TGIF! Fridays are great for so many reasons – the end of a (traditional) work week, the beginning of two days to spend with family and friends, the day to finalize those weekend plans, and more. For Valerie and I, though, one thing we look forward to on Fridays is the potential for what the next morning might bring – thrifting! Now, it’s unfortunately not something we get to do every weekend (hey, we’re busy, people!), and generally by this time of year it’s getting a little cooler and, therefore, we don’t go as often (especially to those outdoor flea markets). But, the weather is still unseasonably warm and the opportunity for thrifting, whether at a thrift store, flea market, yard sale, antiques market, etc., is always on our radar.
So, for today’s edition of Five on Friday, I thought I’d share my Top 5 Thrift Shops in the Central PA region! As mentioned above, thrifting doesn’t have to happen at just traditional thrift shops, like Salvation Army or Goodwill, so stay tuned for some other variations too.
With that said, here are my…
Well, now I’m in the mood to thrift! The good new is today is Friday and we’ve got a pretty open weekend ahead of us.. I think I know what might find its way onto our agenda!

Today, September 19, 2013, marks our 4th wedding anniversary! And, as the title of this post suggests, four years of marriage also means that we’ve been together for fourteen years, and that’s something we’re very proud of. So, to reflect and reminisce, I thought I’d share this little gem. Aren’t we cute?
If you read my previous Thankful Thursday post, it’ll come as no surprise to you that I feel that the life Valerie and I share is pretty awesome. We have a lot to be thankful for, and our love is definitely at the top of the list, which is why we tend to make a big-ish deal out of our anniversaries.. though plans for celebrating this year haven’t been completely hashed out just yet. I guess that’s what happens when a certain baby is keeping us both pretty busy :)
Anyway, as you can imagine, planning our wedding (and all details involved) provided the perfect opportunity for Valerie and I to use our creativity to make our special day.. well, special. It was designed to be down-to-earth, yet sophisticated, with a mix of rustic, vintage, and do-it-yourself elements, and to us, it was perfect!
From the weather to the beautiful outdoor ceremony location, from the self-made bride’s dress to the DIY bouquets and boutonnieres, from the guest photo shoot area to the bride and groom choreographed first dance, every detail helped to pull together and create our wedding – the day we chose to honor and celebrate our love. So, with that said, we invite you to celebrate with us and check out more pictures from our DIY Wedding!
Happy 4th Anniversary to my one.. and here’s to many more!
