Shades of Apricot & Honey

Multifarious notes:

-My summer days are long, hot and sweaty, spent schlepping camera equipment all over the city. If photographing children isn't considered manual labor, then I don't know what is.

-We're headed away to the mountains for a long wedding weekend over the 4th. I hear there will be canoes! I am excited about the canoes. Also stoked about escaping routine and the computer.

-After avoiding the task for weeks, I finally bit the bullet and went dress shopping. Whenever I am in need of finding a specific item, the rule of the universe says I won't find it, so imagine my gratification in finding two dresses that met my expectations (cocktail-style, form-fitting but comfortable, solid color--preferably black, royal blue or kelly green--a little bit of flair, no alterations needed, high-quality, etc.). I bought both, because we have three weddings in the next three weeks, and every girl deserves to feel great in a fancy new dress, yeah?

-Two years ago today, Tiho proposed in Paris. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I wake up every morning so damn grateful to be able to do life with him. Next month will mark four years together. Upon arriving home after our first date, I called my sister to tell her that I had just eaten dinner with the man I would one day marry. At that time in my life, he was a complete surprise, and that was the most wonderful thing of all.

  1. Manual labor for sure. And awwww...so sweet.

  2. went back to read your engagement and through that your french picnic.
    beautiful life.

  3. That spread looks mighty nice-well done. I wanna see the other dress! And yes, I will always remember that fateful night. (I just giggled out loud because I accidentally wrote "fartful" at first and that seemed very fitting). LOve yoU!


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
