I’m Thankful for Warm Weather

toAdorn grey top The weather has been beautiful here the past few days!  It's starting to become shorts and sandals weather here in Washington DC and I am so happy and thankful for it.  It was a really long winter so I'm sure I am not the only one praising the Lord for bringing us sunshine and warmth. Just the other week I received some happy mail, and I am so excited to share with you what I received and how I styled it!

2nd Anniversary Gift: Cotton

Second Anniversary Gift: Cotton Canvas Year two is cotton.  I can't even begin to tell you how long I had to rack my brain for ideas that weren't blankets or clothes.  This was a hard one for me, and it's only my second time giving a "themed" anniversary gift! A long time ago, Chris and I were talking about how we'd eventually decorate his office and we were trying to decide how to incorporate his many interests in one room.  He wanted Toy Story, Iron Man, space shuttles, Star Wars, and more and I had no idea how to incorporate Continue reading [...]

Soulmates Anniversary Card

Anniversary Card by Crafty Wife Every year for our anniversary I try to make Chris a card.  Last year I made three because I just couldn't decide which one I liked best.  This year though, he's only getting one. I found a Hobby Lobby about twenty minutes away from me and was so excited to go and look around.  I found some great stamps and scrapbook paper that I knew would be perfect for the card I wanted to make Chris.  Let's just say that I am a Hobby Lobby lover now. Goodbye Joann's and Michael's, it was nice knowing you. This Continue reading [...]

Thoughts on Marriage & a Photo Challenge

ISO Photo Challenge from The Photo Ladies This week, I thought it would be fun to combine my photography challenge with a marriage post.  I also wanted to try to shoot using the techniques I learned from my photography class in DC last week. To kick off our anniversary week (we celebrate big around here!), I talked Chris into taking me into DC to see the Cherry Blossoms.  It was horrible.  Not only was it in the 80's with that wonderful humidity, it was ridiculously crowded.  I forgot how bad the crowds can get during the Spring. Continue reading [...]

Memory Lamp

Memory lamp from Crafty Wife When Chris and I were on our honeymoon in the Caribbean, I decided I wanted to bring back some sand with us.  It was really important to me to make a memory jar from our time there and display it in our living room where everyone that came over could see it.  For a while it held a prime spot on the shelf above our fireplace, but in the months that followed it started to get moved to make way for other things.  Eventually it got put on a side table behind a wedding picture, and that's where it Continue reading [...]

It’s Wedding Week!

featured-image This time two years ago I was packing and getting last-minute things done before our wedding.  It's crazy to me to think that I've been married for almost two years.  While they seem to have flown by, I also feel like I've been married my entire life.  The past two years have been the most wonderful, stressful, loving, and frustrating two years of my life.  And I wouldn't change them for anything. Chris and I got married at Walt Disney World on April 20, 2012.  It was the best day of my life Continue reading [...]
