Going. Going...


Well, almost.
Check back Thursday. 
I'm actually leaving for England then.

However, this past week has been a full out party week.
And I have to admit- it's been awesome.

I feel like I had a second wedding
being surrounded by so many people that I love.

Like Friday night for example...
my sweet friends hosted the best party for me.

It was at Times Ten Cellars.

It was pretty.

It was intimate.

It became hilarious.

And then it turned physical.

I can't tell you how blessed I am
to have so many amazing people in my life.

At one point in the night, I looked around 
and was overwhelmed 
with the amazing people surrounding me.

I was sandwiched between some of the most beautiful, talented, kind hearted people possible.

{At a later point, I looked around, and couldn't believe how ridiculous it had become.}

and all my other sweet friends who made this night

Tyler & I will miss all of you terribly. 
Please come visit soon!

All photos were taken by Kevin Dotolo (except the grainy iPhone pic of Beth doing a back flip.)
 Kevin is awesome. Seriously. Check out his website,
 Here you will realize that all photographic needs should be routed through him directly. for the rest of your life.


  1. Lauren,
    I can tell what amazing friends you have -- and you obviously are a big piece of sunshine to draw all of that love your way. Wishing you safe travels...and as one who has followed my husband to 4 states in 10 years....enjoy the ride. Adventure awaits you at every turn. Something tells me you'll make the very most of it!
    xo Elizabeth

  16. Good friends are such a blessing! Good luck with your move to England (I was there for about 6 months before moving to Asia!) If you're in London, I can give you a few suggestions.

    I saw your post on our mutual blogger buddy Helena's blog and thought "Wow, this girl and I have similar style!" Glad to be following you now and hope you can drop by some time and follow too.
