anniversary celebration

on this day 4 years ago, I married Wesley. We got married at the Hillsborough, NC courthouse and our ‘wedding’ unconventionality didn’t stop there – I wore a bright pink dress and Wesley’s “best man” was a woman!

We try and celebrate our special day but because of the timing, our anniversary usually falls on or around thanksgiving day. We got lucky this year that Thanksgiving is a bit later than usual, so on Friday we decided to go out 2 days early. We had a fantastic dinner date at the Angus Barn in Raleigh. It’s THE restaurant in the area if you’re celebrating.

here’s what I wore πŸ˜‰ I really liked my outfit and wanted to share.

Angus barn is a huge restaurant! My favorite time to go is close to Christmas, they go all out decorating and I love it!

When you leave, they give you the recipe for their famous Angus Barn chocolate chess pie. Words cannot describe how delicious this pie is.

    1. thanks so much darling! the color choice was actually an accident! when I ordered it through ebay I thought the dress was an oxblood color, and when it arrived it was more of a cinnamon brown. I was disappointed at first but then I got over it and actually love the color πŸ™‚ xoxo
