after years and years here i've decided to lay this little blog to rest.

so much of it reminds me of my past but really i'm lucky to be able to go back through and remember the good and sweet things that were our old life.
regardless, life keeps moving and i'm ready to start my new chapter.. experiencing new things and new love and documenting all of it!

don't be strangers!
i adore every single one of you!


come see!

around the house







today was my first day away from work and meetings and whatnots in too long.
max and i skipped school to sleep in and play knights in our pajamas. we planted and potted gobs of flowers around the apartment, explored for bugs and,when max went to spend the evening with his dad, i got to make myself dinner and scoot around with bare toes to loud music.

so far every changing season makes my new life and surroundings seem a little bit normal. i go through odd bouts of missing my old house or life or self...and it's amazing how having my hands covered in dirt can remind me of who i am.
today i felt normal...

my friend aj packed up his tiny car and moved to nashville sunday.
he has been a staple in me and max's new life and we are going to miss him terribly.
i'm not sure i like change very much. haha. nashville better be kind to him.

one of aj's finer qualities is dancing. he has the legs for it.
so for his farewell party we had a progressive dance party starting at a hotel lounge with a hilarious lounge band and elderly couples ballroom dancing...then back to amy and nate's for more dancing..with props. i'm convinced i've never laughed harder.

saturday we celebrated my sweetest friend amanda's 30th birthday!
she is a doll and we love her to death! 30 never looked better!
the party was lovely...there was lots of spicy food, too much candy, and long lost friends. exactly how turning 30 should be! also,
jesse and i got to be together for the night and it was a wonderful and happy thing.


   



          

   

   

happy 30, love!

easter sunday was as stressful and wonderful as it could be!
max and i started out our day eating easter basket fruit leathers in bed together while watching movies. it was lovely!
after that was church, a meltdown at church, empty threats and lots of making up to do. haha.
such sass for a boy in a clip-on tie!

it was a sweet day all in all. beautiful weather and lots of family.
i'll take it!

d.y.t

 




saturday was a devoted local museum day/
visit the places you've always wanted to visit in town but never had the time or will.

we stopped at the art museum to see the dali/disney animated
short film from the 40's. oh my, was it strange. it made my stomach hurt a little bit..haha.

max and austin were not fans of the film...but were appreciators of the macabre art that the museum has...the naked lady statues...
and the elevator. and maybe the asian wing with the samurai swords.

the rest of the day was filled with the paul laurence dunbar house, the wright brothers national park museum, the old bicycle shop, flying pizza, ben and jerry's, and falling asleep watching north by northwest with kool-aid.


   



  

i can check a lot off of my local history check list!
(and i do have a check list. haha
)

p.s. isn't this grocery store fantastic? it was part of the museum, but oh the colors! the packaging!
swoon.

dayton has a pretty amazing history.
i wonder what your city is best known for?
