Shower etiquette

Do I need to send a gift to an acquaintance who invited me to a “regrets only” bridal shower?

This is a ride for small children. What is wrong with me?

Alex MacLean is used to seeing the world from up high. The photographer is also a licensed pilot, and he’s spent years “sticking his camera out the cockpit” of a small Cessna 182, snapping what he sees below.

The result is an astounding photo essay that pits man-made civilization against nature, animals against industry, and humans against the forces that, from above, are clearly mightier than we’ll ever be.

Really puts things in perspective.

Portraits of Toddlers Eating Lemons for the First Time

I love to just cut open a lemon and eat it like it’s no big deal. I’ve always loved doing this since I was a kid. I am obsessed with these photos because how could I not be?

Oooooh!

HI, SPRING. 

are you for real this time?

Life lately

since apparently all I do is post pictures of my canine companion and complain about things (everything), I figured it was high time for something a little more substantive.

  • We’re going to Disney in a week!  (for my very first visit)  My mind was blown at how organized you kids/all people are when they go to Disney.  We are now organized.  We have a schedule. 
  • Chris and I both have some leads/things in the works for potential next steps.  #vagueisbest 
  • I’ve chosen and un-chosen (meaning, obtain, try on, decide I like, keep in my possession) about 300 wedding dresses, thanks to the convenience, constant new merchandise, and return policies of places like J.Crew and BHLDN.  Advice to future brides: don’t give yourself 1.5 years if you are indecisive.
  • Travel agents….have you used one? Worth it? 
  • Max pooped in our guest bedroom a while ago and was thereafter banished from that room.  This week, he pooped in our bedroom and is now banished from our bedroom too.  He’s a sad puppy, but carpets apparently smell/look like grass to him, and Resolve is not going to cut it.
  • Pittsburgh Beer Festival is this weekend….I’m imposing some limits that did not exist at the last beer festival I attended.
  • I’ve been thinking about how I can be (feel) healthier- mind & body.  Meditation, Whole30, that sort of thing.  I’ll keep you posted.
  • A man whom I occasionally/distantly worked with suddenly passed away two weeks ago.  He got in his car and died of a heart attack at the wheel.  He was a marathoner, an exercise enthusiast, and a really kind person.  I didn’t know him well, but his death was a reminder about the brevity and unpredictability of life. 

On that note, hug your loved ones & have a Happy Friday!
