Today is Boo’s birthday!
Booboo - thanks for telling me you like my hair anyway, even though I know you hate the fact that I keep cutting it short. And thanks for driving around for 40 minutes to find that field of sunflowers we passed earlier in the day, just so I could take a few photos. And for being in the photos with me. I know you hate that, too.You have to admit, though - it was worth it. Wasn’t it? For all of that, I’ll have to make you some special birthday blondie bars. Or maybe cupcakes. Or maybe both :)
Happy birthday, Boo!

It’s April, you guys! And I’ve officially sworn off tights. Even if the breeze still gives my bare legs goosebumps.
Boo and I took full advantage of the nicer weather this weekend. We walked up and down the streets of the North End, grabbed Italian for lunch (and canollis for snack), sat by the waterfront and watched the sailboats, packed some sandwiches and headed to the park, chased around some ducks and geese, and had a few cups of Starbucks. Phew, that was a lot. But I’m really excited to have a whole lot more weekends like this one this spring and summer. Fo realz.
How was your weekend?

Happy Wednesday. Boo and I took these photos last weekend, on a perfect Sunday afternoon. If only every day could be like this one. So, here’s a little something getting me through the rest of the week, and hopefully it will help you!
Weekends are for…..
»tea in your favorite mug
»catching up with your DVR
»ignoring the cleaning and projects you have to do, and instead having an impromptu photoshoot with you boo. I mean, right?!
…. And that is what I have to look forward to. What are you looking forward to for the weekend?

I’m a camera hog. I admit it.
If we are out and about, out on an adventure, I’m the one with the camera in my hand. But the thing is - Boo really likes photography too. So while I was out of town a couple of weeks ago, Boo had the chance to explore and take photos of things other than my outfit photos. I must say, he did a pretty good job. Maaaaybe I’ll let him have the camera a little more often.

Have I ever told you guys the story of these paper birds I keep hanging in our bedroom? Well, let me tell you.
To start with, I should mention that, in high school, I was given the nickname “Little Seagull”. Long story short - On our school trip to France, during our junior year, my exchange family didn’t exactly pack me the best lunches. So I spent an entire week picking at and eating everyone’s scraps. My friends dubbed me “Seagull”. It stuck. And I accepted it.
Flash forward a year later. It is our Senior year of high school, and Boo and I have been hanging out. A lot. One day, Just as the bell rang at the end of the day, Boo came up to me holding an origami paper bird. A seagull. I squealed, and asked if it could fly. So he threw it into the air, and….. it did not fly. I told him that was ok, that I loved it anyway. But he promised me he would find out a way to make it fly.
Now, flash forward another few weeks. I spent the evening at the drive in with a couple of my girlfriends. We saw both showings, so we didn’t get back to my house until well after midnight. As we approached my front door, there was sign that simply said “follow the arrows”. Inside the house, there were arrows taped to the floor. Through the kitchen, the hallway, and stopping right in front of my bedroom. I opened up the door, turned on the lights, and was shocked. There they were. The seagulls. Just like the one he had given to me before, but this time they covered my ceiling. And there was a fan in the corner, pointed up at them…. making them fly. Along with it, there was a note- asking me to be his girlfriend.
That’s how it began. Seven and a half years later, and I’ll always make sure some of those birds are hanging nearby.
P.S - for those of you that don’t know, those words in the headboard are the lyrics to Jack Johnson’s - Better Together. Which happens to be one of the first songs we danced to together back in hight school - in my driveway. And it also happens to be the song we danced to for our first dance at our wedding.
I wore this on wednesday for Boo’s birthday. Despite the flashy skirt, It was actually a really low-key day. After spending all day at work, Boo wanted steak for dinner. Sooooooo, we went out for a steak dinner. We then came home and had cupcakes, and went through all of our wedding photos (finally!!). Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
