Life Lately: Volume 76

Well hello!

It’s (finally) a sunny Friday and I’m gearing up for a *very* exciting weekend.

Julia Dags and I are heading down to Charleston on Sunday (stay tuned!) for two days and one night to shoot my upcoming  collection with Ophelia & Indigo and I’m SO excited to get out of town, even if it’s only for a quick trip.  We will be working for most of our time there but are hoping to sneak in a great meal or two.

Before that, we have a dinner party with our neighbors tonight and some kid bday parties tomorrow. I’ll be packing and prepping for the photos whenever I get a minute.

Have a great weekend!
