Day 360 of Project 365: Happy merry.

Hopping into my time machine to catch up with some posts from the weekend! FunkyPlaid and I were together on Christmas Day for the first time in too long, and it was wonderful.

Day 323 of Project 365: School’s out.

FunkyPlaid and I are going on all the dates before he leaves. Tonight we had a late dinner at Kennedy School. In other news, I still can’t take a level photograph.

Day 318 of Project 365: Feline royalty.

FunkyPlaid and I are facing another holiday season apart, due to store business, so we took advantage of our waning time together and explored the city a little tonight. In our wanderings we stumbled across a terrific shop called Flutter and met its resident cat, King.

Portland is long on whimsical charm, and for that I love it more and more.

Day 300 of Project 365: Iron and lace.

I wanted to commemorate the 300-day mark of this project with a special photo. It’s been wonderful having FunkyPlaid back home this week, and I am dreading having to say goodbye again so soon. My heart was especially heavy today until I read this piece about Patton Oswalt losing his wife. Then I felt like a big jerk for sighing over a separation of several weeks.

My mom gave us this beautiful bit of ironwork from Oakbeck Forge for our sixth anniversary. Behind it is the purse she handmade to match my wedding gown.
