I know I promised to post the next look, Meet Me in Paris, from the I Do Redo Photoshoot, however I had to post about my trip to Tampa last weekend!
Before I was a florist, I was in marketing for an ice cream company for many years! Along the way, I worked for a guy named Lou in Tampa, FL, who was the most amazing boss I ever had. Despite a relocation to the NE (and then Atlanta!), I always stayed in touch with Lou and called him for tons of advice through the years! In fact, Lou is not the godfather of my daughter, and one of my boys calls him Uncle Loucle.
Lou, his adorable wife Tina, and his kids live on a huge plantation near Tampa with orange groves and a big white mansion with huge pillars. It is so southern! Well, on Saturday, we went to his oldest daughter's wedding, which was in a huge white tent on his property! It was so amazing!
My husband said it felt so Corleone (from The Godfather).
I felt like it was so Steel Magnolias.
Either way, it was just amazing!
The next day, we threw my little sister a baby shower!
She is due with her first baby (a girl!) at the end of April!
Here were the invites I had created from my favorite Etsy Designer:
The shower was held at this fabulous loft by Tampa Bay! Here are the pictures of the little soiree!

It was a whirlwind weekend! However, it was fun to see everyone!
I promise to post the Meet Me in Paris pictures tomorrow!
