WILW - Gift Edition



Happy Wednesday, Everyone!!!

In light of all the weddings/showers/anniversaries/any other celebration that just so happens to occur over the summer, I wanted to share with you what I'm LOVING in terms of gifts.

There are so many cute things out there, and below are some of my favorite and most meaningful.

1). I'm LOVING this print I ordered off Etsy from OhLouiseDesigns for one of my best friends for her wedding this past weekend. In her wedding colors is the date of her wedding and below the date it says, "I Shelby take you Brian" and "I Brian take you Shelby", and in the middle it says "Forever and Ever". She actually used it at the reception!


2). I'm LOVING the bridesmaid gifts we received this past weekend. Sort of a bridesmaid survival kit: an umbrella, flip flops for boogying at the reception, a hanger molded into our names (the GROOM made these), and a bag with our initials to carry all of our stuff. All in wedding colors, of course. Perfect, right?!?!


3). I'm LOVING this little bouquet of flowers Mr. Ruby got me on Etsy...just because. And then, it just so happened that I accepted a teaching position last week...perfect occasion for a bouquet. ;)



4). I'm LOVING Mr. Ruby's anniversary gift to me. A few weeks back we were at a local event that showcases local artisans' work. I fell in love with this sunflower vase. Now that we're back home, sunflowers are my newest obsession! Of course my sweet hubs went back a few days later and got it for me!


5). I'm LOVING the anniversary gift I got for Mr. Ruby. It's a "Mod Love Story Print" from ModMemento on Etsy - basically a summation of favorite places, fun memories, etc. from our "love story". Best part? It says "To be continued..." at the bottom!

I had seen these done before, and I thought it would go perfectly in our living room. Unfortunately, these love stories have gotten to be so popular, Brianna from ModMemento had to shut it down for a bit.

Ok, so I already commented about today's post, but I was reading some more of your blog, and I have secretly been dreaming about leaving my corporate job and becoming a teacher, too. But I have made no action to achieve this yet. How did you decide to do it? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
