I loved everything about this weekend. My wonderful friend Ella and I have been planning a staycation together for quite awhile. It definitely lived up to all our excited planning. On Friday afternoon I headed out to the mysterious and alluring land beyond the Potomac (aka Virginia) and met up with Ella. What followed were endless hours of girl talk… yummy gelato… window shopping… chick flicks… trashy magazines… totally cute and snuggly pups… pool time (and WATER SLIDES… first time since I was a kid)… cooking lessons… homemade margaritas…fresh flowers… the farmer’s market…hat shopping (I mean everyone needs a visor for their cruise…right?)…exploring in the woods.
Speaking of the woods, this weekend we also shot our next #YouSparkle shoot with our beautiful friends Lauren and Ashlynn. It was amazing. Ashlynn was our fierce warrior princess in the midst of an enchanted forest. (Doesn’t everyone do this kind of stuff with their friends on the weekend?). The pictures included above are just a little sneak peek. I can’t wait to show you what Lauren captured. I saw a few shots on her camera and let me tell you… THEY ARE FREAKIN AMAZING!
