Ready, Set, Honeymoon!

Getting ready for a trip, I’m reminded of all the planning that went in to our honeymoon even in the midst of wedding prep.  I remember packing and unpacking, realizing our suitcases were too heavy, trying on shoes for comfort, and buying special electrical converters. Somehow through the fog of dress fittings and table arrangements, we managed to spend some quality time packing for our adventure. And it was fun!

If possible, reclaim a little time to plan together for those unforeseen honeymoon moments: when someone catches a cold, or your elegant clothes are soaked by a sudden downpour. Traveling together as newlyweds is in many ways a microcosm of life – and it’s priceless to know that you’ve got a steadfast partner by your side, to hold your hand as you explore and discover new places both around the world and within yourselves.


Live well and love well.

The Not So Accidental Tourist

My Little Flower Shop LOVES tourists.  We rejoice when we see families consulting maps, large groups of people wearing matching visors, or most importantly, a “tourist” bride coming to have her destination wedding in Palm Springs.  We are also big advocates of being unashamed of tourist-y behavior while travelling.  See the sights! Take pictures! Consult your maps!

So this summer, why not be a tourist at home? I’ll bet you dollars to donuts there are attractions or historic sites nearby that you either have never seen, or not visited in 10+ years.  Goodness knows here in Southern California it would take a lifetime to do all the possible day trips.

Even if you can’t leave your city, town or neighborhood, investigate a little.  Find the tourist office for your city, and see what the “highlights” are.  You’ll be surprised what you’ve been missing all these years.  Architectural gems,  birthplaces of interesting people…there’s a lot out there.

What are you waiting for? Dust off your matching visors and head out on a homegrown adventure.

Live well, and love well.
