Personal

I am vacillating between two extremes.

One is the panic in realizing that my wedding is less than 100 days away. With such a loooong engagement and destination wedding, the wedding has always been a vague, distant concept that I couldn’t really touch or see or smell. I had other weddings on my plate. Your weddings.

But then I did the calculation the other week and realized, “Holy s#!t! 94 days?! That’s, like, soon. That’s real. Things are about to get legit!”

And so there might have been some panicking in the way Type-As do: lists!
Caterer, in-season flowers, gown alterations, music, boudoir session, honeymoon, Crest White Strips, favors, hunting down RSVPs, date to get the marriage license, what goes into name changing, do I really need that extra dinner roll?, hunting down more RSVPs… Deep breaths.

And then there’s the other: springtime bliss. I love spring like crazy. It makes me feel whole again after the bitter cold of winter. I can get outside and run and run and run. (Helloooooo, Broad Street!  Who else will be pounding the pavement with me this weekend?) Engagement sessions and weddings out the wazoo and it’s spring and the earth is so happy and so am I.

I shall focus on the latter extreme. Busy but blissful. Windows open, doors open, flip-flopped-out bliss. Ahhhhhhh!

In that vein, I give you this month’s Facebook cover images: pretty, little cherry blossoms around the Philadelphia Art Museum. Click to download these images and see them at their full size and resolution.

Deep breaths.

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

April Facebook Cover Images
I try to post the desktop/cover photos on the first of every month. I’d like to say that yesterday’s lapse was an intentional April Fool’s prank but it wasn’t. It was a case of Lindsay reading. You see, when I get into a book I don’t just read it, I consume it. It happened yesterday. Perhaps you’ve heard of this book. It’s called The Hunger Games.I started and couldn’t stop. I sat there on my bed for a few hours and flew through it, page after page, chapter after chapter until it was completely done. It was 3pm and I was still in my pajamas. I had forgotten about lunch. And then I realized I had places to be and wouldn’t be getting ...

Happy birthday to me!
BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!Mine, to be precise. It’s 11am and I’m parched and dehydrated from my party last night. Don’t confuse this for the post-party hangovers of my 20s that resulted from plenty of booze and uncomfortable shoes. This feeling is the result of an overabundance of salt from my CHEESE PARTY. Oh yes.I am beyond proud of my friends who contributed about 18 different kinds of delicious lactose products. Here are some of the winners: a bright green pesto gouda, cinnamon asiago, mango stilton, a Dutch gouda that was special ordered by my friend Neil across the pond, a mustard seed cheddar called Red Dragon, bucheron, cracked pepper Polly ...

Philadelphia Gay Pride Parade and Festival 2014
Yesterday marked the first Gay Pride Parade and Festival in Philadelphia since gay marriage became legal in Pennsylvania just last month.  The parade, which started in the Gayborhood and wound its way down to Penn’s Landing, drew the largest crowds yet.  There were rainbows everywhere.  The Village People headlined the show at Penn’s Landing, several couples married at Independence Hall, and there were community-based LGBTQ booths (hi HRC friends!) as far as the eye could see down by the river. Here are just a few pictures I snapped while celebrating yesterday. As much fun as it was to see the revelry, I look f ...
