For six rare days we enjoyed sun and warmth and I allowed it to sink deep into my bones. Spring's always been my favorite season and it's finally arrived in London.
I feel every year Spring brings more to celebrate and enjoy. This time last year I'd nailed down all the big details for my May wedding and was beginning to enjoy the calm of the little details, the ones you don't really need but that make the day more special (if that's possible) or go more smoothly. I was gathering childhood photos, fixing mason jars to hang on ceremony chairs and finding comfy cream lace flats to wear. The things that are especially fun to plan and still allow you time to relax and reflect.
Now I'm beginning to prep for my dear friend Kaitlyn's wedding. She sent me a package last week with a card asking me to be her bridesmaid, paint swatches to help me feel her wedding, a tin of lip salve and a handheld mirror. It was the sweetest thing! And it definitely helped me envision her dream wedding. I know it's going to be so soft, romantic and intentional. Just like she and Harbor are.
All week I've been popping into shops and browsing online for the perfect dress. I have plenty of time but I'm just so excited. I ordered this one from ASOS and I'm really hoping it works.
Kaitlyn and us bridesmaids have been sharing inspiration through Pinterest, these are some of my favorite photos.

Aren't weddings sweet? I love everything about them. I had my moments of wanting to scrap it all and elope when planning my own; but truth is, having your most dear family and friends present to witness and hold you accountable to your commitment and then to celebrate with, is worth it all. I'm so excited to be that for my dear friend.
