The Eighth Year

 Outfit Details: Dress: Vintage (remixed here) // Hat: UO // Vest: TJ Maxx // Necklace: Vintage from mom // Shoes: Seychelles

Life is pretty simple on most days for the wee fam and I.  So after this balmy, white-skyed evening spent at the craft store finding the supplies I need to polish of the four DIYs I have going on at the moment - we took a stop at a local park so Keane could run around to his little heart's content.  He loves to run and run and run - which means, we chase, we chase, we chase.  My shoes were not the most sensible for doing this - so this resulted in some very ungraceful looking leaps, skips, and hops to keep pace.  Nonetheless, it was perfectly fun and as you can see we had a not so happy camper on our hands once it was time to leave.  

Gotta run darlings - it's my 8th year wedding anniversary today so I will be happily celebrating with the Mr.  

Thanks for the best 8 years of my life darling.   Here's to many many many more.  You simply make me feel like the luckiest gal in the world.

Love Bunches,

  3. Oh my goodness, congratulations on 8 happy years! There's nothing like being married to your best friend and soul mate. Me and the mister have just celebrated our seventh. You have a lovely little family. I love the 'Rad Like Dad' tee. I remember it being a nightmare trying to drag my little girl away from her games. It gets easier as they get older I promise!

    I love your outfit today. I love that dress anyway but the crochet vest finishes it off to perfection xx

  4. Congratulations on your 8 year anniversary! It was so nice to see both your boys in this post. I laughed at your description of chasing Keane in the wrong footwear!
