If any color reads August to me it’s sunset orange and gold. It’s warm, light and feels like the end of summer. Ranging from peach to soft melon to golden yellow it encompasses all the colors of a summer sunset.

Bring a slice of sunset orange this fall to adorn your body and home. I felt like I needed to put together a really girly collection today, so please excuse the petals, ruffles and frills.
EDIT :: I’m loving this color so much I made a treasury to honor it as well, with some of these items and more. Check it out and leave some love for the sellers.
Our first anniversary (one year married, 7 years together) is less than two weeks away. I can’t believe the wedding was almost as year ago. Jared and I really like the idea of using the traditional anniversary themes for gifts and I think we are going to try to stick with them. That would make year 1 our paper anniversary.
Yesterday Jared asked “for anniversary gifts, do we get the other person something or get “us” something?… I think it is a more romantic gesture to celebrate our being together than your being with me… what do you think?” First of all, I love my husband to pieces. He’s so sweet. Secondly, now we’re trying to think of a paper gift for the two of us. We were hoping to have a house deed in hand, but it’s unlikely we’ll find something and purchase it in time.
Other ideas he proposed were an art piece of some kind (maybe a portrait… anyone have a wonderful artist who does custom work?), a spur of the moment trip (any ideas where?), receipt for something fun (cop-out if we can’t think of anything) or a rainy day savings account (practical and boring).
So what did you do for your paper anniversary? Anyone else sticking to traditional anniversary gifts?
