It's a Date.

Hello friends, I'm checking back in to say hi and to show you one of the fantastic little items I've come across during my many (probably too many) Pinterest and Etsy wedding searches: Junghwa's Personalized Jewelry (created and designed by Amy Stewart), my favorite being the petite initial tagspictured here with our initials and wedding date.  I tried to hold off on wearing it until our big day in October, but, well, I failed.  That's OK, right?    

Happy Monday, and speaking of important dates - happy 2 year anniversary to my sister and brother-in-law!  Cannot believe The Yellow House Wedding was already 2 years ago.

Oops, I Did It Again.

Yup, I disappeared on you for another month.  Blerg.  How about some images of this very cool art installation at the Tower of London to make up for it?  The ceramic red poppies (888,246 to be exact!) signify and are in honor of British and British colony fatalities during World War I.  Designed by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, the name gives me chills: Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

The installation was unveiled in London just today, so if you're over there, go!  August 5, 2014 represents 100 years since the first day of Britain's involvement in WWI.  Poppies will be added to the installation over time, with the final flower being "planted" on November 11, 2014, Veteran's Day in the United States and a day of remembrance in the U.K.  See more images here.

Until next time ;)

P.S. Happy Birthday, Kleine Schwester!
