Music by the Red Stick Ramblers, Hot Tamale Baby A few weeks back, Joe and I threw a little party at our place. After a year of some heavy realizations and reflections, we were a little down. The event was planned to be a celebration of love, life, and our engagement. :) It took us […]

i’ve been leaving the camera out, ready to be picked up at any moment. i am trying to shoot as often as possible, but i’m struggling with a strange intimidation. looking back, it’s telling how i am inspired by windows, the light. every year, my aunt sends homemade wreaths to the family. she lives in […]

one of the most romantic things i’ve found about living in new york city is that it never gets dark. our neighborhood has me convinced it’s one the most beautiful, magical places i’ll ever be. so close to it all but so far away, although it won’t ever be dark. neons, apartments, street lights, traffic, […]

Dealing with the people who provide them can be a little challenging, unfortunately. I enjoy all 3 of these delicious treats […]
Recently, Ashley and I finished watching the complete series of Six Feet Under (Ashley had watched it when it first aired but hadn’t seen it since). I’m very glad she wanted to rewatch; I loved it from beginning to end. Like other great shows, the viewer totally connects with the characters. They’ll make you laugh, […]
the parade rolled through our neighborhood. it was exciting – i especially enjoyed the dancers and all the congregations of irish senior citizens.
