Jenn & Nathan

I love when people I used to work with contact me for pictures!! Jenn and I used to work together at my first job after college – a job I truly loved and think about often. And now, all these years later, Jenn and Nathan are expecting what I assume will be an ADORABLE baby boy. I know that this kid is lucky. These two are so funny and kind and I have no doubt that they will be great parents. They are also crafty – this kid is going to have the coolest superhero room ever. That I have no doubt his dad will definitely take over once Kyle is old enough to move out of it. So excited for these two!

High Five for Friday!!

Wedding season is the best!! Anyway, no need to dilly dally, you have been waiting weeks for this! Let’s get to you wasting time!

Sad. I think this whole Israel-Gaza business should just come to an end. Kapeesh?

This was the best news I received all week! Gym workouts and sunbathing are better for your brain than crosswords and Mozart!! Whattttt?

When Em and I were in Quebec this past week, I noticed an inordinate amount of scrunchies and then I see this article this week: the scrunchie grows up! Good thing I still have bunches!

OK Go is amazing. And I can’t believe I haven’t already put this in a HFFF. Happy weekend, folks!!!

Kham taught me about Iaido!

Last week I did something a little different from what I normally do. In fact, it is just about the complete opposite of couples madly in love but it was so fun to get out of my comfort zone and capture Kham. Iaido. What the heck is Iaido? I’m so glad you asked! Because I learned about it! It is a Japanese martial art. The style of iaido that Kham practices is ishiyamaryu-ryu. No, I didn’t sneeze. It uses a combination of body movement, footwork, repetitive swings, stance, grip, and breathing exercises. Kham wanted to learn iaido because it doesn’t focus on close combat situations, it helps you work through what you are about to do in that moment you realize someone is going to attack you, before it ever actually happens. It was all really interesting to hear about. So, we gallivanted out into the hills of Frederick to snap some photos.
