Vows and Rings

In accordance with Colorado Law, David and I married ourselves. There were no "I Do's" in our wedding ceremony, no traditional phrases at all. We wrote our vows together and recited them each in turn. It was moving and exhilarating and emotional and very, very us. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, husband!

Please send a happy birthday to David! I love you, husband!

This morning we had a lovely birthday breakfast with David's family (now my family!) before they headed back to New Mexico/New Jersey. Tonight we are celebrating by camping out in our new tent in the backyard. Since we have lots of wedding left-overs, we are saving the special birthday meal until tomorrow.

Spring Break Trip: Move along

After hearing a great live band in a fun pub (with great beer and awesome soft pretzels) in Taos, we headed back to the car... Here we're all (yes, me too!) moving (sorry about the blur!). Check out that Chase 'shadow'! He's one fast moving young man.

Spring Break Trip: Black and white

Looking up at the "Black and White" store in Santa Fe... I wanted so badly to go in, but they were closing. All of the clothes were black and white, their store itself was black and white too. Very cool. Very New York. Not very New Mexico, but very Santa Fe.

Tea Spot II

David tried a tasty green variety, while I savored the Boulder Breakfast blend---one of their own variations on the ever-popular English Breakfast, my favorite black tea.

My Valentine

I was going to write a really sappy entry... but instead I'll just leave you with the cheesy title and photograph of my favorite person.

I love you, best friend!

A few snapshots from my birthday celebration last Saturday. Thanks to everyone who joined us! It was a blast! (Note to self: next time, take photos of friends before you partake of the bottomless glass of wine special.)

High School Friends

In honor of the arrival of the weekend, I give you a picture taken last weekend of Alice and I enjoying happy hour beverages in downtown Boulder. Alice (on the right) flew in from Washington, D.C. for a quick visit on her way to California and we had a blast!

Date night

David and I dined at the Rio last night; we drank 3-shot margaritas and enjoyed the southwestern holiday decor.

Despite having a great time and enjoying the food, we are counting down to eating real Mexican-style food next week in New Mexico.
