Kind of missing Culinary School...

Especially days where we toured such beautiful vineyards. 
So stunning...
I maybe would love to own a vineyard one day, and make delicious wines and jellies.
 To sit on the screened-in porch of my elegant stone house, drinking wine and eating bruschetta.
 To be harvesting grapes as a gorgeous thunderstorm rolls up, forcing the harvesters inside to eat, drink and be merry.
To live in a Chateau, with beautiful rolling hills of grape vines.

Wine Appreciation class definitely contained quite a bit of daydreaming.

Once upon a time there was a girl in love, who wasn't a huge fan of animals. I mean, they were ok...but not something she would ever own, or think of owning. 
She got home from school one day and her mother said, "Did you see what David brought home?" (David was the name of her Love, you see)
"What is it?"
"Go look outside..."

 And the girls heart melted completely away and she fell even more in love with that wonderful man of hers.

(Update: the dogs ran away during the night, so sadly David didn't get to keep the dogs after all)

Church Love...

Don't tell, but sometimes Dave and I laugh and joke around in church.
Shame on us!

And sometimes if Dave isn't there I get so lonely. And so cold without his arm around me.
I am so blessed. 

Just Us.

We watched "Barefoot in the Park" on Sunday.
I am completely Jane Fonda's character (though not quite as obsessive. but almost.)
And Dave is similar to Robert Redford (just a lot more fun and less stuffy).
We were cuddling on the couch and laughing out loud.

"Make him feel important. If you do that, you'll have a happy and wonderful marriage - like two out of every ten couples." {Ethel, Barefoot in the Park}

What does the "C" stand for?

Got this adorable Bridal Tea invitation in the mail today ^^
The C really took me off guard until I realized it stood for my soon-to-be-brand-new-Last name: COBB!

Hooray :)

today was my birthday!

It was simple and lovely.
Dave had to work - which was sad. But the rest of the family made up for it.
Breakfast in bed:

{Brother looks like a little midget.}
Waffles with warm blueberry sauce and whipped cream with watermelon and OJ.
It was delicious - thanks family.
Oh, and brother picked me some flowers.

But then I had to work: 

On my birthday, for heaven's sakes!
After work we hung out with Dave's best friend (and Best Man) - Dan. He's great!
My day was finished with jalapeno poppers, White Chicks and Reed's Apple Ale.

On to my 22 year! I wonder what adventures this year holds.

hello little blog

Leesi and Dave. 
Completely in love. 

This is us.
