Less Blogging - More Living

This Summer was filled with a little less blogging and a lot more living. I spent time working on weddings, styling hair, dressing brides and grooms, visiting family and the list goes on. Summer was absolutely amazing but I am looking forward to Fall and the beautiful colours that come with it, both in nature and in fashion. Scrolling back through the photos on my phone, here is a little pictorial summary of what I did this Summer.
