Well, I would say it was one of those moments where I looked up from my books in the library to see this handsome guy walk in with his coffee and a eight hours of studying ahead of him, but no . . . I basically picked him up in a bar on Roatán, Honduras, and wouldn’t let him out of my sight for the week he was on... Full Post >

Lily of the Valley

The wonderfully talented Krystal Kast of Krystal Kast Photography recently shared a photo of a Lily of the Valley bouquet from a Fearrington wedding last year and it had an unexpected effect on me. I spend most of my days working with people who are in the throes of love and planning on sharing that love with their family and friends. I’d have to be a robot not to get a little swoony every once in a while! I grew up the youngest of nine children in the suburbs of Wilmington, Delaware.  My... Full Post >
