Anniversary Time....

Ready to celebrate with me?
----------Then come in our little round door....
pretty yourself up....



& I'll force you to look at some pics of Rick and I as kiddos....
And show you our mushroom house after we got it "wedding ready" - (workin' on it still..;)









and a couple shots of the 'before'---- whew! (midway..mind you---yap!)









Now I can talk your ear off about a special time...
2 years ago today....
we had a hobbitland wedding--



Fairies and elves, Centaurs and gnomes, beasts & belly dancers..even the sun and moon attended our wedding at the same time. Married at heart for 11 years, we wanted this to a be a celebration of life for all - and not just about us solely. Indeed...to give some hearty cheer to our friends and family too... a proper Hobbit Bash, witha keg of brew, meat pies, cheese- and of course...Rick's favorite, movie theatre popcorn all around.







Rick and I are two completely different artists that found common ground in our passion to create against all odds,- and stay true to our own visions. To inspire one another...even when you feel like you want to give up or become something that's 'steady' forever....Nope. It's there. the drive to create with our own two hands is our blessing and our curse. Always learning new ways to create whats in our wild minds is a journey in itself. It's hard to relay the feelings you can go through as an artist- day to day....To go beyond the 'survive' of it all and find something that can drive you into happiness and madness at the same time.



I thank you for taking the time to read about such a special day in my life. We worked so hard to make it what it was - and for the rest of our lives, because you never know how long you're going to be here. I've been finding that out -all to well- the last few years...

Take the time to enjoy your friends. sit- and don't check you phone for an hour--or a day. Real life is out there- not just in cyber space- and I have to remind myself to stop. and feel- and just look.



I wish us all calmness and passion all at once... to stop and notice the little things - and then dance for hours on end.



*Thank you so much to our friends and family who attended our wedding 2 years ago - and to those up in the sky who could only BE- in spirit. I'll be posting a link to some of our wedding pictures HERE later today...Bear with me- it's only been two years... ;)



Much Love, Miss (Mrs.) Mindy
( sorry guys- too hard to change my artsy name to Mrs. Mindy - makes me sounds way too sophisticated.-- ;)

Oh and the lovely quote from Vita Sackville-West which I gave in my toast "There is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown through the years from the small acorn of passion into a great-rooted tree"

I love you Mr. & Mrs. O'Brien!
