David Lujan of Gallery Black Lagoon

People at Work Series.

From the April wedding in Austin, Texas.

David Lujan co-owner(with his wife) & curator of Black Lagoon: art+ yoga and artist.  He tended the bar at the wedding celebration and made the little fairy chairs out of the champagne tops. He was sketching a tree house for his daughter, as I remember.  I must carry a reporter’s notebook to write down the details.

Gathering: Weekly Photo Challenge





Lots of gatherings documented throughout the course of a year and a few from years ago.

The group photos pose a challenge, getting everyone with you simultaneously.  I’ve included some more candid shots.

Happy Birthday to my DIL

You’ve seen her featured on the blog if you’re a follower.

This blog sends lots of love from your MIL on your special day! Erika is a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, friend and DIL and a beautiful person, inside and out.  She ‘s really good to me and I’m so fortunate.  That whole “in-law relationship” can be tricky, eh Erika?  I try to be a good one, too.

(You watch, she’s going to let me know that Henry and Josie, the Airedales, would have liked their photos on the blog today, too!)

Jarrod and Lauren’s Wedding Day

A first peek at some of the highlights of Jarrod and Lauren’s Wedding.  The weather was cooperative in that the summer thunderstorm didn’t start until they were safely inside the reception. Perfect timing!

Two caricaturists captured the guests happy expressions. The bride had her caricature done by Jeffrey D. Harris at a festival in 2007 or 8 and tracked him down for her wedding. He was assisted by Dave.  The bride and groom put their likeness in a frame and all the guests signed the surrounding mat.

Pittsburgh weddings delight in their cookie tables and Jarrod and Lauren’s was something to see! (and delicious to taste)

The bride’s attention to detail was evident throughout the day.  A lovely wedding. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. James.

Their two dogs are important to them although they didn’t attend the wedding they were featured in the cake topper silhouette.


Working together to get the wedding cake’s first piece out and onto a plate. It’s more difficult than it looks!
