his + hers.


wedding bands
favorite stone fruits
oxfords & loafers
grilled cheese sandwiches
phones

Aaron and I are convinced we are complete polar opposites of each other, but after looking at this "his + hers" photo montage I put together, I'm not so sure! Looks like we're just two little peas in a pod after all...except for our grilled cheese sandwiches. I don't think I'll ever come around on those jalapenos. Sweet over spicy, always. ;)

**Today is my parent's 36th wedding anniversary! I feel like out of all the anniversaries I remember, this should be the most important. I owe so much to them, they are the best. Happy anniversary, Mom & Dad!

  6. What a neat photo series! So easy to see little differences and simillarites. I wonder what it would look for my hubs and I? I'm sure our sandwiches would look similar. I don't like much spicy but he does! Loved this whole post! :)

  7. Beautiful pics and beautiful sentiment. Is your wedding band a braid or a twist? I'm not close to getting married, like not even on the same planet as marriage, but I hope to be making my wedding band out of my mom's and I like how delicate yours is.

  10. I always think of my husband and I as such opposites. But then I notice how we talk using similar language or wear the same colors as each other in the same day without meaning to. Or how we will both crave orange juice at the most random times!

    Adore this post.

  12. I love this!! This is so cute, I think the same way about my boyfriend and I. I feel like we are so different, but when I think about it... we are pretty similar. I guess that's what draws us in :)

  15. This is such an amazingly sweet idea! I always think of my hubs and I as polar opposites also. I wonder if I tried something like this if I'd find we aren't as different as it seems. I might have to try it!

  16. looking at all the comments, i can tell that everybody loved this clever idea. i do as well. i often think about the differences between my boyfriend and i. from movies, to music, food, style, etc. me and him are total opposites, however we've been together for ten years, so something must be working right.
