Images from a weekend with friends and family. One of my oldest and closest friend got married and we all spent the weekend pampering ourselves, having good food and wine with old friends and enjoying a little girl time with hair and make up for her big day.

As August draws to a close already, Houstonians have given up their complaints of being hot and have just complied with this inevitable sweaty lifestyle.
