We're leaving town this weekend, and knowing me you can probably guess where. Maybe I should just get a job with Disney one day, or move to California?

I also wanted to post these pictures from life magazine of an all-night prom at Disneyland in 1961. Love love love!

(other favorites: the heartache of wartime farewells, life with jfk & paris 1963 )

It's February 14th! And our plans for the night are to stay in, get takeout, watch An Affair to Remember aannddd maybe Max will let us be serenaded all night long by some of my favorites: the Backstreet Boys. I'm telling you, those key changes (herehereherehere, here - see what I'm saying!?) are Valentines Day GOLD. I don't understand how he can't love them as much as I do ;) When Max asked if there was anything else I wanted to do, that was what my list really came down to. Max + sugar + the good ol' days. Max loves me enough to say sounds great, even though I'm sure he would rather go bowling or get pizza.

(the extent of my valentine decorations are taped on the fridge. 
pictures of us at seventeen years old + our wedding day! how time flies!)

I love Max. I feel lucky that we get to share life together, the ups and downs and everything in-between. One of my goals this year was to learn how to cook new things, and let me tell you - that goal has brought many disasters into our kitchen. One as recently as Monday night, when I threw my gluey potatoes into the garbage and decided it was time to go to bed three hours before 10. Max brought me in a bowl of cereal for dinner and said, "Hey that's okay, your food still turns out 50% of the time" -- and I decided to take that as a compliment instead of getting mad :) I just can't quite say it enough, I really, really love that guy, and am so grateful for him, and that I get him for me.

So Happy Valentine's Day you guys! I hope your day is filled with the people you love and a whole lot of chocolate.

humans of ny

February 10, 2014

One of my favorite parts of a 12 hour flight to New Zealand was the fact that I'd sit next to someone from another part of the world with crazy different experiences than my own. One of my favorites was a woman named Stephanie from Germany, whose life was about as opposite of mine as possible. I loved talking to her about everything from our families to religion to Cary Grant. Obviously I'd love to travel all over the world one day, but in the meantime, I really love when I am able to meet people with different backgrounds or from different cultures, and open my eyes to something outside of my own experience and comfort zone.

I guess that's one thing I love about Humans of NY (website here) or you can follow them on Instagram here. I love that you can catch a little glimpse of someone else's life or perspective - and for anyone else who might love people watching at airports, you should check it out.
