1. think: SPARKLE
literally, as in:
throughout Ben and Tracey's wedding day:
above: former SilverBox bride Jena Gaines of Shear Madness is Tracey's stylist
Tracey sparkled coming down the aisle at the amazing and historic First Christian Church:
below: and oh the sparkle on Tracey's face when she first saw her bouquet.
Rose from My Secret Garden continues to amaze + impress!!
Though this next image is NOT a Johnson grandbaby, look how lovely Nora looks - even when being fed chocalate drizzled fruit off a toothpick. :)
What a wonderful sparkle-filled day!

[Rachael Sparks that is, who'll soon be marrying the fabulously fun Andy Miller]
Oh those smiles say it all!
What a fun couple! Andy + Rachael and the stories they tell...oh, it's a laugh-a-minute!
Annika and I had a GREAT EVENING with these two.
The carnival pictures were taken at the Callaway County Fair in Fulton -- and this last one, a field across the way:
(an exiting car's headlights came at just the right time)
Special note on Rachael and Andy's slideshow.
No, there's no Valerie connection -- t's just that I'm LOVING this song. It's the song of the summer, I think. The good time soundtrack; kind of like funnel cakes at county fairs. It's just happy stuff. In fact, this song just delights me ~ makes me sing aloud and stand up and twirl and well....
being with Rachael and Andy has much the same effect. Click, spin + enjoy!
She'd mentioned the blue bike she'd had as a kid and Avery & I knew then and there what the perfect gift for this milestone birthday might be.
Would the word here be GLEE?
Walt's Bike Shop here in Columbia carries Electra bikes...vintage coaster + cruisers.
We added the basket on our own (and how cute is it?!) and stuck the gerbera daisies in for a bit of perky fun...
We'd found Avery's bike (above, left) at Walt's last year:
my little brother and his girlfriend caught up with us outside the store:
Though we can't compete with the Johnson's in sheer size, multi-generational family shots become real family treasures. So here's my mom as we went to dinner that evening to celebrate her 60th. Happy stuff indeed!
Hoping your world is all asparkle, too!
