weekend love: father's day

 My internet has been down. I hate it when that happens! So here it is Tuesday, and I'm posting about Father's day weekend. I hope you don't mind. On Saturday morning, Trav treated himself to some golf. So, naturally E and I laid (not sure I'll ever know the right way to say lay, lie lied, layed) in bed all morning. I looked over at him with his sippy cup, his Buzz Lightyear jammies, his bed head hair, and his exposed toddler tummy, and said to myself: remember this.

He and I worked hard this weekend on a special gift for daddy. A couple of weeks ago, I feel I scored big on a lot of vintage ties at the D.I. Trav wears a tie nearly every day, so he can never have enough. 

Can you tell I'm drawn to stripes? My favorite tie is the uber skinny on the far left. 

Then I wrapped. I wrapped them all up in something that I will call tie cakes. 

They look yummy right? 

Finished off with wrap hand "colored" with love. 
I didn't leave E out either. He got his own special tie. 
Boy, did he wear it well.

You did happen upon some awesome vintage tie finds!!!! Good job!

I loved how you said "remember this" to yourself—I say that to myself too on occasion, during those perfectly sweet, ordinary moments. Love.

(and love your dress)

Those "tie cakes" are the absolute cutest, most creative thing I've ever seen. I am off to scour for some vinage ties for me lovie pronto. I'm a sucker for a cute man in a nice tie!
