The Dreamer

My own dreamer! :)

A Little Country Girl

Had a lovely evening last night at the Donnell house. Dinner, apple crisp and a movie.

Before we ate Anna and I took little Addie outside dressed up in the cutest outfits. Took some fun pictures of their adorable little girl. She is growing up so fast!

To see all the rest of the photos we took check out my FB album.......

Rings on the Beach

While in Santa Barbara I spent some time on the beach while Paul was with his client. It was a beautiful day and very peaceful on the beach.

Played around with my camera and rings.....random, I know! :)

Good Things Come to Those That Wait

Every couple has horror stories of life when they first where married.

Ours was the refrigerator.

We didn't have alot of money when we got married so we bought only the essentials for the kitchen. Dishes, utensils, stove, sink...etc. We borrowed a small fridge from Paul's brother in law thinking we would have a full size one fairly soon. Little did we know that this tiny "cold air box" would be with us for over a year. It was a big trial to say the least. The "freezer" was big enough to fit one bag of frozen veggies, maybe two if I really stuffed it in. We tried to put a quart of ice cream in there and it melted to a discusting liquid. Packing that barely 2ft x 2ft refrigerator was definatley an art. Sometimes there would be too much stuff and the door wouldn't shut. One time I actually wrapped wire around the whole box to keep in closed.

Yep, good times! Below is a picture of our faithful friend for over 365 days.

I am happy to say that we now have a full sized refrigerator. Our friends were moving and needed to get rid of it and we were overjoyed to take it. We now have more room then we need and its wonderful to have seperate areas for milk, veggies, butter....etc.

Ah, marriage bliss!

We had a picnic in the park on Labor Day. It was a really nice day for it....sunny and breezy.

The couple near us had seven of the most adorable little puppies. Some were sleeping, others were exploring the grass. We played with them for a while and I had to get some pictures of them.

Date with Paul

This past weekend Paul and I had a lovely little date.

We had been given tickets to see the Kansas City Royals on Saturday. The weather was beautiful and it was really nice to have an evening to myself with my husband.

Stroup/Keith Wedding

I first met Kevin and Ashley at a Kansas City photography meeting. They were engaged to be married in just a few months. Totally in love and happy....the cutest couple! Ashley told me about Kevin's surprise proposal while they were in China. So romantic!

We had the pleasure of attending their August wedding. The colors were purple and orange....very beautiful together. A lovely outside ceremony was followed by a rocking reception.

Here are a few pictures that I snapped during the evening.
