Weekly Roundup 1.2 :: Cheryl Ford Photography


I love, love, love sunny yellow flowers and buy them as often as I can, which is typically each week when I go to the grocery store. Sometimes I mix it up, but I’m always searching for yellow flowers first.


+This week was all about recovery for me. The cold that hit me late last week kicked my proverbial butt over the weekend and into the early part of this week. So the BEST part of my week was actually starting to feel human again.
+I went to the Seattle “Get Hitched, Give Hope” benefit Thursday night with my beautiful friend, Hanna, and got to meet and network with some wonderful fellow wedding vendors!


+Last week I confessed to watching a crazy number of episodes of Alias. The truth is that I finished 5 seasons of Alias episodes in approximately 9 days! Keep in mind I was sick, in bed, for 3+ days and really had nothing else to do but watch TV and rest – and the last season was only 17 episodes instead of the usual 22 or 23 so that totally makes it less crazy. If anyone wants to talk about how flipping cute that Michael Vartan is, hit me up.
+During this cold, I blew through (haha) 1-1/2 boxes of Kleenex, a box of Sucrets, plus a half a bag of regular cough drops and a whole box of Advil Cold and Sinus – which is about the only thing that works for me when I’m sick. I can’t take Nyquil or cough syrup like normal people because I’m allergic to the main ingredient in most over-the-counter cold medication. [sob story]


+I felt broad sweeping, ginormous gratitude this week for my family, my sweet and funny husband and my sassy and (sometimes) sweet boys. They brighten my life. I’m ashamed to say that sometimes I take it all for granted and it takes hearing about horrible tragedies to whack my perspective back into place.
