I’m no graphic designer but sometimes I get caught up with all the free fonts out there that I virtually doodle for hours. This is what I’ve been doing all morning when I should be working on floor plans.
Dug’s weekend pretty much looked like this while ours looked a little different. The weekend was filled with lunch with long time high school friend that came down from LA, house warming party where we played games and met new people, more new church visits, furniture delivery (so in love with our dresser!) and more friends visiting from Virginia. We really are blessed to have friends in SD before we even moved and can’t wait to hang out with them more … especially since we met someone this weekend who owns 5 bbq grills in their backyard. I mean, come on … instant BFF.
There is a little floral shop in the village that carries the most unique and beautiful flowers. Aaron’s family is also in the flower business and his older sister now runs the flowershop – even when I took my sister in law to this shop she was impressed by the selection and the price! Anyways, I was there a couple of days ago and discovered this beauty. They wrote down the name for me but I can’t seem to find it on the internet anywhere so for now these are mystery flowers. Anyone seen these before? know what they’re called? I like the pale pink color and the way they droop from the weight of the petals.
UPDATE: My sister in law just text me: Pieris Japonica – mystery solved.
It’s been a while since I’ve smothered you with some puppy love … may I?
What’s on your summer reading list? do share! I’m working my way through “The Interestings” … which is a lot more interesting than the title sounds. It follows a group of kids that met at a elite artistic summer camp through their lives and the writing keeps the pages turning! The only problem is finding a good chunk of time to sit down and just read – maybe this afternoon.
We’ve been visiting churches down here in San Diego and haven’t quite found the one we will call home just yet. (although I’m feeling like we might be close) What’s just as important as finding the right church is finding the right food to eat after church. After our church visit this Sunday, we made our way over to a nearby chinese restaurant for dim sum. At least we got the dim-sum-after-church part covered for now.
I told Aaron that we can only eat dim sum at places with dim sum carts and dim sum cart ladies. When I was little, I wanted to be a dim sum cart lady when I grew up. I would push around our side table in the living room pretending to be serving others dim sum. While the ladies made their second round on Sunday, they kept smiling at us and saying “More dim sum?” I leaned over to Aaron and said “They should say ‘dim sum more?'” Aaron responded “Wow, it’s a shame you never got to be a dim sum lady. all this good skill wasted” I know. I know.
