When it thunders here in Portland my first thought is now, "I bet Alicia is loving this".


happy anniversary, I love your blog


Happy Anniversary! Love the shawl, LOVE the wrapping paper. Goodness that's pretty. And the sky is the perfect shade of pink.


What a lucky sister you have, the shawl you made is absolutely beautiful, and the presentation is perfect. Happy anniversary to you and Andy!!


Happy Anniversary.

Love it when the sky is that colour, we had just that earlier this week. My favourite sky, my favourite colour.
And I always enjoy a good storm.

Adore your photos, as always.

Have a lovely weekend.


Stunning work! Happy anniversary!!! Your love and rightness for each other comes through the blog, which is pretty darn amazing. I can only imagine what a wonderful couple you are. Congratulations!

Thank you for the Portland guide, by the way. My little family just made a visit there for the first time, and your guide kept us sooooo happy. Way better than the tourist books. Such good recommendations from start to finish! Thanks, Alicia!


Oh, what light! What sky.

Happy Anniversary to you both -- it's also our 15th next week. How the time flies.


What beautiful photos, and what a beautiful narrative of your happy anniversary evening. So much love, and talents and generosity, all around~ xoxo


Happy Anniversary! The shawl the beautiful, what a lovely gift. I love the power of thunder storms, love your beautiful description. Happy Friday.


Happy Anniversary to you and Andy!! Our 6 year is on Sunday - July is a beautiful time for a wedding.
Love the lacy beautifulness of the shawl. What a wonderful sister you are.

The shawl is fabulous and you, besides being one of the most talented bloggers I "know", have an amazing sense of humor! Thank you for the smiles you give me and happy anniversary to you both.
PS: I adore thunderstorms:)

Happy Anniversary Wishes ♥


I think the shawl is absloutely beautiful - well done! :-)


Gorg. All of it. Here's to your next 15 years--happy, happy anniversary.


Happy Anniversary!!! I've been reading but not commenting lately-- but immensely enjoying your posts and photography! My sister just got back from visiting Portland and loved it. She said, "There is this bookstore and it's HUGE!..." Of course I knew which one that was... it's Alicia's town and I feel like I've been there too! I am in love with your house btw.


Beautiful shawl and the color is amazing! You're a very special sister. Happy Anniversary! XO


Happy Anniversary to you and Andy with many more to come. Love the shawl. Love the night sky. We had a doozie of a thunder storm here in my little corner of Indiana last night. Only lasted about 15 minutes but for us in this drought laden area it was 15 minutes of heaven.


Happy Anniversary to you two! So glad you enjoyed a nice evening out with loved ones! And these photos are lovely...especially the one of the gorgeous sky and cute little cottage. And the candlelight on you patio is so pretty and romantic! Have a great weekend!


Happy anniversary to you both! The shawl is gorgeous and something I think I will make! I love the delicacy of it, which can be difficult to accomplish with crochet sometimes. It's perfect!!! We had a lightening display the other night, after a horridly hot humid day. It flashed and flashed for an hour, in different areas of the sky, illuminating the fluffy clouds, lighting between behind and in front of them in turn. Just gorgeous! I love your photographs, and it makes me happy that you share them here. Will you make yourself a shawl too? samm in Southern Ontario, Canada


Happy Anniversary!! Fab sky!!!.I think you have a happy sister:)


That shawl is AH-MAY-ZING! Bravo!
