Happy anniversary, love!

Dearest ginger,

Happy anniversary. I am pretty darn excited to be getting married in a little over 8 months so we’ll have a new anniversary to celebrate. Until then, I look forward to spending our time together making each other laugh at stupid things and dressing Betty White up in ugly outfits. No one gets my funny voices and weird jokes (if you can even call them that) quite like you. Looking forward to many more years of ginger-haired goodness (until you go grey, but I’m looking forward to that too so you’ll stop making fun of my gray hair so much).

Thanks for always giving me somethingone to look forward to.

Lurve,

Shannon

Lucky in Love

This weekend began at the local grange fair, where Pete and I roamed around the tents with barnyard critters (the rabbit tent was of course my favorite) and I bought overpriced nachos with “cheese.” We tried to wait it out for the hot dog pig races, but spending another hour at the fair with not much to do apart from people watching and petting goats resulted in us getting antsy and heading home. The next day I woke up bright and early and hopped in my car to head to a 12 hour wedding shoot in the city. I turned the keys and heard my car grumble and give up. My landlord offered to jump my car’s battery, which resulted in more huffs and puffs. Luckily, Pete was home and offered to drive me into Philly (an hour drive) since I had to make a ton of calls (a work emergency came up this week) and didn’t want to be driving while frazzled on the phone.

After a long and fun day shooting my pal Veronika’s gorgeous wedding, Pete picked me up and greeted me with my favorite ice cream, Oreos, Wawa hoagie and cold bottle of water. This boy knows me too well. I am usually starving after shoots (this time I was stuffed since the couple spoiled me with good eats!), so I was incredibly thankful to have him be so thoughtful when he was already doing me a huge favor by picking me up. He is always thinking of me, whether it’s random flower arrangements (that he arranges himself) or a midnight picnic in the car, I can’t say it enough how much I love him.

Here’s the happy couple. Feel free to visit my Flickr page to see the rest of their photos!
