Dear Husband...


 I am thankful everyday for the amazing man I married. The man who makes me giggle all the time, who gives me big bear hugs when I need them the most, who always does the dishes, who tells me all will be well, who takes me on amazing date nights, who is endlessly supportive & sweet, who shares ice cream with me in our PJs, who takes care of me when I don't feel well & who rolls over to cuddle me in the middle of the night and plays footsie with me under the covers...

Dear Husband...

I thank God every single day for you.

Dopplegangers (1st Anniversary Gift)

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Its been a while since we celebrated our first wedding anniversary (it was back in September...) but I wanted to share the gift I gave the Hubs. The traditional gift for the 1st Anniversary is paper, so I was psyched to find these custom paper sculptures. (Actually, my sis-in-law found them on etsy and got one made for her hubs, and I totally stole her idea.) The lovely women at Indigo Twin do such beautiful work and can truly do anything you ask- I sent her pics of us, our dog and kitty and specifics like heights, hair and eye color, what we should be wearing and holding-a golf club for G and an Anthropologie shopping bag for me. Geoff loved them! Its such a fun little keepsake to celebrate our first yeart of wedded bliss. Head over to Indigo Twin on etsy and check them out. They also have a ton of cute Christmas ornaments and unique gifts.

Happy Monday all!

Dear Husband...

Dear Husband...

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

1. I love that you make even folding laundry funny.

2. I love that you share my sick obsession with brunch.

3. I love the way you baby talk to the Boo when you give him
    a bath so he won't be sad...

4. Sometimes it doesn't work.

5. I love our family walks, talking about our future and how we
    would redo our house and our favorite things...

There are too many things I love to count.

You really are the best.

Dear Husband...


Dear Husband...

This week you were sick. And snurfy. And your nose was really red and crusty.
And you snored - a lot. (This isn't sounding much like a love letter yet...but wait for it...)
And yet still I wanted to kiss your face and cuddle you. And get you medicine and scratch your back. And let you sleep in while I fed the dog. Cause, even when you
are sick, you are the cutest thing ever.

P.S. Please don't kill me for posting these pics I took of you while you were knocked out on Nyquil. I was bored and didn't have anyone to play with..

Dear Husband...

I have this song on repeat at work today-it makes me think of you and when we used to drive back and forth all the time. So glad I get to come home to you everyday.

Brandi Carlile- Dying Day

"How these days grow long
But I'm on my way back home
It's been hard to be away 
How I miss you and I just want to kiss you
And I'm gonna love you till my dying day"


Can't wait to be garage sale crazies this weekend.
