flower friday

When I create arrangements I like to pick one flower to be the center piece of the boquet.  In this case, snow on the mountain was what caught my eye first. I added delicate whisps of Veronica and Sweet Peas with two giant Dahlia blooms for delightfully summer boquet. 
Happy Flower Friday!

travel uniform

 Sam and I have been traveling a lot this summer. Our constant adventuring has lead to the emergence of my new travel unifrom. It's basically these pants with a slouchy tee and my white Birks. 
Nice and easy.

a toast to love

 The alluring call of summer is hard to resist. It beckons you to slow down and to share beautiful moments with the ones you love. Life can get crazy and it's important to Sam and I to carve out moments when we are simply enjoying being in love.
Once a week we pack up a picnic and head down to a secluded, private beach for a relaxing day date. We spend our whole time lounging, laughing, and feeling like we've only just met. We sprawl out on our sea of blankets and pillows while enjoying a spread of our favorite little bites paired with beautiful, fresh wines. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay has been regularly making an appearance at our picnic. It's bright, fresh, and pairs easily with our favorite food. It's also the perfect way to toast our summer love, and that is what summer's all about. Doing the things you love with the people you love.

kaftan season

I've always been a sucker for kaftans. There's something really glamorous about their simplicity.
This set is from one of our last days in Miami.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
