This Friday J and I will celebrate five years of marriage, hence the Ooph logo. I spent some time Sunday looking through our wedding photos and reminiscing about the day we got married. I know I am biased but it was an insanely fun wedding, complete with hay bales, cowboy hats, Budweiser and margarita popsicles to help our guests cope with the hot September afternoon. I have only looked at the photos one other time right after the wedding and then promptly shoved them into a box in hopes of eventually finding the time to arrange them perfectly into a photo album. Yeah right. That’s as likely to happen as me knitting matching Christmas sweaters for all three of my boys. Besides why the box hate? From the beginning.

Your love of your father comes across in your writing. You are a saint and a great daughter to have taken your dad into your home. How wonderful that was for him to know you took care of him to the end. Looking forward to reading more of your writing. Let me know if I can help out in any way.

Thanks so much! I wanted to start writing about my dad when I started blogging -- he lived with my family the last 4 years of his life as he was starting to deal with Alzheimer's. It's been 2 years since his death, and I'm just finally feeling like it's a subject I can touch. So I'm getting there -- thank you for the words of encouragement!

Love your tattoos. I love the story behind each one and your writing is fabulous. I look forward to reading more! Especially about your father. He sounds a lot like mine, except that mine hasn't donated anything to science quite yet and I am not sure with the raging that man has done there will be anyplace to donate but AA studies.

p.s. I tried to post this comment under an oped id on your site, but it wouldn't let me. Very serious when I say your writing is fabulous. Loved it.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
