what would auntie marie do?
r.i.p. auntie marie. i cant begin to explain how amazing she is. stay tuned and i will make it proper poetry to remember her by. (100 years of life!)

she can't be beat!!

she was a masterful calligrapher, among many other things.
(she didnt hand craft this, but she could have.)

starting today, i am learning this, slowly. are you?

in one year from now, i will be moving to portland into a giant, beautiful, victorian duplex or bungalow!
with emily! it will be amazing!

as you will notice, most of the portland craigslist house-mate descriptions are very very portland-esque.

no way! i can't believe i am missing out on living with this dude and his cat!
one of my favorite photographers ever!
