I just wanted to say hello, since my time with you has been limited as of lately and I know it will only be more sparse from here on out. At least for a little bit. I thought you would like to know that I watch you everyday from my desk and dream of basking in your rays. I do, however, appreciate that you have left the heat behind for now. I still think you are really pretty, especially shining through the colorful leaves of fall. I love the time we spend together early in the mornings, and look forward to our time on the weekends. I know that you are spending some much needed time in the southern hemisphere right now, and I am sure they are grateful for your time there. Saturday is right around the corner, and I promise to spend some quality time with you.
P.S. I've included a picture with the
two of us in case you
forgot what I look like.

I had a great weekend with no agenda, which is always nice. I spent Saturday running a few errands, and I decided to actually do one of the projects I've been dreaming about. So I busted out the sewing machine (which needed some MAJOR dusting off) and got to work. I got the idea from the blog Ruffles and Things, she did a t-shirt for her daughter and I thought it was too cute to not do one for myself. A lot of her ideas of J. Crew inspired which I LOVE LOVE LOVE. But their shirts can be a little pricey at times. So I did this one for $10!! All I needed was the shirt. I was going to attatch the pearls to the shirt as well, but I loved them too much to limit them to one shirt :)

This is pretty embarassing. But I also think its pretty hilarious. My friends always get on me about singing to songs that I don't know the lyrics to. I thought I pulled it off quite well. Apparently I'm wrong.
I'm off to brush up on my kareoke skills. God. Bless. You.

(The temple where the ceremony took place)
The first ceremony was the Indian ceremony, taking place at a temple in Sacramento. Anne and I were very excited for this first part, because it was a glimpse into a different culture that we otherwise would not have had. The invitation stated 9 am as the time the first wedding would begin. So I arrived at 9:15 figuring they may be running a few minutes behind. Well I was wrong, they weren't running 10 or 15 minutes behind, they were running 2 hours behind. This is when were told about I.S.T. Indian Standard Time. Apparently the times on the invitations are merely suggestions to them, and they show up whenever they feel like it, even if the event is waiting on them.
So while we waited we made some small talk with some of my relatives and killed some time in the parking lot. Soon the groom and his family arrived. He looked like a prince! After the bridal party was on their way we were aloud to head towards the temple, it is customary to wait for the groom's family procession first.
Once we got into the foyer of the temple we removed our shoes and covered our heads with scarves. For seating inside the actual temple we sat on the ground with men on the left side of the room and the women on the right. Just a note if you ever find yourself in a Sikh temple and you are sitting on the ground, do not put your feet in front of you. Apparently its a huge sign of disrespect for your feet to pointing towards the prayer book. Trust me. I know. Once the ceremony began it was interesting. Everything was sung in a different language, that I think was Punjabi. They translated on big projection screens. My cousin looked as much like a princess as Jaz looked like a prince. Despite the cultural and belief differences, I was very honored to be able to expierence that. I gained some knowlege on Islam and their culture.

This was Monday during the storms. I was amazed at how low the clouds looked
This is by far my favorite view this week, it was on Wed. after the storm was clearing.
This weekend I am attending my cousins wedding. It should be beautiful.
Count Your Blessings.
