Love this wrapping idea. I tried to copy it for Timmy's Anniversary gift. It was our 9 year on August 14th and I may just have the perfect poem for the occasion:

by: Anne Bradstreet (c.1612-1672)
F ever two were one, then surely we.
 If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever
 That when we live no more, we may live ever.

So I have to explain this gift. I was so excited about it because I found it at the Bargain Barn for 25 cents! Its a 1938 first edition copy of Benjamin Franklin's biography. I looked it up online when I got home and it was selling for $385. Nice. 
“A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.”
        -Benjamin Franklin-

So the wrapping made for a neato bracelet for me afterwards. I wore it all week.

Sabzi on Whyte in Edmonton is the best persian food in town! Its my new favorite. EVERYTHING was perfect. Tim wanted to go there again the next night!

I got to visit Eli's work. I hadn't been there yet and I was floored by what he does, and all his innovative ideas. He's brilliant. He was like all business too- with a desk covered in computers and the phone ringing off the hook. It was so cool to see him work live.

SO handsome.

We stole him away for some bubble tea but it was a little bit tragical because Jenny wasn't there and I wanted to experience bubble tea with her for my first time. But she was so right, I am hooked. The avocado and tapioca is the best one.

 Lindsay is 30! Wahooo. She is my bestest bestest. I get so happy when I see her. She's like the balm of Gilead my mom would say. She loves olives so we went to the Italian Shop (I love the city sometimes) and she sampled all the different olive varieties (see the boy behind the counter, he would have done anything she asked him). Then we had a tasty lunch and one too many italian homemade treats. I've been craving those custard tart things ever since.

Oops, I forgot to mention that we found out that the feta at Sabzy's is Macedonian and it's cow feta as opposed to sheep or goat. Now all I have to do is find out where you get Macedonian feta!
