If you ever feel the need to start a sentence with “not to be racist but…” — stop. You’re about to say something racist.

Have you heard of GOMI? It’s basically forums dedicated to trashing popular bloggers (some legit complaints, some “what is wrong with her face?”) It’s so mean but also fascinating. I can’t stop reading them.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys, remember me?

2013 was a bit silent on the blog front, and for that I apologize. (What’s that? You didn’t even notice? Cool.)

Anyway, one of my goals for this year is to start blogging regularly again. About what? I’ve not quite decided yet. If you have suggestions, feel free to share in the comments.

Stay tuned…

Saturday ended up being an awesomely impromptu day full of activities. Our friend Judy hooked us up with free tickets to the Prefontaine Classic (thanks Judy!), so we rode our bikes down to Hayward Field, stopping at the Saturday Market on our way. Then we met up with Sam and Matt and drove out to LaVelle Vineyards to use up a Groupon I had purchased a while back. What I thought would be a quick tasting with a few slices of cheese and apples turned into a leisurely picnic of cheeses, prosciutto and chocolate truffles on a deck overlooking the vineyard. Way to step up your game LaVelle! From there, we continued on to PK Park to watch the Duck baseball game. It’s days like these that make me stop and appreciate all the cool stuff we’ve gotten to do since moving to Oregon. I feel very lucky.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Tonight, we are heading to the McDonald Theater to see Hells Belles, an all-girl AC/DC cover band. Tyler is weirdly excited about it. I am trying to talk him out of the “meet the band” portion of the evening. We also have a couple Skype convos scheduled with potential wedding photographers. Exciting times.

Here are your Friday links!

Ira Glass on Storytelling from David Shiyang Liu on Vimeo. I think the message of this video can apply to a lot of things in life – and it’s something I need to remember.

If you’re not familiar with Ira Glass, I suggest you check out This American Life.
