This summer has offered the rare opportunity to disengage from my habits and routines in just about every way possible. A more brutally honest way of putting that is to say that this has been one of the most trying seasons in memory, but I suspect those less positive feelings are impacted more by my personality than by the actual facts of my life.
A photo from one of the highlights of summer: my dearest dear friend Alyssa's wedding at the Botanic Gardens in Denver this June*
and another photo of me and Dave three(?) years ago at the blue house where we used to live, getting fake married for my friends' wedding photography business cards**. We ourselves are getting married in three short weeks! Sort of hard to wrap one's head around. I love him a lot.
Anyone following or looking for Ay Marieke Jewelry here, obviously you've read past the top banner with the links, so you know where to look if you're interested in that. I'll be postponing my fall collection by a month or two in order to concentrate on being newly married and dealing with some other behind the scenes stuff, but it will be out – likely in October, just in time for the holidays!
