Sunflowers + an anniversary trip


In the classic movie You've Got Mail, Kathleen Kelly played by the ever-charming Meg Ryan says, "They're so friendly. Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?" when Joe Fox, played by Tom Hanks, surprises her with a bouquet when she's sick.

If a handful of daisies are friendly, how about a whole field of sunflowers?

When Dean & I were driving through West Chester, OH, on the way to visit our nieces & nephew, I spotted the glorious field of bright yellow dots up ahead. SUNFLOWERS! I have always wanted to frolic around & photograph in a field of these beauties. Anyone getting married in or near a sunflower field? I'd love to photograph your wedding :)

Being the wonderful husband that he is, Dean helped make my photo dream come true! We pulled into a parking lot across the street & darted across, camera gear in tow, for our mid-day frolicking.


P.S. No flowers were harmed in the midst of our shooting. We plucked this flower off of a fallen, uprooted stalk :)


With our upcoming 1-year anniversary (it is hard to believe it's been that long since we said I do!), Hubby & I will be driving to Mont Tremblant to celebrate next week! It's been years since I've crossed the border into Canada (family vacay, circa 1995 or so) & we are SO excited to spend time exploring the beautiful town, hiking through trails, reading great books & cuddling together. Have any of y'all been to Mont Tremblant/Quebec area? We'd love to hear your recommendations for places to see & restaurants to try!
