Was a really, really good day.

First and foremost, I'm insanely blessed to be married to such thoughtful man...one that knows me better than anyone else in the world. Case in point: I came home yesterday afternoon to a candlelit living room and this gem hiding in the corner:

A fiddle leaf fig tree! And, the most beautiful one I've ever ever seen. I've been feverishly hoping for one ever since I fostered the fiddle tree that found its final home in the waiting room of the dental office I designed last fall. Isn't she gorge?! I'm beyond ecstatic...

Anyhow, the tree and the candles were all in honor of this:

I found myself wishing last night that I will someday have a daughter...who will someday want to wear my wedding dress. Highly unlikely, but hey...I can hope.

So yesterday I made my Maple a manly breakfast, aka, a manfast. Poor dude usually eats oatmeal. I figured he was deserving of meat and potatoes...in one of their best forms.

And then we had coffee and croissants...from our very favorite French bakery.
{Thank you, and congrats Matt & Erin!!!}

And then we made an anni-worthy meal. Aren't these veggies stunning?
Maple knows I love purple potatoes...yes...only because they're purple. 

And Maple wore his wedding tie.

And our quaint little house was all aglow.
See my fiddle tree back there...peeking out from the corner?
She perfectly balances the height of my coveted peacock chair, and really makes the room feel complete. Oh how I love her....

A very happy Thursday makes for waking up to a perfect Friday morning.
I'm working from the couch this morning...decidedly next to my tree...enjoying her view.

Congrats! The tree is beautiful. I also really like your curtains...will you tell me where they are from? Are they the same as the ones in the corner of the pic with your pretty grey dresser? I am curtain shopping, in case you couldn't tell. :)
