The Hitching Posts: Bread & Jam Favors

I adore homemade things...especially favors!
One of my favorite bloggers, Jordan (Oh Happy Day!), posted a DIY tutorial over on Project Wedding. I'd recommend checking out both of these sites for inspiration on party planning & such.
Wouldn't these make great favors for a small wedding or a shower?
I just like the process of assembling little trinkets!

Amy and Rob

The rain held off, and the sun was bright for Amy & Rob's sweet wedding ceremony yesterday at Pat's Peak in Henniker, New Hampshire.

Amy's dad walked her down the aisle and carefully over the foot bridge....some guests enjoyed the ceremony from the balcony.

Rob carefully taped his wedding vows to the ground (he even covered it with plastic to make sure if the rain came he could still say the words he wrote for Amy).

A special moment for the newlyweds, immediately following the ceremony.

After the showers, an incredible rainbow was seen from the deck patio.

The cake toppers were Amy's grandparents...guests were treated to potted plants for centerpieces...a special locket on Amy's flowers...

Just because....I was getting ready for Mikayla's baby shoot...and thought I'd take some of a monkey's beloved monkey. The paper in the background is Martha Stewart wrapping paper. I've had it for ages and haven't been able to decide what to do with it. At least I unwrapped it for this shoot!

Baby Mikayla

Little Miss Mikayla really wanted ALL of her photos to have her blue pacifier, but her mom & I were able to trick her :0) At 7 weeks old she weighs 8 pounds (she came a little bit early) and her little feet are so tiny! It's amazing how quickly I forget that Marcus was once this little!

I've known her new momma since the 7th grade & in 8th grade we got in trouble in Home Ec. for putting 3 times too many blueberries in our muffins with Arinn (Happy Birthday Arinn!)

The Hitching Posts: Super 8 Wedding Film

Hello Everyone, 

I have been taking an amazing e-course with Holly from one of my favorite blogs, Decor8 (check out the details here:
Thanks to the help of my inspiring and creative classmates there will be some major changes happening here in the next few weeks. The entire blog will be getting a Spring that I think I need myself,too! That said, something that I'd like to introduce here are The Hitching Posts, which I will post weekly on Mondays. The Hitching Posts will be a new source for brides (and everyone else that is equally as obsessed with weddings)....I'll be sharing unique ideas and vendors that I've found on Esty and other inspiring places.

First up is Layer Cake Films and their incredibly hip Cake-in-a-Box Super 8 Film rental. The concept is that you rent the vintage Super 8 camera, have a friend film your event, and then ship it back for them to process and edit.  Pretty groovy, huh?  If I could do ONE thing over on my wedding day, this would be it. Okay, I lied, I'd also wear a vintage net hairpiece....For all my readers that are already hitched- if you could do ONE thing over again on your wedding day, what would it be?

Watch Me as I Grow: Lilacs, Part II

After a full day of warm sun (as in 80 degree April...
in New Hampshire...seriously?), one little lilac decided to bloom....
they are so tiny you really wouldn't notice them in passing....but they are here!

Watch Me as I Grow: Lilacs, Part I

IMG_4312, originally uploaded by rodeo618.

This will be our third summer in Landaff (hard to believe, right?) Our first year here my Gram had given us a lilac bush from her home, which my nice cousins carefully dug up and transplanted. She lives right next to my side porch, so I can see her every time I pass in and out of the house. She has had buds on her for the past few weeks, but it looks like they are just begging for more sun and warmth so they can wake up from their long winter slumber.

Off the Beaten Trail: Part I

I'd like to introduce a new series: Off the Beaten Trail. I'll be regularly posting photos of things and places that I discover around lovely little Landaff for your viewing enjoyment.

edited to note: This shot was actually taken in neighboring Bath, on the Rabbit Path.
