Miriam's Bridals

Ahh, finally... Miriam's bridals! I was saving these for after the wedding so Nick wouldn't see them but I guess it was inevitable that he would (they're TOO cute). Miriam and I drove down south to Eureka, Utah on Memorial weekend to get some rustic lovin' in a town of about 800 residents. There weren't many people to be seen but a silver Dodge truck kept driving past us then turning around at the end of the street to do it again. A little girl came out of an antique store holding an "open" sign pointed at us ;o) Another little girl came over and asked Miriam why she was dressed like a princess. She explained that she's getting married. Then the little girl said, "I am going to get married someday, but not until I'm older... like 16." hahaha We laughed inside until she was out of earshot. Then we drove further south to the sand dunes to duck and dodge out of the way of all the ATV's and 4-wheelers. After climing up the steep hill carrying my black chair, we had a hard time seeing anything because of the high afternoon sun but Miriam managed by closing her eyes until I said "three" and I just hoped for the best because I couldn't get a very good reading. I think we did a'ight and I LOVE that we had some clouds in the sky. Too many favorites, again, but I hope you like them...
