Fairy Tales Come True…

When I arrived home from work today, this is what was waiting for me…

9.28 anniversary card1

9.28 anniversary card2

I married quite the romantic!

Along with the very (prince) charming card, I received a gift certificate to make my very own purse at 1154 Lill! If you’ve never heard  of 1154 Lill they are a chain of small boutiques where you can design your own purse, handbags, wallets, etc. They have boutiques in Chicago, Boston, Kansas City, and Philly. I made a purse at the Chicago location a few years ago and had so much fun designing it. Although, I nearly had an anxiety attack trying to choose my fabric – they have so many to choose from! It took me nearly 3 hours to design, but it was well worth it because now I have an original purse to show off. And, soon I will have two – thanks honey! 

Aside from the beautiful card and purse, I came home to a wonderfully homecooked batch of chicken and dumpling soup!

9.28 dinner2

This is one of my absolute favorite soups to eat! The dumplings, when you make them right, turn out like little fluffy clouds that float on top of the soup. So yummy!

I am so ready to just veg out tonight. See you all in the AM!


  1. SO darling!

  2. Aww, that’s so sweet. And that purse thing sounds awesome!
