my little sister maddie is about to marry her childhood best friend and high school sweetheart. i can't wait to be standing next to her as she becomes Mrs. Hamilton. My older sister, her husband, and my two adorable nieces sophia (don't you love the way she's looking up at maddie in the airport?) and marina flew in from italy friday.
i fly in on Wens. and i can't wait to hug them all and enjoy every minute with my family (not to mention all the eating i'll be doing! oh how i've missed my momma's food!). Sophia keeps asking, "auntie mickey, where are you?"
since i'll be gone for nearly two blessed weeks, i've graciously asked my favorite ladies to blog-sit. not only will you get to meet some of my favorite reads, you'll see why i adore them so.
i decided to give them instructions from the last series of guest posts on my dolce vita: "With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a quote, an item of clothing, and a place."
starting wens. you'll get to see each blogger's 'heart.' to give you a preview...
here's my heart
"Understand, I'll slip quietly
Away from the noisy crowd
When I see the pale
Stars rising, blooming over the oaks
I'll pursue solitary pathways Through the pale twilit meadows,
With only this one dream:
You come too."
-Rainer Maria Rilke
(our wedding song)
Item of Clothing:
every girl needs a lace dress for impromptu date nights.

*starting wens. the 20th, stay tuned each day to see beautiful hearts (i love how different each one is)and say hello to each fabulous girl visiting?
