OOTD: Floral for Pi Day!

Every year on or near March 14th, Steve and I hold a Pi Day party. After we got engaged in February, I started thinking about having a party to celebrate, and it seemed only natural to combine our engagement party with our annual celebration of pie.

I’m so glad we did. The party was incredibly wonderful: so many friends from so many parts of our lives came together and showered us with love in the form of delicious, delicious baked goods (as well as a few savory pies like quiche and pizza). If I could bottle up that feeling, I would.
