Andy's family were as usual pretty welcoming. Andy's Mom gave me my most cherished Christmas gift, a stocking that took her 50 hours to make. Andy gave me some awesome gifts as well, including a print from Etsy, the Uchi cookbook (which really wasn't very practical in terms of ingredients but fun to look at). I think everyone knows that I love uchi and anthropologie since I got several gifts from there. YAY!
So much processed food. Everywhere was cake, bread, pie. I tweeted the food in the dessert table and it took two tweets: apple pie, Reese's pieces pie, orange slice pie, lemon merengue pie, pumpkin pie, cupcakes, almond divinity, brownies, cookies, carrot cake, white cake, coconut bread, pralines, etc
I gave really awesome gifts, if I may say so myself. I made Andy's sister a wedding album, and two parent albums. Andy's Dad looked through them.. and afterwards he said..."This is really good." Hah!
Andy got a barefoot sandal from luna sandals! And the War on Art book. As well as Greenling gift certificates.
I got Andy's Mom photo prints of Grannie Bea and Aunt Faye, and she teared up when she looked through them. Which I think is the best compliment I can get from my photos. The two of them are almost ninety and have several health problems. So I took several photos of them when they were in town in Austin in Feb.
Business: It's theoritically slow season, but I have 3 weddings to edit, 1 portrait session, as well as marketing materials to work on to get ready for booking season in January. Lots of stuff to do.
