Cotton... the fabric of our lives

Well hello there bloggie world sorry I've been gone so long we had a great anniversary and then life just got really busy. But I'm back now ready to delight you with tales from our Cotton Anniversary. PS sorry I could not resist the pun on the title he he!!

Well anyway Mr. A and I had a fabulous anniversary we both decided we wanted to celebrate our anniversary on our anniversary so we took off Tuesday the 20th and just for fun the following day too.

We started our day by sleeping late on our cotton sheets and then exchanging cotton gifts I got 2 beautiful hand crafted cotton roses and a big beautiful bouquet of fall flowers including my fave gerbera daisies. Mr. A got a new blanket and a book which wasn't cotton but I knew he'd enjoy it. Then we headed out to downtown OKC and just took in the sites we toured the bombing memorial walked along the riverwalk and pretty much played tourist in our own city.


This my friends is why I adore fall in Oklahoma:

after we were finished playing tourist we headed to pick up our keys to our private cottage we were staying in that night and then to dinner at the restaurant where we had our first date.


our sad attempt at a self portrait outside of the restaurant on the bench where we sat and waited on our first date Mr. A tells me often that the time we spent waiting outside snuggling close cause it was freezing outside was the moment he knew I'd be in his life for a long time he tells me "I just fit perfectly in his arms" cue sappy music and altogether now "awww"
