Petal Collar and Anniversary

February 29, 2012

First of all, Happy Leap Day! Last Sunday the 26th was our anniversary, 1 year since we got engaged and 8 years since we've been together. I wanted to dress fancy and I was feeling quite girly, so this blush colored blouse with a collar that looks like it was made out of petals was perfect! It is adorable and oddly enough it is the exact same shade as the lining of the lace dress... with the two together, you can almost get tricked into thinking that it is one piece. I love it! These photographs were taken at the Berkeley rose garden, Chris and I met at freshmen orientation at UC Berkeley so Berkeley holds a special place in our hearts. We spent the day strolling through campus and throughout the east bay, then ended with a delicious dinner at Trattoria La Siciliana, their dish "Ravioli Porcini Trifolati" is one of the best thing I've ever eaten, just look at my face in the last photo! :)
