tree

For the first time ever I own my very own grown-up tree! For a while we had a little mini hot-green tree that I would move around the house at Christmas time. We kept it in the shed (aka the Temple of Doom) and bad things happened to it. Bad things happen back there. Traumatizing things that involve¬†unidentified¬†sticky. So when we registered for things when we got married I wanted to make sure that I added a Christmas tree to the list. I like fake trees, they make more sense …

Update 12/03
Well the other day I get home and there’s a knock on the door right after. Which is weird because nobody ever comes over. It was two very nice young men from Frack Action. I took one look at their clipboard (good canvassing skills …

NYC Wedding Playlist Part 1

I’m actually writing this on Jan 3! I just downgraded all of our internet services like grooveshark (that we used to dj the nyc reception and needed to pay $6 for the songs to fade together) and punchbowl (for the invites) and grooveshark is being a weirdo. Sometimes my playlists disappear and I didn’t want them to go away forever. Especially since we sent them to the Vegas DJ who did SUCH an awesome job. So I did the only think I could think of… screenshots:

We had SUCH a great time at our wedding celebration on October 22nd! You might remember that we had to change the date due to Hurricane Irene, but like you have to tell yourself for all things ever, it worked out for the best!
The event was moved to a Sat night (what part of me thought I was young enough to go to work the day after my wedding, I don’t know) and the guest list more or less evened out! We missed those of you who weren’t able to …

canning

A few weeks ago Evelyn’s awesome parents had Juan and I over for dinner to celebrate our wedding and her father brought out a course guide from the Institute of Culinary Education. We’re pretty sure that it was a ploy to get Evelyn and I to take a Knife Skills class so that we stop cutting ourselves, aaand we’ll do that eventually!
In the interim I took Old Time Savory Canning with Chef Daniel Stone and it was amazing! I always get that weird feeling when I walk into something new …

hurricane

Seriously. And you know, we had an earthquake on Tuesday and a hurricane on Sunday? Hells Bells that’s pretty weird, right? Up until about Thursday at 3pm I didn’t even think that we would have to cancel our reception. Most stuff is done, Caleb and Matt were in town (thankfully, there were only two out of towners) the photographer was booked, as was the bartender. We planned to go to Costco at 12 on Sat, to dinner with friends at 6 and then come home to do last minute prep! …

I’m reading them again because I’m crazy about them. This time I’m noticing so many small details that make it so wonderful. I highlighted this recently, really gets me thinking about my priorities here in this place where the food is free.
What must it be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button? How would I spend the hours I now commit to combing the woods for sustenance if it were so easy to come by? What do they do all …
