a few dedications.

to our house. you are so great. you were meant for us – because we’ve felt at home here since the first time we set foot in the front door. i am excited to make you even more “ours” – including projects like, well, getting enough furniture to make all the rooms usable. :) not to be a downer, but i do wish that my things would all find their permanent homes here SOON. like my camera’s computer hookup. if i don’t find it soon, nobody will read this blog anymore and i will never dedicate another entire paragraph to you for the world (or 20 people) to read.

to alex. we are going to have the same last name in 27 days. YESSSSSSSSSSS. :)

to petsmart. thanks for giving roxie the worst haircut of her life today.

to dominion harvest. my first ever delivery was totally awesome. thank you for sending me asparagus and kale and bok choy and broccoli and goat cheese and lots of other rockin’ stuff.

to bok choy. i was excited when you were in my dominion harvest delivery. i didn’t like you as much as i hoped to. dangit.

to my parents. you are fantastic. for real.

to my brother. i am so proud of you. i try to tell you as best i can, but i really am. you are so talented and hardworking and i’m lucky to be your sister.

to lauryn. jared’s party ROCKED on friday. i love you guys.

to carrie. i am so glad you’re here. for real, girl.

to this post. you weren’t supposed to be sappy.

good night! :)

You liked her?


Present tense, please. Love her. Whatever she is. I’m thinking of her now, Fergus. Will you think of her too?

Yes, the title of this post was penned by T. Swift. And no, it really has nothing to do with this post. I just love her, okay? No judging. :)

I’ve been gone too long – as usual. Wedding stuff/grad school stuff/life stuff is consuming me. Today, I worked both jobs. I’m tired.

This weekend was glorious. Alex and I did nothing on Friday night – but we did it together. I loved it.

Saturday, we went to Charlottesville – McGrady’s, to be exact, for an amazing co-ed shower thrown for us by the Burkes. Good people, good food, good weather – what more could we ask for? I forgot to take pictures. I wish I had a camera elf. You know, to remind me.

Sunday, I went to church with my family. Alex was studying – exams this week! I went to Mom & Dad’s for Mother’s Day, had a great meal (cooked by Pops) and a lovely nap.

I feel like there’s so much I haven’t blogged. Sooner or later, I will. Or maybe I’ll just start with the present, whenever the present provides me with enough time to write the way I’d like to.

In other news, I’m terrified about my trip to Charlotte. I’ll be there two weeks from now. I’m not ready. It’s too expensive. I’m scared.

Sweet dreams. :)
