Happy Monday, friends. It's snowing again in Boston, in fact Pedro's home again with another snow day. I think that's 4 in two weeks now. Needless to say, I'm feeling a little blue from being cooped up inside for so long. Plus, I've been battling a cold, which made has made it hard to do anything at all.
Best way to cheer oneself up? A little music, a little dancing, a little vinyasa flowin' (finally, because I can sort of breathe), and a little photographing. I'm feeling a whole lot better now.
Here's a little CURRENTLY post, because I haven't done one of these in awhile, and I've got stuff happening in my life (well, sorta, sometimes)!
Pedro and I are celebrating the one year anniversary of our elopement! It was yesterday, February 8. We are the luckiest couple in the world and got to have two weddings (we eloped on February 8, 2014, and had a big fancy wedding 6 months later on August 9, 2014), so we are going with our "wedding date" as our official wedding anniversary. We're complicated, haha. BUT, I thought we should still acknowledge that we have officially been married for one year. And what a crazy/awesome/scary/fun/ridiculous/fantastic year it's been. So glad I get to be crazy in love with you forever, Mr. Peres.
The above photo is actually from our Junction (our old neighbourhood in Toronto) engagement shoot. I should probably share our engagement shoot + wedding photos at some point, shouldn't I? They were taken by the lovely Lisa Mark + Justin Hines of Lisa Mark Photography. I've known these two since I was a teenager (Justin and I worked at a record store together - and coincidentally, half our bridal party also did), so it was really fun to have them capture all our wedding memories.
I can't get enough of New Order's, Substance. This is nothing new, because I think I first heard the album about 10 years ago, but it hasn't been on my playlist for a little while. Seriously though, I'm hooked and bouncing around from the opening chords of Ceremony (which fun fact, is on the Marie Antoinette soundtrack - it's not the best movie, but it's super pretty and like most Sofia Coppola movies, has a FANTASTIC soundtrack). I probably listen to way too much British post-punk / new-wave / awesomeness, but whatever. It's the best. Now go listen to Blue Monday, or stream the whole album from the video link above. You'll be bopping along before you know it.
Twin Peaks! Oh my god, guys. How have I never seen it before? David Lynch, you are too good. I have a strong urge to start wearing midi skirts and thin knit sweaters (here's lookin' at you, Audrey Horne). I keep trying to guess who killed Laura Palmer / what the hell is going on in that crazy town, but have been wrong every time. Finally! A show that surprises me (even though it came out in 1990)! I love the symbolism, the mountains of donuts, and everyone's obsession with coffee. And that crazy mini David Lynch kid with the creamed corn? So many little details that are just SO GOOD. If you haven't seen it, watch it now! It's on Netflix, and hulu - ready for your viewing pleasure. I'm already on Season 2. I knew snow days were good for something. The best part, Twin Peaks is returning to Showtime with 9 episodes in 2016.
Of California! We are finalizing our plans for our (somewhat delayed) honeymoon! We've decided to take a trip to Venice Beach + Los Angeles in early March, and I AM SO EXCITED. Perhaps Los Angeles is not a typical honeymoon destination, but then again, we aren't exactly the most conventional couple either. I've been longing to visit the west coast for as long as I can remember, and now the dream is finally coming true! Plus, y'know, we get to escape the tail-end of winter, so there's that too ;) West coast here we come!
Peace, love and grooviness,
