Lydia Photography - Jordan & Becky's Wedding

Finally, a few photos to show off Becky's finished gown, with her beautiful handmade flowers and the little rhinestones she sprinkled on the the bodice! My friend, Lydia, is the photographer. She does the most beautiful work, capturing special moments, impressions of the day, and all the fun little details. Check out her website here.

My brother and his new wife!

Congratulations Jordan and Becky!

This pieced skirt and doll dress are a recently finished fun project--a birthday gift for my little sister. I had all the fabric scraps in my stash! It's so rewarding to make something without having to take a trip to the fabric store.
The pictures are sunset at one of my very favorite places for a sweeping view of our city and the surrounding hills.
Little sis gets her turn with the camera too!

My Weekend

I feel so blessed to have been able to spend part of two days visiting recently-married friends, Sarah and Peter, in the Monterey area. On Sunday Sarah and I enjoyed walking and a bit of shopping in the rain, with a final stop for yummy pastries and hot coffee. Monday was blue skies and sunshine--perfect for a bike ride along the scenic and romantic Monterey Bay Coastal Bike Trail!

My first impression of Peter and Sarah's place--A vibrant box of mixed greens is so welcoming and homey!

Getting our bikes ready...

A breathtaking view of the coast from the bike path.

I also made my first batch of really successful yogurt, this weekend! Thanks to good clear directions on Lindsay's blog, Passionate Homemaking.
