Bridal Shower

This weekend was my Bridal Shower.  It was such a great day and I was completely showered with love and well wishes! (And tons and tons of Crate and Barrel, yay!)

This cutting board is in honor of Kyle and his greatest passion (besides me) in life.  I used to always joke that I was just his girlfriend but surfing was his wife.  I guess that is all going to have to change now.  Sorry surfing but you are moving to 2nd place now.  Actually, sorry I'm not sorry :)

Family- Including my new family :)

Thank you so much to my aunt Evelyn and my mom's bestie Denise for hosting this gorgeous day!!
And thanks to everyone else who helped out and who came to help me celebrate my upcoming nuptials :)

Goodbye to Our First Home

We are moving, yay!! We found a bigger place that will be much more comfortable for us but it is so bittersweet to leave our first place.  This is the little house that started it all.  It's where we adopted our baby Cody and where we got engaged.  I will miss our annual 4th of July party and Cody will miss his best bud Tucker, the chocolate lab next door.  We have shared so many memories here and will always look back fondly at our tiny one bedroom house on 11th Street.

But, it's time to move on, time to spread our wings.  Hopefully soon we will be expanding our family and we need the extra space.  People have been sending wedding gifts and I'm starting to feel like a hoarder in this tiny house :)  I'm also looking forward to having an actual table to eat at, furniture for people to sit on and the possibility of actually entertaining guests.  It's exciting to start fresh on a blank canvas too and hopefully I can put some of my Pinterest ideas to good use.

One thing I really love about this house are the Cherry Blossom trees in the front yard.  One day, when we finally own our own home, I would love to plant some in our garden to pay homage to the house where it all began.
