Happy Valentines Day?


Happy Birthday Gavin!

Dear Gavin,
Remember the night we put put packing tape all over our faces and told people we were burned victims and laughed and laughed and laughed? I don't think I have laughed that hard before in my whole life. But we also knew it was kinda sad because people really do have burns like that. I remember we both felt a little mean for laughing so hard. And remember the time you made me put my mattress on the roof of my house and I almost slid off in the night while I was sleeping? Remember how for my last birthday you gave me a necklace made of bright green yarn and on the end was a vile of your blood? and I wore it to church? I miss you Gavin.


Your heart out

Blake's green tie inspired prep school photo shoot (yeah)

This one (above) is me getting a scolding for doing what I did (below)

I love that I forced Karly to stop watching her movie- in the middle of her favorite part no less- to take pictures of me carelessly dangling her shoes over the Pacific Ocean.

"What's with the red socks Jane?"

I just really like bunchy socks with dressy shoes.


You were a child...


I thought you were quoting a movie...

Karly thinks a good way of avoiding responsibility is to tell people that she thought they were quoting a movie.


Dear Son,

No one likes a liar.
No one can resist a folk singer.
No one wants their heart broken
even if they claim they do.
No one gains what they already have.
No one worries about factoring binomials after high school-
but "word problems" are probably a good thing to remember
(example- a man sits down in a big fat chair and eats 12 bananas.
Then he eats 3 apples.
20 minutes earlier he ate his own hand.
What percent of the man's food is fruit,
and what percent is human flesh?)
No one gives something for nothing.
No one will be ungrateful for a mixed tape.
No one regrets jumping from high places, especially into water.
If you ever find yourself on a relatively high cliff
(let a few other people jump off before you)
but definitely
No one will blame you for letting others go first.
No one is in the wrong place at the wrong time
our lives do not deviate from a set path.
No one makes everyone else happy 100 percent of the time.
No one accomplishes their life's purpose in one day.




Just Kidding



This artist had a show up in Anthropologie in the Pearl District a few months back. Her photography is very amazing and she does really creative stuff with polaroid film. Check out some of her work on her etsy site!


Name Game

I wish I would have found this website BEFORE all my friends had their babies. But just in time for my sister to pick out a name for her baby BOY on the way...and for those of you who love looking at names, (where they came from and what they mean) as much as I do here you go.
