happy ny.

Welcome 2009!

Ring out the old, ring in the new,

Ring, happy bells, across the snow:

The year is going, let him go;

Ring out the false, ring in the true.

-Alfred Lord Tennyson

While I was searching for some images for work, I stumbled across these archived, unreleased photshoots of 30's & 40's Hollywood icons. (Yes, I know, please don't even ask what I was originally having to search for.) I just think Audrey looks so beautiful and fresh in these ops... they are my fav.

time keeping practices.

this little site is addicting to watch. the human clock. (It has pictures from around the world with the time on them that are very random & entertaining.) Watch the ticker at the bottom of the picture and every minute it changes... you can even pick which country you would like to look at. I just saw a llama keeping time! Love this.

little people post.

loving this.
you can upload kid's works of art... the letter is precious.

you are beautiful.

this movement is such an amazing picture of humanity at its best... it is such an inspiring way of communicating truth. Mission Statement: "The intention behind this project is to reach beyond ourselves as individuals to make a difference by creating moments of positive self realization. We're just attempting to make the world a little better. " Click here to read more. Stumbling across this website this just made my day...

loving it once again.

I mean, I am fully aware most highschoolers had to read this little work of art for credit and most that were forced, probably resorted to Spark Notes to suffice for their test taking skills... however, I do love Charlotte Bronte's writings right now and all her independent, confident, thought provoking ranting that ensues in this beloved classic. Please do pick up and enjoy Jane Eyre for your reading pleasure, and not because you will be tested on it... you might be pleasantly surprised...

racey lacey.

lace tape... i need this to wrap my presents with this year! Linnie- you need this for the whole Schardt wedding in general.

Miss B lovin.

I am always loving what Miss B. comes up with (blahblahblahg)... and... she has done it again. As I was scrolling through her "On the Download" section of her blog.. I stumbled across all these awesome free little nuggets of goodness. (above) I have posted some of her stationary a couple of months ago, as well. Check her out! She is pretty darn talented. All these downloads are free.. enjoy! ( I esp. adore the library bookplates and paper airplane note cards.)

a little PR work...

Check Spelling

Brooks Whittington Photography did Ryan & I's wedding. Working with Brooks & Leigh was one of our favorite parts of the planning process. They are literally some of the most talented photographers I have ever seen (They have the accolades and awards to prove) and were absolutely fabulous and so accommodating to work with. Right now they are going through each month of 2008 and posting their favorite pictures from each wedding on their blog. They picked two!! for ours... seen above. They also are shooting my good friend Liz and Woei's wedding, the double shot above is from their engagement pic session. Here is a sampling of what they do, along with my bridal portrait they featured on their website. They are now starting to do children ("A day in the life of..") ... I really can't wait to bring our kids back to them! (Bottom picture is a cool shot of Brooks & Leigh.) Here is the link to me & Ry's website. Thank you Brooks & Leigh. You were unbelievable!

a) Thank you Zoggy for your generosity with the yummy chili last night... it was just the warmth and goodness my belly needed. Thank you all for loving me so well.
b) These pictures make me really excited for our Christmas Soiree! yes please! one week... :)
c) Linnie - you get married in (counting today) 23 days! This thought = nuts... I could not be more excited for a couple to tie the knot... almost 6 years running is pretty phenomenal.
They will have an amazing marriage.
that is all. goodbye.

favorite little corner of cyber space.

i frequent this site all too often... kate spade's "behind the curtains" is FULL of inspiration and little finds. check her out. They never cease to surprise me.
This site, found in her "things we love" is ingenious.
