Julie's wedding and the first half of my fellowship.

John and Julie got married this past weekend. I was a bride's maid, along with a few of Julie's friends from UR Lauren, Kristen, Shelby; her closest/childhood friend from NOLA Emily; her sister Amy and her sister-in-law, Ryan. It was such a wonderful weekend. We had a bachelorette party on Thursday (pedicures, Mexican food, and some bar in the Fan), rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner on Friday, and the ceremony and reception on Saturday.
It was a ton of fun, and I can't believe that as I type, John and Julie Farmer are gallavanting in the mountains, on their honeymooooooooon!
Here are some pictures for you folks who I know are anxious to see them.

Shelby and Lauren--we were waiting for Julie's car to get to the chapel and were on VIP mission so that no boys saw Julie (especially not Juan).

Also, I have been working on some illustrations for le book--about a girl who get s bicycle (I can hear dad going B-I-C-Y-C-L-EEEEEEEE) and imagines all the places she could visit. As you read you go to different cities and she acquires one thing from each city and she puts those things her bicycle basket. Here are the second drafts:

And another painting, too.
