hearts a'flutter

i know valentine's come & gone but that night the wind was WILD & we were't able to light our lanterns. but a week later, conditions were looking better & we jumped on the opportunity. 
before they were lit, we wrote on them what we loved about each other & our pups. they take a minute to light & you have to be sure the lantern is nice & fluffed out or it will burn. they are biodegradable, so no harm to the environment was done :) we have two more & i'm looking at the calendar now trying to figure out the next time we can light them. kodi was mesmerized by them. maggie, on the other hand, was spooked by them. not photographed is her running back inside. 

now that the lanterns took flight, valentine's day is officially complete here at the brotherton's.
till next year...

oh btw {this has nothing to do with this post, but it's a major crisis, so i thought i'd share} -- i'm having a sisterly sleep over with my sister-in-law tonight, which means M & i won't be together for our daily 365 picture. when i realized it this morning it was too late for a quick snap of the camera & i literally stood with my mouth agape. what do we do? i'm sending SOS's to all of you for help. ideas people! ideas!

from,
the girl with a crisis

  1. I think it still counts if you each take a picture of yourselves separately and put them in a collage next to each other or something :)

  2. those lanterns are amazing! we were able to light similar ones while in Thailand for Valentines day! And I saw you each take a pic of each other on your phones and put them together. Or get on facetime or skype on your phone and screen shot!

    1. i think we found them on amazon or ebay. all i know is they were super cheap so we have more. i think taking separate pictures is a great idea! we are lowly android owners & our phones don't have facetime or the ability to take screen shots :( thanks for the help!!!!
