I still get excited when I get an e-mail from my web-site about a prospect/client.
It's my first peek into their world.
Sometimes they tell me a little about themselves; sometimes they even talk about some of you –
and what they have read and have seen here from what I post.
Opening those e-mails is like opening up an unexpected gift. It never gets old for me.
I'm blessed to have the best clients ever.
I have much to be thankful for this year as I do every day.
This little business has gone in a direction that I never expected or saw coming,
but I wouldn't be here today without the help of the most wonderful people ever.
My family, who puts up with my crazy schedule, late nights and at times cereal for dinner.
My parents and in-laws who has gotten me through this hectic season by helping out with the kids.
Katie, my amazing graphic designer who is sooo patient with me and not only comes up
with fabulous card/album layouts, helps with editing/re-touching, but is also at times my therapist.
Not that I really need one ; )
My peers, for always setting the bar higher and making me want more from my work and for all the fabulous referrals.
My second photographers. There aren't enough words. I'm beyond grateful.
Mentors, vendors and venues who support my business and have become friends along the way.
And last but certainly not least, I'm thankful for each and every reader who puts up with my grammar hiccups,
shares in my client's memories and some of mine.
I hope this Thanksgiving you're surrounded by great stories, delicious food and cozy homes.
Enjoy every second creating new memories this year and celebrating old traditions.
Below is a peek at a gorgeous tablescape from Avaflora and lovely stationery from Ipanema Press.
I'm smitten with their work.
I love when fruit, veggies and herbs are brought into centerpieces or details!
Layering looks awesome on tablescapes!
Such a fun quirky font and a special way to greet the table guests.
I wish I had more time, I would love to do menu cards.
A beautiful centerpiece with layers, texture, depth and autumn colors.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
