more to celebrate

Christina and Rob’s wedding at Camp and Sons, Willits, CA, Canon Digital Rebel

Sheesh… y’all know how to make a girl cry… Thank you for all of your messages! The love and joy pouring in was the best kind of overwhelming. I look forward to sharing this story one day with the little human I am growing.

But there is even more to celebrate! My friends Christina (who you might recognize as a superhero model) and Rob got married this weekend in the most beautiful placed called Camp & Sons in Willits, CA. We all camped out at night and lounged all day in the gardens eating strawberries and swimming in the pond. Don’t you love Rob’s coat?


Suzanna and Rafael also got married (in very glamorous fashion) at Cafe Du Nord… they looked like movie stars!

And my friends Elizabeth and John just had their first wee one this week. Welcome to the world little Sadie Denning Allspaw!

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Does God not answer prayers or what? Does he not bring you what you need at just the right time? I am so happy for you and your husband as you start this journey into parenthood. May you be blessed with a wonderful pregnancy.

    I love the photos of Suzanna and Rafael!! I also especially love the fact that in some of the photos, everybody looks like they’re exactly from that era, but then you see the groom’s little piercing beneath his lip. Love that! 🙂

    man you have some attractive friends.

  13. Jason

    ‘Not much going on in you guys’ lives right now. Purty much just coasting with the status quo, I see.
    Love me camp & sons. ‘Spent many a weekend there with a lot of dancing naked people.

  14. beastmomma

    I agree that you do have some attractive friends and what a great season of celebration it is for you. Enjoy!

  15. beeb

    That baby picture made me smile.

  16. amanda

    Wow. What beautiful, and very different, weddings. 🙂 The link to the Elizabeth and John pic lead me to the story of the paintchips again. And your lists. I’m a listmaker, too, but it hasn’t led to the love of my life yet. I sometimes wonder if I’m limiting myself. Maybe I need help announcing my list to the universe and manifesting my desires! lol.

  17. Keely

    Wow. 2 of my favorite things: Wedding & baby pics! 🙂 I love seeing all that love and joy come through. Oh, and that adorable munchkin….she shares her first name with my lovely sister in law (who you made a Superhero necklace for last year) and her middle name is my mother’s maiden name. Wonderful choices, if I do say so. I’ve never met a Denning who wasn’t fabulous!

  22. Andrea

    Not only is it fabulous that so many people have been cheering you on in your quest to become pregnant, but imagine how incredible your little one will feel some day when you tell him or her your wonderful saga of how many, many people from around the world sent good thoughts into the universe, wishing for him or her to come along.
    That little person will feel like the whole world is supporting him! Amazing!

  23. Sonia

    Beautiful! Congratulations!

  24. Savannah
