Several nights these past two weeks, I’ve had nightmares about taking my laptop near water and ruining it. Fortunately in real/waking life, I am not so dumb. When we went to North Carolina a couple weeks ago for Andy’s cousin’s wedding, Gatsby (my MacBook) stayed safely inside the beach house.

Simone (my camera), however, was forced to take some risks.

Day 2 and Wedding 014

The wedding was beautiful, and appropriately themed:

Day 2 and Wedding 041

And, since the entire back half of our plane had come to North Carolina specifically to golf, we thought maybe we should set aside a couple hours to take advantage of what is apparently some of the best golfing in the country. We had to rent clubs, and I played in my glasses and flip flops, but whatevs. Totally worth it.


Last but not least, I present Andy’s family. Or like, 1/4 of it.


They clean up nice, don’t they?

    Thanks! And yes, lol, Simone. Sally was before that (a Canon). Simone was named long before I knew you were into photography, mister!

    Thanks, Katy! And yes omg, I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not when it was described to me, but it looked SO GOOD on her and especially in person. Totally flattered her body in all the right ways.

    I know several people who name their electronics– don’t understand the trend.

    Love the Outer Banks. Where exactly were you? Thanks for the comment on my story, by the way.

    Not sure if it’s a trend or a mental defect. :P

    I love your photos and now I know where you got that pretty new profile picture ; -)

    I read/saw photos on several blogs this last summer from North Carolina and the Outer Banks. I hope to get there someday.
