A peek at what I have been up to!

The past few weeks I have been busy preparing for the marriage of my brother-in-law to my god-daughter. It was a small wedding with only family in attendance. It was a lovely wedding, and I was honored to spend many hours in the past few weeks helping with the plans. Standing up beside them, looking over at my husband through the service, it brought tears to my eyes as I remembered the day nearly 15 years ago that he and I were married.

Here is the wedding cake I made for them. In my previous life (ie "BC"-before children) I was a cake decorator :)

And here is "the queen" who served as a flower girl. She is modeling the bride's veil! Now that the wedding is past, I should be posting more - I have had a bit of a computer vacation over the past few weeks. But school is back in full swing Monday and I look forward to sharing our latest plans!

Lovely. Thanks for sharing! We're looking forward to maybe having a wedding out your way next summer!

Also, did I ever tell you about when I got to hear Ray Bradbury speak in person?

That's really sweet - what a neat opportunity for you and your hubby to both participate in the ceremony like that. And that cake is gorgeous!

OMGoodness, the Queen is adorable.

Sorry. I have four boys. Sometimes I go into gushing mode when I see a "pink" one. :)

I love the photo of your family. Your cake is beautiful. I really enjoy reading your blog when I get the chance!
