Our weekend and great gifts!


As Kate mentioned, this past weekend we all ventured down to Enterprise, AL for Leah and Justin's nuptials. It was a great wedding and we cannot wait to show you pics from the reception.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you the unique bridesmaid gift that Leah gave us. I know it is hard to come up with a unique gift for this occasion and she came up with a great gift that we will treasure forever. 

Leah's dad is a skilled carpenter who creates some really beautiful pieces. With Leah's creativity and his skills, they can come up with some beautiful things. For our gift, they took 40 year old aged walnut, cut it into smaller pieces and sealed it to make beautful serving boards. Yes, that is the original color! We can also use them for cutting boards. Aren't they beautiful and each so different?


Among other things Leah gave us, these earrings were also our favorite! Leah actually made these after being inspired by a pair she saw. They are simple, delicate and can be worn all the time. We love these, Leah!



And last but not least, here we are with our crazy friends having some fun in the photo booth! 



Hope everyone had as great of a weekend as we did!
