here are a couple pictures from the beautiful wedding wknd in healdsburg, ca..
views from the back deck.. there was a little lifeguard stand right on the river (not sure what there is to rescue aside from random ish floating down the river- the water could have only been a couple feet deep in the deepest spots), but hell, sign me up. :)
the adorb house :)
wilson vineyard (the first of three) they were all absolutely amazing.. although i think this one was my fav :)
“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.” Tupac Shakur”—
for my birthday this year a couple of my best friends bought me a KINDLE!! i have to admit, i wasn’t on board with these little guys at first.. i really like books, not just the actual content of them, but the smell and feel of turning the pages.. especially hand-me-downs.. you can tell whether they’ve been read at the beach or on the dock or a loonngg time ago by how weathered the pages are. maybe i’m just weird like that.. BUT i just set up my kindle account, and i’ve gotta say, this guy is pretty sweet.. it’s soo easy to use (that means a lot coming from someone who is technology-challenged).
i purchased my first book tonight: “ROOM” by Emma Donoghue - hayley read this and said it was awesome, so i’m taking her advice :) here’s a little synopsis in case you’re interested: “In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way—he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue’s Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time.” —Lynette Mong
think i shall start Room on the 10 hr plane ride (baaallsss) to SF! :)
& speaking of SF, i’m going to get my buns in shape tomorrow mornin at bikram yoga (aka sweat out every last ounce of water in my body)- let me tell you what, maybe the guy in front of me in class on wednesday didn’t almost pass out(like i did) but homeboy’s towel was so wet that is was making squishy/puddle noises when he’d move in to the next pose.. uh, ewwh, like learn how to sweat brah.
back from bhi & missing everything about the little island.. there’s something about being near the water that truly calms my heart & brings a little peace to my mind. must be a sign that i’m meant to live close to the ocean. we had an absolute blast this year & can’t thank everyone who came with us enough for making it so special. more pics to come :)
