The July that changed the world.


July has been beautiful and blessed beyond belief.  We've had more fresh cherry pies than you could shake a stick at curtesy of my budding baker sister, there was a hay stacking party that turned into a sunset music video/jam session in a friend's orchard.  With fireworks and smoke bombs.

There's been dancing, and cherry picking, and sneaking into my bro's house while he was out of town to short sheet the bed, plant party poppers, hard boil some of the eggs, and, of course, draw faces on them.  I wonder if he'll ever give me his house keys again...
  
Then, there was the 2013 Summer Bridal Collection KFD shoot, with tulle skirts and golden light and absolutely beautiful girls that I am so blessed to call my friends.  They were amazing.  Post on that coming up!

Then.  Then things really started happening.  I had the incredible privilege of a visitor from Florida last week, my dear friend Winnie.  We stayed in a wonderful old B&B and I got to introduce her to many of my favorite haunts and favorite people.
And to crown what seemed like a surreally perfect visit already, Winnie and I found ourselves sitting down to lunch in Coeur d'Alene with one of the most inspirational and dynamic women I've ever met, MaryJane Butters.  It was indescribable.  Sitting down with two treasured friends to work out the world's problems and swap yarns steeped in our Farmgirl heritage - though we three had never seen each other the week before - felt like a dream come true that I never even knew I had.  It was beautiful.
But that deserves a post of it's own, too.

I hope you're having a full-to-the-brim Summer of joy, life, and dreams coming true.  
Because no matter how long you have to wait and strive, dreams that you believe in will.  Oh, they will.

  6. It looks like you are enjoying a beautiful and exciting summer!! I do hope that you will post about your meeting with Mary Jane Butters. I have long enjoyed her books and her old-fashioned "homey" style.

    May the LORD continue to bless you Kellie!

It was a dream come true for me to finally be in Idaho and meet family, friends , and of course Mary Jane!! Time passed by too quickly. But each adventure was special and exciting!! And those cherry pies? They were flat out awesome! I was so lucky to be a part of these fabulous Summer days of July 2013!!!
