  9. Hi, Taza and husband! :)

    I’ve been a recent reader (fan!) of your blog and love reading your adventures with your friends and husband of course!

    You all look so pretty! And of course kudos to husband for that tie! And owls! Speaking of, I wanted to tell you to check out your nearest Anthropologie – I just recently got little owl teacups from there you would love. :)

  10. I’d be more than willing to check if they have any left and send them to you! (There may more of these lil guys hiding in Anthro!)

  11. I like the headband Nay! And I want some cake like that this morning.

  12. Megan
