First of all, of course photography.

gardening, i loved planting your garden with you

shabby chic stuff, your rubbing off on me.

Charleston, i want to go back with you.

antiquing, you have taught me to love old things.

cafe mocha. duh.

stacks of books, literally all over the house, but i love it and i will do it.
cross stitching, i remember just sitting and watching you do this at night.
(i picked this picture because it was an S.)

jewelry, the artsy stuff

decorating for halloween and christmas. my favorite holidays because of it.

70's rock music, i get my good taste from you.

your gorgeous mommy.
i love you so much and i'm proud to be your spitting image. and not just because your gorgeous, because of everything else.

Happy Birthday!

some stuff that makes me laugh

yep, i do this too.

once when i was in 2nd or third grade my friend came over and told me that her and her sister stuffed their bras and went somewhere, so we stuffed ours and walked around the neighborhood.
it was fun and every girl has done it.

i love the movie Funny Face. I think its my favorite Audrey movie. every time i watch it, it makes me want to be a beatnik....or at least dress like one.

love of my life.

3 years.
its such a small number compared to the years i want to spend with you.

the two of us a perfect fit, your all mine.

In every living thing there is the desire for love

my whole heart, my whole life.

The spaces between your fingers, are meant to be filled with mine

this heart is yours, please take care of it.

your so handsome.

Many are the stars I see, but in my eye no star like thee

i am thankful that i have you.

there is no one i want more than you.

there are so many things i want us to do together.

i believe we were meant to be.

can we just stay in bed all day?

lets spoon.

your my best friend.

when i'm in your arms i feel safe and comfy.

3 years ago, today, i don't think either one of us knew what we were getting into, but i wouldn't change one second. I love you with all my heart my darling and i wish i could be with you hugging and kissing you.
Happy Anniversary
- yours

Happy Bithday Alphonse
Mucha is one of my favorite artists. i don't think he get as much credit as he deserves, he is the creater and master of Art Nouveau. it started with a theatre poster and went from there. his work inspires me and makes me love being a woman. this is him in his studio, organized chaos, like most artists. i love it. and the rest are just some of my favorties.

Alphonse Mucha
July 24, 1860 - July 14 1939
