Escape

“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one’s life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favorite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”

- Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Queen B

I got chills through the performance. By the end of it…I was in tears. She’s so talented. And so beautiful…

I’ve seen Kate Mara in various small parts before, but I didn’t REALLY take notice of her until House of Cards. Awesome actress.

And I’ve recently become obsessed with her blonde bob. Love love love love love love loooooooooove. She can probably pull off any hairstyle, but so far…this is one of my faves.

I absolutely have to rave about Marisol from Flourishing Flowers. The website does not do her marvelous work justice. I am eternally grateful to Abby for introducing me to this wonderfully talented floral vendor. I will definitely be using her for any upcoming special events and occasions!

So I sent Marisol an inspiration photo that I found on the BHLDN website…I asked her to base the bridal/bridesmaid bouquets off of this (shown below):

Altar inspirationI was working on a limited budget for the bouquets/ boutonnieres…so I wasn’t really expecting anything crazy. She said that it could definitely be done. I even asked if she could throw something together for the altar under $300 last minute (left: inspiration photo), and she was super enthusiastic about the idea, saying that it was not a problem. She made me feel totally at ease during the process…

Florals weren’t a huge thing to me. During the wedding planning /coordinating process, I kept pushing it off. …Continue Reading →
