mini honeymoon

we still haven't been able to have a honeymoon, but we took a little mini trip this past weekend.  i was working in boston, so patty came out to meet me and we drove to the catskills, ny for the "all tomorrow's parties" show.  such a trip back to the 90's...we saw yo la tengo, dinosaur jr., and my bloody valentine.  we also met up with patty's old band-mate melissa.

the next day, we drove to hudson to visit melissa and see her new house.  and her magic cat.  she and her boyfriend are involved in cat rescue in the area.  hudson was amazing, so beautiful and we loved the architecture and sweet downtown.  then we drove to nyc, had dinner in the lower east side & flew home on tuesday!  such a whirlwind, next time the east coast trip will have to be much longer.  now we have to plan our real honeymoon.

other things happened in august besides the wedding...part deux

we flew up to san francisco for one day to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday ! we had sunday brunch at the beautiful palace hotel.

other things happened in august besides the wedding...

so the entire month of august was not totally consumed by wedding plans, although it felt like it! now that the wedding is over, i'm reviewing the fun stuff that happened in august besides the wedding. for one, patty played drums on 08.08.08 for the 88boadrums event at 8:08pm at the la brea tar pits in los angeles. it was the most amazing, beautiful cacophony i've ever witnessed...88 drummers playing in unison, taking cues from each other in a spiral, which radiated out from a core of 4 drummers. she debuted her 1967 vintage ludwig kit. check out the reviews and photos (with patty!) here. there's also a video here. (you have to scroll down to the 88 boadrum "tape" and click it to play.)

reviewing details

in the heat of the planning (and juggling work--producing TV & producing a wedding simultaneously can be quite a feat!), i missed some great details on the blog.  we had a few project brigade craft days and "cranked out" some fun stuff.  here is the project brigade team working on the napkins rolled with the silverware.

my favorite wedding pic so far

friends have begun to send me photos, which is so fun.  we won't have the photographer's photos for another week or so.  i love this photo because it says so much about me & patty as a couple, laughing.  i couldn't have asked for a better friends helped so was amazing.  my family was wonderful and the day was amazing.  relaxed, joyful, and beautiful.  thank you.  see more photos from friends here.
