fabulous venue

a few months ago, i had the absolute pleasure of photographing a lovely new venue that has just opened up for 2009 weddings. the ranch is located in the santa cruz mountains and the venue comes with a wonderful coordinator and catering company. there is such a great feeling to the space and i was so excited to go out and take some photos that could be used for their website.
the venue is being kept under wraps as it is a private home so you have to go through the coordinator to get the address. if you are still looking for a venue, definitely put this place on your list!

we all have to think good thoughts for my mom this week. she is down in palm springs this weekend for a team in training bike ride - 100 miles! my mom is amazing. she signed up to do a team in training event at the same time that i signed up to do the half marathon. i am so proud of her!
i wanted to share a little project that i put together for valentine's day. i created these adorable little books with iphoto. the process is really simple and the hardest part was picking the right photos. the books are about the size of a credit card and the perfect size for your purse or wallet. i checked out a few other options on snapfish and kodak gallery but i liked the iphoto one the most and i was really pleased with the result.
have a lovely weekend!

my little girl is growing up so quickly!
she is talking like crazy now. it is so much fun to hear her speak although i can't say that i am so thrilled about the addition of the word 'mine' to her vocabulary.

i did it!

i finished a half marathon!
we got so lucky because the weather was absolutely gorgeous in san francisco. the course went through golden gate park and then along the beach and it was sunny and warm.
my mom, brother, husband and kids met me at the end which was wonderful.
team in training did a great job and it was so nice to hear 'go team' along the whole course. they really do an amazing job. all the donations from friends and family will go towards cancer research with the hope of finding a cure. no one deserves to go through the things my brother has to deal with. although my brother is amazingly strong, i know the chemo and radiation have not been easy. as i was going along the course and my legs began to hurt, i thought of my brother and knew that i could not stop.
so, i think i might sign up for another race....the next one might be a full marathon!
i will keep you posted on that!
