Molly, Me, & Sarah, Saint Olaf College alumni in front of a Saint Olaf House we happened to walk by on our recent trip to London
Here is something new for me...a blog. So many things have changed in my life lately that I thought it would be fun to start a blog as a way to let people know what all I have been up to and to remind myself of where I am.

To list the major changes in no particular order:
  • I'm engaged to Nick Austin, a pretty awesome guy who did my laundry for me the other day and even folded it! Wedding is set for August 18 and there's even a website for the occasion:
  • I have a new job working for Carter Smith, a shibori artist who specializes in artwear. It's mostly administrative, but there's fun stuff involved. His website is
  • Friends Fabric Art, ( ) the cool fabric art store that my mom (Ann) and I started 4 years ago is moving from its storefront location in Lowell to the Western Avenue Studios building also in Lowell ( ). It is less than a mile away, but it's still a big deal. Thank goodness for the new dolly, because I really would not be excited about moving our book selection in particular. I love books, but they sure are heavy when you have to move a lot of them around.

In addition to all that I got to go to London with some college friends a few weeks ago. We had a wonderful time. My friends Sarah and Molly did most of the planning which worked out great for me. I'm still working on editing all the digital photos I took. The photo above is from Molly's collection.
