i don't think i know any girl who doesn't love anthropologie. their little gems are covet-worthy. but, alas, their pretty pieces come at a high price and force me to admire from afar. afar being through my computer screen. sigh. leave me a comment below and let me know which piece is your favorite! and head to anthro's website to check out more prettiness.
now, as promised, here is the story of my REAL love, the man. he and i met my freshman year of high school (his sophomore year) at a church car wash. though we didn't do much besides throw soap suds at each other at the time, we later got to know each other on a mission trip to jefferson, texas. he and i had been randomly placed in the same group, and he was the only other person from my church in my group (we had teamed up with several churches). i remembered him from the car wash. it's a funny story because the whole time he was actually asking me for tips and advice on how to impress another girl in our youth group. i thought he was so sweet for being so concerned with impressing her, but i kept my distance and remained his friend and advice-giver for the next year or so. we started dating the end of my sophomore year of high school, and the rest is history (almost five years later)!
well...almost. you see, since yesterday was valentine's day, i thought i'd make a little post about our unique valentine's day situation. since my man is a year older, he went off to college an hour away while i was still a senior in high school. when it was my turn to leave home for school, i chose to go to new york, given i'd probably never get the chance to live there ever again, and nyu is a great shool. needless to say, we've only spent one valentine's day together in all four of our valentine's days together. this is a picture from our very first v-day (in 2006):
we were babies!
this is us in january at a texans game(the most recent picture i have of us), before i left for school again (nearly four years later!) the yellow roses in the post below are from him this valentine's day. he sure does know what i like :)
hoping you all had a weekend of love and rest!
