The Big Parade

Today I had one of those surreal experiences that typically only happens in dreams or movies. I was walking my dogs down Mass Ave, glancing to the side to catch the tail end of two street performers juggling fire and all of a sudden I found myself in the middle of a parade! It wasn't a real parade exactly, it was a radical-indie-punk marching band decked out from head to heel in green and black and sequence heading back to their giant green veggie-fueled bus. As we (Me, my dogs and 30-odd traveling musicians) waited for the crossing signal, the band started to play something between a funeral dirge and a zydeco melody.

For the next block and a half I walked between a trumpet and and a trombone and thought about how much fun it would be to have an orchestra follow me everywhere. The whole encounter kind of felt like the scene from the movie Enchanted when Giselle and Robert are in the park and everyone joins in singing. Only it was these people...

Very Surreal.

The Two Best

Yesterday Bryce and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary, and in commemoration of the two best years of my life I am finally starting a blog. I suppose it's about time.

The Two Best Friends
On August 11th, 2006, Bryce and I got married in the Spokane, Washington Temple. Everyday is better than the last and we love being married!

The Two Best Years
We spent the last two years in Provo finishing school at BYU. In April we both graduated, Bryce in Biology and me in Elementary Education after completing a one year teaching internship.

The Two Best Little Houses
In Provo we lived in a tiny basement apartment, which we loved for its cozy dilapidation. Now we live in an adorable historic cottage in Indianapolis. It is definitely an upgrade from where we were.

The Two Best Dogs
Six months ago we felt it was time to welcome an addition to our family. Hazel, our chocolate lab puppy came home with us. A few months after that we realized she needed a playmate, so Buster, the poodle/Lhasa Asa came to stay. They are the sweetest companions and they have made our life so much fun.

We will see how well blogging works out for me! In the mean time, thanks for reading and enjoy!
