Laura + Corey

As we anxiously await the photos by the talented Jarusha Brown, here is my camera’s version of Laura and Corey’s wedding day, August 27, 2009 (click thumbnails for the full images):

And for our last trip of the summer…

We traveled 6 hours internationally with an 11-month-old to the Gulf Islands in British Columbia. Little sister, Laura, is getting married! I have many photos to share, but here’s a first taste of the beautiful place Laura and Corey now call home:
Mayne Island.

These are some highlights of our Paris trip. The food was excellent, the city beautiful, but the best part was hanging out with some of our best friends in the whole wide world!

ParisPralus1
Chez Pralus, on rue Rambuteau, is the new Paris location of this famous Roannais pâtisserie. Known for their delicious praluline, but their chocolate is to die for.
