If your week has been anything like my week, it’s been hot and humid, yet oh-so-pretty. And if you spent it on LBB blog, I know at least half of that is right – because we’ve had a VERY pretty week. For those of us who are craving just a little more pretty before heading out into our weekend, and especially for those of us who need a little escape from the heat, we have the sweetest, dancing in the rain engagement session from A Simple Photograph to send you on your way. So enjoy, have a wonderful weekend, and meet me back here Monday AM for another week of gorgeous weddings! xoxo
