Brooke and Jeff: A wedding 10 years in the making

On December 4th, 2010, 2 of my closest friends finally tied the knot! I’ve known Brooke and Jeff for 10 years now and got to watch them go from strangers, to friends, to Jeff falling hopelessly in love and Brooke being indifferent, to Brooke falling just as hard and making me the 3rd wheel through […]

Busy, Busy, Busy!

So, you know you haven’t blogged in awhile when your mother asks why you’ve stopped blogging. Oops! At least one person out there thinks I’m funny, even if it’s the one who birthed me. She still counts, right? Hi mom! I haven’t quite fallen off the face of the planet, but I bet I’m close […]

Jack’s Purple Foot

Bryan collects action figures.  Sometimes he’ll even customize them with paint, sculpting, or whatever he feels the figure needs to make it more true to the character.  Last night, he happened to be painting one purple.  While House snoozed on the desk in front of me, Jack decided she was interested in his painting process.

Fourth of July Weekend

Every year around the 4th of July, my college friends and I gather for what we’ve dubbed “Crabfest.”  This year, it took place at the brand new house my friend and her husband bought in South Jersey.  Not to be confused with North Jersey or the Jersey Shore, of course!   The town is small […]

I’m going to be honest here.  I’m not religious.  At all. […]

Baltimore Child Photographer: Welcome to the World, Abigail!

We swore Jen was going to have a boy.  I had a dream that it was a boy.  The baby shower cake somehow ended up blue.  When people gave her little outfits with butterflies on the butt, we joked about him wearing them inside out or as pajamas when no one was around. Well, this […]

Paging Dr. House

We did it.  We got another cat.  Special Agent Jack Bauer was getting sort of clingy and really ruining my productivity by sitting in front of the computer, or on the keyboard, or on papers I need.  I figured she might benefit from a friend. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but I began […]

Baltimore Child Photography: Music’s what I need to keep my sanity!

Today was easily one of the worst days of my life.  I’m talking really, really terrible, stressful, and unlucky. Let’s just say that everything that could go wrong did.  It included being woken up by a cat fight, vomit, a bee sting, and multiple accidents involving my car.  After I told Bryan all my tales […]
