We left with the best cucumbers and tomatoes and greens which were shared all weekend with friends and family and each other as we basked in the Georgia sunshine and bathed in the cool waters of the headwaters of the Soque.

With the big day two months away I've been surfing the sales for a few good dresses. And between an engagement party, two bridal showers, and all the wedding festivities, I'm starting to bring out every white dress my closet can offer (that's two, I think). Favorites on hand include old standby Lou & Grey and a Korean two-piece set from our local Buffalo Exchange, but after some window shopping a bit I've fallen in like with too many dresses. Last night I scooped up this lacy For Love & Lemons San …
