Our Austin Engagement Shoot

Adam and I are blessed to have connected to the most amazing photographer for our wedding, Nathan Russell. We admired Nathan’s work on my friend Kathryn Hutchison’s blog, and we were thrilled that Nathan and his wife Amy agreed to capture our wedding celebration on Oct. 6.
An “engagement shoot” was part of our photography package, and I was relieved that we would have the chance to get to know Nathan and Amy before the big day, and also get some practice in posing for photos together. We got together after …

Belgium Bites

Sending a shout out to everyone celebrating a birthday today on 11-11-11! This year, I spent my birthday in Bruges (or Brugge), Belgium. Adam and I bought a small package of candles at HEMA, one of those stores where you end up buying things you never knew you needed.
We ate our way through Bruges, and almost everywhere we stopped, Adam stuck a candle in whatever we were sampling and lit it. I got to make lots of wishes that day! Here we are at da Vinci Gelateria.
Next stop was for …

Cool Ice Cream, Hot People at the Ice Cream Social!

I don’t know about you, but all I want during this 100 degree summer is ice cream, ice cream, and more ice cream so last week’s ice cream social came at a perfect time for me. As readers of the blog know, I wanted to throw an ice cream party to thank folks for voting for me to win Whole Foods Foodie Fantasy trip to Europe, and because of a generous donation from Graeter’s of 15 gallons of ice cream — enough to feed 500 people (!), I was able …

Thank You For Voting Ice Cream Social!

I’m so grateful to my Austin community for voting to help me win a foodie fantasy trip to Europe from Whole Foods. Adam and I are booked for the adventure of a lifetime in September!
As a small way to say thank you, since unfortunately I can’t fit everyone who voted in my suitcase, I’m hosting an ice cream social, and everyone is invited, while supplies last!
I figured what better way to celebrate and beat the heat than to get together for a cool, tasty treat at the Open Room — a magical …
