It's Friday today, and I'm very excited for the weekend. Gus and my first anniversary of marriage is on Sunday! We are going away for the weekend tomorrow to stay in Lanesboro, Minnesota at a lovely bed and breakfast.  It's a beautiful town that we have both never been to, and I can't wait to celebrate our love.

People always tell me that the first year of marriage is the hardest because there's so much adjusting that takes place.  But I believe that the first year of marriage is the best, and the year after that and the year after that.... I've learned there's so much to continually get to know about the other person, no matter how well you think you know them. I've also learned I'm not as perfect as I think I am (Shocker I know!) But most of all, I've learned that marriage is growing together, and learning how to love more perfectly by recognizing that we are both imperfect.  We need help.  So we choose to rely on God for that guidance and model of perfect love, and it's helped us love better. I am excited to spend my whole life by my darling's side loving each other more perfectly year after year. 

In these photos, I'm wearing a two-piece from Shein.  It has lovely bell-sleeves and a tie front that makes it easy to adjust.  The bottoms are loose fitting shorts, and I paired this outfit with wedges that I got from the Buffalo Exchange in South Minneapolis. Such a cool place! Two-pieces are perfect for summer because they are comfortable, but change up your wardrobe from skirts or dresses.  I will link this two-piece below for you to check out from Shein.  


Have a great weekend loves!

xoxo, Alyssa
