270: I’ll start with la tarte alsacienne

My birthday. His birthday. Les Faux Bourgeois. (iPhone 4 - September 27th)


2011: Photos every single day here and at


269: Happy Australian birthday, my darling.

Not my finest wrapping job. (iPhone 4 - September 26th)

His birthday in T-minus one hour. 🙂

Tomorrow night is a joint birthday dinner for just the two of us, as I was in Japan for the big 3-0.  Still wishing I had something to celebrate entering into adulthood.  Wondering if it is cheesy to host one’s own 30th + one month birthday party….

Another day, another photo. Andrea Woo too.


268: When the flowers die, your birthday is over

September 26, 2011

A nice surprise after returning from Japan. Alas, flowers do not last. (iPhone 4 - September 25th)

This photo throwdown with Andrea Woo just never ends.


251: Domo Arigato

Leaving on a jet plane. (iPhone 4 - Sept. 8)

Tomorrow I leave for Japan. I’m there for 10 days. I’ve never been to Asia before.

I can’t tell if I’m excited or nervous right now, I figure the two are canceling each other out, leaving me in a slightly catatonic state. I also move two days after returning, so there’s no room for relaxation.

I’m sure Japan will be an adventure, and one I’ll remember fondly for years.  I’m sure I’ll feel the ground move, just a little (or maybe a lot). I’m sure I will eat a lot and I won’t exactly know what they are.

I turn 30 in Kyoto.

I didn’t finish everything I said I would by 30, but in many respects, I’m in a great place. I can’t wait to see where I’ll be, or where I’ll be going, at 31.

The photo throwdown with Andrea Woo returns September 20th. But I can assure you, pictures will be taken every day I’m gone.
