Hello folks! Despite the forecasts calling for rain all day today, I woke up to bright blue skies, the sun shining and birds chirping! I also woke up with a clear head, thankyouverymuch. There's so much I could get done today! Ah, I love that feeling.
First off, I'm going to run out to the ranch with the dogs and mess around with the horses a bit. They both need baths badly! Then, I might actually clean house and do some laundry. Oh my!
Anyone else have big weekend plans?
In the last of the wedding saga, things were getting started at the barn during cocktail hour. But Cowboy H and I weren't there yet! We had whisked away to some special locations for our couple's portraits.
We started at this mustard yellow barn, which is kind of a landmark in my small hometown. In elementary/jr. high, my school bus used to stop here to pick up kids! And, my great-grandfather actually built this barn! How cool is that?
I've shown you this one before, but its one of my absolute favorites, so its worth sharing again. Eventually, this one's going on the wall!
From the yellow barn, we moved down the road a little ways into the orange groves. In this location, we were actually directly across the road from the reception!
From here, we actually went to the reception location, but snuck around a bit taking pictures before joining the party. All the "props" you see in the following photos are permanent residents of the barn and its surrounding areas!
By now, we had been spotted and some of our guests gathered round to watch the behind the scenes.

Please note that Cowboy H is actually trying to drive the mini John Deere.
And with that, I headed straight for the appetizer table!
