These Will Change Your Life (well, atleast your eating habbits)

December 22nd, 2010

Last year one of our clients made us delicious cakeballs. I remember them sitting in the studio for a couple hours, not knowing how incredibly delicious   a cakeball really tasted.  Infact, you don’t know until you experience it for yourself. Yes, it is an experience. After we tried one, we each understood that we had […]

Last year one of our clients made us delicious cakeballs. I remember them sitting in the studio for a couple hours, not knowing how incredibly delicious   a cakeball really tasted.  Infact, you don’t know until you experience it for yourself. Yes, it is an experience. After we tried one, we each understood that we had missed out on these for way too long and we had to make up for lost time. This Christmas season rolled around and right after Thanksgiving Jennifer made the excited statement that she couldn’t wait any longer for Jill’s cakeballs.  She was going to place an order to ensure a timely turnaround.  This order was eaten between all the employees at JEM within a few days.  Please mind you that we only have one other worker here. 40 cakeballs between three girls means these are THE MOST MELT- IN -YOUR -MOUTH VELVET CAKE BALLS EVER!!!  We had to place two more orders and we are so overjoyed to have chased clients/friends out of our studio saying, ‘YOU MUST  TRY ONE OF THESE, THEY WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!!’

So, here is to our sweet friend Jill who just started a facebook fanpage called, Let’s Have a Ball.  If you happen to see this post and this cakeball changed your life…or atleast a little…show some love and let Jill know how much you enjoyed her mad cakeball skills.  Merry Christmas!

I met Aubry over the summer when she was our Silly Monkey Boutique model and during this initial photo shoot I fell for this little girl.  She has personality and spunk and innocence all wrapped up in the numeric age of 4.  I like that she thoroughly loves to get her picture taken.  A few weeks ago they came into the studio and I got the meet the youngest, Paige and so it happened that this one steals hearts too. She has this quiet demeanor about her that makes you a little quieter too…and innocent looks. I love these first two of Aubry, as I think you can get a clear idea of her personality, and I hope you  can admire the jewelry as much as she does.   I also love the last picture with Jen showing some love to her daughter that decided she had enough with family pictures 🙂

Before reading this you might need a beverage or a snack because I have a book I am about to write concerning this wedding day and these wonderful people.

I met Erin last Thanksgiving when she was in town from Virginia and then again a few months later when she was back in town.  I distinctly remember her calling Michael from the studio to ask him a question and something from that quick conversation told me that, ‘wow, they have something special going on here’ Maybe the tone in her voice or the way she called him love was a clue…but I knew before even seeing them together in the same room that this couple had something special. So it was no surprise that when I actually saw the two of them together that it was clear that Erin and Michael  are really perfect for one another.

Walking down the aisle with her father beside her and trying to keep the tears from pouring out, I loved seeing the look of comfort on her face once she reached Michael. This ceremony was filled with love, emotion and at the end: bagpipes.  A reception immediately followed St. Patrick’s Church at The Hilton Garden Inn but that didn’t stop  us from getting a few pictures outside.  Now. Let me pause here. Erin and Michael laughed, hugged, smooched, and sang to eachother during  all photos.  If Michael opens his mouth to sing, Erin automatically laughs hysterically.  Michael, is that a compliment??

The rest of the night was filled with 3 cakes, 2 of which honored both sets of parents and their love and support to them both…great toasts, speeches and the best band ever- 56 Daze-that kept the dance floor alive all night long! Pause.  Erin didn’t know the song that was picked out for her and her father to dance to until it started playing and if I was better with reciting music I would insert the name of the song here__________, but unfortunately I was not blessed with a keen musical memory. But, this song made for an awesome dance between daughter and father, complete with both singing, laughing and twirling.

The last thing I am going to say is that this couple makes everyone feel welcome, so much so that I felt like a guest myself.  Erin and Michael I am truly happy for you both.
