peaches and cream

The fine ladies over at The Bride's Guide (Martha Stewart's wedding blog) asked me to to be a part of their Peaches and Cream Series that ran last week!  Head on over to the post to see more from this collection of all things peachy.

Also, if you're interested in purchasing this one-of-a-kind piece (the flowers are vintage millinery pieces and the veil is made of tulle and netting), you can visit my Etsy.  In The Bride's Guide post, the flower looks peachier than it actually is.  The images above show the flower's true color--a rich blush.

Many thanks to my sister, Jordan, for modeling and to my huz-bone, Tec, for taking the pics.

summer swept

I'm sorry for the lack of life on this ol' blog.  Tec and I have been going non-stop since spring and it has finally caught up to me.  I've been trying to be very intentional about reconnecting with relationships, work and myself these past few months and my postings here haven't seem to fit very neatly in that package.

But all of my absence has been for really, really good reasons.  Exhibit A: our recent trip to Tuscany.  The images above were shot by my every dashing, ever talented husband last month.  Head on over to his blog to see a lot more from the trip.

I'll see y'all again real soon.  xo
