snowbirds...part 1.

you may know them as snowbirds...but we know them as dave (lover of beards, plaid and alex) and alex (lover of mexican hot chocolate, new edition (yea i said it)...and dave too.) snowbirds was conceived on route 90 whilst road-tripping across the country. alex's amazing pipes paired with dave's rad acoustic skillz make for some beautiful, minimalistic folk. and they're not bad to look at either. 

just can't get enough? swing by their facebook page and have a look at their blog for more of this adorable duo. without further ado, here are a few pics from our shoot (at princeton) for their ep coming out later this year!

my couster, alex.


for those of you who know me, you know alex isn't really my cousin, she's my sister. we grew up minutes from each other, fought all the time, and as only children, we're the closest thing to sisters we've got. the point: she's heading into surgery today to have the second (and last) tumor removed from her spine...i was wondering if you would keep her in your thoughts today. she's a crazy fighter so i know she's going to be fine, but knowing you guys are sending her positive thoughts makes me feel tons better. that's all! i'll keep you posted as soon as i know what's going on.

we heart old town frederick. and jenn eppoliti.

last weekend we visited jenn -- a friend i met while nursing at the animal hospital what feels like ages ago. frederick's pretty rad and if it wasn't so far from dc we'd live there in a heartbeat. gorgeous historic architecture, comfy coffee shops, irish pubs with live music, tiny vintage shops...and you can pretty much bring your dog wherever you go which is a must for me. when we have a dog. one day.

anyway, jenn just finished her half sleeve so obviously that calls for pictures. and she has some of the cutest animals on the planet...exhibit a:

that's blue.

and here's jenn at cafe nola! (if you haven't been, go. and get the quiche of the day. YUM.)

pink hair = sunshine.

enter: classic electric. how i love tattoos.

hi joe! mmm chinese food.

jenn's apartment....19th century floors, soaring ceilings, CLAW FOOT TUB. the stuff of my dreams.

CHUNK! he's missing his cerebellum (the part of your brain that controls motor function) so he walks a bit funny...but he's amazing. and is obsessed with his momma. look at that face!

that's crackers. the last of the eppoliti clan. he's orange. and awesome.

<3 her tats.

the end.
