five years

five years ago, on a sunday very much like this one, my husband and i were married. the day was a little rainy, a little foggy, but strangely perfect. and while it was chilly outside the room at bristol harbour was rustic and cozy.

these gorgeous photos were taken by gelfand-piper, a charming husband and wife team who found those little details that shaped our day. over 500 pictures and yet that hardly begins to tell our story. it was fifteen years ago at a tiny little college that we met and fell in love. and what has followed has been up and down, serious and silly and nothing short of amazing.

i couldn't be happier.

little treasures

it is wonderful it is to have a sister who knits. but one who knits and shares her treasures, is truly priceless. these glorious little fingerless gloves are a not-totally-unexpected-but-just-as-appreciated gift from just such a one. made from a "small, precious" ball of sienna yarn that i purchased with a project for her in mind. what a sweet and full circle this gift has made.

they will be worn by me with grand enthusiasm and i am already sad for the day when i will have to turn them in for a warmer winter pair...

making time

i've been gone a while.
with planning for the next second storie event in full swing, i've hardly had time for much else. i am determined, however, to make time for art. with the advent of autumn and it's cool air and rich textures, i am feeling a need to get back to my roots. paint, collage and dark lines. i'm not sure what will come of this, but i need to find out.
i'll let you know.
