I'm excited to share this surprise proposal/mini engagement session. Justin had a vision and a plan for his lady to propose at a winery/vineyard. Although there wasn't any canopy in the vineyard, we improvised with a barrel room and session outside in mustard flowers. Definitely a learning experience as this was my first proposal. They were such a great couple to work with. Despite all the shaking from the nerves, Justin's love for Julian shone through.
Though most of December was spent under the weather, nothing but some nice sunshine and relaxation can't cure. I headed to southwest Florida for the holidays. A last minute mini engagement session was sprung on me as well. Here's to 2017!
After several months, (thank you, harvest) I'm finally able to share highlights of my trip to Italy back in August. We ate pasta. Drank lots of vino. And just enjoyed each other's company away from "reality". I even got patched up at a tourist hospital in Rome. (It wasn't like escaping a near-death experience atop the Duomo was enough.) Traveling with anyone can be challenging, but Harry and I both agreed that we would definitely go on future trips with Caroline and Ed. We had fun exploring and can't wait to go on more adventures.
By happenstance, I stumbled upon a woman named Cathy at a local shipping center. She was cradling one of the cutest little recue kittens. Cathy thought "Little Fella" was a special needs kitten and is deciding to keep the sweet little thing. Again by happenstance, only a day later, I bumped into a friend whose 17 year old cat went to the rainbow bridge. I told her about Cathy and the kittens and momma cat. Here are some adorable moments when we visited them all. If cat lovers are looking for kittens, they will be available with Jameson Animal Rescue.
Here you will find a bit more insight into the world through my lens. And I won't be mad if you surprise me with canelés from Saint-Émilion (circa 2012).
