Day 367's anniversary festivities
Last night we kicked off the anniversary celebrations with a surprise trip to Leaf 'n' Petal to pick out hydrangeas for the yard. Sadly, they didn't have what we were looking for, but we still had fun poking around this really cute garden shop. While we were there, we scored some great little pots that were on clearance and a plant we'll call our "love fern," round 2 (I neglected the first one ...).
After a low-key burrito dinner (I'm low-maintenance, what can I say?), we headed home to exchange gifts and relax a bit. Following tradition, we bought each other paper. Wes bought me another egg print to go with the one we brought back from our Charleston honeymoon and I gave him a gift certificate for some golf lessons.
And, of course, we hung the egg prints as soon as we could!
Hanging pictures with an engineer is always an adventure. There was lots of measuring and remeasuring and making pencil marks on the wall. I just stood around sipping my wine (and taking pictures) -- I'm really more of an eyeball-it kind of girl, so my involvement in the process typically entails handing him the hammer if he can't reach it. But hey, they are very straight so no complaints here.
Don't they look so happy together! I'm so glad our blank walls are slowly starting to disappear. The celebration continues tonight with an Italian dinner and our year-old wedding cake -- stay tuned!
