I apologize for the radio silence this past week!  I got back from Las Vegas on Monday and was thrust back into work and wedding planning (can't believe we're less than three weeks away!), and I literally had no down time or energy.

Our home was in need of some fresh flowers, so on Sunday we took a leisurely stroll in the gorgeous weather to one of my favorite flower shops, A New Leaf, to stock up on peonies for the week.  I picked up this darling floral shift dress from Banana Republic this weekend - Patrick and I went on a bit of a honeymoon shopping spree up and down Michigan Avenue.  Eek!  I was sure to be mindful of getting items that I could also wear after the honeymoon, and I know this dress be perfect for my spring and summer work wardrobe.

  1. I cannot rave enough about these guys. I found the San Francisco Florist online and ordered beautiful floral arrangements for an engagement party. They were lush, artful and beautiful- not a typical florist. I will absolutely be returning; they did an amazing job.

  2. Another thing to look out for is to find a florist with a wide selection of flowers. You should take a close look at their flowers to make sure that they are fresh and neatly arranged. If not, Flower delivery it means that they are not professional enough to care about their flowers and you cannot expect them to care for your flowers too.
