We're Having A Baby

Well this is the last day of being pregnant. I figured I'd celebrate the occasion with a genuine old school blog post in the style of diary blogging from years gone by, like the aging internet dinosaur/embarassing mom that I now am. I'm not promoting anything or selling anything or linking to brands and no click throughs will send pennies my way for writing this. I just thought I'd check in on this most auspicious occasion...

Ginny and Willie Say I Do!

Meet the newlyweds, Ginny and Willie! This happy couple recently said "I do" on a hot summer day at the gorgeous Village Chapel in Pinehurst, NC.  Drawing inspiration from surrounding Pinehurst, Ginny and Willie worked with Inslee to create a whimsical botanical suite. The couple dreamt of summer whites with subtle hits of pale pinks and forest greens to match the surroundings of their venue.  Inslee started with the blooms, crafting an organic bouquet of dogwoods, blush berries, untoothed leaves, and of course, pinecones!   Inslee then digitally arranged each blossom and branch to create a unique botanical envelope liner! The bouquet sat perfectly on...
