to a very dear friend (and soon to be cousin-in-law) and her brand new fiancee. This girl is my daily dose of sassy fun, and her fiancee is one of the best guys I know. Part of me would like to pat myself on the back for introducing them, but honestly, my introduction basically consisted of "Hey, my friend Krysten is cool; you should talk to her." God and their genuine sweetness did the rest.
Wishing them many, many happy and blissful years together!

In other news:
I am still attempting to reclaim my room from the post-apocalyptic appearance of the moved-out. I do have a dresser now. Dad and I braved the dark depths of the storage building and hauled one out into the light. Brush the dust off, and my clothes now have a home other than the closet floor.
Next just comes the task of making this space seem like "mine" again. The obvious way to achieve this goal: twine and pushpins.
I'm not sure what to call this other than a photo clothesline. The tactic worked well in past dorm-rooms. Stringing photographs and postcards to a strand of jute twine allowed me to dodge the wrath of student-housing by avoiding putting tape on their
thinly painted walls. I'm pleased with the results at home too...especially since they cost me only $2.95. I already had the photographs and other items collected; so obviously if someone else did this, there would be printing costs. But I have to say: $2.95 is a good price to pay for decorating the room I'm only going to live in for a month!
