It's Spring!

So I mentioned that yesterday D and I did some “gardening” which on our little patio doesn’t amount to a whole lot. Now you may be confused why I, the woman who hates bugs more than life itself, would voluntarily, go outside.  Outside, where there are bugs! Well I’ll tell you … it just felt like spring.

Not too long ago it was snowing. And cold. And icky outside.  Now while this is usually my preferred season, I love when spring first comes.  Those first few days and that first warm weekend when I’ve tricked myself into forgetting how warm summer is going to be and can just enjoy being outside.

It also reminds me of D’s and my wedding and all the events coming up this time of year.  Next month D and I celebrate our first wedding anniversary.  And like most newlyweds, we still have not made our wedding album.  When we got married all I wanted was the rights to our photos so we could make our own albums.  And obviously that hasn’t happened.  Taking a look at Shutterfly’s website options for photobooks
I think it is about time to do just that!  The prices are really amazing and the quality looks amazing.

So of course that got me thinking about what other things I could get on the website.  My sister and brother just celebrated their birthday Saturday (yes, they are twins and no they are not identical, though you wouldn’t believe how often I get that question!).  Last month my sister’s fiancé threw her a surprise party.  He should have looked for birthday invitationsMy sister would have loved this invitation:
 Yes the image shows an invitation for a 3rd birthday.  But I know my sister would have loved it!

 And of course Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  I was looking at what my options are since I still haven’t bought Mother’s Day cards for my mom, D’s mom, or D’s grandma. (I also buy for a friend’s mother but I’ll explain that another day).  I think this would be my mom’s favorite:
She’d love a picture of her three kids.  (And seriously, how cute are that boy and girl??)

  1. Our 3rd anniversary is coming up. I have been saying for those last 3 years that I wanted to make a new wedding album (I HATE the one from our photographer). I need to go visit Shutterfly. Badly.

  2. Congrats on your upcoming anniversary. I am getting married in June. Good luck with creating your wedding album.
