April 29th, 2008 No Comments

I was running an errand on my bicycle today and stopped in at a little thrift shop that I had forgotten about.

We forgot the bring the suncreen along but thought that an hour or two wouldn’t hurt. Of course, we forgot to factor in that our shoulders hadn’t seen the light of […]

This is my sad little bag. I remember going to JC Penney’s with my Mom to pick this little guy out right before my trip to Europe in the summer of 1995. It was so cool because it had wheels and I could just pull it from train to train. (I know, pretty much everything […]

This one is about thanking the people who loved us, supported us, let us attack their houses with our weddingness, and gave us presents. You guys are the best! I’ve been sitting in front of my sewing machine for three days straight. I’ll delight you tomorrow with the results. goodnight friends. elle. =)
