duvet covers

Do any of you have duvet covers for your bed? We do, and I have to say I was quite proud to be changing all of our linens (inspired by Miriam's post and my realization that we probably don't do it often enough) last Friday afternoon before my husband came home. We finally got around to washing them (and other clothes) today, and just about thirty minutes ago Jonathan dropped off a huge load of laundry from his arms to our bed and said, "fold these," before running out of the room back into "his office," which is really the mudroom. Twenty minutes later, between chatting on Facebook, reading NPR articles, and contemplating eating some of the Harry & David shortbread cookies Ketan left us for Christmas, I figured I might as well fold the stuff. Made my way through the sheets and pillowcases, leaving the duvet cover for last. What I discovered was a huge lump of something in the far corner of the cover. I promptly ran into "his office" and began beating him with said-duvet cover-turned weapon while chanting, "homey don't play dat!" I don't really think he got the joke, since he grew up under a rock, but I was thoroughly satisfied while beating him semi-conscious. ...Yes, I let him give me a few joyous beatings of his own before we finally unearthed the lump -- two damp white tees that needed to be tossed back into the dryer.

Engagement: David & Kara | 30 October 2010

I know I haven't posted any resolutions for the year, but let me tell you, if we are blessed enough to book more photoshoots, it is my personal challenge to have them reviewed/edited/back to customer within 6-weeks. I don't even want to tell you how long it took us to get these to our dear friends, but if you can imagine that we took them in October and are only now posting them... Aye yi yi.

David is a coworker of [my] David and he finally proposed to Kara early summer 2010. She graduated soon after that and accepted an internship in Tampa, Florida, so in a funny way they remind us of our long-distance love story, except the opposite. Kara came up to Columbia for a too-short weekend visit and was awesome enough to meet us before dawn @ the Horseshoe in USC before having to work a game with a kickoff time of noon! They complement one another so well and I cannot wait to see them get married in just a few short months. Here is a preview of some of our favorite shots (yes, it was hard to narrow it down further than this.):

The End!
