This weekend C and I celebrated our cotton anniversary-- 2 years. How exciting! We spent the weekend in South Haven, MI, and it was absolutely lovely. I'd never been there before, but it did not disappoint! Here's our weekend (in a picture-heavy post):

Well, I followed through on my word and went on a nearly-10-mile run on Saturday morning. When you average 16 minutes per mile, going 10 miles takes a serious chunk of time. When you have that amount of time, the mind tends to wander a bit. This wandering led to an epiphany of sorts for me.

gluttony and sloth

Ok, am I the only one who loves the movie Se7en?

Anyway, I'm feeling like John Doe should be coming out of the shadows any moment to get me, because I have been sinning like crazy this past week.

one month

One month from today, my baby sister is graduating from college. This blows my mind, as she was just entering middle school when I moved out of my parents' house. She's got a fancy pants job in NYC, and I couldn't be prouder of the old lady she's turned into. (Even if she is moving far, far away from me.) She'll always be my baby sister though :)

Congrats soeur. You're my favorite person in all the land. <3
