CMK Blog Hop!

Yep, here we are again... CMK blog hop time! This July kit is seriously goooorgeous - it's packed full of yummy October Afternoon goodies, as well as some Lilly Bee papers as well. You can check the kit out in greater detail here. And don't forget to check out the layouts from the other girls on the DT (links on the left)!


I've been wanting to do this layout for such a long time now. I wanted to document where Tony and I met, and how our story began. However, I didn't have a photo of the place we worked together (where we met). We went to the National Zoo in D.C. last week, though, and the zoo is only a few minutes away from the place. So, I was able to swing by and get my photo. It was fun taking a walk down memory lane... :-)

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to face a new week! We had a great time at an engagement party for one of my good friends, and Tony and I also got to enjoy a spa day courtesy of my parents for a belated anniversary present. It was soooo nice, and my parents are the best!! Happy Monday, everyone!
