Love on Reality TV

Dear Paulie, I've been watching the CBS ‎show "Big Brother" since the first season. I noticed you, Paulie Calafiore, right away. It was something about your eyes and openness. You seemed to be flirty and talkative. I thought to myself "This is a handsome, smart, and humorous man. He's just my type."

The rest of the cast didn't thrill me until Zakiyah was introduced. She is the most beautiful and kind woman I have ever seen on "Big Brother". You kept smiling at Zakiyah. She flirted back and soon the two of you became a complicated love affair. I started to notice that you would bite your lip when thinking about or watching Zakiyah. Super sexy! Through the ups and downs, you kept my attention. I always wanted to hear what you had to say.

My goal was for Zakiyah, Paul, Victor, and you to make it to the final four. My hopes were dashed when you made a few major moves that resulted in an eviction from the Big Brother house.

You living in the jury house with Zakiyah made your love grow stronger. An Italian soccer coach ‎and a African American pre-school teacher found love on a reality TV show. I think you two are perfect for each other.

I'm proud to be a part of the #CalafioreNation. Thank you Paulie for an adventurous summer!

86th Annual Dahlia Show

My love for Peonies will never go away. At the end of the beautiful Peony season, the lovely Dahlia begins to grow. I was fortunate enough to attend the 86th Annual Dahlia Show at our local mall on September 10, 2016. 

Below are some of my favorite award winning Dahlias. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do!

Peace, love, and flowers,

#WeddingWednesday - Bouquets

This week's #WeddingWednesday focus is on flowers. If you can't already tell, I love flowers. Most of my Twitter account photos are floral in nature.

Bridal bouquets are just as important as the bride's wedding dress. The right bouquet will tie your wedding together quite nicely. If you're looking to save money, choose flowers that are local and in season.

One of my favorite wedding magazines " Magnolia Rouge" recently featured a stunning fall bridal bouquet. It was designed by Wild at Heart Flowers and photographed by Amanda at Peppermint Photography.
