An Ordinary Day (that wasn't supposed to be)

On the day after we returned from a two day trip to Georgia for a medical/dental consult that ended up with me in a new treatment for my ear, neck and shoulder pain, we did a lot of ordinary things like working and for Lenny, yardwork.  I had to have one of my new dental appliances adjusted by a local dentist and run errands in the afternoon.  We did take time to have lunch together and have one of Lenny's favorite recipes.  Later we watched Jeopardy and a Big Bang Theory rerun.  It was just an ordinary day... except that it was actually our 10th Wedding Anniversary!  

It was probably good that I didn't have anything fancy planned since we needed a day to catch up.  Perhaps it was just right to spend our anniversary doing the same kinds of things we do all the time and things we enjoy doing together.

There was one thing I really wanted to do and that was a photo shoot, but I couldn't bring myself to even freshen my makeup at the end of the day.  We did our photo shoot on Sunday.  So later on I'll scrap those photos.

For the layout of this ordinary/special day, I used the sketch from June's Stretch Your Sketch class at 2P's.  I made my own embellishments with various ribbons and supplies I've had quite a long time.

The grid paper, paper clips, and faux Polaroid frames emphasize the everyday nature of the events.

The center of this embellishment is stamped with an Anna Griffin Hydrangea stamp to compliment the hydrangeas I picked for our table and that we used hydrangeas as the main flower for our wedding.

Here are the faux Polaroids I mentioned in this week's TIPsy Tuesday post (How To) .
