A gift of paper

His and hers update: Saturday morning started off like most – with an early trip to the gym for Pilates class, but instead of hopping on the elliptical after, I went out to Raccoon River Park to watch my sister cross the 5k finish line. After a quick stop by her house we were off to our first downtown Farmers’ Market of the season. Holy cow – soooo many people. Too many for me to really enjoy it, so next time I’ll have to be there at 7 a.m. when it opens. A quick refuel stop at Smokey Row and it was about time to get ready for the wedding.

Perfect Saturday morning

And what a beautiful wedding it was – such a gorgeous bride and handsome groom. Libby (the bride) used the same florist as we did for our wedding and once again they produced absolutely amazing centerpieces. Congratulations to the newlyweds – Mr. & Mrs. Patton!

After a lazy post-wedding Sunday morning, Marcus and I headed down to Hoyt Sherman for Mackenzie’s dance recital. She did such a wonderful job and looked adorable, per usual, in her costume. Everyone needs a little silver sparkle in their lives!

Now that the week is off to a good start I’ve already started to think about next weekend which just so happens to be a long (and very special) one for us. On Memorial Day (May 28th) Marcus and I will celebrate our first anniversary. Hard to believe a year has gone by, but you know how the saying goes – time flies when you’re having fun!

Now on to more important things – what to give the man who has everything? I am going to try to give traditional anniversary gifts to Marcus. Up first – PAPER. Yeesh – I better get going on this!

Any thoughts on what it should be?!
