Gorgeous NYC Wedding! Congrats Amy!!

Amy contacted me to custom make a set of vintage orange flowers for her bridesmaids and a special flower for her maid of honor. When she recieved them in the mail she sent me the sweetest note :) and had to buy a flower for herself! They all looked just gorgeous!! Thank you so much for sharing such lovely photos or you wedding day. It absolutely thrills me to see wedding photos! Especially to see the creativity and vision the brides have with my pieces!!
Amy, SERIOUSLY, you were an absolute pleasure to work with ♥ and I wish you and your hubby the very, very best!!

Weekend with Family ♥ Adventures in Cider Making

Meet my Family: My Wonderful Mom, My Big Sis & My Big Bro. We took a little day trip just a little less than an hour away to beautiful Lake Chelan to make fresh apple cider this fall. YUM! Seriously you must try fresh pressed cider. Sooooo yummy and a fun activity with the fam :) I think we will make this one a yearly tradition. So me & my sis will have to get our men on building that cider press.

 Cutting the apples

Whoah Mom put down the knife ;)
My mouth is watering! Fresh apples from the Washington trees. Crisp and Juicy mmmhmmmm! I've grown up eating these apples (and cherries) from right out of my backyard.
Ready to make those apples into cider. I think it was about an apple box size of apples we chopped. Made about a gallon and a half. Typically a gallon but we had some juicy apples.
 Excited to use the manly machine!

Watch (and drool)

 And press (yes I was actually there)
And press some more

and Viola! Fresh from the tree apple cider and of course great memories with the best family ever!!
We missed you dad but we know you were watching from above ♥
