Love & Barn's

The trend this year seems to be get married and have a big party in a barn. I must admit, I kinda like it.
I flew to Utah to celebrate love and marriage with my girl Aly. Here are some pics to document the day...

My brother is the Bomb!

Greg is in his 5th and final year of Architecture school. He is amazingly talented and is keeping a blog to track his final year. This being his thesis year he has to come up with an idea and create. I personally am a bit jealous of all the artsy fun. I have secretly always wanted to be a designer. Instead I chose a creative outlet in designing beautiful hair. :) Here is what I helped my bro design when I was home visiting CA last week.....
All the pencils, partly my idea! Yep that's right I'm taking credit for the great art project that will begin his thesis.

Nerd Alert!

I just finished this amazing trilogy of books. The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. I couldn't put these books down. I think I finished all 3 in a bout 2 weeks time. They are fun reads that leave you wishing there was a fourth. Katniss, Peeta, and Gale live in a barbaric and crazy time when survival and love are crucial to live on.

I am a sucker for teenage fictional series, i.e. Harry Potter, and I hate to admit the Twilight books. This series has been fun. Please read them and let me know what you think.

This month my book club is reading Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. I highly recommend this read as well.

This is a little tribute to a state I love! I am coming in about 2 weeks. Everyone knows that this current New Yorker is really a CA girl always and forever, but we can't forget about the 3 years of my life I spent in UT. This is were it all began. At age 18 I ventured far from home with one of my best friends. We grew to become like sisters over these growing up years in UT. We enjoyed the mountains, we made new friends, and had so many many adventures.We got our first apartment, first out of high school crushes and heartbreaks. I learned my trade and did haircuts in the kitchen. We learned how to drive in the snow, I learned how to snowboard. We laughed and cried and loved. I usually come back to these mountains every year hang with my girl, mountain bike hike and swim. Now I am coming back to celebrate this best friends wedding! Here are some photos to the state that will always hold a special place to me...
