septembers every year

i love september. i write a post like this every year on whatever medium i am currently using, but it's because every year i love it with the same high-colored intensity.

this year i got married in september. my friend maria (who designed this site) described it as "the exclamation point on the end of summer." the best compliment we could have asked for. i don't want to say too much about the wedding here. i'm still thinking about it. processing it. i don't know what a person can even say about a day with so...


dream shoot with a dream team

If you're not good at making hand-held bouquets, commit to making 50 in 2 days. Buy $1800 worth of flowers on a prayer with no pre-orders. Take over your whole house with floral detrius. Beg your friends to spread the word. Feel full of tears–like up to the neck, full of 'em–at the response and support of all these people who order from you, tell their friends, give you feedback, offer to help. Fall in love with your boyfriend again (even more than usual) when he shows you how to make a multi-point pin-drop map with Google. Make something huge...
