When we first met in October of 2004 in New York, we connected so deeply on trips to the local park, taking silly photos of each other, and enjoying the smell of the cold, autumn air. When the weather finally cools down here in Phoenix, we feel so thankful to be able to continue our old traditions. With the temperatures ranging from the 40’s to 70’s, we love to get up early, bust out our sweater collection, and spend as much time outside as we possibly can.
Over the weekend, we did just that! We packed a small breakfast, brought along our ukulele and polaroid camera and just enjoyed a calm morning. It’s moments like these that we treasure, and with Thanksgiving just a few days away, we’ve been reflecting a lot on what we have to be thankful for. We have such a supportive family, talented group of friends and a sweet little home that we couldn’t be more thrilled with. Some days can seem like a roller coaster, but it’s nice to always have one another to lean on and cuddle with at the end of a long day.
In the spirit of giving and the holidays, we’d like to put a little spotlight on Sackcloth & Ashes. If you don’t already recognize the name, Sackcloth & Ashes is a blanket company created by Bob Dalton, that is dedicated to giving back to the community. For every blanket that you purchase, they donate a blanket to your local homeless shelter. Definitely check them out, and help give back during this holiday season.
