progress my friends ~ PROGRESS!

July 20

Glenn and I are headed out of town tomorrow to visit our family in New Orleans for a few days (HELLO Cafe du Monde  & Hot Powdered  Sugary Messy  Fresh out of the fryer Beignets)  but before heading out I wanted to share a small accomplishment  with all of you.   I recently acquired Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Design Standard from my husband as a birthday present.  He knew I’d been wanting it for some time now.  I imagined it to be just another software product that I could download and start pounding out tons of creative ideas, graphics and other fun things.   Oh my I was so wrong!  My experience to date has been pretty frustrating only because I want everything done yesterday.   I had to force myself to understand that this will not be the case with my friend, Adobe CS 5.5.  I will not learn overnight, it will take me some time, patience and LOTS of practice.  I did however manage to put together the above graphic/image? with a little help from in designyou tube and

A super BIG HUG and THANK YOU to Amber Housley whom I met this past June at engage!12 for turning me onto

Till next time friends, have a great weekend!

Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary!

November 29

You make me happy in every way; I wake up each morning hoping to give you the same happiness.

I Glenn, take you Yvette as my friend and love, beside me and apart, in laughter and in tears, in conflict and tranquility, asking that you be no other than yourself, loving all that you are and continuing on our long life of happiness.

This December 2nd, marks our 5th wedding anniversary; I can’t believe it’s already been 5 years.  It doesn’t seem possible but yet here we are.  Our journey has been one of love, light, laughs, unforseen circumstances and some sorrows nonetheless we continue on our path together with the help of God’s gracious greatness.

With a HUGE SMILE I look forward to what is ahead and pray that we take each day to revive our kindness, respect and adoration for each other.  Glenn, I love you so much!  More than ever…I am certain that God always has a plan B.

Happy Anniversary my sweet love, friend and confidant!

Introducing Kilee & Tim! Family Farm Engagement Session

September 29

Back in 2003, after his freshman year in college, Tim was asked by his friend and fraternity brother Todd to join him for dinner with a group of 11 young ladies which Todd had gone to high school with. Not wanting to be the only man in the group, Todd invited Tim, and Tim eagerly accepted. Tim however had no idea that he was heading to a dinner that would eventually alter his future path.  It was when he was seated next to Kilee, that he met her for the first time. Kilee, a recent high school graduate, heading to her freshman year at the University of Indiana, while Tim was entering his second year of college at Miami of Ohio.

People say “Timing is everything” for this delightful couple this could not be truer!  Since their reunion in 2007, Kilee and Tim remain devoted to each other, their families and friends.

In March 2011 with the help of Kilee’s immediate family, Tim flew down to Boca Grande, Florida for a very special proposal.  During that same weekend the couple decided Boca Grande and Gasparilla Island would be the perfect backdrop for their romantic shabby chic destination wedding.

Throughout the last four years, the couple has enjoyed countless ventures in diverse places, yet Colorado seems to be among the couple’s favorite.   Many new voyages await Kilee and Tim this upcoming year, as their chosen event planner, I am over the moon thrilled and blessed to be part of such a meaningful celebration.
