Fiddle Leaf Fig

Yesterday was my five-year wedding anniversary.  People always say "time flies", and in my case, I feel it's so true!  It feels like last year when I was graduating from law school and preparing for my wedding during the summer of 2006...and now, five short years later we've made our first real home together, changed jobs, and completed our family with two great girls.  It's been a wonderful journey so far...

On our honeymoon in Carmel, CA.

...but the real point of this post is about my other passion.  Decorating.  I've been lusting over a fiddle leaf fig tree for at least two of those years, but haven't been able to pull the trigger on one because of its price.  Well, to my surprise, Darren went out and bought me one as an anniversary present!  Other women might desire jewelry, handbags, clothes...I got my perfect fiddle leaf tree!

My new fiddle leaf's in a gorgeous terra cotta pot that I bought today.  I'll also pick up some moss to cover the roots.

Here were some inspirational images I obsessed over before I got my tree...
