An Awesome Opportunity!

I am so behind on my blogging it is shameful. This fall has been INSANELY busy for me, but that is a wonderful thing! I have so many beautiful weddings and engagements that I will have up soon, but I had to do a quick post to share the incredible experience I had today.

I was contacted late last week inquiring about availability for a VIP event today. It turned out that the VIP was the First Lady, Laura Bush, who was scheduled to visit Lincoln's Birthplace National Historic Site. The National Parks Foundation, in partnership with The History Channel's Save Our History Campaign, kicked off a fundraiser event called "Give a Lincoln for Lincoln" to raise money for Lincoln related historic sites and in conjunction with the upcoming Lincoln bicentennial. (That's a lot of Lincolns for one sentence!) :)

I was pleased to pass the Secret Service's muster, and was granted all access during the event. I had a special Secret Service pin, as opposed to a regular press pass.  I was allowed to shadow the White House photographer, which meant I got to be much closer and have more access than the other media. It was really amazing; I got to walk right along with her as she toured the park and participated in several activities with local schoolchildren. I felt like a VIP myself!

Here are a few photos from the day that I wanted to share. It really was an incredible experience, and I am so grateful I was asked to be involved!

(Oh, and to those who know me, don't worry, I haven't turned republican on ya :)

Lauren and Michael are Married!

I don't even have the words to describe how beautiful this wedding was--absolutely everything about it!! Lauren has to be the happiest (and goes without saying, one of the most beautiful) brides I've ever seen. Isn't her dress fabulous?? They were married at the gorgeous Highland Baptist Church, and the ceremony was at the always fun Louisville Science Center. Ok, I'll shut up now and let the pictures do the talking for me :) (See the post script for my latest exciting news about all my recent computer issues!)

Ok Michael, don't forget to breathe!

YAY!!  (Lauren kept saying that all day :)

This is one of my favorite shots of the year.  Check out the SHOES!  I love the lady laughing in the background too :)

Whew!  Good times :)

Ok, my computer.  You might remember the great hard drive crash of late July 2008, followed closely by the great video card death of August 2008 (yes, 2 weeks later).  The hard drive was covered by the warrantee, which promptly expired a convenient 6 days before the video card died an untimely death.  This computer was less than a year old.  A Dell XPS, for those curious.  So last Wednesday (my birthday), I went out and came home with a brand new iMac.  So, the bad news is that I'm still running behind from having to transfer all my files and programs for the second time in a month.  The good news, though, is that I LOVE my new Mac, even though I'm still learning the new system.  So everybody please say a prayer to the computer gods (or whoever!) that my gremlins have finally left the house!
