Between building the new site content, prepping for relaunch shoots and my fave of all, drafting up an incredible new client experience […]

A Day at the Hamilton Dahlia Farm

When Andrew first proposed the idea of moving to Michigan I felt like the world was going to cave in on me.  After only three months in Chicago, I was annoyed at having to pack up again. Michigan wasn’t where I imagined our home being and Michigan certainly didn’t offer me any conveniences or perks […]

FAQs: Differences Between Planners, Coordinators and Stylists

I remember sitting on a train from Toronto to Burlington months before I launched my business, thinking of what exactly I would specialize in as a wedding planner.

Happy Monday, bloggies! In celebration of Lemon and Lavender’s incredible relaunch tonight I thought I’d write a bit about styling paper products for photos, whether it be a wedding planner doing so for a client or a designer updating their portfolio.

FAQs: Finding ‘You’ Time

Guys, this past weekend I watched a movie. And by watch a movie I mean I left my phone upstairs, my laptop in my office and I even prepared some fattening snacks so I could sit down and enjoy a flick. I’m not even sure I remember the last time this happened. Nor do I […]

The HGE Drink Diaries: Velvet Smooch Shake

I’m a junk food eater. And I never thought I’d catch myself saying that but I have a weakness for food that’s so good it’s bad. If it’s chocolately, sugary, sweet or some form of pasta or carbs, then you can bet I’ll enjoy devouring it. So while I’m over here finding the motivation to […]

Andrew, today I checked over on The Knot and it’s been 731 days since we said I Do. Two full years of things we never imagined. Year two in my opinion, is much harder than the first. Because sometimes the excitement from year one goes away, and unless you can work together as a team […]

It’s not just the gorgeous art work, timeless design and sweet messages that have me hooked for life, but I’ve always been drawn to the Papyrus brand because of the little paper insert that comes with every card. Perhaps you other Papyrus card […]
