A Bit of an Anniversary

June 29, 2009


5 years ago my husband asked me to marry him. It was the best question I have ever been asked, and he has brought so much joy to my life. The last five years have seen the blessings of two healthy children, and so much love that saying “thank you” would never suffice.

We got engaged in Vedauwoo, Wyoming, which is not far from our home. We were lucky enough to return there on our anniversary, and share some time to reflect on the past five years of marriage, and the past 17 years of knowing one another. I am so excited to see what the next five years will bring.

Vedauwoo is a gorgeous spot inside of Medicine Bow National Forest, and if you are ever in the area, you should take a visit. The rock formations are unbelievable, and it is a wonderfully fun place for kids who love a good adventure.

Thank goodness for small moments to remember just how lucky and blessed I am

A Bit More Embroidery

June 24, 2009

Recently a friend of ours celebrated the birthday of their three year old daughter. I have been intently working on learning hand embroidery for the past few months, and I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to give my first hand embroidered gift.

It is a very simple piece, with just outlined stitches, but it still felt wonderful to create something with so much intention and joy. My hope is that it will be something that she will cherish as well, and as with everything that we hand make for someone else, a reminder that the art of hand creations is still very much alive and thriving.
