beauty in threes

I just wanted to share this...

I was over at http://www.beckynovacekphotography.com/ and found this picture which absolutely brought over an immense amount of feeling..close to tears, happiness, thoughts..the whole nine yards...
I know alot of people may look at that photograph..and be like.."its a photograph.."but not for me....this really made me feel something...something every photograph should possess..

i thought about my wedding, and how i would've given anything for my grandmother to have beenthere...My grandmother to have stood by my mother and my side...wow...if only she could see how far I've come...

Anyway...Becky Novacek is an amazing photographer...She manages to stop time in each glimpse...I'm so glad to have found her.


oh hambly...thank you for coming in the mail....

you really made my day...

oh yes.

my night will consist of:

15 September 2009


Quick post before bed....I'm finally getting sleepy..It always happens so fast. One minute I'm wired, then suddenly it's all downhill from there...Anyway...my cat Chloe isn't too fond of the camera..but i was able to catch a few..here's one of my fav.'s..

This is a photo of my tilapia tostadas....MMmmmm Perhaps one of the best damn things I've ever eaten..seriously....thank you Cooking light...

This is the cover of my Auto Cad II notebook for school. I'm on break yet I'm still managing to do shit related to it..Hmmmm..Maybe that's a good thing?

These are the mini cards i made as a set to send to a soldier oversee's for them to send out to family..I decided recently that it was a good idea to get involved with "pen-paling" again..growing up i had over 50 people across the US i used to write to frequently..we used to swap stickers, and friend books, and all kinds of other stuff. It was awesome. I can thank my great-grandmother "mimi" for that. She and my grandmother played a large hand in my love for writing and thrift store shopping/garage saling...anyway..I more recently (well 5 or so years ago) kept in contact with a very close friend of my best friends husband who was overseas. I have a HUGE box full of letters he wrote. I think it's a wonderful thing to do.

SO like i said..this was going to be short but sleep. I mean-sweet...see im tired..HAH..night

Just thought I'd share....Maybe I'll start one and send to a friend and they can contiue the chain til its full, where it'll return to me.

Eye Candy ::love::

Today has been a good day. It's the day after my exams, and I'm pretty sure i have all A's...I can't remember the last time I had all A's. I don't know if it's because I worked so hard, have managed to focus better than i ever have, or if the classes were just that easy....I guess all that matters is that I did it! Freakin sweet!In celebration, i took a trip around town to inspire me. Here is what I found..This is the new tin I bought to store my staples. I think it's quite lovely.

I'm a sucker for a good $1 stamp...

And then i found these...Little did i know that Martha Stewarts, ribbons were sticky tape!!!!! I ::heart:: you Martha...

The rest are just things that I have, and love..that inspire me to create...And for that, i am happy...

Mrs. Carpenter!!

Sooooo much has happened these past few months...and it happened oh so quickly. The older i get, the more i notice just how fast time really moves. I've already been married for a month, when just yesterday it seems I was freaking out over trying to plan it all...It was such a beautiful day..I will never forget. All of our friends and family came to see us and support us..It truly was the most amazing thing. A houseful of people at all times, leading to one event after another. We weren't lacking entertainment that's for sure.

The girls and I decided to go boat riding and we stumbled upon this. At this point, we had just gotten the boat stuck on top of a massive oyster bed, which consequently sliced Sara's foot open...as we waited in the boat for seatow, we noticed the birds. It was so beautiful.

This is the arch that a few of our friends slaved over to get it put together. My parents even sat outside of the resort scrubbing every last inch of them bc they were covered in something black, making the bamboo severely dirty. THANKS MOM and DAD.

I got really lucky with the flowers and photography bc two of the most important people in my life got to play a major role. Tiff was the florist and tabitha was the photographer. It again, was an amazing day. Chaotic, but amazing.

I feel like the luckiest girl alive. I married the most amazing man I've ever met. He's the embellishments to my paper...hah...But really...the more i think about it and our future to come, I can't help but feel overwhelmed with love and emotion. He's always there for me no matter what, he's sincere and openminded, he's laid back, he's adventurous (like me..) we can't seem to sit still for too long... i can communicate with him as though he were one of the girls. I'm truly grateful.

Here's jeremy looking at me for the first time, walking down the aisle. I love this picture. He's so handsome. It's so funny, because our house was soooo full and there was constantly things going on, we more or less just kept bumping into each other all week long. It wasn't til the wedding day we truly got to hang out with each other.

These are the thank you cards I made for everyone. I wish i had more time to spend on them, but I'm at least glad i got them finished!

Here's my newly revamped scrapbook area. I still have visions but it's a good start. It's better than it was. I enjoy making art here.

I found this the other day, and can't bring myself to write in it. It's toooooo pretty....What to do...
And i've been practicing a new signature with my married name....It's a struggle..Jeez..if i didnt care so much with how it looked...

And this is a sneak peak of a christmas card...A store nearby sells hambly..and that makes me smile...

Also, i'm in school for interior design, and taking finals this week. I'm going into them with all A's, so I'm hoping I can maintain that once they're over..I really hope I can take a trip home to see my family. I really need it.
That's all I've got for now....maybe I'll find more pics to post. I'm just glad I finally got around to doing it...

i love random

Listening to a little Blind Melon, watching the sun slowly set....Times like these sooothe my soul....I crave them..Outside, by the pool...good music...good drink...shish kabobs in my near future..A little bonding with the bff on skype soon to come...needed...anyway...like i said...i love random...I'm pretty sure i've used that title before...because it's oh so true...

We'll start with art...This is the album i was supposed to have completed by mother's day, but overloaded myself..It's for my aunt and uncle..I hope they like it..I have 2 more pages to complete, then it's off in the mail.

These candles were sent to me from a very special friend Jamey...She made me cry when i opened the box. So generous, and thoughtful. It touched my heart. I love packages...especially being so far from home...Hell....i love mail...minus the bills....and i keep receiving my rsvp's for the wedding...everytime i get one, i smile real big. It makes it feel so official. I'm reaching that "super excited phase"....every little detail, that works itself out....really does it for me...These candles will go GREAT on those reception tables, or any other place tiff thinks they neeeed to go :) Again-THANK YOU JAMEY...it reallly means ALOT. You can find Jamey at Lagniappe Candles: http://www.myspace.com/463370701 I may not have many fans...but the ones that check me out...should DEF check her out...She does a great job... I have liked every single one she's sent....She's quite lovely. And she works her BUTT off :)

Jeremy and I took a canoe trip. I had a blast. It really reminded me of the bayous back home....the quiet calming....Nature...life...Soothing....Mmmmmmm

This tree was quite beautiful. I am discovering so many new palnts, flowers, trees here...And it is fantastic...

We saw MANATEES!!!!!!!! There was a mom, dad(i'm assuming) and a baby! It was a fascinating experience.We were soooooo close to them and they didn't even mind....The first pic is of the baby resting on top of it's mother. It was the cutest thing ever.

This is the manatee in the water to give you a clue as to how HUGE they are!
And here is the momma sticking her nose out of the water.

And then comes my school. I went to pick up books the other day. Everytime i go into this building i am in awe...There are glass enclosed walls with beautiful settings.

And really that's all i've got....Gotta go put those shish kabobs together..Maybe swim afterward...and then skype! I LOVE skype...it makes me feel like im home....I love that feeling..
