This is my 100th blog post. That seems like kind of a big deal, right? So I googled what other bloggers have done to celebrate their 100th; apparently, it's "traditional" (snort) to post 100 things about yourself. No thanks. Instead, here are 10 of my favorite things instead. You're welcome. And, by the way? Thanks for reading :o)

Succulents. I adore them. They're perky and happy and remind me of places that are warm. Too bad I can't seem to keep them alive.

Eating outdoors. I don't care if it's a picnic, a reception, or a fancy catered party. Everything tastes better outside.

NPR. I just learned about the NPR calendar, in which artists from across the country produce work that typifies NPR for them. How come I didn't know about this until now?

Museums. And also, museum gift shops (P.S. The best museum gift shop I've ever been to was at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London).

Lanterns. And Christmas tree lights. And fireflies. And anything else that sparkles at night.

Animals. Duh.

Gardens in Unexpected Places. Like roofs. Or back alleys. Or cities. The garden pictured above is okay, but veggie gardens are the best.

The Fall. For all the reasons you love it, too.

Roger Ebert. The master of movie criticism. An inspiring writer and person. True story: Sometimes (like, really often) when Ross and I decide to watch a movie I'll first read his review, then I'll watch the movie, then I'll read the review again.

Bookstores. Especially ones with really, really tall shelves and narrow aisles. Oh, Powells.

Happy 100th post, blog!


  1. the npr calendar looks so ridiculously awesome. want.

  2. I think I am a little worried about you... succulents are darn hard to kill.

  3. Just started following your blog after stumbling upon your wedding photos (I was google-ing vintage inspired weddings with hopes of getting a little inspiration for my own!)
    It was REALLY refreshing to see such a unique, inventive LDS wedding reception.
    Happy 100 posts, and keep updating so that other stylish LDS to-be brides can follow in your footsteps!
