table setting made easy

I swear I blinked and all of a sudden it was the end of November! With Thanksgiving right around the corner I thought I would share this handy dandy table setting chart with you. Who knew one person could use so much cutlery!

photo fun with aimee hill

My sweet friend Aimee is a fabulous photographer. So when she was looking for couples to do a few fun photo shoots, we volunteered ASAP. The shoot coincided with our paper anniversary so we had some fun with fortune cookies and the fuji instax mini. You can check out her website and more of her darling photos here. Thanks Aimee! We had a blast and the photos are gorgeous. You rock.

*I promise we will return to regularly scheduled (non-anniversary related) programming, effective immediately after this post. Thanks for humoring me guys.

Kiwi surprised me with a hot air balloon ride for our anniversary! It was so peaceful and still floating up in the air.... I didn't want to come down. Up, up and away!

this marriage

May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage.


Happy one year anniversary my love.

all hallows eve

{pumpkin brownies}

{caramel apples}

{a pair of pumpkins}

{memoirs of a geisha}

{rapper's delight}

A few photos from our Halloween party this past weekend... I made caramel apples and dressed up as a geisha. Kiwi went old school with an homage to Run DMC and we both ate our weight in candy corn. Halloween, I heart you.

*Did you dress up for Halloween this year?
