Anniversary Loveliness

I love Sara and Matt's anniversary traditions. Mostly, I love that they do something simple and meaningful to them. I definitely want to plan some traditions for us. We've been married less than two months and I'm already thinking about our anniversary... obsessive planner much? Oh well!

Here are some ideas so far:
  • picnic dinner
  • annual camping adventure
  • once we have our own property, we could plant a tree each year 
  • carrot cake! I'm definitely a fan of making our wedding cake recipe every year... SO delicious!
We're definitely lucky to have a summer anniversary. So many options! Feel free to add your ideas as comments below!

True-to-Self Weddings on CNN

This article came out a couple weeks ago, but it's definitely worth posting the link so as many people can read it as possible!

The only thing I would say is that the title is a bit disappointing. Having a wedding you can afford doesn't have to be because of the economy or your salary at the time. It can be a choice you make based on your values and what you think you should spend on certain aspects of your life. Anyhow, it's still a good read!
