TWO YEARS

January 10, 2015


We spent our anniversary eating prime rib, talking about the last two years and how they've flown by and what we want to do together this year.

I love that it takes us a half an hour to pick a movie to watch, mostly because I don't care and you care 5 times enough for the both of us. I love when I've started to fall asleep I feel you rub my back and say I love you sweetie. I love that you take ugly pictures of me while I'm sleeping and send them to me, so I can wake up mortified and force you to delete them.  I love that you always hold my hand and open my door. There's no one I'd rather get stuck in traffic with, or eat a fancy dinner with, or go on a Netflix binge with. Thank you for loving me, for supporting me, and for making me feel so safe.

2014 was so fulfilling for me. I left San Francisco and made the move to LA with Greg, created a home together in our apartment, worked with amazing people, made new friends and reconnected with old ones. I'm used to moving around a lot as a young adult; it feels like every two years I'm hopping around to a new city. And while I enjoy the adventure that comes with that, it feels so good to build a life here. I can get cozy and hang things on the wall and know that I'll be here a while. 

Happy New Year!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

December 27, 2014



I was lucky to spend this Christmas with my mom and youngest sister, Chloe, on Bainbridge Island this year. We stayed in our jammies, sat by the fire, and watched a lot of really cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies, per my mom's request. Here is a faithful representation of a Beauty & the Beast - themed movie starring Haylie Duff, likely highly embellished, but also very accurate:

Beast: NO ONE IS ALLOWED IN THE LIBRARY WING!! NO ONE!!

Haylie: I'm sorry, I just thought that - 

Beast: No IM sorry. I just haven't been in here since my fiancee died...and she loved books so it like, hurts, you know?

Haylie: Wow, I had no idea...I'm soooo sorry. I've been hurt too. My mom died when I was a little girl and every Christmas I remember her reading books to me, and then dying. 

Festive, right?

We got to puppy-sit Chloe's boyfriend's family's Corgi puppy, Sam. Or as he was called over the next few days, Sammy, Samson, Sam Wise, Samsonite, Lovebutt. 


He's a little ornament!! can't. handle. it. 


My mom loves really sparse Christmas trees and we ended up cutting this one down literally the day before Christmas Eve. We had this grand idea of doing a photo shoot while we pick out a tree, cut it down etc., but it ended up being this ridiculous hunt for a tree because everything on the island closes at 5. We drove around for 2 hours in the pouring rain (hi, PNW, I'm waving at you!) and tree farm after tree farm was either closed or sold out. Finally, we found a farm that was open and it had about 5 trees left, ours being one of them. Chloe and I ended up cutting our tree down and strapping it onto the car in the pouring rain as the woman who claimed she was "only the cashier" looked on. 

Chloe, Sam, and her boyfriend, Cameron. I think she's happy in this photo? Not sure?


And on a final note, heart butt. love butt. Merry Christmas, friends.
