Last night, in the elevator on the way up to our condo, he was grinning like a Cheshire cat. I asked him what tickled him so, and he let on that he'd gotten "a little something" for me, to celebrate. Oh, no! I hadn't gotten him anything, but he assured me that it was really for both of us. When we got to our door, the package was waiting for him. "That was fast," I said. "Depends how you look at it," he replied.
Turns out that it was a "little something" - a zip drive. He secretly went to our wedding photographer - the amazing Kat Foley - and purchased the digital rights to all of our wedding photographs. We've been married four and a half years, and we never managed to squeak it in the budget. I was so surprised! Bowled over. I'll share more later, but for now, here's one to tide you over:
|Look ma, no hands! (Otherwise known as the most dangerous photo I've ever been in.)|
Today's Fashion Friday post will have to be quick -- tonight Tom's taking me to a surprise dinner (he won't say where) and then tomorrow morning, we take off for an all-weekend writing retreat together!
I'm in love with a skirt.
I'm always on the lookout for full, swingy skirts -- they are my favorite. And I'd been wanting to add a chambray piece to my wardrobe this fall. Chambray always looks so smart, and is so versatile. So when I saw this swingy chambray number at eShakti, I pounced.
|Still available, from size 0 to 26, at eShakti.|
I can't stop wearing it, so I thought I'd show you two different outfits I've built around it.
|This one, which I wore during the Reagan Library outing, was warm & comfy.|

The second version on the outfit comes with a bonus hat! Our awesome friend Samantha had a hat party for her birthday, and we all wore our best chapeaus for the occasion.

Friends are gorgeous, and priceless.
|I thought I oughta show you Tom's duds for the day, too - since he cleans up so well.|
That's his best fedora, and his grandfather's vintage jacket.
That Tom. After being so thoughtful and setting up our romantic/creative weekend, he even got mooshy on Facebook.
Honestly. I'm every bit head-over-heels as I tumbled on this day, seven years ago.
Please take care of you this weekend - and take care of your loved ones, too! I'm off to take smother mine with kisses. Mwah, mwah, mwah!
