it’s official. we have lived in boston for two years. two years ago we drove up the east coast with all our things loaded in a uhaul and our little honda hitched to the back. we were more than lucky to have one of our best friends chris help drive, unpack, and provide jolly good company. i recall eating turkey sandwiches at gas stations. watching the oscars for a bit at the hotel. robert and i have not had turkey sandwiches in nearly 2 years… and we have barely seen any movies this year… i digress. two years ago we were young, hopeful, determined, inspired, and best of all: newlywed. we had no idea what adventures were coming for us here in boston. expectations were not met. things did not go as planned. as life usually goes, you know? plans, shplans. i do say, each sloppy kiss from our baby son, each jibber jabber, each eruption of laughter are proof that we did something right.

ps- i just discovered the illustration above, and all of the artist’s works are just as great.


ahts festival

so, although i’ve been very reliable with the new music monday posts, my personal posts have certainly taken a turn for the nonexistant… did that sentence make any sense at all? i feel so tired these days. i really should be napping with archer right now, but i wanted to upload photos, read a book, and have some “me” time.

with robert working full time (over overtime) and taking grad classes full time i’m keeping very busy around the house. i officially opened our last box today (we moved over a month ago!) but there is stuff everywhere. my goal is to get it all squared away before wednesday when grandma and grandpa come to town.

that’s a quick update. these are some photos from a couple sundays ago. look at archer in blue jeans. what a little man!

we’ve been walking to church each week and it’s so awesome. i think everyone should be able to walk to church.

my brother had a booth at the “boston ahts festival” this year. we took the t downtown to check it out. makes a sister proud, i’ll tell you that much.
