A New Woman

Well, my name is new anyway, which is so weird.  I went and got myself hitched last week - we eloped, although my parents were there so I'm not sure it technically counts as eloping. We were going to Pismo Beach for a week, and we decided what the heck, let's get married. I so wasn't interested in any fuss or planning a big wedding, which is probably why we never did it.  But we thought, a quick wedding at a courthouse but in a special place, that sounded good.  So we got married at the courthouse in Santa Barbara, which is so beautiful.  Then we stayed the night at a hotel right on the beach - quite a change, going from a tiny bed in a trailer to a beautiful suite, it was heavenly.  Here are a few pictures:

" I do"

I'll be getting back to art soon, hopefully.  Between Thanksgiving next week and sinus surgery the week after that, my month is crazy, then it's full on Christmas. At this point, I'm just hoping to complete a few Christmas projects.  But I'll be arting vicariously through you guys!


  1. Oh WOW Terri... that is SO lovely... BIG congrats to both of you... love the shot of the boys looking on... yes very debonair... beautiful pics... hope the surgery goes well... and that you are able to find some snippets of time to create...

  7. Wa-hoo! congrats. I was driving home from work today thinking how I hadn't seen you post anything in a while and then BAM here you are, with wonderful news and great pictures.

  8. Oooooh! I'm slapping my hand for not congratulating you sooner!!
    CONGRATULATIONS you newlywed, you! It looks perfect - and that courthouse is so pretty - I have seen it and agree with you completely. BUT really, the bows are the best! Bravo and congrats and welcome home, xoxo!

  9. Yay!! Congrats congrats!! I think the way you did it was SO fabulous! We got married that way, but we couldn't go RIGHT to a honeymoon... that left us something to look forward to. Oh, the pups look almost as cute at you two! I'm very happy for you.
