Rally time.

Now that the primaries are approaching in NC and the Democratic Presidential race is getting tight, we have been receiving visits from the candidates. I had the opportunity to attend my first major political rally last night and although I had to endure 6 hours of standing, I got some unforgettable shots of Senator Barack Obama.

Merlefest

I am headed back to my hometown this weekend for a little festival we call "Merlefest." It is going to be a little more exciting this year because this is where we are having our wedding in the fall. (Oh and I can't forget my favorite bluegrass band "The Avett Brothers" are playing tonight...so excited!!) I am having an unplugged weekend so I look forward to seeing you next week :)

Poof

Here are a few lovely photos from Anne Kristoff which can be found in her etsy store. I am a sucker for tutu's and couldn't help but share these dreamy costume photos.

House-Lust

Well, Whitney is still nursing sore wrists and has asked me - "the fiance" - to take over the blog for a day. I'm taking over the BLOG!! Maybe I'll change the name to Darling Dustin...the current blog title makes it seem as though our dog Dexter is higher on the totem pole than me...I guess maybe he is.

Anyways, I just finished a good read called House: A Memoir by Michael Ruhlman. The book is about the renovation of a 100 year old home by the author in his hometown of Cleveland. More importantly, its about the meaning of a home, belonging, and togetherness in this modern world. So lately, I have had a little house-lust...dreaming of bungalows and cold lemonade on a big front porch in the summer....

Flickr Group: Good Paper Goods

I have been in a paper mood lately considering the amount of invitations I have been creating for family and friends. So...this week I drew inspiration from the Flickr group "Good Paper Goods."

Sunday Afternoon: Amelie

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than by breaking out "Amelie" and relaxing on the couch. I love this movie, the color is so rich and the plot is darling. If you are one of the last few people on Earth who have yet to see it, I recommend you drop what you are doing right now and go out and rent it..or put it on your netflix cue :)

Spring Polaroids

If you haven't noticed yet, I have been posting at a bare minimum this week. My graphic design day-job has caused my wrist to ache (eek!) so I have been trying to minimize any extra computer activity. But, I thought I would share with you a few spring polaroids I took outside last week while the weather was pleasant...we're up to 78 degrees today in NC, so there may be more where that came from :-)
