We were blessed with a beautiful, though hot and humid day.  Wed had off and on rain the previous days, so of course we were praying against it.  Someone up there likes us :)
The day before, the shoot concentrated on a wee little garden Ms. Sue created.  I think she had way too much fun with this one.  Maybe a throwback to her childhood?
It was absolutely amazing...right down to the cute little tetherball game.  Ooops...did I let out a little secret (or is it just a tease)?  Like I said, she had way too much fun on this one.
And the gardens?  They were exquisite!
The second day was the party.  And we were serving up some good eats.  Hmmmmm.  Unfortunately after a day in the sun, didnt think it was a good idea to eat any of it.  Bummer.....
Here Nick, the art director, is barking out orders (just kidding Nick).  He was the bestest!
And then there were the horse jumping thingys.  Like my technical lingo?  Hahaha!
The kids were sure having fun with them.
Can you say cheese?  Or maybe I should say trifle.  Dang, did I let out another secret?
Let me tell you, these kids were hysterical!  Can we have more sugar please? 
Now to see how the pictures all turned out!
Can you say Photo Opp?  Dang...someone forgot  to tell me (and Nick) to be in the Realtor stance.  My bad!

I was thrilled and honored to able to take part in a Country Garden photo shoot.  I know, pinch me!  Our own Ms. Susie-Q is now a contributor to the magazine!  Yippee! She will be doing four  articles, the first two coming out in their Spring 2011 issue, the third coming out in the summer and the fourth will be out in Fall 2011. Here's a sneak peek at what will be out in the first two.

It was a fun time, and the folks from Country Garden mag were amazing (along with Sue). I can't wait either 'til the mag comes out. Spring is too far away!
