grimy styles.

ran errands today to rewind (2007) by grimy styles.

discovered these guys way back in the early college years – my two favorite tracks, jr. kong pt. 1 & jr. kong pt. 2 still take me back to when good friends and i used to listen to them live…

cards against humanity.

this clever card game just ate Apples to Apples for lunch.

who knew hilarity would ensue when i went to spend an evening with some old college friends? someone pulled out Cards Against Humanity, and soon we were all red-faced and doing our best to keep our seats, much less not  spit beer out at each other. so impressed was i that i just bought my own deck via Amazon – CAH allows players-to-be to print their own cards from the site for free, but for $25, why not share the love and fiendish joy with the creators…

happily, no beer was harmed or wasted in the playing of this game.

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!

a toast.

dear friend,
we’ve known each other so long.

sometimes
life keep us from each other more than we’d like,
but
we know those quiet lulls don’t dim the light.

dear friend,
i wanted to remind you,
that i too:

celebrate at your joy,
weep at your pain;
worry with you in your hardship.

you remind me of my value
when i feel alone;
i find security in
the silent solace that is our friendship.

i rush to your defense
as you do mine –
there is safety in our trust.

i think of you when the harvest is plenty,
when the harvest is few
and…

dear friend,
i wanted to remind you:
i love you.

– g. cheng

a toast to my childhood friends:
may God bless us in our years ahead.

a DC engagement.

my darling kat got engaged to her wonderful and very-nearly-equally lovely wyatte last weekend in DC – we all managed to gather under the radar and help him surprise her twice!

congrats!
