more coming soon! Much more :)

    1. Thank you for your prayers, Sarah! I am grateful and everyone's prayers are being answered. Recovery has been going well, and my surgeon said today that everything is looking great!

      You're welcome for sharing and thank you for your kind words! We didn't make the dresses, though I had to alter the bridesmaid dresses to make them fit right. That was a learning experience!

      I love that photo of them! It's one of my top favorites which is why I had to include it in this post. :)

    1. Thank you, Anne! It is great to be back. And thank you also for your prayers! I am grateful for them. The Lord has been answering prayers and recovery has been going very well. My surgeon said I am doing very well! Still have a ways to go to be fully back, but with therapy and lots of exercise I am getting there!

      Thank you so much! Oh yes, they were so very happy. Simply glowing with happiness and joy! How good God has been to them (and all of us!) in bringing them together!!
