Wedding fever...

I've got wedding fever. Not my own! I'm surrounded by amazing friends who have either recently gotten married, will soon be married or just recently experienced the thrill of getting engaged. I love weddings, and I love that I get to share these exciting moments with the people I love. In all honesty, one wedding is just not enough. One marriage? Absolutely. But when it comes to the options of the day, the season, the location, the theme and the many details that come together to build it, the dress…the dress! One is not enough. Thankfully, we often get to experience these things through our friends. We get to enjoy spring weddings, summer weddings, fall weddings and winter weddings. We can take in the beauty of many styles – vintage, modern, urban, big city, small city, farm and coastal.   We get to merge one group of friends and family with another, and if we’re lucky, build new friends from these moments.
And in this spirit of nuptials, I wanted to share the most fairytale-like wedding videos I’ve ever stumbled upon:

Boston Vacation

Ev and I went to visit my bff and her other half in Boston a week ago. We had a great weekend filled with lobster, chowder, boating, beaching and whale watching. 

I was smitten with New England's beautiful houses, sunsets, shells and nautical delights.  Below are some of the goodies we saw:

And my personal favorite - 

 I wanted to bring this little fisherman home with me!

Thank you Steph and Greig for a delightful long weekend!

One last summer soiree

We celebrated Evan's 28th with good friends, yummy food, lawn games and plenty of cocktails.

Fabric love.

Kirsten at 6th Street Design School is doing a giveaway with L&S Fabrics - one of my favorite places to go for affordable fabric (especially love the stripes). Their selection of fabrics is the ultimate eye candy. Also visit L&S's sister site StaceAge for more yummy, contemporary fabrics.
