Ending MS would be pretty freaking awesome!

Personal


I’m running this Sunday morning. Far. 13.1 miles – Philadelphia’s half marathon. And I’m doing it to raise money for the research, prevention, treatment, and cure of Multiple Sclerosis.

Please help me in stopping MS. It means so much. I appreciate all of the support I’ve already received and have raised about $2000 in the last few months. Every little bit helps. $5 even (yes, one less Starbucks coffee, I know).

This disease has no known cure and affects about 2 million people worldwide. This horrible disease that can cause blindness, paralysis, and can interfere with just about any other function.

Thank you so, so much.

With love,
Lindsay

I saw this pic in the book The Comforts of Home by Atlanta Bartlett and I've been obsessed with this bedroom ever since! The bed, white w ...

June Facebook Cover Images
It’s June!I apologize for being a day late but that’s because I was photographing a beautiful wedding yesterday. The couple was awesome but the weather left something to be desired. A very, very hot day in an unairconditioned church and outdoor formals meant a melting bridal party. They were absolute troopers and I feel sooo lucky for them. Some people (*cough* Andy *cough*) would not have been nearly as pleasant in that sun and heat.This leads me to my June Facebook cover images. The first is how I feel just about everyone felt these last few days. As a side note: huge ice cubes are awesome.As for my second image, I know some people ha ...

Goodbye, DOMA!
Today is an extraordinary day for the United States. This morning, the Supreme Court struck down keys parts of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the hundreds of benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.I keep my political opinions to myself when it comes to this blog but I feel that such a monumental ruling on LOVE has a special place here.My life is surrounded by love and weddings and it’s incredible. That we could even think of denying rights to gay couples is an atrocity. 12 states and DC offer marriages for all committed couples; ...
