War and Peace

Or, a little update. Summer is here and the beautiful weather is bringing back lots of hazy memories of the first few weeks of Freddie’s life.

Lucie and George’s wedding

Apologies for the less than amazing quality of all of the pictures in this post. They’ve all been chosen because they capture the feelings and feel of what was a wonderful day, but none were taken by professional photographers. I love them all, though!

And then I read this. Regular readers … Continue reading

It’s a sign (post)!

In May, Tom and I were lucky enough to attend the wedding of my very good friend, Allyson, to Victor in Yosemite National Park. (You can read about how we cried throughout the whole ceremony on Far from the wedding crowd and my review of Yosemite on the Honeymoon Project, if you’re interested.) Suffice to … Continue reading
