After last year's big trip, I think we were worried an anniversary at home would not feel special, but we were wrong. This weekend was exactly what we needed - farmers markets, people watching from a cafe table, lunch at Willard's BBQ (We even ran into Naomi!! Jeremy laughed at how nervous I was to introduce myself to her.), movies, Paper Mario, walking around our favorite Virginia town, and finally dinner at The Red Fox Inn.

I wanted to thank each one of you who commented/tweeted/emailed anniversary congratulations. You all are the sweetest!

That is all.

PS - my anniversary gifts were all makeup-related, so expect a fun August favorites. ;)

  1. it sounds perfect to me, Thomas and I hardly ever do anything big to celebrate our dating anniversary, in fact I think we forget it last year... oops.

    I love the bun, you inspired me to wear mine like that and I love it on me too :)

    and hurray for meeting Naomi, how exciting, I would have been nervous too lol.
