the cheese to my macaroni


Today marks 7 years together as husband and wife for Mr. Goldie Locks and me! We celebrated last night at (Camille & other vegetarians plug your ears) Tucanos. While we waited for our table we set up some self-timer shots. Hopefully it wasn't too bad of pda for a public park bench. ;)
I'm having trouble putting my thoughts into complete sentences so here are some words to describe my feelings today and the past years...
Love, astounding, grateful, eternal, unconditional, blessed, meaningful, smokin' hot(oops, how'd that one get in there).

The journaling on this page pretty much says it all...
'Someday I'll figure out why I am so blessed to get to spend eternity with Collin. Until then I will remain astonished at how he saves my life everyday with his hilarious never-failing humor, contagious smile, and his immense amount of love for me.' 6-16-2008 We took these pictures last year when Quincey was 10 days old... such a fun time! The page was for an article in CReaTinG KeEpSaKes magazine.

On another note, a non-gushy one, is it weird that I still get plates from my kitchen to cut circles for my projects?
Paper: Sassafras (Blast Off) (Hooty) (Bottom Trim); Autumn Leaves: Clear Buttons; Basic Grey: Rubons; Font: Rockwell

(PS Thanks to KC and Allison and my mom for watching our sweeties for us so we could celebrate!! xo)

So NOT. I still use plates on my pages too, sometimes saucepan lids work well too.

Congrats to you and Colin. Such a beautiful couple.

PS.plates, lids, bowls, glasses, tupperware lids... isn't that what they're for?

Latrice said...

Happy anniversary girlie! You two are a gorgeous couple. Me and the hubby will be celebrating 6 years on the 8.9.09. I feel the same way about my man.

Keep up the good work you two.

Laura Looooo said...

i always use plates, and mixing bowls, and sometimes cups to cut circles for my scrapbooks :-) keep um coming!

Jemima said...

Congrats on the anniversary. Thats a huge achievement.

Thanks for the tip on using plates for cirles. I love big cirles on my pages but can't justify forking out lots of cash for die cut often not quite the paper i want. Great idea. I can feel the creative juices flowing already.

Congratulions from a lurker on your blog :)

You both look amazing and I wish you all the best.

Just wondering if he has a single brother or nephew or anything? ;)

Still looking for the cherry topping on my cheesecake... :)

Kiwi The Kreator said...

congrats on being so blessed on the hubbs front! it may be weird that you still use plates when you probably have laser saber circle cutters or something but i guess i'm just as weird...because i do mostly 8x11...i used bowls and cups!

Karmele said...

Bonnie said...

Congrats to a gorgeous couple!
I don't think it's weird that you still use plates. They're hard, and steady, so you know it will be a good circle!!!

AbbieTorroll said...

Happy Anniversary to you both - you are such a cute couple! It's so lovely to see couples so in love with each other :) I am from Wisconsin - and one of the only restaurants I remember from my trip to Utah for my sis's wedding is Tocano's! My whole family loved it! I hope this year brings lots of fun and wonderful blessing to you and your sweetie!

I love the bench shots! Timer shots are the best! So much fun and they are more than just a photograph they are a memory of taking it all wrapped into one! LOVE THAT!

your hubyy is looking very Matthew McConagheyesque with the long hair..... Happy Anniversary

The Lonely Scrapbooker said...

What great shots you got with the self timer! I wish I could set up a shot of me & DH to come out like that. I think I just need to try harder (and carry my tripod, perhaps?) People would look at us like we're crazy, but then again, who cares?
Can't wait to see the page you do with these photos! You two are such a gorgeous couple. Happy anniversary!

Hallie Weibel said...

Congratulations to a fabulous young couple who clearly will love each other forever! I love to see your pictures, and how they capture the fun you two have together.

I was doing some math on your last post... Did you and Colin seriously start dating when you were 12?!? I thought it was crazy that my husband and I met when I was 15... Glad your first love was your forever love!

Happy Anniversary!

Astrid said...

Congrats! Love the photos (as always). We just celebrated 14 years...and it just seems like yesterday that we were married. Funny, isn't it?

Oh...I get my plates out to do circles too! Glad I'm not the only one. ;)
