week 16 ::: apple

A fine fall fruit for this week. I'll confess that I've already purchased a few maternity outfits. It sure didn't take long for me to feel incredibly uncomfortable in my current waistband. Ah well!

week 15 ::: avocado

The pounds should start coming fast nowadays. And I'm visiting my newborn niece & nephew so the baby anticipation/excitement is also on the rise. Enjoy your week while I enjoy twin snuggles!

blood vile ::: halloween invitation

Here's the follow-up invitation that accompanied the Halloween Save-the-Date. These little 3" boxes were mailed to potential party guests.

I still love them so much! Fun packaging is the best. And don't forget you can download your own version of this invitation! Have a great weekend, friends!

halloween invite {free download}

So last year I hosted a small Halloween bash. It's one of my husbands' favorite holidays, and I love an excuse for decorations & food. Like many (nay—nearly all) projects, I hardly had time to pull it off let alone document with photos. 

But now I get to show off the fun invitations that were sent out!

The photos are of a save-the-date (more elaborate invite coming soon!), but the printable is for a fill-in-the-blank halloween party invitation. The red drip/splash isn't part of the design, it's actually a drop of food coloring. Each invite was unique with its own runs and splotches. How haunting!

Above is the link to download your own invitations. Be sure to add the splash of blood!

week 14 ::: lemon

A week ago I denied there was a bump and said it looks like I've just eaten a large burrito. But a few days ago I embraced that I may be showing (though I admit it looks super obvious in pic 1).

Bye bye pencil skirt, you were fun for all of 10 min. Perhaps we'll meet again years from now.

Happy Monday to you—hoping you have an amazing week!

first trimester ::: fruit of the womb

Obviously there are many adorable ways to document a pregnancy. Deciding which I wanted to do was a challenge, but I loved everything about this approach. The "fruit of the womb" concept has been done before, most beautifully by Carolee Beckham. I love the agrarian aspect, but also the very tangible representation of the miracle that is taking place inside my body. Still can't believe it.

So each Monday I hope to update my pregnancy journal with a little photoshoot. And I also plan to post a few other non-baby related posts in between as well.

choose your corner…

We all know love is often a battlefield.

You take a big swing.

He counters you with a swift punch to the uterus.

Next thing you know…

Sweet victory.

Still so unreal. It just hasn't sunk in that we have a little surprise on the way. Blue or red? We won't know 'til April! So now is the time to place your bets and choose your corner!

fall farm wedding {part 2}

The fall wedding gorgeousness continues! After guests minglinged for the cocktail hour, they made their way down the hill to the ceremony location under this enormous elegant tree.

The tree itself has an incredible story, being struck by lightening and damaged so that half of it was laying completely horizontal. By some nature miracle, it was able to recover and appears unscathed. A somewhat decent metaphor for marriage, eh?

After the ceremony, the children were handed a farm map with a clue to their next adventure. Who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt?!

Their hunt ends at the large wrap around porch, where guests are preparing to feast.

This porch had a "decent" view of the Mississippi river. No big deal. Also down by this view was a large bonfire and s'more bar.

The tables were covered with paper and we had written little love quotes scattered throughout at random.

While completely amazing up to this point, this wedding would not be complete without a pie buffet. A delicious one. All baked by friends and family.

What a day! I still have amazing memories of the fun we had, both with the small planning team that pulled everything together and celebrating the couple together. Sharing my creative skills with wonderful people that truly deserve celebration brings constant gratification to my life. Happy Anniversary Chris & Jen!

You can view part 1 of the wedding here.

fall farm wedding {part 1}

A few days ago was the anniversary of very good friends, whose wedding I had the privelege of styling. They were married on 9/10/11. Why am I just now showcasing? OH I suppose I originally wanted to submit it to large wedding blog...but like many things in my life, that only amounted to good intentions.

But ohhhh so fun to look back and remember what a FUN event this was.

The wedding took place at the most breathtaking location—in Spanish Lake, Missouri at Kuhs Estate and Farm. When guests arrived, they made their way to the barn for cocktail hour. This barn was a thrifters dream, stuffed full of antiques of all kinds.

And while the adults mingled, the kiddos could enterain themselves over at the mini petting zoo.

I credit this event to me falling in love with floral arranging. 

Such a beautiful couple! And you haven't even seen the wedding yet! On Monday, I'll post the rest of the photos from the ceremony and reception. Worth the wait. Promise.

string art set design

Hello after a month long hiatus! Fall is my annual busy season, and I cannot seem to get out from under the never ending work to do's. Finally, I was able to sneak a bit of time to finish up this post on a stage set design to which I contributed a small part.

Massive undertaking of string art. You have my vote.

Neat, right?! My role was mostly art direction and some logistics. The creative team did an amazing job. And below is a fantastic video that documents a small part of the building process. Definitely worth the watch.

What do you think?! A fun stage design? Hoping to have time soon to show off some exciting things I've been working on!

All design concept and production by The Journey, Video by Strapping Productions, in-process photographs by Russ Mohr
