Our New Apartment!

Here's our new Palo Alto apartment. Haven't taken any pictures of the unit from outside yet...but the landscaping is still being done so that will come later. So far we really like it here and may consider extending our rent for the whole year. We miss you all TERRIBLY and can't wait for everyone to come visit us here. We send our love from Californina!

Almost time!

Graduation is only 9 days away. I have finished my classes and will be turning in my final paper tomorrow. That means one more presentation next week and then I'M DONE! Can't believe how quickly the three years have gone by. But, I can't wait to get home for the summer and have a beautiful wedding!

P.S. Can you find me in the photo?

Genny and Mark's Wedding!

This past weekend Darin and I traveled up to Bismarck, ND for my friends Genny and Mark's wedding. It was a chilly 45 degrees when we landed and it snowed during the ceremony. SNOW! In September! Despite the cold, we had a great time. The wedding was beautiful and, yes, I cried. Genny's family was incredibly welcoming and definitely know how to throw a party, or I should say parties. After the wedding on Friday night, her family threw a "One Day Anniversary" party in one of the Cashman Nursery greenhouses. It was a great vacation and we hope to see the two of them again soon!

Our new puppy!

Meet Henry! We adopted him from the Animal Protection Society on Tuesday. We don't know about his history, only that he was abandoned and that he is some sort of shepherd mix. They think he's about 4-5 months old and will be much smaller than a shepherd. So far, he has been a dream. He's a little timid and still doesn't understand stairs or leashes. He doesn't bark or whine and sleeps through the night. Amazing! He keeps Darin company while I'm in class during the day. He's such a cutie and we love him already.

I'll take that. Thanks.

My wedding dress.


This past weekend Darin and I drove up to Washington, DC so that Darin could attend the American Political Science Association annual meeting. While he was in meetings I explored a little of DC saw this beauty at the National Museum of American History. It's Michelle Obama's Inaugural gown. The First Ladies Exhibit was clearly where I spent most of my time in the museum. However I did also check out Julia Child's kitchen at the same museum (see below).

Bon Appetit!
