First I'd like to say - thank you all for the great Anniversary wishes! They were so sweet :)
Second - thank god for iPhones. If I didn't have one, nothing in my life would be documented with pictures. (I just wish I had the new iPhone.. have you seen it's camera? it's insane).
I'd like to preface by saying in our marriage we live by VERY low key anniversaries, birthdays and holidays. If you treat them like any other day, you never will be disappointed. I think many women hype them up too much and then end up upset that their husband didn't do this or that. We never exchange gifts or cards, and do things very simple. And I always end up having a great day :)
And yesterday was no exception - we had an awesome anniversary! Even though we never exchange gifts, my husband did bring home flowers which was very sweet and very unexpected (when you don't expect anything a surprise is even better).
We didn't go out but cooked our favorite fall meal - Chicken and Dumplings. We had a lovely dinner.. it was dark and raining, so I lit some candles. It was very nice!
Nothing says romance like my big glasses and comfort food ;)
We'll use any excuse to have dessert. My favorite - red velvet cupcakes!!
And chocolate cake for the husband:
And that was our very low key and awesome anniversary!
Earlier in the day, I installed some throw pillows and a new rug in one of my client's home (same client with red bar stools). I really like how things are turning out!
This home leans towards the traditional side, so it's been fun throwing in some transitional patterns and silhouettes. We're almost done with the first room pictured, so I'll be sure to share the before and after.
