up and away!

as you may know, stephen and i celebrated our anniversary a couple of weeks ago. the traditional gift for 5 years is wood, and stephen went above and beyond by building a new closet for me! as if that wasn't enough, he presented me with two of the sweetest gifts EVER:

this beautiful necklace from oh, hello friend
















and he had this amazing cake made by one of our friends:


you might ask...why are these gifts so special?  well, nearly 6 years ago, stephen proposed to me in a hot air balloon. it was a wonderful, magical moment and it was just plain delightful that he commemorated it for our anniversary! i am truly a lucky, lucky girl.
