October, the New Month of Looooooovveee

Annnnddddd now we are onto October… and October of 2015 was a doozy. Not only did we have Halloween to contend with (and 5 costumes of which were all somewhat handmade), but a very important wedding. It is not every day you get to be in a THEMED wedding in a park for a friend who is more a sister to you than pretty much anyone on the planet. AND see her looking gorgeous and feel rather pretty yourself to boot. HEREIMG_20151011_003110

Halloween this year was the year of all handmade… each and every costume had at least a touch of our personal handy work on it. HERE.
