It Rains in My Apartment and Other Things I Shouldn’t Worry About (Weekly Recap 6)

Originally posted on Adventures in Verdance:
I added the throwback of the shark punching picture for @KatoKatonian. It’s a classic, after all. Once upon a time, my neighbor told me about his harrowing experience regarding water coming through his ceiling when his upstairs neighbor was taking a shower. It involved a lot of his possessions getting ruined and the floor being replaced throughout most of his apartment. I thought, “Wow, that must have sucked,” then moved on with my life. That is, until Friday night when I suddenly heard a fast tapping coming from the bathroom. I walked in, had a split second of rage, then grabbed a bucket. Ever since then, I’ve been playing a back and forth game of miscommunication with the rental company. In my opinion, it’s kind of an emergency when water starts coming out of your vents. It’s been five days and they finally sent people to fix it. And even then, they’re just repainting the ceiling, not finding the reason for the leak or replacing the damaged stuff. Soooo… expect more…

Will You Be My Bridesmaid Care Packages

Originally posted on for the love of nike :
I have to admit, that navigating through the whole wedding game, I’ve felt very out of place. I’m a corny person by nature, but so much of the expected behavior felt beyond corny to me. My fiancé and I did our best to pick and choose what things made sense for us, and what we wanted to avoid. We definitely wanted to make sure that family and friends played key roles in the process. So obviously, the folks in our wedding party were a vital part of everything. I wanted to do something special for my bridesmaids before the wedding, so I put together this care package for them. Being the Nike weirdo that I am, I was first inspired by a pair of sneakers (in particular the ones on the top left). Bring on the blues.  I painted a card that I would go into each girls’ gift, asking them if they’d be my bridesmaid. This is acrylic and ink on paper. Try your hand at it! But if you’re…

A Summer Wedding in Vermont

Originally posted on Sadie's Been There:
Newport, VT Last weekend I visited West Charleston, VT for the wedding of a childhood friend. Until last week the only weddings I’d been part of were those of my parents’ friends and aunts and uncles. Now, quite suddenly, weddings within my cohort are taking my schedule by storm. This Vermont wedding was the first of four I’ll attend this summer alone, and everyone getting married in these weddings is within my age-range. I have been both honored and anxious to be included in everyone’s celebrations. It’s admittedly been a little challenging going from zero to sixty, and to transition from never having glimpsed a wedding registry to navigating the world of shower and wedding gifts, weekender travel details, and resisting over-committing. What I will say is that this wedding in Charleston was an incredible experience to kick start many years to come of wedding festivities. Vermont is gorgeous year-round, but the beautiful blue skies in combination with the intense green of the leaves and the clear mountain air provided an excellent little window into Charleston…
