"would I rather be feared or loved? easy. both. i want people to be afraid of how much they love me."
My great-grandfather was an artist, both of my great-grandmothers were seamstresses. My grandfather was a wedding photographer, my grandmother was a seamstress, my father is an artist and musician, and my mother is a seamstress and fashion designer. So yeah, I pretty much had no choice but to inherit creative genes.
There's this running joke that I'm actually 75. And not in an "Oh you're an old soul and love vintage things" kind of way. More like a "You're kind of cranky and you should probably hand out in the old folks home" kind of way. Proof: 1. I love cardigans. No really. I have a ton and wear them almost daily. So far, no brooches to go on those cardigans. Give it time, I'm sure it's coming. If I wouldn't get weird looks, 2. I'd probably plop a lawn chair out in my driveway and just watch stuff. I love watching stuff. People are my favorite thing to watch, but I'll watch just about anything. Neighborhoods, trees, parking lots, the wind. 3. I say random things like "Wow, that building went up fast" and "I can't understand anything this rapper is saying" and "I'm not going out, it's past 6:00 pm."
Honestly, I just love coffee in general, but nothing beats that little white cup. I'm a proud gold card member and legit have a spot in my budget spreadsheet for Starbucks card reloads.
You will hear me talk about him. A lot. He's my dogchild and I couldn't imagine life without him. He's a whippet we rescued in 2012 and he'll be 11 this year. He's grumpy, scared of everything, and only likes a handful of people. His favorite thing in the whole world is laying on you (preferably while digging his pointy elbows in your side) and cuddling under a blanket.
She's 12 years younger than me and is the coolest person I know. She's also my second shooter on wedding days, so you'll see a lot of her! She's super funny, trendy, and has some pretty great dance moves too.
We were married in September 2009. Way before Pinterest - which is probably a good thing. Our wedding was on the beach in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. I tease him about how he's 10 years older than me, but really he could outdo me any day of the week since he's a firefighter. Our favorite things to do together are watch Netflix, find great happy hours, and act like our dog is people. Yeah we're those types.
