The Start of Something

Gavin had a photo shoot on Thursday with my coworker, Trevor. They went for drinks afterward so I met up with them after work, as did Trevor’s girlfriend. It was really fun. It also made me miss Brooklyn.

On Friday night, Janice came over to watch Sex and the City. Gavin was out at a shoot but he eventually showed up in time to say hi before Janice left.


I think there should be a drumroll for what comes next. Ready? I went running! Finally. (The last time I ran was in January.) It was two miles and I took it easy (in terms of speed). I also met up with Elisa and we went for a walk around the park. On the way, we stopped for some super delicious coffee on the east side.


For dinner, Gavin made pizza. After that I worked in the magazine- for pretty much the entire night. I got a lot some and I’m feeling good about it.


Then on Sunday, I went to Barnes & Noble to check out some magazines for inspiration. I also looked at a bunch of decorating books while I was there. Of course.


Gavin had picked up some new prints of his and frames we chose so I hung them on the wall above the TV furniture which I rearranged that morning.


I’m really happy with it and Gavin’s photos look amazing. Back to the magazine. I worked on it again on Sunday night for several hours. Definitely making progress. Definitely a lot more to go.

My Birthday Off

I woke up on my birthday to Milo sitting thisclose to my face. Maybe he was saying happy birthday. Or he’s just a weirdo.


It was a pretty low-key day. I took a winter Friday so I was home from work. Gavin had a photo shoot.


I got an awesome birthday present from Gavin- a phone receiver for my mobile phone. Something I totally wouldn’t have ever bought for myself but definitely really wanted for quite some time (although I never told him that) so you can can imagine how excited I was when I got this.


My mom sent me a really sweet message on Facebook. And I got lots of messages, phone calls, texts and even a video with lots of happy birthday wishes.


In other, mostly non-eventful, news:

I finally cleared off the top of the kitchen cabinets (in a recent cleaning spree.) Milo seized the opportunity and found himself a new hiding place.

And I cleaned the shower head with vinegar- also something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile (thank you Pinterest.) It looks great!
