Where has she been?

She (myself) has had one whirlwind after another over the summer and fall.

First, my brother got married. If you’ve ever had a wedding in your family (and I assume you have) you know what that entails.

I had the privilege of being the florist for his wedding….

I was asked to do a book cover for a friend who is self-publishing a juvenile novel.

My sister got ENGAGED and I threw her a bridal shower!

I took a weekend off from life to go camping with a group of other Christian young adults, and hiking in our glorious Adirondack mountains.

I very nearly finished a seascape painting for a friend… but not quite. Here’s a detail of it.

I took another weekend trip with friends to Old Orchard Beach. I saw first-hand how much better God is at painting seascapes than I am. 😉

And I spent two months planning my sister’s wedding, which took place this past Saturday.  It was a beautiful, joyful day. Here is the bride and groom with her siblings.  Oh, I did the flowers for this wedding, too!

Today… today I am officially chilling. Catching up on Downton Abbey, taking a nap, eating left-over wedding food and reading a newly released novel written by my friend Louise

  1. Hi Valerie! What a busy lady you’ve been – it looks like you’ve made yourself rather indispensable to those you love 🙂 You have such a gift for making things beautiful and it’s clearly seen in the little snapshots of your endeavors!
    God bless,
    – A
