After sharing my favorite / most meaningful possessions, I thought it would also be fun to share my three favorite decorative pieces. Things that definitely aren't necessary, but make me smile every time I see them! I would consider these to be my favorite purchases, and thought it would be fun to share! So- first the sappy, then the fun stuff. Let's go!
Most Meaningful Things
Notebooks and Postcards
I also pick up post cards in each new city we visit, and those mean so much to me! I love flipping through them and remembering past trips.
RingsMy wedding ring and engagement ring both mean a lot to me, so that would definitely be one of my favorite possessions! Hopefully they will both be on my finger in case of a fire, so I don't have to worry about grabbing them before running out :)
Before Dan proposed, we never really talked about getting married or what style of ring I liked. It always seemed inevitable to both of us that we would eventually get married, so I never pressured him to propose or thought of a timeline. One day out of the blue, he showed me a few pictures of rings on his computer just to see what styles that I liked, and out of the ten he showed me I was immediately drawn to one particular style. Little did I know, he bought that exact ring the day before, and just wanted to make sure I would like it! A few months later he proposed (you can read that story here).
I love the ring so much, not only because I think it's beautiful, but also because every time I look at it or feel it, I think of Dan and our amazing wedding!
I started playing the violin in second grade, and switched to the saxophone in high school. Music has always been a huge part of my life, and in college it changed my life. I joined the Blue Band at Penn State, and made life-long friends, learned important leadership skills, went on amazing trips for football games, and met Dan! I still have the same saxophone that my parents got me as a Christmas present back in high school and love to play it. Any time that I'm having a bad day or just need to relax, I always go back to the sax and play some music. It was the best gift that I've ever received and is still one of my most prized possessions!
this bench a few weeks ago, but I absolutely love it! The style is so simple, but it's such a great basic piece to have. There are so many uses for the bench, so for our little house it's a great thing to have around! We can use it as extra seats for dinner, or as a table when we're sitting on the couch. It's great quality from Ikea and I highly recommend it!
