All I Want is a Pond Somewhere


I played the violin at a beautiful wedding last weekend for an adorable couple. The bridesmaids tossed hundreds of rose petals into the water and the scenery was just breathtaking. I fell in love with the house where they did the ceremony. Well, more the piece of land. I think I'll move in one day.

To top it off, they had patches of lilies {my favorite flower} growing everywhere.
I forgot the only problem about the lily--it stains bridal gowns and little girls' noses!
Seriously, I couldn't get it off her face. She wandered and played in the flowers and I had to get pictures of this gorgeous kid ... lily-stained nose and all.

Your bicep was also one of the first things I noticed...of course after the beautiful child and lovely flowers.

Ha ha, I guess hauling two kids up two flights of stairs every day has its advantages. I'm glad you noticed that and not my farmer's tan!!

Danette said...

Your pictures look amazing. I must admit that I really like the lily-stained nose...adds so much character!

I hear you with carrying the two kids up a flight of stairs...plus the groceries and everything else. Glad there are no more stairs for us right now with three kids. Abbey is beautiful. Ashlyn takes priceless photos too sometimes, but she is a monster in real life. A lot of fun, just crazy and into everything

I realized why you thought I hadn't seen these yet... I never commented! Google Reader, while convenient, has seriously diminished my commenting. Love these. Love her. I want to see you guys SO badly!

i love the scrunch nose one b/c you both have the same expression, and she's pulling a total ashley face. i'm glad you're able to get out and play at weddings here and there! you're so talented on that thing. i definitely scored having you as a roommate because i got to listen to you practice so beautifully.

you're both so darling, and beautiful pictures!

LOL! I subscribed to your blog a few weeks ago so there is a link to your site in a tool bar on my browser. Every time I see the title of this post, the song gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day. ;)
