Happy 196 months of dating… And 13 years of marriage! Four homes, 3 cats, 2 kids and a literal cross the country move later, who would have guessed that a decision to be lazy and skip out on sightseeing with the group in order to nom fish and chips and enjoy the lower UK legal drinking age in a random hotel pub would eventually lead to this crazy, wonderful life.

Twelve years later anniversary dinners have gone from Michelin-star-make
-reservations-months-in-advance-in-NYC-and-sell-your-first-born-to-pay-for-it to a no reservations needed (yet still awesome) Ethiopian restaurant with a hangry kid in tow and ice cream afterwards and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Happy anniversary Ryan!!! 💕💕💕 Thank you for 12 crazy and amazing years.

Success! Emma made it through her first musical! Although she was super upset when I told her she had to pretend to be 5… didn’t know there was an age minimum when I bought the tickets. Ryan was also probably super excited…. to have Emma replace him...

Woohoo – finally Friday was here and we were off to my sister’s graduation.

I’ve been lucky enough (I guess… come on, admit it – graduations gets really boring in the time period between when you see people you know walk in to pomp and circumstance to when their name is called) to be at several school graduations, but never an Art School graduation. It was definitely different, and pretty cool. Before each degree was awarded (e.g. Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting, or Photography, or Game Design, or Illustration…etc.) they had snippets of work that that graduating class did. Holy hell, the game design snippets were awesome, but sadly just concepts. (I told my sister if she put me in contact with some of the game design graduates I’d invest possibly up to $40 in bringing their games to fruition, but she claimed that wasn’t enough.)

My sister’s work didn’t make it to the big screen (pissing me off, she was WAY better than some of the stuff they showed), so I’ll give her her own shout out here.

Dear American Airlines,

You are the best!

XXX and OOOs,

*We had about 10 minutes from when we deplaned from our first flight to when our next flight took off due to huge delays out of the Northeast (remnants of yesterday’s storm) and so I never thought our luggage would make it to Hawaii.  I couldn’t believe it when we saw all of them in baggage claim.  How did AA do it so quickly?
