don’t wanna grow up.

Friend: I need you to help me, I want to write a book.

Me: I can’t help you with that. You need a grown up.

Friend: We are grown ups.

Me: Oh no. We’re definitely not.

Friend: Well then how do I find a grown up?

Me: Look for someone in a pantsuit. With a briefcase.

Friend: Ok. Got it. I’ll go on a hunt for people wearing pants and ask them to help me write a book.


In other good news…I won the lottery!

This seems totally legit, right?!

When Dan Pascali was a young lad, he was told he could be anything he wanted to when he grew up, even if that dream was to be an email scammer. I picture him then, sitting on his grandpa’s knee, chatting about the path he would take to reach this dream, and who would help him achieve success.

Personally, I’d like to school dear Dan on the semantics of proper grammer and punctuation. I think it might help him lure a few more suckers into his ponzi scheme. I mean, signing an email “faithfully yours” isn’t necessarily the best way to build business relationships.

Or is it?

Dan: you had me at “Dear Guaranteed Winner.”


Pro Wedding Pics – Teaser

We used Sierra Blanco Photography for our wedding after being amazed at the photos they took at our friends Katie and Ben’s wedding. Turns out they were also the photogs at our friends Sarah and Drew’s wedding two years ago! These folks are a genuinely amazing couple and we feel honored to have worked with them. They have a rare talent for turning photography into timeless art. Enjoy our sneak preview, and please leave them some love on their blog as a comment!

Here’s what Tina emailed me this morning:

Purchase bananas. Neglect to eat bananas. Watch bananas turn brown on the counter. Feel guilty. Repeat.
