but you go on

Oh October, you always grab me and shake me and tear me open.  October has been a month (since 2001) that has meant so many joyful and heartwrenching things to me that it is difficult for my brain to sort out all that my heart feels. 

I am never sad to see it go. 

My best friend and I were recently having a discussion about October, and if it would be a good time to have a baby.  She remarked that it wouldn't because the baby would be born on my exhusbands birthday (with my luck).  But I said that it would.  No matter what, I am so conflicted about October.  I try to add happy occassions back into the month that has an opal as it's talisman.

Fall, my favorite season. 

One of the best months in 2000 when my college boyfriend spent tons of time with me in a tiny apartment on the top floor of a house on Bluemont street

our wedding

You'd think that would be the ultimate trump card.  One of happiest days of my life...but it will take a lifetime of more happy things, until then I will just keep adding them one by one.

If I could catch the world in an hourglass

The wedding is over (sigh of relief & happiness).  I still have so many projects to document, but I thought I'd post a few of the preview photos from my photographer

my mom made the cake, all the sugar cookies and chocolate cookies too...delicious

all my lovely friends in jewel tones

sitting in a candy apple red 1956 Cadillac

my sweet little flower girl
Do I look as freezing as I was? Chilly day, warm hearts...

My sister did a loofah beehive for the occasion

my take on a brooch filled boquet, brooch-dazzled shoes and my grandma's travel case
plus a couple of candids...

Our father-daughter dance was ALL fathers and daughters

Listening to the toasts...
title lyrics from the first dance song: Until by Sting
