me and him

mehere's my newest post for weddingbee, because i realize that i'm going to have so many photos of my bridesmaids and so few photos of me since i'm always behind the camera, that most people are going to think i'm jenn. so i'll do some sort of pictoral-introductory post, because it's always nice to get to know the identity behind all the writing. i think i look goofy in this picture, but at least i look nice and approachable. *side note - i had gorgeously long hair for many many years...and last summer i decided to cut it pretty short so that's what i'm dealing with now...


so the mister and i went to pharmacy school together. here's a photo of us at our grad a couple years ago, which is almost like a high school prom, except everyone is in their twenties or thirties and there are no poofy dresses. he bought me a gorgeous little black dress, a la Diane vonFurstenberg, from a local consignment shop. i love all the consignment shops around vancouver - there's a handful in kits, and some really great ones on main street.

there's not a whole lot to say about pharmacy school. other than him and i lived about 2 blocks away from each other for 3 years and didn't know it! he stopped me on the bus one day, and was like - hey you live around here?

after we graduated, we took a trip with a couple friend from our class on a hawaiian cruise. ooh the sun did some nice natural light effects in this photo. him

i'm involved in the indie craft scene, which seattle is great for! here, we're having lunch at The Croc in Seattle before hitting up i heart rummage - an edgy craft-fair type ordeal.


somehow i look super chinese in that photo on the right, but i'm not. i've had friends i've known for over 5 years that come up to me and ask me to translate something from chinese to english, and i'm like.....i'm not chinese! i can maybe do a bit of french, but that's it.

and these are what photos look like without the aid of natural light (ie sunlight):


i'd like to say that i've actually used my lomo supersampler, but i haven't and this is just cutting and pasting in photoshop. so that's me and him in a nutshell. he likes soccer and video games. i like sewing and making jewelry. and art.
