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!

back home from… home.

i finally got the chance to go home to taiwan to visit my grandparents on my mother’s side.

i was only there for 5 days and spent most of the time with family, but did manage to venture out once or twice and snap some photos of which the majority can be found on flickr HERE.

i shouldn’t let so much time pass between my visits – taiwan is the only place of all the countries i’ve visited where i don’t feel homesick for texas…

in awe of canadian art teacher david eger‘s tedious, genius and hilarious (staged live, not photoshopped) recreations of famous/historical images with star wars clone troopers and other star wars characters…
