for our 9 year anniversary, i’m surprising hayes with a stay at this historic inn. they only have 25 rooms, with an award winning tavern in the basement- happy hour 3-5! & supposedly the place is haunted, after all, it was built in 1649 and survived the “massacre at oyster river of 1694” during King William’s War, while 5 other nearby homes were burnt to the ground, & 131 inhabitants of the town were either killed or captured. so yeah, I’m excited to stay here! (like maybe it’s a little dated, but just look at that king size bed) & hopefully hayes doesn’t find out about it, i love surprises!
I never knew the road
From which the whole earth didn’t call away,
With wild birds rounding the hill crowns,
Haling out of the heart an old dismay,
Or the shore somewhere pounding its slow code,
Or low-lighted towns
Seeming to tell me, stay.
Lands I have never seen
And shall not see, loves I will not forget
All I have missed, or slighted, or foregone
Call to me now. And weaken me. And yet
I would not walk a road without a scene.
I listen going on,
The richer for regret.
holy shit, this organic gardening class changed my life.
i can’t wait to start planting this weekend. i can’t wait til the farmer’s market so i can make a connection with the local farmers so i never have to buy food from the grocery store again. (that goes for local meat & dairy for hayes) i don’t want to hold myself to that, since i know that’s a feat in itself, but i KNOW it can at least be accomplished over the summer.
& you know how you go through life with a handful of those people that have forever made in impact on you? well, the instructor of this little free class we took at our local library is now one of those people to me.
all of the !!!!
April 17, 2005.
it’s that time of year again: date-aversary!
nine years with this kid, it’s been pretty fun i’d say. looking back at these photos, i like to think we age beautifully like a fine wine. plus it helps if photocait captures you (bottom photo circa 2013)! especially fun to look at my eyebrows, although they were never terrible which i appreciate of my younger self!
honestly, and i know i say this every year, most of the time it feels like we’re still just kids dating, as if nothing has changed since high school; but at the same time, we are such well-rounded adults because of each other that it’s hard to think we were ever those babies in that graduation photo from 2005! <3 i love celebrating our date-aversary more than our wedding anny, because this feat shows us who we’ve grown from and i love that.
Today’s outfit is brought to you by dressing for spring even with a dusting of snow on the ground.
Also, trivia night means beer for dinner.
Which means I’ve been intoxicated since 8pm, off two cans of $2.50 beer. Adulting.
Snowy sunrise this morning, but more importantly, we won 2nd place at trivia tonight! (out of 14 teams) While drinking the cheapest beer. Save $$
We moved to this town for college (although it’s not a college town) & over the years we fell in love with everything it had to offer, & now it’s becoming a “hip” place to live, so everyone our age is flocking to it, including our friends from high school. So it makes me happy to go to trivia night and reconnect with them while simultaneously kicking ass in useless knowledge! We won $15 to use at the bar next week!
i’ve been trying to explain this sketch to people for years
I need to reblog this every time it pops up on my dash.
perfect digital short is perfect.
