Peanut Butter and I think I'm going to die.

My dog, Jazz, LOVES peanut butter.  It's cute when you even say the words, she licks her lips... like she can just taste it!  So she has her very own jar.  We dip her new and used raw hides in the peanut butter jar, covering the tip, and she just goes to town.  Well, here's the problem.  The jar that WAS hers is really small.  Her raw hides couldn't fit in it, so I got her a bigger jar, and stored the small jar in the pantry for refilling purposes.  Can you see where I'm going with this story?  Well yesterday, I turn into Old Mother Hubbard with nothing in my cupboard... except for a yummy jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread.  Yes, I made myself a peanut butter and honey half sandwich.  Jazz totally looked at me like "why the heck are you eating my peanut butter?"..  And I just told her that this is my treat, and gave her some of her own. 
Fast forward to the middle of the night, Jazz wakes me up to go potty.  (I know I need to break this habit of hers.)  So our routine is I get up with her, let her go potty, put her in the crate in the living room and I fall asleep on the sofa.  Well this particular night, I decided to have a little bit of PB before I go back to sleep.  I put the yummy, but filthy substance in my mouth, and instantly realize "omg, I'm eating the dog's peanut butter.. omg, omg, omg.."  I spit out what was in my mouth and washed and gargled like crazy.  EW!  I mean, ewwwwww..   If I don't die of some kind of dog germ disease, I think I'll die from being so disgusted!  Bleck!!
Here is my favorite picture of her from a few months ago.  I think it's time I take some more of her.

Molly + Jeb.. amazing Naples weekend

Molly, Jeb and I all went to high school together.  Best school ever, Bolton High School in Alexandria, LA.. Class of '01.  Molly was the adorable Class President and Jeb, the school brain.  They didn't start dating until 6 years after high school!  Talk about re-uniting!  He was living in Houston, she's living in Orlando, and he ended up moving here for her!  Awww!  3 years later, he takes her on a surprise trip to St. Augustine and proposed!!  Double awwww!!  Imagine my excitement when I read that Molly wants to do an engagement session!!  I wanted to scream with pure joy.  Not only do I get to re-unite with my old classmates, but I get to have the honor of shooting their engagement session!!  I was even more excited when we made plans to go to Naples for the weekend and do the shoot!  Hello Naples vacation!!  We took sooo many pictures.. And they are so beautiful and super photogenic, nearly every single one of them turned out perfect.  We had so much fun, I didn't want to come home.  Molly & Jeb, anytime you wanna take another trip, let me know!!

We were brainstorming of ideas, and she mentioned they like to play chess.  I wanna say Jeb won one, and Molly won one..  right??  Or let's just say Molly won one.

How cute are they.. really.

Oh Molly, you are just precious.  PRECIOUS!

Perfect early morning.  Nice and cool, and the beach was gorgeous!

Precious, and STUNNING!!  Hello, Molly!!

Jeb, you are quite the hunk!

This is my American Eagle picture.  :)

Shanna + Wayne

This is one of the sweetest stories I've heard.  Shanna and Wayne met while playing an online game.  They talked and talked, and fell in love from a distance... get this, Wayne is from Australia!!  Complete with fun accent and everything.  So really, think of the obstacles they had to go through!  Only REAL, true love can survive that.  I believe that with all of my heart.  So he came here to visit a few times, and she went to visit him... They got engaged and eventually, he made the big move to America!  WOW, I mean, that takes guts!  Again, real love..  what he wouldn't do for Shanna!  It was a complete honor to do their wedding.  My favorite part of the day, watching Wayne and Shanna together, how they interact.. how he loves her and takes care of her.  Shanna & Wayne, congratulations on your marriage.  Really, from the bottom of my heart, I wish yall nothing but the very best.  : )
