a big congrats to Jacob & Jess!

this weekend we flew all the way down to Atlanta, Georgia to officially welcome Jess to the fam.  we had a great time seeing everybody and celebrating together.  i haven't had time to go through my pictures yet, but here's one that i picked out of the pile to share with you.  hope you had an equally lovely weekend!  (dorky pun intended! :D)

*those pens that i showed you a couple of posts ago were for the bridal party - i loved how they turned out, but i forgot to get a picture of the set before they were given out!  oh well, perhaps next time.

what a great weekend...

Friday:  The other half surprised me with flowers and a lunch date

Saturday:  Got to enjoy a coffee date with the sis, then enjoyed a wonderful evening of dinner/a new board game/visiting with friends

Sunday:  Got to go to the beach after church (despite not being able to feel our fingers or faces!), cleaned up, then went for coffee & crib at starbucks with the other half  (two dates in three days = double bonus!)

All three days:  Sunny & Clear - LOVED it!

So many favorite things in such a short span of time - and I didn't have my camera on me for any of it!  I do, however have this picture from our 2-year Anniversary trip when I beat him at crib for the first time ever!  (very exciting!)

Hope your weekend was equally lovely!

handstamped pen barrels

I designed the monogram & he built the pens.  We're a team like that.  Despite the hideous lighting, I managed to take some photos along the way:

bare pen barrels

the end.

That's the number of years since we got to do this:

It was the perfect day and it just keeps getting better!  (I'll spare you the mush and leave it at that.) Happy 2.5 years, babe!
