My friend Marie sent me a link to this awesome site today that was featured on the Today Show, so I decided to do a second Show & Tell for the week ūüôā

I’ve already laughed and teared up all in the matter of a minute of reading, but I’m in love. ¬†Enjoy!

Last week, my friend Amanda and I had a chance to volunteer at the Loring Community School’s Kid’s Cook event. ¬†This garden is in a schoolyard and creators of the program, Robin, Starla & Susan volunteer their time to plant, harvest and cook each year with any neighborhood children who would like to join. ¬†They are working to promote healthy eating among youth by teaching them how they can create their own organic, healthy food. ¬†These ladies are amazing, let me tell you.

The night Amanda and I were able to join in the fun, the kids had harvested several types of greens, peas, and veggies and were working to create some tasty salads for their meal.

The program was being honored that night by the state for promoting a safe & healthy environment with the Wellness by Design Gold Award.  Way to go!!!undefinedundefined

Yes, there are hens that lay eggs!!!! ¬†By far the coolest garden I’ve ever seen!

Next, Robin demonstrated how to make a yummy peach salad while explaining about all of the ingredients and teaching how to prepare them.  The kids dove right in to helping!undefinedundefinedundefined

Time to eat!!!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

After the meal, it was time for some fun.  Strawberry races were an intense but fun activity that all the kids did such a great job doing!!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I recently traveled to Boston to photograph the gorg wedding of the lovely Dan & Tia. ¬†If you haven’t yet, check out Dan & Tia: Part 1.

The day of the wedding arrived and it couldn’t have been more gorgeous outside. ¬†As the bride and groom showed up separately as not to see each other before the ceremony, excitement grew, dresses were laced up, and suit coats were buttoned. ¬†Many a story was passed around and laughter was everywhere. ¬†I knew it was going to be one of those wedding where you just can’t help but have a blast.

Guests began to arrive at the beautiful Saphire Estates as the bridal party toasted the bride & groom.  The  sun was shining as Dan took his spot in the front of the crowd and gasps were heard as the stunning Tia and her father walked down the aisle. . .

The reception began with some amazing speeches by Dan’s sister Lindsay and brother Mike, followed by the touching toast by maid of honor, Sheena.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

The dance began a bit later and boy, did this group of people know how to party!!  undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

Dan & Tia – I cannot begin to express how much fun I had with you guys over your wedding weekend. ¬†I’m honored to be the person you chose to capture your moments and happy to call you friends!! ¬†Congratulations again and nothing but the best to your future together!!!undefined
