Link Love + A Golden Anniversary

Hey there!  Here are some ramblings from my week/end…

Before C and I set out on our road trip to Connecticut on Saturday, we stopped by Cafe Volan for some tea and biscuits (how very British).  They get their pastries from Balthazar Bakery in the city– yum!


After revving up with coffee/tea and biscuits, C and I headed north for my aunt and uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary party. Talk about monumental!  When was the last time you heard someone being married for 50 years?  It’s a wonderful testament to their love.

I was touched to be a part of the fun night–they renewed their vows, and we danced and ate the night away.  I even talked to a few cousins I had never met before!  It was an inspiring and love filled night~I carried the feeling home with me that anything is possible…


On Sunday, the pumpkin garden officially became spooky!  Here are the before, during and after pictures–the carving was fun and I think the end result was pretty awesome.  The glow of the lit up pumpkins reminded me of all the loot I collected from trick-or-treating.  I remember making that candy stretch until Easter some years!

What can I say?  Love is in the air from the celebration this weekend–here’s a cute post on how you can define love.
