This post has gone to the dogs!

It's a good thing I love dogs because there were a bunch of them in Providence this past weekend! I headed over to the Convention Center with Steph and we watched all the show dogs do their thing, and got to talk with a few breeders and even play with a few...dogs that is...not the breeders...that'd just be weird. Steph found her favorite breed, the mini schnauzer, and even got to help a breeder holding on to a pair. And I found mine, the Bernese mountain dog! They're big loveable and cuddley. The one I met had paws the size of my fist. He was the kind of dog you'd want to snuggle on a cold night because they're so warm and fluffy. Anyways, enjoy the photos and keep you eyes out for some new B&W ones too!

the mini schnauzer...they always look mad!

i didn't know Christmas elves traveled this far south

the great dane...I wanted to strap a saddle on his back and go for a ride. those things are huge!

this one reminded me of my old dog Sam. except he was black and not brown.

"You looking at me?"

"Get me off of this thing!"

Meg & Brian's Wedding & A Trip to Newport

Well what better to do on a cloudy day then post some pictures that make me forget about the clouds, impending rain, and my runny nose. (Don't worry, it's not the swine.) This past weekend, Steph and I, along with many other friends, headed over to New Paltz, NY. Where's that? Well...between NYC and Albany, hidden in the mountains. Although driving to the top of the mountain was scary as all heck, the wedding was absolutely beautiful. Even more beautiful was one of my close friends, Meg. She and Brian had met at the Mohonk Resort, so how fitting that they got married there. The fog rose right after they said their "I do's" and you could see the lake and the rest of the rocks surrounding it. So now here are the photos for Meg and Brian's wedding. Thanks you two for a fantastic time!

And then this past Monday, Steph and I didn't want to miss out on the beautiful day, and we went down to the Breakers in Newport. It was cold and windy, but luckily we got some good shots and good fudge too. I gave Steph my camera to take a few photos, so there are a few featured photos by her too. So all in all, enjoy the photos!

First dance.

I don't think I saw a frown from anyone that day.

Meg- You were gorgeous!
