the end of november

the door is in and the light in our house is great! i can't wait to get the drywall in and get the room painted. not sure if we're sticking with the green or not but i think that's the plan so far.
the weekend of the 17th i traveled to california to see my wonderful friends get married. what an amazing weekend full of love. the best part of the weekend (aside from the marriage of two fantastic people) was the fact that even though i'm not technically "friends" with any of these people (in fact i'm pretty much a stranger), they welcomed me as one of them and made me feel like part of the family for the entire weekend. friends of karen are friends of mine i guess! thanks to all of you and congratulations to brian and karen. photos are here

what can i say about today? ryan started the day by cutting more drywall from our the south wall in our kitchen. he's installing french doors out onto our new deck. nothing like building it but not being able to access it! so that should be done tomorrow. then we had dinner with friends chet and kerri. their son chet and max had fun playing together. kerri and i spent some time going through photographer websites and blogs of women who i wish i could grow up to be. they're so talented and creative and just kind people at can tell! i keep my hopes that i will be able to improve my photography and hopefully pick up some good ideas and tips along the way. winter is rapidly approaching and so i worry that there won't be many opportunities for good photos but hope that the new doors will provide more than adequate light to photograph max and owen. there just aren't enough minutes in the day to look at my sweet boys. God's blessings to everyone.
