Happy Fourth of July and Happy Anniversary to my Husband Who's Never Read This Blog!

Fourth of July is a special day. First, it's the day that the USA celebrates it's birth. Which means day off, sunshine, barbecue, drinking summer cocktails, and flame pits. It's doubly special for me because it's my wedding anniversary. This year it's 6 years.

People think we must be super patriotic or something that we picked Fourth of July, though we do love our country, it's really more practical than that. It was a Friday that almost everyone had off work, which meant we could have a Friday wedding (read as: cheaper) without a lot of people missing it to take off of work. It also meant that from our reception venue right off Lake Michigan we would be able to see several fireworks displays, which we did, and it was awesome.

(All of the pictures are by the wonderful, talented, totally great Sarah Immel. We loved her and her pictures, if you're in need, look her up!)

Loved our octagon cake!

Our Fair City
We got married in the chapel at the college we both attended. Small, simple, understated,perfect)

My sister had a dream that I did this so we had to act it out.

So, hope you enjoyed the picture break. If you're in the US, happy Fourth. If you're not, happy Friday! No matter what you're celebrating, celebrate responsibly!
