one hundred and eighteen: congratulations for William and Catherine

I am a self-proclaimed anglophile. I spent a semester abroad in college and have been desperate to live in London ever since. There is something so magical about that city, especially today.

To say I was looking forward to the Royal Wedding would be a complete understatement! I dutifully set the DVR and rose early to catch a quick glimpse of the dress (gorgeous!) and the kiss. And now I have over twelve collective hours of royal footage to settle into. I think this calls for some scones and clotted cream from Tea and Sympathy. Ah, I love today!

Heartfelt congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Thank you for letting us all share in the joy of your union today. The ceremony was so lovely and you both dazzled  (especially you in that dress Kate!). Best wishes for a long, happy life together!




one hundred and twelve: congratulations for Belinda + Paul

Today my dear friend Paul is getting married in New Orleans. If there was ever an unofficial ambassador of a city, Paul would be the Big Easy’s designated mascot. In full disclosure, I wasn’t sure this day would ever come (Paul was quite the bachelor you see) but he got lucky in love at last. My heart swells for the happy couple and the sunny future that lies ahead. Congratulations!

Paul and Belinda,

Congratulations on your wedding! Oh how I wish I could be there to celebrate with you (and see Paul in a tux)! I am quite sure it will be a lovely southern affair, my favorite kind, and a day you will always cherish. May your union bring you great happiness and continued blessings. I have a hunch a whole lot of joy is headed your way.

Best wishes and lots of love,

Lauren  xxo

P.S. Belinda, I don’t know how you did it. But I know his mother is thanking her lucky stars. Paul is one lucky guy!
