MIA

MIA

Yes, I have been MIA…for this entire year. I thought I was going to be able to blog all the way through this, but it turns out I can’t blog, leave my job, pack, have a sinus infection, and road trip all at the same time.

Happy Tacky Holiday

Happy Tacky Holiday

This holiday season, Edwin and I were invited to our first tacky holiday party! With nothing tacky to wear – us have tacky clothes? wha? – we went on the hunt for some outfits. Edwin managed to score this tie and worked it with a sweater I stole from my dad…hey, it’s vintage! What you can’t see in this photo is the awesome sequined snowman on my sweater, courtesy of a friend.

Terry & Brenden : Wedding

Terry & Brenden : Wedding

When my sister first called me to tell me that her fiancé wanted to get married on a gondola, I laughed. My first comment was, are you going to have one of those guys in striped shirts warbling out O Sole Mio? “It’s not funny!” she wailed. And she was right. It wasn’t funny. It was genius. Well, maybe not quite genius, since I don’t want my new brother-in-law to get a big head, but it was pretty damn memorable.

Terry and Brenden met when I was sixteen. Yes, SIXTEEN, as in about half my lifetime ago. I remember her coming home from a party at her friend’s house and saying that she met this guy who looked like Ethan Hawke (I still don’t see the resemblance, but hey, that’s probably a good thing these days). Amazingly, they kept in touch while Terry finished college and then made the move back to LA.

Photo Interview

Photo Interview

Last month I had the privilege of attending a friend’s wedding in the south of France, which gave me and Edwin a great excuse to take a vacation.  I’m still working through all the photos, but for now I’m posting just a few photos I took during the trip.

These feet don’t belong to the bride & groom, but two friends who got engaged soon after this photo was taken.

Owners of said feet.  Turns out Eleanor and Andrew were secretly “interviewing” me for their future engagement shoot during our friend’s wedding.  Really.  As I was shooting random photos, they informed me that this was my test to see if I would be bestowed the honor of shooting their engagement / wedding.  Gee, thanks guys. For putting me on the spot. Think I got the gig?

Congratulations on the engagement Eleanor & Andrew!  Can’t wait to celebrate with you guys in person.

Blog Face Lift

Blog Face Lift

It’s finally Friday.  I haven’t been one to really live for my weekends, but I’m finding that lately, I’m doing this much more often.  To start celebrating the weekend, I’m happy to announce that my blog has gotten a face lift!  I’ve still tried to keep it really basic, but hopefully you’ll enjoy the new look.  A ginormous thank you to my husband for helping me with this…well, that is, for doing all the real work!

And before I run off to start my weekend, here’s a photo I recently came across that I took last year during our cross country road trip.

Happy weekend everyone!
