True Summer and Sarah and Ryan’s Wedding!

Posted on July 16, 2013 by

The last week of June meant the end of our food challenge, nearly the end of work for me, the end of work for Mikey, and totally free summer days!

A life of leisure is something I can get used to, but not something I could do forever. I instantly lose my productivity and self-motivation. Something about having very little time to get shit done in makes you really good at getting shit done. Having nothing but free time makes me wanna do this all day:

The last week of June brought the end of the summer storms, finally. We had week after week of nothing but torrential downpours. It was very brutal.

Having freshly decided to start a band with my roommate Laura, and our friends Grace and Cynthia, Laura let me borrow her guitar and Mikey has been showing me some songs on it.

He’s a very nice resource!

To celebrate the end of our food challenge, we had a house outing for a big, terrible meal.

We all went out for pizza at Pica’s, and then followed it up with a trip to the Franklin Fountain for ice cream sundaes.

We spent a lot of time at home that week finally decorating the living room and making it feel lived in. We had repainted the room a few months back and never put things back on the walls until then!

It felt really great to finally do.

That Saturday we went over to Grace and Mike’s house, the Mitten, for a BBQ.

They have a community garden attached to their house! This is also where Chicago bud, Jen Twigg, will be moving in just a couple weeks!

It was a really nice evening, a break from the relentless storms.

It was pointed out that a tree that had leaves shaped like pot leaves was growing in the Pocket Farm (the community garden). Everyone was being really silly with them when we arrived.

The following morning we got ready for our friend Sarah Rose’s wedding!

I love a good excuse to dress up, and days where I get to celebrate my friends.

Sarah and Ryan got married at the Fleisher Art Memorial. It was intended to be outside but by 11am it was sweltering and threatening rain, so they held it in the gallery.

It was a really lovely and quick ceremony.

Sarah Rose is on the left. She’s a zinemaker and does a lot for the zine community in Philly, including organizing the zine fests and many zine readings. I’ve only met her partner, Ryan (wife! whoa!) a few times, but she seems really great.

This one had to be in color, obviously. A cute little guestbook of sorts, everyone’s thumb prints. Sarah is a professional balloon twister at children’s events.
