I love me some tulips!

The other day I went over by the Iwo Jima Memorial and took tons of photos of the gorgeous tulips that were near by.  So many vibrant colors, I loved it.  Here are some of my favorite shots. 🙂

Hello Harbor

About a month ago I ordered these lovely business cards on Esty from Hello Harbor.  Katherine, the designer, sent me two options and said she could do both if I liked.  Here’s what they look like.  I am soooo excited to give them out! 🙂

P.S. Check out her blog she’s amazing. 🙂

Small Enough

Oh great God
Be small enough
To hear me now
There were times when I was crying
From the dark of Daniel’s den
I had asked you once or twice
If you would part the sea again
Tonight I do not need a
Fiery pillar in the sky
Just want to know you’re gonna
Hold me if I start to cry

Oh great God
Be small enough to hear me now
Oh great God
Be close enough to feel you now
(Oh great god be close to me)
There have been moments when I could not face
Goliath on my own
And how could I forget we marched
Around our share of Jerichos
But I will not be setting out
A fleece for you tonight
Just wanna know that everything will be alright
Oh great god be close enough to feel me now

All praise and all the honor be
To the god of ancient mysteries
Whose every sign and wonder
Turn the pages of our history
But tonight my heart is heavy
And I cannot keep from whispering this prayer
Are you there?

And I know you could leave writing
On the wall that’s just for me
Or send wisdom while I’m sleeping
Like in Solomon’s sweet dreams
But I don’t need the strength of Sampson
Or a chariot in the end
Just wanna know that you still know how many
Hairs are on my head
Oh great God (Are you small enough)
Be small enough to hear
Me now

Orchid Exhibit

A couple of weekends ago my roommates and I went to the Botanical Gardens they were featuring an Orchid Exhibit.  It was really fun and I got to take a lot of colorful pictures.  Here are a few of my favorite…

Let’s Hear it for New York

My good friend Amy is coming to visit my roommate Taryn and I today for about a week.  Saturday we will be adventuring up to NYC for the day, yay!  I hope we can fit all the things we want to do in our short day, we have all been before but never together.  And yes, this song comes to my mind… 🙂

There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York

Inspiration for the Day!

RISK – more than others think is safe.
CARE – more than others think is wise.
DREAM – more than others think is practical.
EXPECT – more than others think is possible.

It is FREEZING Here!

Yay! I made it to Arlington, VA.  So far I have bought groceries and furniture, been to Target twice, Starbucks, and an Irish Pub.  Everything is very different from HI and AZ for sure.  The drivers are not too friendly, but I’ll get used to it. Tomorrow we are having a dinner party so I can meet  some friends of my roommates.  I am still trying to find a job and will press hard on Monday, cross your fingers! 🙂

My latest find for a venue for either a ceremony and/or reception is Blackstone Country Club in AZ.  The family I babysit for belongs to the country club and it is absolutely gorgeous!  There are two lawn areas and they both have amazing views.  There weren’t too many pictures on their website but if you go to their Facebook page there are plenty more. 🙂 One of my good friends is getting married here in April and I believe it will be fabulous!

Lastly before I head off to bed… tonight I was asked why I love weddings so much.  I tried to answer in a million words but have now narrowed it down. I love weddings because it’s someones fairytale coming true, whether it be a small or huge wedding, simple or extravagant it’s their dream and a new future beginning.

Washington D.C.

I’m getting excited for my new adventure coming up!  I just bought my one way ticket to D.C. and leave the 27th!  So, of course I have been researching wedding photographers, wedding coordinators, venues and much more.  I’m really excited about this website which has TONS of useful information about planning a wedding in the D.C. area.  You can check it out here. Make sure you click on the “Bridal Party Blog” link and read the Always a Bridesmaid.  Katie Bunker writes about her adventures of being a bridesmaid and give advice also!

I also came across Egomedia Photography and fell in love with their photos! I feel they capture all the emotion that went on at each wedding they have on their site.  If you know of any other must see photographers in the D.C. area let me know!

Have a great 3 day weekend!!!

My Finding for Today…

Today I stumbled across My Kate Parker Wedding website.  All I have to say is I hope I can someday have a website like this one.  It has so much advice on just about anything you could have a question for and is super easy to navigate through.  Also, if you are planning a wedding you can create a profile and it will create lists for you to check things off of, keeps track of your budget, and has tons of inspirations!

I finally got some pictures from one of my best friend’s wedding in May 2009. It was such a fun day I asked if we could do a repeat… her dad said no. 😉 The photos  were taken by Artisan Photography here are a few. Enjoy. 🙂
