Yesterday was the five year anniversary of our first date! We spent the day walking around and eating treats and enjoying each others' company. So, nothing too different than usual! Geoff made me this little drawing and we exchanged a few presents. It was such a perfect day. We bumped into a few friends, too, which always makes me feel extra happy. We had a wonderful dinner at Julie's Cuban and rented some Truffaut afterwards.
Oh and we read such lovely and wonderful wishes from so many of you on Twitter after I wrote a Twitter update to say that it was our anniversary. Thank you, thank you! I was overwhelmed.
The one sad note of the day: I had made this dress the night before but didn't end up wearing it; it was a little disappointing! Lesson learned: do not make a babydoll-style dress (dress 'N' from Stylish Dress Book 2) out of silk dupioni -- unless you want to look like a teepee! It is too stiff a fabric for a style that lacks structure. I found the silk for $10/m at the Designer Fabric Outlet and only bought two meters. The pattern called for 2.7, so the dress is quite, quite short. The print on this fabric is so beautiful, though, so I very well may end up wearing it anyhow!
