We celebrated our first Easter being married! I wore my special Easter dress and this handsome guy on my arm. We ate so much Easter candy and cookies and enjoyed the sunshine together. Hope you had a lovely spring weekend too!
According to the internet, we were probably supposed to get some adorable professional photos taken for Christmas for our newlywed year. And then we were supposed to send out a sweet holiday card to everyone that would arrive the week before. But instead, we spent the most of December attending parties, and then skipped town. No regrets.
But I do love a good Christmas card. And I know that I can only use wedding photos for so long before other people get tired of them. Solution: happy new year cards
I made them in similar style to our wedding invites, and used one of my favorite photos from our wedding. I love them, so I hope our family is happy to see them in the mail soon! I will have a slightly similar pattern of card available in my etsy shop soon!
If I had a million of these, it still wouldn’t be enough. You grow up seeing these on the walls of houses, and now that we have one, I feel like we can finally officially be married forever. Embroidery don’t lie.
I thought it might be fun to commemorate our first home in tiny replica form. It is the house we bought together, and our first home where we share the same last name, so I imagine it will always have a very special place in our hearts.
Its not quite done, but I should finish it up this week! Its gonna be super awesome.
I made just a couple key purchases for our honeymoon at the beach, and boy am I glad I did. I felt like a glowing newlywed who was spending the day lounging at the beach in style, and sometimes it just makes you feel even better to look the part. Before our trip, I really wanted a big floppy beach hat, and seriously, money well spent. It was one of the top 5 most awesome I have ever felt in my life. Here are some of my beach essentials:
And….I have been plopped back into real life. Back to the normal work day routine. But as of this moment, we have been married for 9 days, and have spent 5 of those days on the beach. So we are still rocking a pretty awesome beach to real life ratio for our days as husband and wife. Let’s try to keep that up, shall we?
