On July 2nd, 2 days before our 3 year anniversary, I married my best friend in a super tiny ceremony on the California coast with our immediate family.
All of our photos were taken by my dear friend Celeste Noche. You should definitely hire her for all your life events!
We met at a dorm holiday party, bonding over hot chocolate and charlie brown’s christmas movie.
Soon we were attending craft fairs, making jewelry out of resistors, and doing linear algebra homework together.
We laughed uncontrollably at the same dumb things, both exaggerated stories on retelling. I can count on her to be as late as I am to everything, and neither of us ever mind.
She’s so amazing; she loves Sherlock Holmes & teaches an amazing class on the chemistry of Sherlock Holmes to high school students.
Even when I moved to Japan, we scheduled Skype sewing dates, where we’d talk and sew, and donated the dolls we made to an orphanage in El Salvador.
She’s been a BFF for 12 years & counting. When she she found out that she got into a grad school in Montreal, we decided to take a celebratory/California farewell BFF Disneyland trip. I’m glad that we got to celebrate our decade+ friendship in Mickey hats.
I’ll miss her terribly but I can’t wait to visit Montreal!
We ventured out into a 109F day to visit Salvation Mountain. It’s a roadside attraction I’d been wanting to see for years, and in person, it was just as strange and bizarre and pretty as I’d imagined.
