This is my all time favourite home - it can be found in Stars Hollow Connecticut and is the home of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
(Yes, I know they're not real but humour me)
I love everything about this house - the verandah, the wisteria, the white trim, the trees and of course the lives that went on behind those double front doors.
Recently I came across a photo of Lorelai's home as it is now - a few years after the final season of Gilmore Girls - and I can't say I am happy about the changes. I'm happy the house still stands but I think they have stripped it of much of it's charm. I wonder what TV family will live here next?
The day has finally arrived - I have just got home after an exhausting day getting everything ready for tomorrow's opening (actually today's!) at the new Kensington store. I can't believe that we actually did it. For some reason the first shop didn't seem so hard, maybe because it was 7 years ago and like childbirth the memories have dimmed.
We have just ripped all the paper off the windows to reveal all! How fun.
If you're in the area pop in and visit otherwise I'll fill you in tomorrow on our first big day.
I love looking at wedding photographers blogs because it is a time when people really put in a huge effort for an event and each wedding gives a snap shot of the style of the couple.

Their weddings are beautiful but I particularly love their family portraits - no stilted families in bad outfits in front of fake backdrops - here's an example of a shoot I love
