ace of wands.
this is happening.
floatsam and jetsam from the changing tides:
(i'd like to thank tim kasher sufjan stevens lcd soundsystem modest mouse elliott smith the smiths neutral milk hotel beck etc for keeping the loosest of ends together.)
|do you have a springtime fire under your butt?|
|good bye baagan, you have brought me the people i need and i appreciate your role in my journey.|
|old roseville backyard. with boxer dog abbey. :)|
|a room of her own.|
|streets that feel good for us to wander: old houses and trees and rickety old cars.|
|scopin' local farms for inspiration.|
|long lost brothers. heeding the karmic clan's call of the farm !|
|ahhh, sweet sweet cattail hollow.|
|it's been decided: we're the three most awkward humans, reunited.|
|the rebel alliance is strong at the farm. (jk. i can't even pretend to know what star wars affiliation this mask represents, but teddy will tell you.)|
|progress and work/progress and work. feelin' a little behind but always excited of what we're capable of together! i feel so obnoxious with my enthusiastic punctuation!!|
|feelin' saucy on the broad fork, a most beloved tool >--- see exclamation point.|
|some of the best days of my life have been lived here: i know what it's like to hunt a wild dream and call it forth.|
|the skies brought moisture and we marveled at it all.|
|we need a lot of wandering time.|
|holding golden, my newest nephew, for the first time. xoxo|
|dad's happy. we're happy. :) :) can't wait to see everyone again.|
|selfie during a group photo, how else can i get a shot with the newest sweetest couple?|
|the contents of my 7 year old's backpack.|
date of marriage?
date of separation?
the pen spat in scratching strokes my cramped name.
remember that time i signed teddy away for adoption?
|tyler gave me a friend's coupon book. i think this is the first one i'll use.|
"isn't there anything i can just sign so we're done?"
tyler and i laugh with sad eyes. this is easily that hardest thing we've ever experienced together.
"no, not "i-e", it's "d-o-l-l-Y."
"oh, hehe, well, if you're going to get sued we better spell your name right!"
i start crying.
oh goddess i can't stop laughing.
we will not be making lists of furnishings.
or expensive appliances.
we'll do this ourselves.
DIY DIY DIY DIY.
this is a hurt that empties the air from my lungs.
|waiting together for linky's first day.|
