✨“It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life”✨
Wow super busy but eventful weekend that took all day Monday to recover from it all lol 😅 but I gotta day the highlight was definitely this incredible #lordoftherings themed #weddingreception 🎊 for one of my best friends since high school my “twinny” @alyssahope.cosplay & her new handsome Irish husband Tuireann 🍀 They technically have been married for 2 years 👰🏻🤵🏼 but I think this celebration was well worth the wait because they made it so magical & perfect ✨ From the beautiful nature setting to the amazing amount of handmade details, all inspired by the #middleearth world of #tolkien , I say this reception was one for the books! 📖 & of course it wouldn’t have been nearly as fun & special without this super hot #hobbit & #mancrusheveryday my love @sonnensmack ❤️ to go with my #aragorn persona (dress made by her highness @lordoftheseams 👑) In fact, everyone that was there (including the family & grandparents) were all dressed straight from the #shire & it was so awesome to see everyone getting into it ☺️ (we even had a Gandalf! 😱🧙🏻♂️😱)
Oh & did I mention fireworks?? 🎇🎆🎇 Epic!!!
So congrats to Mr. & Mrs. O’Neill on finding “the one” ✨💍✨
Thank you all so much for the love on my last post! If anyone ever wants to talk the Professor, just shoot me a DM. It’s one of my favourite things 😉
Above, a mini-representation of my shelves: YA, Tolkien, fantasy other than Tolkien, aaannnddd Shakespeare’s Star Wars. The last one is my guilty pleasure, I was a drama kid and was stuck in Shakespeare for weeks at a time in university.
On another note, I’m starting to realize, I may have picked the wrong time of year to start doing this. I was lucky enough on Saturday to go out and shoot some pics in my backyard, including the one above. I was able to do this because a) the light was good (for once) and b) the snow was gone and the ground was dry enough to stick books on.
Buuut... it’s not gonna get any better from here. We’ve had about 5 snowfalls this fall so far, and the light hasn’t been much better. And I’m still trying to find a good spot in my house for shooting. 🤦♀️ So, bear with me for now while I figure this whole thing out. I’m starting to realize I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to this.
#QOTD : What are your Halloween plans this year?
AOTD: I will most likely be working, then coming home and reading by a candle.
Day 11 of 30 days of gratitude ~ "What holiday are you grateful for?" I could say something predictable like Christmas (which is still great of course) but for this I'll choose national Tolkien reading day, an actual holiday dedicated to reading the works of my favorite author, JRR Tolkien. 📚💜 #Gratitude#Tolkien#Lotr#Books#Reading
