Haiku my heart- anniversary

and six years ago
with love and laughter we chose
to face it together

My husband and I will be celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary this weekend.  So much has happened in this last six years- the most important being the birth of our two children.  We definitely do not look like we did in this picture!  A lack of sleep and the trials and tribulations of parenthood have definitely made us both look a bit more frayed around the edges.  But I am glad we are facing it all together.  
Hopefully this year we can try to go on a date!  

I missed my haiku last week.  I think my general sleepiness is impacting my ability to be creative.
This week I began work on my cigar box shrine.
Here is a peek at my first drawing...

She will be painted- and applied to the inside of the cigar box.
I have some other ideas that involve a jar of corn and chile that I bought tonight at Trader Joes.
More pictures to come!

I can't wait to see the finished shrine. She looks fantastic, as do the young couple, all dressed up and ready for life.

Peace to you and all you hold dear

Such a beautiful couple -- at the intersection of Happily and Ever After. It gets a little more challenging when rugrats join the scene. I'm in awe that you can find time to make a shrine -- I begged off this year.
