Anniversary Cookies

This past Monday (May 31st) Alex and I celebrated two years of marital bliss.
As I mentioned in my previous post, we spent the day driving home from D.C. and stopped in Richmond for a bite to eat.
But I also got a great idea for a little anniversary gift from a blog online. Aren't these cookies sweet?!

Unfortunately I can't remember which blog I saw this on...so if you've seen this please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!

Anyway...
I'm not exactly an experienced baker, so I asked Megan Desko for help. She makes beautiful and delicious cookies and I could not have pulled this off without her.
She made these cookies for Leslie's baby shower:

And she made these for small group one night:

Check out her blog...she's so talented!
It took us two nights to get the job done...and I could not be happier with result. I got a cookie jar from Target and presented Alex with his gift on Friday before we left for D.C. He loved them! (he's seriously a cookie monster)

Thanks for all your help, Megan!
