An Open Letter: To Everyone I Know

I realized as soon as we began planning the wedding that leaving people off the guest list was inevitable. I have so many friends, and so many people that I love, but to keep a "small" party cuts had to be made.

This is my apology to all my friends I was not able to invite. I'm not going to single people out, and I'm not going to provide any explanation as to why you weren't invited and other people were. I'm only going to say this - I'm southern, I have a huge family, they all had to be invited first. Please, friends, know that I love you, and wish I could have you here to celebrate this wonderful day that is creeping ever closer.

Lots of love,
Nata Jean

Typewriter Inspiration

I found this photo over at Sweetie Pie Press, and I really love the typewriter display. On the deer...well, I have a love/hate relationship with taxidermy, just like Zombies. On the one hand, both taxidermy and a zombie invasion seem really quite cool as concepts, but they kinda freak me out in practice.

It still really makes me want to put all my typewriters on display in one place, rather than scattered about the way they are now.

Quiet Days

Today is one of those quiet days, when I can just enjoy the sunshine and reading books, when chores aren't all that bad.

This afternoon Richard and I are looking at houses, then it's on to see Cyndi Lauper at Pridefest.

I can't wait.

time for a break

Tonight it is time to take a break from wedding plans.

Now is the time to stop re-checking the guest count and cleaning the blue ball jars for centerpieces.

Right now, I'm taking a moment to look through old magazines, to find the clips that were the reason I kept them in the first place and pull them out to put in my inspiration binders, and get rid of the excessive paper that clutters our house.

I'm so excited right now. About the wedding, about job prospects, about the fact that yesterday we put an offer on a cute little house in Milwaukee. I won't say anything more about the house though, because I don't want to jinx it.

other people's photos - awkward family photos

As a person who collects other people's photographic endeavors, this really speaks to me.
