2011

2011. wow. hard to figure out where to begin. it had amazing high points but also far too many low points. like the lowest of low. there was way too much loss… i lost my super sweet grandfather on august 29th. 6 short days later i lost my amazing great aunt on september 4th. and if those […]

i couldn’t wait

i admit it. i couldn’t wait. having an unwrapped present in front of me is plain torture. TORTURE. do you hear me? so i busted into what carina sent me. LOVE!! it’s a very cool silver floating frame with a super cool stitched print of a bertoia diamond chair and it’s a chair that i […]

presents!

i think i heart christmas. or maybe it’s the fun packages and cards that arrive? whatever the case, i love it. maybe it will be a good christmas after all. i especially love it when a package arrives from carina! could she wrap any better if she tried? i think not. she is THE BEST.

i’m back…

for the last 24+ hours i’ve been trying to put into words how i spent my weekend. sadly, i do not think the words i have can do it justice. i participated in an ace camp with erin loechner titled ‘living a fulfilled life of creativity’. i stumbled upon the workshop info a while ago and […]

dindin with the ladies

we (angie, alisa, shellie and rachel) ventured out last night to a new restaurant called piebird. recently opened and a neat idea. the pimento cheese empanadas were fantastic and messy. the five of us devoured them. most of us got their hand pies which are small round savory pies with different ingredients. 2 of us, […]

pool party fun

angie got a pool last summer but i missed out on all the fun because i did not live here. finally got to see it this past weekend. the weather was fantastic. something i haven’t seen in ages living in portland. even the dog had to swim. then she had to chill.

japan

as some of you know, japan has a special place in my heart.  when i was about 6, yuki and yoshi moved in across the street.  yuki was lee’s age and yoshi was my age.  they lived in the states for only a few years but remain lifelong friends of our family. my friend jody, […]

01.11.11

it’s 01.11.11. yeah, i’m not that excited about it. maybe when it’s 11.11.11 i’ll have more enthusiasm. ********* finally settling back into portland and damn it’s cold. it’s been raining ice shards all evening. and i do mean shards. it feels like glass on the skin. i guess it’s better than rain? after returning to […]

holiday-ed out.

it’s been great catching up with people all week – jennifer, matt, kristin, etc….and of course seeing people at the get togethers. on sunday my sister “hosted” some of her chapel hill/durham friends in what’s become an annual “invite yourself over to my parent’s house” thing. oh and when i say “hosted” i mean, it […]
