checking in...

I saw most of my family last week at my cousin's wedding, family members I hadn't seen since my little sister's wedding more than a year previous. I couldn't believe how many people mentioned that they missed my regular blog posts! Sometimes I forget that people actually read this blog on a regular basis- and frankly, I didn't know that the majority of my sisters were among those regular readers.

So I'm just popping in to say that there is lots of blogging to come! I've been swamped with work, travel weddings have been taking up a great deal of my time and I just haven't been home to sit down & write blog posts. But I've been taking pictures and I have plenty of content to share when my wedding season winds down... thank you for bearing with me!

intro to pretty

It's been an intense summer wedding season for me and I apologize that I haven't had the time to blog much lately. But I am finally getting some posts scheduled out, so I'll be sharing two beautiful weddings next week and more in the weeks to come! Stay tuned!

peony heaven

Peony season is here, and I'm in heaven. They are such gorgeous blooms, aren't they? I've got tons of them in my house right now... white, pink, and hot pink. They are seriously the prettiest things ever. If you live near a Trader Joe's, you're in luck-- the peony bunches at TJ's are high quality, long-lasting, and about a third of the cost of the peonies I get from my floral wholesalers. Go buy some now!!!

checking in and some clematis

Hello! Hello! Big changes happening here in the studio and I'm busy-busy-busy. I have lots of pretty weddings and events and other fun photos to share, but just haven't had the time to sit down and write the posts. My baby sister (aka 15 going on 25) Maggie will be interning for me this summer and I can hardly WAIT to have her help. She asked how much the internship pays and I said "room and board." Apparently she doesn't quite understand the concept of an internship yet. She will by the time it's over!  ;-) She arrives in just two weeks and I've got MAJOR PLANS for the weeks she'll be with me. Hopefully you'll get to see the fruits of our labor, I might even teach her how to do some blog posting... you never know. You'll get to hear about our time together, regardless!

I've been thinking of some regular features that I'd like to add here to the blog, but in the meantime, please excuse me, posts will be sporadic at best... but enjoy these images of gorgeous clematis!

working away

I've been really sick, which has been majorly annoying since I'm in the middle of a wedding build.... but I finally saw the doctor yesterday and started on antibiotics. This morning I'm already feeling about 50% better. Hopefully I'll be feeling 100% better by tomorrow, when my floral order arrives! Hope you are all having a beautiful week. xoxo

coming to your rss feed...

Apologies for my lack of posting lately- I've been swamped with work, and while I've got lots and lots of content to share, I just haven't had the time to get it up here. Over the next few days I'll be doing a lot of "blog housekeeping," so if you're reading this via Google Reader or another RSS feed reader, beware! Who knows what might come through... I'm moving posts from the old blog over here, hitting "publish" on a few blog posts that I wrote but forgot to publish, and fixing missing pictures and broken links. Hopefully we'll be back to working order and regularly scheduled posting on Monday.

In the meantime, excuse the "dust," and have a jolly weekend!
