It Feels Like A Monday.

Monday's are always difficult for me after an especially lovely weekend.

Ryan and I celebrated our 12th anniversary on Saturday. Because we weren't able to get out of town like we usually do it was filled with typical Saturday things. Basketball game, Costco, Target. A trip to the gym and a movie at home. It was simple. And cozy.

We spent our 12th anniversary together, doing the everyday tasks we day dreamed of when we were engaged. A house full of children who needed scrapes to be kissed. Stocking the refrigerator with food to fill hungry bellies. We are living those fantasies now. There are days we wonder "what was life like before this?" and I'm sure there will be days ahead where we'll fondly look back and say "remember life when it was like that". I love this life we've created together. The day dreams we've made a reality.

p.s. My ring? An anniversary gift + a replacement for the wedding band that went missing this summer. It's so pretty and delicate, just perfect. You can find it here. Perhaps you would like cupid to bring you one?
I can vouch for it's sweetness.


  1. Congratulations on twelve years! Sounds like a marvelous day. Your wedding band is so simple and lovely.

  2. So so pretty...that hammered gold ring. Happy 12th.

    Our 12th was a special one. Usually we stay home and do the routine, but for our 12th we rented a VW Restored Bus and camped for 5 days on the beach in southern california...just the two of us. I didn't think I would like it, but I loved it.

    We kept a little leather brown journal in the glove box and wrote our feelings of each day. So special.

    I love how you made your special by knowing you were living your fairytale!
