I may come off as a little braggy – and I really super don’t wish to mean to – but I’m heading to Epcot today! One of the perks of living here in Florida is (frequently) pretending you’re on vacation for a day by hanging out with real tourists and just blending right in. The only downside…you know the attitude that says “I’m on vacay. I can totally wear this ridiculous look because I will never see these people again.” Yeah. Not so much when you’re liable to run into people you actually know.
As I soak up the gorgeousness that is the International Flower and Garden Festival, I leave you with some delightful reading material. But first, let’s check out The News:

The perfect wedding gift not to be found on a registry? We love these he/she wedding canvases by GeeZees, highlighted on Emmaline Bride.
Karina and David’s lovely Melbourne wedding had so many pretty touches. I love the vintage style, the bride’s short, sassy haircut, and the adorably pregnant bridesmaids in their stunning dresses. But not to be missed are the macaron towers – fashioned by the bride and groom! – and the beautiful white wedding cake. I feature the photo above. From Polka Dot Bride.
Mmmm…lavender lemonade! Now, doesn’t that sound divine for spring get togethers and summer soirees? Via Once Wed.
