I love the lake house!

Wedding Album : I <3 Freckled Nest!

I had such a hard time deciding what to do with my gorgeous wedding pictures from Whitney Lee Photography until I found Leigh-Ann from Freckled Nest . I saw samples of some of her other albums and I knew she was the right person for the job. She was so easy to work with through the design process and she really understood my style and what I was looking for. She did a great job of incorporating my papers and our quotes and I absolutely LOVE the way it all turned out! I'm so excited about it!

Here are some pictures of this last lovely week in Colorado, where we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to wear jackets. We were sad to return home to not only 108 degree weather, but a broken air conditioner. Thank goodness we got it fixed that same day! Anyway, Colorado is awesome. Maybe we'll move there someday.

Yeah, we climbed to the top of that rock. It was about 7,000 feet above sea level. We started our hike about 5,000 feet. We're hard core.

This is Alec with his aunt and uncle, Suzie and Gary. They took us through the Rocky Mountain National Park. This spot is near the origination of the Colorado River.

Behind us you can see Horsetooth Reservoir. We went boating there the first night we arrived in town. What a way to welcome us to town!

Handmade Nation

I am so excited Handmade Nation is finally opening in Austin, Texas! I got my special VIP tickets from Sublime Stitching and I can't wait! It makes me even more happy that I get to go to the Alamo Drafthouse for the event. I don't like regular movie theaters anymore because the Alamo experience has me SPOILED!

I'm also super excited to see these people at the event.

Purse tutorial

I want to make this awesome purse I found on the Ric-Rac blog:

Selvedge dress

This just might be the cutest dress ever. I love the cut of the dress as well as the fact that it's made out of the selvedge of fabric! I need to start working harder on becoming a master seamstress so I can make one!
