today i fell in love

...with LOVE! i suppose i've always been a romantic. i have no words. the photos say it all..

 (this is my favorite picture of kate..she is absolutely stunning)

kate did her own make-up for her wedding.  this makes me love her even more. her simple, gold wedding band was passed down from the queen. she is the definition of elegance & class. 
i just love her!! i can't wait to watch their fairytale continue on...

winter to summer

holy heat wave! it seems as though philadelphia has gone from winter straight to summer.  yesterday & today were both high 70's, dare i say low 80's...what happened to breezy spring days? i want to wear my light weight cardigans with no jacket!

anyway, i'm over it - i love the sun's warmth:)

know what else i love??
these little beauties:

my brother brought me these gorgeous sunflowers as an easter present - he is the best!
hope your week is off to a great start=)

spring break!

thanks to the copious amounts of snow that mother nature so lovingly blessed us with this past winter, my spring break is cut short a few days & is now sittin' pretty at a 4-day weekend that cannot come quick enough! so, although i am not jet-setting anywhere fabulous to lounge on a white sand beach with a drink in my hand for the next week or so, i thought, hey a girl can dream, right?

so, if i had my way, i'd be here:

with these:

and this:
(the bathing suit, not the girl!)
i'll take this in my right hand:

and this in my left hand:

oh, and he can come too;)

i have a new obsession...

...with ranunculus'.

 how beautiful are the green & white?

 yellow - white - green - obsessed with this color combo

 i think these pale pink with darker centers are my favorite.

 maybe the white is my favorite..?
 but then i see these deep purple & maybe thoooose are my favorite..

one day, when i get married, i would love for these to be a part of the centerpieces & bouquets.
love them!
