Starbucks

Over at Penned & Pretty, yesterday's post featured a delicious save the date, and I just had to share it here, along with a story for all of you.
One of the first {of many} sweet little things that Chris did for me involved Starbucks. He came up with this elaborate plot with one of my sorority sisters to get me to the Starbucks on campus at 7am on a Friday morning. I had no clue what was going on and willingly went to Starbucks with my friend, having just rolled out of bed sporting no makeup and my favorite old old old hooded sweatshirt and non-matching sweatpants. I was a sight to see. My dear friend and I were in line to buy our Starbucks when there was a tap on my shoulder. Chris had taken the day off work and driven up bright and early to surprise me and spend the day together. I was shocked...and completely embarrassed that I had no makeup on. However, the day that we spent together was absolutely perfect in every way. We snapped this little gem along the canal in Indianapolis and it remains one of our favorites to this day.

And there you have it. A lovely save the date and a story to boot. You're now on your way to having a perfect little Friday. My friends and I are headed up to Chicago bright and early on Saturday morning for the bachelorette party in honor of our friend Candice. I'm sure I'll be back with stories. p.s. how in the world is it already may 1st?
