Wedding Invites… Have at least one or two lying on your desk or stuck on your fridge? June through Labor Day weekends are awash with scanning gift registries, making travel plans, coordinating hotel stays, all for the sole purpose of being present for the lucky couple’s vows: Because that’s the whole point, right? To stand together, in churches or synagogues, on hilltops or beaches, to join in the public acknowledgement of the marriage, and inherent in that standing together, to support and celebrate this fragile union.

Spring comes with a welcome abundance for those of us who endured a long white winter… I find myself this May craving time outdoors, feeling the gentle spring sunshine, and taking in the copious colors and fragrances. On Saturday I drank my morning tea on the back deck taking in all the majesty and all that new green took my breath away! The field beyond my house danced with butterflies and happy dandelions; as I watched them fluttering about I thought about how in nature there is nothing wasted, nothing for naught, all is reused and renewed. This concept inspired my next fashion shoot while the orange on the butterfly wings, the salmon tulips in my garden, and the coral of the buds, all became part of my color palette.

You flip the calendar into May and realize the month will sail by in the breeze of graduations, Mother’s Day and wedding showers. But the pressure is on as you spot Memorial Day lurking down on that last week. You know what I’m talking about, right? Memorial Day means Bathing Suit Season!!! So the big question is: how best to prepare? Certainly, you can pull out your old Weight Watcher’s points guide or your South Beach three week plan, and you can return to your gym regime or walk with the office crew at lunch, but I want to remind you of another consideration in your bathing suit preparation: caring for your skin!
