Happy Weekend & Some Web Love

"Painted Ladies at twilight"
Gray skies and lots of rain.  That's what's on the forecast for SF this weekend.  Obviously, I'm okay with that.  Rain is my favorite weather after all.  Don't get me wrong, I revel in a warm sunny day but the rain is far more romantic.  The swollen gray clouds hanging low, threatening to burst at any moment and wash the world away with their contents.  The droplets of water pitter-pattering on the windows and rooftops, drowning out the rough city noises and chatter.  The puddles - oh, the puddles! - pooling together on the sidewalks and street corners waiting for the next adventurer to make a splash.  The Sun is resting, napping, taking a much deserved break from all the shining and warming it’s been doing around here lately.  It’ll be back again, to redden our cheeks and tan our skin, but for now, while the parched earth still cries out for a drink and the trees sway with joy at the finally-falling water, it’s the Rain’s time to shine.

And now, some web love.

Are you a highly sensitive person?  Turns out, that may not be such a bad thing after all.

Thank god I've decided to do 40 Days of Fitness for Lent again this year, because Ben & Jerry's new core flavors - especially Hazed & Confused - mean trouble for my booty.

Learning how to just say "Thank you" when someone gives you a compliment could literally save your life.

I wish I had just a fraction of this little girl's crafting & dressmaking abilities when I was her age.

I have a weird nerdy crush on Paul Rudd (ever since Clueless, really) and his lip-sync battle with Jimmy Fallon just makes me love him even more.

Anyone down for a cross-country road trip?  We'll have at least one must-do for every state to keep us busy.

The deep sea both terrifies and fascinates me, and this is just one example of why.

This week's Twosday submissions were all kinds of abstract and awesome!

Finally, we all know Cosmo and Glamour sometimes give women questionable love advice but did you ever wonder what kind of advice the men's mags were doling out to our guys?  If any dudes take that stuff seriously, we'll have a lot of work to do, ladies.

Happy weekend!

Anya & Jeremy | An Up-Inspired Wedding at Mountain Terrace

"wedding at Mountain Terrace"


Oh, how I love these two.  I know I say that about all my clients (because my clients are pretty awesome & loveable!) but Anya & Jeremy are truly two of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful people I've ever met, and all those qualities were out in full force on their wedding day.  Even a teeny-tiny mishap in the form of a car accident on the way to the ceremony (don't worry, everyone was okay) couldn't overshadow all the joy and love on display that day.  From the personalized, homemade favors to the vintage family wedding photos to the heirloom jewelry adorning Anya, every detail of the day represented something special & meaningful to the couple and their loved ones.  They made the wedding day more than just a celebration of their relationship, it was an expression of gratitude to their community as well, and I couldn't be more grateful that they invited me to capture it.

Anya & Jeremy have a super sweet engagement story inspired by the movie Up.  I have no doubt they'll be adding lots more adventures that little book of theirs. :)

The couple made custom favors for each of their guests.  The ladies received a mason jar filled with homemade brownie mix (just add eggs and butter!) and the men received a custom homemade blend of Anya & Jeremy's favorite Ethiopian spices.  Lucky me got to take home a jar of brownie mix at the end of the night and those brownies were every bit as delicious as Anya promised.
