Preview of Paradise

A week on Kauai, then road tripping up the California and Oregon coast made for a honeymoon in paradise.  High adventure, unbelievable beauty, and little sleep headed the agenda, and I think it's safe to say we kicked off our new life together pretty much perfectly.

More adventuring photos to come!

Us | The day in a million words

Our day was unbelievably blessed.  The sky was a perfect cathedral of blue heaven rimmed with shimmering green and gold and the majestic mountains I love so much.
We were surrounded by loving faces and helping hands.  Joy and beauty ran wild.  We could feel God's peace and power almost as a tangible thing, wrapping around us and everyone present.  The bagpipes had a mind of their own and my veil tried to eat me at the end of the isle, the dancing was crazy awesome and doing aerials in a wedding dress was much less disastrous than I anticipated.  Dancing for the very first time with my husband was aaammazing.

Celebrating the end of the second-by-second countdown to becoming one with my love and the start of our forever through Christ's love.
It was absolutely the best day ever.

One of the countless awesome blessings we experienced during the planning process was meeting the VanHoutans - Daniel and Abby Jo found us through my blog, and we instantly connected through a love of all things vintage, filmmaking, and the forgotten arts.  They are such an awesome couple with a beautiful family, and their talent is absolutely staggering.  Having them film our wedding day was a complete joy.

They're celebrating their new website, ForgottenWayFilms.com, by offering a fabulous 50% off wedding films booked for June 2015!  Check it out here!

I'm so excited to share the highlight video they put together for our day.

 Christopher and I are getting settled into our little home and I can't wait to share the wedding photos!  My studio is almost all set up again, and the shop is now filling orders once more.  It's so good to finally be home.

Literary Heroine Blog Party and Giveaway - 2015

You are cordially invited. . . 

To the Fifth annual Literary Heroine Blog Party!
~ February 16-28 ~

Are you enthralled with the charming stories of heroines of yesteryear? Do you thrill at the sight of a lovely, century-old book? Have you ever read a favorite novel up in the airy retreat of a graceful tree? Do you often catch yourself thinking of the inhabitants of Orchard House or Pemberley as not only very real, but intimate friends? If so, I hope you will plan on joining me for this exciting online party.

Read all of the fabulous entries from years past!

This has become such a fun tradition for me, as every year on my birthday the LHBP is posted and scores of lovely ladies around the world link up their entries to the blog party quiz.  This year is a little different from previously as I've been slightly distracted with wedding planning and living life and wonderfulness, so we're a day late on posting.
We're also streamlining the blog party with a single giveaway hosted by my Etsy shop, Kellie Falconer Design.

Here's how it works: 

* As your hostess, I will provide a linkup at the end of this post. All you must do is answer the questions below, making them your own with your unique personality and way with words. Then sign the guestbook at the end of this post in the form of the link to your blog post!
* Via the guestbook/link pool, have fun mingling, visiting each other's blogs and getting to know one another better!

~The Giveaway~

You can certainly enter the giveaway without participating in the blog party, but I hope you'll join in both!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The winner will be drawn at random on February the 28th.
