because you asked nicely

I have had a couple questions about "trash the dress." Here's the deal:

A "trash the dress" session is done after the wedding. The bride's dress doesn't have to be perfect anymore. It can get a grass stain here or get a little wet there. I LOVE looking at these sessions, so I was totally excited when T asked me to do one with her and her husband. She was up for just about anything. I love how her dress looked in the water. It floated on top and created this canvas around her. It got dark really quickly, but we got some great shots. Anyway, the idea isn't to destroy the dress (her's wasn't). The idea is to take shot that you wouldn't have considered on your big day because you wouldn't want to mess up your dress.

Also, I had a question about my vegetarian kick. I knew going into it that it would only be for 1 month. I just wanted to try it. I wanted to see if I could do it. I did. It wasn't as hard as I thought. I did go through a couple of days of craving protein (or at least in my head that what I thought I was craving), but I settled that with nuts and eggs. I finished back in September, but it has really changed my whole view of veggies. I MISSED them so much when my month was up that I continue to eat much more than I used to. I substitute them on sandwiches for meat. I eat them for snacks more often. I eat more meals that don't center around meat. It's been a wonderful experience and I'm really glad I did it. I'm also really glad to eat Chick-Fil-A again. Give it a try if you never have before. It's surprising how much you CAN eat. It really didn't limit me like I thought it would.

Amazing!!! You are very talented :) Thanks so much for the update, by the way! I'm still at it, it's hard, but I'm giving it it's fair shot. That's great that you enjoyed it and it had such positive effects on your diet. I miss Chik-fil-A a whole bunch and chinese food with chicken and hamburgers, i miss them a LOT.
