Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!

Since we don’t dress our dogs up I figured it would be a good time to share the bit of seasonal decorating that’s been gracing our house this month and generally getting us in the fall spirit πŸ™‚

I bought all these gourds + a big pumpkin for our front stoop for about $15 – well worth it πŸ™‚

The ball of color on the right is my attempt at this Martha Stewart craft (minus the rope stem…haven’t figured out where to buy that yet!). Pathetic I know.

I asked Jeff what he thought and he told me that it looked like a ball wrapped with yarn.
I told him he needed a little imagination πŸ™‚

The last year or so I’ve been investing in seasonal decorations when I see something I like – I loved these felted acorns and leaves from Green Baboon Designs on Etsy.

Do you like my Keep Calm sign? It was a gift from Audra and Steve πŸ™‚

Don’t eat too much candy!

Kim & Pete’s Wedding Day!

Today I’m closing out my 2010 wedding season at the Jonathan Edwards winery celebrating with the fabulous Kim & Pete (and Charlie their pooch!)- it will be SO good to see them again!

Pete & Kim

We absolutely LOVE the pictures! Seriously, there is not a bad one in the bunch – they are all fantastic and better than we could have ever imagined so THANK YOU! Β We have gotten tons of compliments on the pictures and of the slide show. Amanda, you captured this day better than anyone could have imagined!! Amazing, amazing (amazing!) work – thank you SO much for all your effort!

Baby Ellie!

A few weeks ago I hung out with Baby Ellie for a day which provided a glimpse into my future πŸ™‚

Ellie is working on her tummy muscles….that is one heavy head πŸ™‚

Help! Time to lie down.

Or maybe sit up – this is quite a snuggly seat!

I love my exer-saucer πŸ™‚

And then onto the activity mat….anything to keep her amused πŸ™‚

We had a great day and I’d be happy to go back anytime πŸ™‚

Laura & Andrew’s Brooklyn Engagement Photos

I met up with Laura & Andrew in the neighborhood where they went to Law school (and fell in love!) across the bridge in Brooklyn Heights. I always love exploring new neighborhoods and this one didn’t disappoint from the charming brownstones to the incredible views of the bridge and Manhattan.

Once Laura and I became friends on Facebook we noticed a common friend – I went to grade school with one of her closest friends and future bridesmaid….I love small world connections πŸ™‚ From reading my blog they also discovered that Andrew had gone to high school with Jeff (though they weren’t in the same class) – too funny!

They are getting married next September at the Round Barn in Vermont and it’s going to be a blast πŸ™‚

Perhaps my favorite πŸ™‚

As Laura said: “If you can’t rock Love Lane during your engagement shoot when can you??”

A nice little church garden tucked away from the street

That also offered this pretty door

Love the crispness and textures here

Look at them rocking it πŸ™‚

Gorgeous red door right on the waterfront

And a parting shot with the bridge

I had a great time – thanks for showing me around πŸ™‚
