Wedding Wednesdays

There are 142 days left until my wedding, kids.  That is both the most exciting and most horrifying thing I have ever said in my entire life.  Nobody ever told me that wedding planning would be easy, and I never thought it would be. I have met girls foolish enough to think that it will be and […]

City Streets

I thoroughly enjoy people watching.  Part of me feels like this habit is perverse and mildly twisted, but I can’t help doing it.  The fact of it is that people are interesting.  It’s incredibly intriguing to look a person and guess at their life.  You can speculate their personal taste, their love life, their fashion […]
