Up, Up and Away

Finally! After waiting around all day, Blogger finally let me post an entry. Just in time to take off for cooler climes. I'll be back on Monday-ish and hopefully full of inspiration and with my vim renewed.
In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of an Amish Wedding Reception.
My family lives in the heart of the Amish community in Indiana. There are always a few things that the Amish need from the 'English' and one of those things is access to a camera for 'secret' photo shoots! The Plain People do not keep photos or photo albums, but I don't know an Amish wife that does not have a contraband of hidden pictures of her family tucked into the cookbook or other hiding place.

These pictures were taken by my aunt as a request from her neighbor. They are her daughter's highly decorated wedding reception hall. I thought they were so pretty I wanted to share them!
