Ten Years


Ten years ago today, Thierry and I woke up and marched ourselves over to the Miami Beach city hall and made things official. This day remains one of my most cherished memories. Happy anniversary, Mr.T! Je t'aime.

More photos and memories of that day here, here and here.

Happy New Year 2013 500px

Quick! Before the end of the month, I want to formally wish everyone a happy and healthy 2013. Things have been quiet around here while I finish moving to my new site but it doesn't mean things are quiet at home. Looking forward to 2013. Hope you are too!

After the storm

After Sandy

Waking up to find that we did not lose power or trees or worse yesterday morning was a huge relief. I am feeling very fortunate that, for us, it meant no more than a trip to the store to stock up on supplies followed by two days spent at home. You never know what a storm may bring. It's sad to see the devastation others are suffering due to Hurricane Sandy and my hope is that the road to recovery is a short one.

Toi & Ton Bureau

Toi & Ton Bureau

Here's a scrapbook post while we ride out Hurricane Sandy. Now that the planning and preparing is done, we are home listening to the wind blow. If Sandy is in your neck of the woods, stay safe!

The story. While looking through my iPhoto gallery, I noticed I have a few photos of Andrea at his desk. On school days, we spend time in this room doing homework and this is the view I often have.

The process. What I saw in my mind looked a lot better than what I executed. I did have fun embellishing the heck out of the title. Ha. And, as always, I'm just glad to have put my thoughts and photos together.
