how we turned 6

i am such an incredible nerd. i wish i had a sweet picture of Spy and myself from a romantic anniversary outing yesterday—kissy-facing and clinking champagne glasses on a rooftop patio as the sun sets over the Atlanta skyline behind us with a sparkle in our eyes and rainbows and baby unicorns hovering nearby .
