{30x30 pt5} Tunic Wearing Thespian

Thank you to everyone for your kind anniversary wishes- I really am a lucky girl and I try not to take my relationship for granted and appreciate the small things (like when his dirty clothes actually make their way into the laundry basket!) He surprised me with this beautiful box (I've never received so many flowers that they needed their own box!) of flowers including my favourite- hot pink gerber daisies.  We then enjoyed a culinary delight at Zen Kitchen followed by slow dancing in our living room. 

His anniversary gift to me (besides the flowers and dinner) was tickets to a 6-part theatre festival.  We watched our 4th and 5th plays today, making me feel like a true thespian.  I recently discovered this word and have delighted in saying it ever since.  I always wanted to be an actress and when we were younger, my sister and I were often leads in our church plays- and I always requested the male role.  It always seemed a more dangerous and exciting part to play like the naughty sheep and the handsome prince in shining armour! I guess for now I will have to settle for watching plays, but watch out Ottawa I'm thinking of auditioning for a community play one of these days!

Aren't they stunning?!

  1. Gerber's are my favorite flowers too!

  2. I always suspected you were a secret thespian. :)

    We could do Romeo and Juliet together... you'd look handsome as Romeo!

  3. The flowers are so pretty. I love your outfit, and the necklace is gorgeous.
