It was our anniversary yesterday! I woked up to this amazing handmade bench by hubby and i couldn’t be happier. What a guy. I was such a happy camper all day! found a perfect spot for my plants and books in the studio. For those of you who don’t know us, we have 3 anniversaries. i know it sounds crazy but we do. Eloped in Vegas, Had a family party at the farmhouse, Los Olivos and traditional japanese wedding ( casey was a samurai ) in my hometown, takayama japan. yes we have a lot to cerebrate and im loving every second of it.
It’s been a crazy summer so far in a good way! I shoot weddings on weekends so we rarely have weekends off together which is sad but we try our best to make it up. More time to work on his cartoon pitch i guess :) We have a lot going on outside of work! Working on our gardens and enjoying the farm life in la. we’re on the second round of tomatoes and cucumbers! I love cali weather, looong summer! We also decided to knock down the kitchen wall and renovating the dining / kitchen area. I feel so lucky to have such handy boys in my family. Cousin Tom is a superman. ( we’re doing everything on our own! ) and building pipe shelving unit, plus redoing the fence for our front yard. Nonstop projects around the house. it’s all DIY. I love you babe! Such a hardworking man, just like my dad, yoshi. heart.
