Celebrating Six Years


C loves to surprise me. (I love it too!). He came home from work on Friday with a huge box gift-wrapped in pink paper (the girls at the local Hallmark store were kind enough to wrap it for him). It's funny considering I used to be a designer at the Hallmark headquarters and my very good friends designed the gift wrap (how cool is that!?!). Anyway, we ate dinner prior to opening the gift and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was in that long box. I kept thinking it had to be some type of furniture because I'm dying for new furniture for our place, but the box was just too skinny. I should have figured that the gift was waaay better than furniture, it was an easel. I've been painting on our dining room table or on chairs covered with old towels. It was the perfect gift.


On Saturday, we celebrated our anniversary at 2941 Restaurant. It was beautiful & delicious.

What a fantastic gift!!! Happy anniversary to you both!

So funny about the gift wrap too. I have to tell you, going into the Hallmark store is so much more fun now that I know what goes on behind the scenes! All so cool! :)

Karena, I used to live in KC, now I live in the DC area.

Anonymous, you can get an easel like that at an art store. It's a nice solid wood with a lifetime warrenty so it runs a few hundred dollars.

Happy Anniversary! What a sweet gift and awesome night. I've been hearing great things about 2941 from co-workers and have been wanting to try it for a while now. Glad to find another DC area girl and a super stylish one at that!
