An Anniversary is a celebration of personal and shared accomplishment, and, in our opinion, that celebration should elicit the most attention from couples, family, and friends.
We love flowers so much we could just eat ’em! Every room in our home is laden with flowers: living, artificial, ceramic, painted … just a wide variety of flowery curiosities. But, as much as we love looking at flowers, we love eating them even more.
We dreamed of growing a garden — but not just a metaphorical garden of joy and trust (although this is lovely, too). No, we’re talkin’ the real McCoy: dirt under the fingernails, weed-pulling backaches, scraping the muck off our boots, taste-buds-bursting-in-our-mouths gardening.
This type of list is often referred to as a “Bucket List.” For many years we referred to ours as the “dream list.” We were intrigued when the term “bucket list” came into vogue. Why the word “bucket?” After a quick Internet search, we are sad to report: it is a reference to “kicking the bucket.”
If you know how to crochet, this is an easy (aside from the intense arm workout) and very satisfying project. If you don’t know how to crochet (yet), be encouraged that this is made with the most elementary stitches; a single crochet and double crochet is all we used to make this wonderful rug.
We lived in The Bridger for just over three years. It was an amazing and exhilarating experience. Looking back on it now, we realize that it took a lot of courage and curiosity to live in a bus.
One way to express our love is through giving gifts or cards, and we enjoy doing just that for the people in our life. Here’s a little glimpse into the inspiration and techniques we used for decorating wooden ornaments.
We usually hand make paper for “thank you” cards and envelopes, but recently we remembered salt dough, and a new joy was born. Making salt dough is simple, fun, and inexpensive.
Between our joy of making our own games and our drive to repurpose, we stumbled onto to an idea that resulted in our most used and most beloved game set yet. Yahtzee! And you’ll never believe what it’s made from.
Most people have fond memories of delicious marshmallow Peeps. As vegans, we just can’t bring ourselves to eat one. Nevertheless, Peeps do not go unpunished in our home.
Smoking is social. So, to sort of flip the logic around a bit, we reasoned that it would be easier to kick the habit with a buddy — someone who can share the burden and relief of quitting.
One way we’ve kept the flame in our relationship burning is through “crafts.” Creating beautiful and yet useful stuff together has been a great way to memorialize special occasions and create meaningful, time-honored traditions.
