Winners of the Lisa Leonard Jewelry!

Heeeeeey!  I know you've been waiting to hear the winners from the last giveaway.  I like to keep suspense high, you know? Either that, or---- I'm always overwhelmed after a giveaway and find it impossible to choose the winners.

But, without further teasing, the winners are:

CANDACE SHEETS who thinks the birdie flying out of the cage necklace would be so appropriate for her life right now. Thanks for your comment, Candace, and good luck with your new life!

TRACI, who wants the "Be Still" necklace, just cuz she likes it the best.  Traci, enjoy- I loved that one too, so I give it up for the carpe diem bracelet, which was my very fave. 

If you gals who liked the Carpe Diem bracelet want to share with me, I'm cool with that! But first, you'll have to move to Temecula :)  Candace and Traci, I'll email you for your addresses and then, you'll get your goodie in the mail! YAY FOR LISA LEONARD!

So. This week has been nothing short of amazing. Right now, Tyler and I are doing a photo tour of North and South Carolina and Georgia, and it has been so lovely.  This part of the country is gorgeous.  Especially today- we drove through South Carolina to North Carolina, and everything is so green and yet just beginning to change seasons. YUM. 

The weather was gorgeous, too.  I mean, sure... we lost out on some sessions due to POURING RAIN, but every once in a while, it's good to see the heavens open and hear some roaring thunder. It's like a treat for Tyler and I.  So imagine us driving through rolling country roads, through beautiful green pastures and forests, and the low clouds just barely touching the trees in the distance...

Eh.  There's a reason I'm not a writer.  I'm lame at any description. But, just try to imagine it.  WORK WITH ME! Soon enough you'll see the most embarrassing video of all time of me frolicking through the landscapes of North Carolina.  Yay?

Tonight's last session was met with pouring, pouring rain.  Our clients were like, "Hmm? What rain?"  And we held the session anyway.  It was so fun.  Fun to shed all inhibitions. Fun to run and frolic and snuggle up under umbrellas.  I tried to not scare them away with too much unwanted snuggling, after all, we had just met.

After the sesh, soaking wet, Ty and I headed to Asheville to Fiddlin' Pigs, a local bbq/eatery.  Before I combust into happy giddy freakouts due to such a wonderful memory, let me quickly say:

THERE WERE OVER 30 CLOGGERS THERE AND SOME OF THEM WERE TINY KIDS AND SOME OF THEM WERE MEN, GROWN MEN, DANCING, IN CLOGGING SHOES... AND ALSO, A BANJO.

If you know me at all, and I mean AT ALL, you will know what this means to me. 

Bliss.  Pure Bliss.

I HEART APPALACHIA!

(just one from our wonderful rainy session today.  I love the baby's expression! Her parents are over the moon about her!)
