Hello, hello. Let's skip the formalities and discuss how excited I am about these photos. A couple of months ago, I met Lory at a birthday party for my best friend's boyfriend. We hit it off and followed each other on Instagram, as one does upon making a new friend. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I noticed a post Lory put up asking for models to take photos of with her new camera. Despite the fact that I had only met her once, I went out on a limb and asked if she'd be interested in taking some fashion-y pictures. Fortunately for me, Lory is awesome and was just excited as I was to work together. We had such a great time taking this set and a couple of others at a beautiful park, that we're going to make it a regular thing. So far she's been the only one to be able to capture the lovely color of this Ruche dress, which is pretty amazing if you ask me. (Side note: let's talk about how wonderful it is to have Ruche back. Thank the shopping gods.)
I spent the weekend in San Diego with Jon, which was perfect. It was Comic-Con weekend, but we pretty much spent most of it away from the convention center, snacking at the farmer's market, and marathoning movies. We did plan one SDCC-related event, which was attending a live taping of The Nerdist, one of my favorite podcasts. Seeing Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, and Matt Mira riff together in person would have been enough for me, but it was surreal seeing Joel Hodgson (of Mystery Science Theater 3000) and the king himself, Bruce Campbell. It was totally worth the accident of planning a relaxing vacation during San Diego's craziest weekend of the year.
