Apparently, anytime I plan anything that has to do with my marriage, there is a drastic weather change.
Wedding day…cold. Rainy. Windy. First snow. Day before wedding day and day after wedding day? Sunny. Warm.
Honeymoon…unseasonal amount of rain. Caves were flooded out so there was no cave tubing and I saw more rain then I ever would have liked to on a vacation.
First year anniversary trip to the mountains? Cold. Rainy. Windy. First snow.
It’s quite impressive, really. If rain is good luck, we just keep racking it up.
Looking forward to a weekend with my husband and our pups…bundling up, hiking, snuggling by the fire, making our wedding s’mores and enjoying some wine and excellent food.
I understand this way too well. It’s especially great when someone does get my name wrong and I don’t correct them and later they know they got my name wrong…makes for a wonderfully awkward and confusing time.
Can’t get much cuter than babies and cake, right? Oh…and tutu’s.

A darling little boy turned one and he got to celebrate with an Up-themed party. That movie is one of my favorites.
But there was more than cake…there were cupcakes and cakepops and chocolate-covered Oreos…oh my!
Some hot air balloons, of course! And, the “grape soda” pins from the movie…I added the word “grape” post-photo shoot…some times patience is not my thing.
One year ago, I was running on 3 hours of sleep and I was setting up at a barn for the best.day.ever.
For months I had crafted…I had made Matt craft…I had my mom going to the craft store everyday for burlap…and I was buying up lace like a crazy person.
We made our guest book:
Our ring box:
Our cornhole boards:
Crafting and babies. In a barn. It does not get much better than that!
Almost wedding time…
But first…a little rehearsal dinner:
After a solid week of just going all out, it was finally time for our wedding day.
A rainy, chilly wedding day. The best day.
This happy ….ALL DAY.
Again. The best day.
And here’s the video to prove it:
One year of marriage. It’s been the best year…full of growth and learning and love.
Such cherished and wonderful memories from that day and I am so happy to re-live them every chance I get.
Coming up? Some year old frozen wedding s’mores, a bottle of wine from our wedding, and a great celebration and cheers to many more years.
Thanks to Yelp!
Check out Cake on Sunday in Reno’s New Restaurant Roundup: http://www.yelp.com/weekly_yelp/QVP70uBeWRdylaCrPHOJMQ.
Cake never sounded so sweet. I was also mentioned on the 7:30 Yelp this morning on KTHX-FM: http://www.myradiox.com/The-Schnooz-The-7-30-YELP-9-18-14/18093715?pid=428007
Yay…I may never get a full night’s sleep anymore because of Cake on Sunday…but this makes me…
Sometimes I think Baby’s Breath gets a bad rap…but I think it’s beautiful and I just love when I get to put it on rustic buttercream cakes.
I also love photographing cakes as the sun is rising. Cakes certainly don’t let me sleep in… but seeing the sunrise is a pretty good tradeoff.
This show started over 10 years ago. I didn’t watch it then, but I am hooked on it now (thanks a lot, Netflix).
I spent Friday night hooked on a decade old show bawling my eyes out. So cool.
Now excuse me while I go obsess over some high school kids playing basketball in a small town in North Carolina.
(At least I get to re-live the early 2000s music through this show. I can’t even begin to tell you the memories.)
I found it. Carrot cake. I am not big on sweets and can usually pass on anything I bake. Well…not carrot cake. I might have baked extra cupcakes and I might eat two every day. Thank goodness they are almost gone.
On top of the extra cupcakes I made, I baked 4 dozen cupcakes and a three-tier cake for a rooftop reception. So much carrot cake goodness.
I love these simple, beautiful cakes.
I found these flowers in my backyard and they were the perfect touch for this textured cake for a couple to bring up to Lake Tahoe.
In fact, I love them so much, I made another similar one for a BBQ I went to:
Both of these cakes were almond with raspberry filling!
