-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.
