Okay, okay, so this is really a what I learned in the past week post because I was a vacation slacker and didn't keep up with the blog! I think you all will love what I learned during my much needed anniversary vacation and celebration!
First, I learned that its totally cool to fly a Disney princess kite even if you are 26 or 30 years old. :) The above picture is of Mr. Arotin flying our princess kite at the beach on Good Friday.
Next, I learned that renewing vows is just as touching and sweet as reciting them the first time. Maybe even more touching because the moment is so intimate. Mr. Arotin and I both became teary eyed as our dear friend Colin spoke to us about continuing our love in our marriage as we said our vows to one another again. (This picture is just a preview of the BEAUTIFUL work Shannon did for us for our vow renewal ceremony. More pictures and details of the ceremony will get their own blog post or two.)
For you brides to be or newlyweds pondering saving your cake for this tradition, I would totally do it. All you need to do it seal the cake in tupperware ASAP after the wedding, then plastic wrap the tupperware to ensure no air gets in. When its time for your anniversary, just take the cake out of the freezer and put it in the fridge 3 days before you plan to eat it. Easy, yummy and sweet!
Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach is ridiculously beautiful. As is the majority of the California Riviera.
**Side note to my local SoCalers...if you are ever in Laguna Beach for happy hour RUN to K'ya Bistro Bar. Holy awesome food and at ridiculously low prices during happy hours.
I have a fun DIY invitation post coming up this week and hopefully our vow renewal post! I'm backkkkkk!
L.A. for 1 year and counting :)
