2 Year Anniversary

19 Mar

Today marks 2 years married to the love of my life. I can’t believe it has been 2 years already! This time 2 years ago we were gathered with all of our family and friends as they witnessed us become husband and wife and celebrated with those we love most. Le Roux and I have so many memories between us and many more to come. I love him more and more each day and so excited for the future and what we have to look forward to! Adventures with him are my favorite and I couldn’t imagine anyone else by my side. I never knew I could love someone this much. He is my best friend, my soul mate, and I am so lucky to call him my husband!

Here is a look back at a few photos from the best day of our lives!

Tonight, Le Roux and I have reservations at Del Frisco’s here in Charlotte to celebrate. When we get home, we are going to rewatch our wedding video and exchange gifts. Saturday, we have planned an entire spa day at the Ballayntyne Resort with each other to just relax and spend time together!

Engagement Basket

5 Feb

One of our friends got engaged recently and her fiancé was sweet enough to ask all of her best friends to go to Jacksonville to surprise her and celebrate with them on the night of the engagement {take notes boys..}. We of course wanted to bring a present to say congratulations and decided on a cute and practical engagement basket. We have made plenty of baskets in the past for bridal showers, but never one for an engagement. It was a little difficult at first because we immediately thought of items that started with her soon-to-be initial and items that said “mrs” {like these Kate Spade earrings} but decided against them all because that doesn’t really go with an engagement. We then switched our focus to the ring and what’s essential for wedding planning.

1. Bridal magazine – the Knot
2. Bridal magazine – Martha Stewart
3. Bottle of champagne {to celebrate}
4. Diamond ring bottle stop
5. The Knot Book of Wedding Lists {aka wedding bible}
6. Engagement card
7. Nail polish {to make sure her nails are always looking perfect as she shows off her new rock–we chose the Essie Bridal Collection because we’re big into details. Check the names of the colors below}
8. Ring holder
9. Jewelry cleaner {to keep the ring sparkling}
10.A picture frame {for their favorite engagement picture}

We then crafted a “Congrats” banner, purchased a basket from Michael’s, and added some pretty tissue paper.
