Parade of Lights

Last week, Dean and I walked Downtown to see the annual Athens Christmas parade with J ‘n’ J. We had a great time and were on the way to coffee when the sky opened up for a two minute rain storm. My co-worker took this excellent video of Monsoon playing on the Flagpole/Athfest/40 Watt float: […]

Life Lately

This past Monday was so freakishly warm and lovely, I almost forgot it was November. The east coast has wilder weather swings than the west- that’s for sure- but we’re loving the extra sunshine. Dean snapped this photo on our walk around the University of Georgia campus. My October reads (still reading The Bone Clocks)|Lunch […]

Chattanooga Charm

We came for the dishes, but stayed for the food (Sluggo’s!) and beautiful fall scenery. Walnut Street Bridge for the views and the dogs: Checkin’ out a cute boy at the park: Wild walls: “Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker Man…” We spent a good chunk of time window shopping […]

Heart of Glass(ware)

Some time ago, I had read about the awesomeness of Deck’s Glassware on Eartha Kitsch’s blog* and made a mental note to visit one day. That day finally came and Deck’s was our #1 destination as we rolled into Chattanooga. It is truly a gold mine for thrift diggers and dishware enthusiasts. When Chester, the […]

Carlton Daytrippers

A little bit ago at work, I’d spotted an ad for ‘Neat Pieces’ in Carlton, Georgia and kept it in mind when we visited Watson Mill Bridge Park since Carlton is so close. It is definitely worth the trip! Jimmy, the owner, has amassed a staggering amount of old books (history, war propaganda, vintage picture […]

Horror-ble People

This Halloween will be awesome but a little less awesome than usual since I’ll be celebrating so far from my Halloween soul mate, Kristy. We’ve decorated and dressed up together A LOT over the years. Here’s a li’l collection of almost all the costumes and seasonal geekery. (Still kicking myself for not getting a photo […]

Summery Summary

Woah! Where did the time go? Every summer seems to fly by faster than the last and this was an especially eventful one for me ‘n’ Dean. It feels like we just left our little apartment in Seattle yesterday. First, Dean and I hit our anniversary this past August! To celebrate seven years of happy […]

Life Lately

Summer has been treating us well. Lots of sunshine-y, bird-chirpy mornings, and the easy pace of a college town without students. Dean and I have been waiting until dusk to venture out when the Georgia heat is just right and you can see pops of fireflies. I’m working two jobs now, one at the public […]
