You may have noticed that more and more days are coming between posts here on the blog. Unfortunately I think that's going to be about the norm for a while as I continue to plan our wedding, start grad school, continue to work at my day job and try to run the shop when I can. I'm ok with that though... I am only one person! So for the most part, I hope to keep you up to date with what's going on in my life and will try to do the usual columns when I can.

Speaking of updates, this past weekend was really the kickoff for "wedding season" for me. I attended my friend Anna's bachelorette party, and though I haven't yet asked permission to share photos, I will tell you that the weekend involved a handful of wineries and bars, delicious pizza, bagels from a street cart, an arm wrestle showdown between our bride and another (Anna won!) and a visit to a house that my mom used to live in during the 70's. You can just use your imagination for the rest :) It was an excellent weekend to celebrate the marriage of our good friend, and I look forward to her quickly approaching wedding day!
