Allison + Chad’s Wedding!

Ahhh! I love a good fall wedding! And this one was perfection! I was so honored that one of my dearest friends asked me to help out with the wedding stationery for her big day to the love of her life. Thank you to Old South Studios for these beautiful images at Providence Country Club.  And a little peek at our crew too!

xoxo,

Golden Girls

Let’s face it.  If you were a girl growing up in the 80s + 90s, the Golden Girls were a staple in your TV lineup.  DVR didn’t exist then . . . so you either made sure you were home for it or you had a VHS tape ready to you in the VCR.

If you can recite the entire theme song . . . Thank You For Being a Friend, then this blog post is just for you my friend!

Thank you to the lovely Cathy Durig Photography for the images.

xoxo … and, thank YOU for being a friend.
