Lovebirds in the Afternoon













It's old news already that things have been just a tad quiet over here as this past weekend was fully consumed with planning my lovely little sis's bridal shower.  Above are some snapshots of the perfectly delightful afternoon, which was laced with Lemon lavender honey cupcakes ....oh and Bailey's toffee mocha ones too along with lots of love and happiness and yes, very delicious food.   The venue was an old Victorian mansion, which was magical in itself but add a room full of family and friends and an altogether beautiful couple and the day was nothing but enchanted.  I couldn't be more proud of my sister bear and so very excited for her and her fiance as they embark on this new journey hand in hand.

I have another busy few days ahead of me, so I must run now, however I'll be back soon with my lemon lavender honey cupcake recipe in hand :)  Have a gorgeous week darlings!

Love Bunches,

  33. What a great place to go to. How amazing. I love seeing photos of family members too!!! I hope she has a beautiful wedding too. Seems like a lot of guys go to the Bridal showers lately! Did your husband go to yours? Mine didn't. No men did. . .but I've been to three where they did! Poor dudes.
