I just can't leave this one alone.
I've had these lovelies on my drying rack for a while now...still a bit of wet "paint" before their final dusting of color.

original topper debuting on Saturday
Let me tell you, though, it's not just about the flowers. It's about the bride.
I met this amazing woman when I moved home from a few years of east-coast insanity. Talk about beautiful, inside and out. You become fast friends with the people who are walking with you through times of extreme change, and this lady was part of the whirlwind of life that surrounded me when I got married.
Partnered with her equally awesome best friend (who I hope will get her own Bake Lore post one of these days), she threw me a beautiful wedding shower and helped make my wedding invitations. She was a charter member of a briefly convened group we called "The Hot Mammas Club," and she helped me, on more than one occasion, survive my incredible propensity to get lost WHEREVER I GO.
She's gonna marry a hunk of Latino preacher this weekend, and I couldn't be happier for her. She's made me wait a long time to enjoy blessing her a little bit in the same way she has blessed me.
Here's to you and all the Hot Mammas out there - love and miss you all!
