A Memory of Venice

"venice italy"

Rain pitter-patters on the rooftop.
Salty sea smells fill the air.
Paesans drift by, wading through flooded sidewalks from one shop to the next.
Street merchants hawk their wares as tourists huddle under umbrellas.
November winds numb exposed fingers and cheeks.
Nothing a steamy cappuccino can't fix.

Lazy Sunday & Some Web Love

"park bench at sunset"

I decided to change things up and share my Web Love Links on Sunday rather than Friday.  We could all use a little leisurely reading on a lazy Sunday morning, right? ;)

"web love on twentieth street"

First of all, Anthropologie's summer tag sale is happening now. Get it, girl.

A Harry Potter rap? My life is complete.

Themed cafes are becoming a thing. First, we get KitTea opening later this year and now a hammock cafe is working on making its debut in the city. I'm sold!

\\ Speaking of cafes (and food ...), my gluten-free heart needs to feast on all these treats asap.

I've found some inspiration to keep me busy during the off season. Time to shop for guinea pig-sized props!

We'll be spending the 4th of July in the 8th best town to celebrate the patriotic holiday.  Did your town make the list?

Overslept? Great tips to help you feel pulled together in a jiffy, even without that third cup of coffee.

Things you won't regret when you're older. (Number 16: Taking care of your skin. So important!)

Most of the pregnant ladies in my life have popped at this point but I know there are many more of you out there that can relate to this.  First things first, I'm the roundest...

The resilience of the human spirit never ceases to amaze me.

Last but not least, a good friend of mine recently introduced me to 100 Dates of Summer. I read pretty much every post in one afternoon. It's like a modern day San Francisco Sex And The City and I'm kinda hooked.

And in case you missed it...

We shared images featuring Symmetry in this week's Twosday Link Up.

Happy Sunday!

Mo | Modest Boudoir Photography

"san francisco boudoir photography"She was a little nervous when I first arrived. This was out of her comfort zone. Not something she'd normally do. Not the way she usually spends a Monday afternoon. But a glass of wine and some fun music calmed her nerves. It's not about being sexy, I told her. It's not about looking a certain way or "nailing" a certain pose. It's just about her. Relaxing in the comfort and privacy of her own home, opening up to let the world see her just as she is. Beautiful, confident, strong. Silent, sweet, playful. Modest, enticing, alluring. She is everything. She is a woman.

Gia & Molly | Battle for the Iron Throne

Also known as, the Gray Igloo. The most coveted of all guinea pig property. The opaque dome shades the light just so, allowing perfect privacy for a sleepy guinea looking to rest her lazy head. And Molly and Gia fight for it like Brienne of Tarth and The Hound duking it out over Arya Stark.

They have a second igloo. A purple one, with pretty little sparkles. But it's not quite as opaque as the Gray Igloo (oh yes, this thing has full proper noun status) and thus not as ideal a sleeping spot. Luckily Molly and Gia are never violent with each other. They just fight like stereotypical little girls - with words. Or, at least, guinea pig words.

Squeak squeak squeeeeeeak squee-squeak squeak!

The other night, as I was up lying in bed reading my latest book on the ol' Kindle, I heard the squealing reach a new octave. You see, sometimes after Molly has been snoozing in the igloo for a while, she'll decide to stretch her legs and munch on some hay for a bit, letting Gia have a turn in the Gray Igloo.

Sometimes.

And sometimes Molly will just head-butt her way inside when Gia is already sleeping peacefully and kick Gia out so she can make herself comfy. Knowing this little showdown could go either way, I couldn't help but be pulled from my book to watch the drama unfolding before my eyes.

On this particular evening, Molly was inside the Gray Igloo, fiercely defending her territory while Gia stood right outside the little doorway staring her down. As Gia inched her way closer, Molly's squealing ratcheted to new levels. Gia made her move and tried to slip inside but Molly stood her ground and blocked the little doorway. After a few seconds of staring each other down, Molly backed inside the igloo. A few more seconds passed and, just as Gia was about to try again, the Gray Igloo started to move. Little by little, Molly used her head to nudge it all the way to the side of the cage then turned it around so the doorway was up against the side. She essentially made it impossible for Gia to enter.

"guinea pig igloo houses"
The next morning...


Gia quickly realized there was no way she was getting in now, so she waived the white flag of surrender and retreated to the lame purple igloo. And Molly, tucked away and fully enclosed in the Gray Igloo, slept smug in her victory.

Linking up with Nicole today!

Adam & Cassi | Desert Ridge Estate Wedding

Adam & Cassi are the kind of people who just radiate joy. You can't help but be drawn in by their warmth and when they're together, they're an unstoppable force. Their wedding at the Desert Ridge Estate in Palm Desert was the perfect mix of happiness and humor, just like the two of them. From the Step Brothers-inspired First Look to the sweet tea favors, the day was unequivocally theirs. After the sunset ceremony and Korean tea ceremony, loved ones feasted on delicious food and toasted the newlyweds under the stars and before dancing the night away.  It was an honor to be a part of such a happy day and I'm thrilled to finally share it. If you'd like to read a little bit more about Adam & Cassi's wedding, check out their feature on Ever Ours!
