put your stamp on it.

maybe it’s my private school education + southern upbringing coming back to haunt me, but recently i’ve found myself doing a lot of monogramming…

the weekender

my weekender was a gift from my parents on a trip to italy, and ever since, it’s been my favorite piece of luggage. i don’t believe in checking bags [on a flight]…

details…

after some research and thought, i decided having my initials laser engraved might be a better bet than having them printed or plain/foil stamped. the leather had already been treated, and was softening and getting a patina from my having used it, and i was afraid any other method wouldn’t last. only time will tell!

just received the larger stamped disc charm in the mail today…

ordered this charm from JLynn Creations – i added it to a sterling diamond charm necklace i already had, and, voila!

puppies for breakfast.

jenga and i attended Puppies for Breakfast last weekend and had a blast!

i was surprised and impressed at how many breeds were represented… from dachshunds to german shepherds to cocker spaniels to large breed poodles and even some pointers, and i think i saw a finnish spitz! here are some of the belated pictures we (jenga gets credit for being my sometimes tripod quadripod) snapped, as promised – see the whole set on Flickr.

Asbury-Hall Wedding

this past weekend, i was proud and honored to be able to serve as the maid of honor at my best friend kat‘s wedding.

we’ve known each other since 1st grade and have been close friends since middle school – i’ve also grown very fond of her now-husband, wyatte, and am so happy for them both. i wish i could have gotten as many photos as i usually do, but thankfully, they had a much more qualified professional photographer on hand! i can’t say it would have been worth trading being able to really immerse myself in the day – from helping matron of honor joy get kat ready, scrambling to put out the expected little fires, making new and seeing old friends and signing as the happy couple’s witness on their marriage certificate. (oh, and also that part where i blubbered tearfully through my speech…)

wishing love and all the best to the new mr. + mrs. hall!

2013: day one.

hello,  2013…

i got to spend the last day of 2012 with some old friends from college [Texas A&M] – how can you go wrong with good friends and home cooking? although the night started off with us catching up on news of jobs + mortgages, which of our fellow Aggies were married or engaged and lamenting our inescapable aging, we eventually shook off the cobwebs and summoned our creaky old bones to have fun like the good ol’ days.

here’s to another new year!

introducing… rocky + bear.

jenga had a play date with rocky + bear today.

rocky + bear belong to my good friend michael and his girlfriend ruby. jenga hadn’t seen rocky for a few years and had never met bear, so suffice it to say, the hour was spent grumbling, sniffing, circling, and finally, the two little ones and the one big one giving each other wide berth. oh well… here’s to laying a good foundation for next time!
