a wedding

This past weekend we got married in La Jolla at the MCASD. Surprise! It was not quite an elopement but it was a very tiny wedding. I made these embroidered hankies for the guests and this one was my favorite.

North Shore

Living in SD is really all about the surfing.  Not so much for me but you know, it's in the culture here.  It takes me back to one of my favorite movies, North Shore.  I'm not so sure it holds up as much now but this montage has some of the best lines and reminds me how Turtle is definitely the best character.

We went to see the velodrome races the other day at Balboa Park and I loved every bit of it.  This entire experience seemed right out of an 80s movie about Southern California (and definitely made me think of this classic).  These races are weekly throughout summer so I will definitely be returning for more.

Madani's work is featured in the Hammer Museum's Made in LA exhibit. I'm hoping to travel up there very soon to see it.

New England

I just made it back from a trip to New Hampshire and Maine to visit family.  New England is a pretty magical place.  My San Diego apartment is from the 1930s and it feels downright ancient but once you walk down a street in New Hampshire and the buildings are two-three hundred years old it puts everything in context. 

We made a quick stop at the Portland Museum of Art which houses a small, yet strong collection.  I loved the Alex Katz pieces, specifically this giant one posted here.

Obvious Child

I fell behind on my movie a week challenge from last year.  Life happened and I moved across the country down to California.  Now that I'm settling in I am hoping to pick up it back up.  Although, it may be more like a movie every now and then.

I just saw Obvious Child and I loved it's candid take on abortion, love, and family relations.  The movie featured several of my favorites (Jenny Slate, Gabby Hoffman, Scout Niblett, Planned Parenthood...the list goes on).  It is a full spectrum view on abortion that I have never seen in a film. Kudos to Gillian Robespierre for getting this material out there and expanding the dialogue.
