I've been loving Fleet Foxes' new album so much lately, and it has reminded me of my extreme keenness for Simon and Garfunkel, developed increasingly over the course of my childhood. I have such fond memories of lying in the living room with my mother in the summer, listening to S & G albums. The harmonies on the title track of Helplessness Blues, in particular, are just so reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel, I can't believe it. And I love it.

Congrats, David and Shanin!

Congratulations to David and Shanin, a lovely couple I had the pleasure of working with a few months ago, who were married at The Gene Autry House at The Parker, Palm Springs. All of the event design, florals, and day-of coordination was done by the amazingly talented ladies over at Bash, Please. I was blown away by all the gorgeous details! Max Wanger did the amazing photography. See more lovely photos and info over at 100 Layer Cake.

Written by Hand

I've been meaning to post this forever, but am just finally getting around to it! Was super honored to have been included in the article "Written by Hand" in the Spring edition of Martha Stewart Weddings. So many talented calligraphers were featured, and I felt so honored to be included. Thank you, everyone over at MSW!

Hello, Summer!

Hi there! Can't believe it has almost been three months(!) since I've popped in here. This has been an absolutely insane wedding season. I can't wait to share some of what I've been working on with you! I love my job.
And can you believe it is full-fledged summer already? At least here in Tucson it is. I'm determined to make the most of summer in the desert this year. Although I think that will entail getting myself up to higher elevations as often as possible and waking way before the sun rises to take advantage of "the cool" before the day begins. What are your favorite things to do to beat the heat? Ideas, please!
