Saying Goodbye to Derek Shepherd

https://youtu.be/Gi_RCt5wU7o

I actually stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy a very long time ago – like after the second season or something like that. Yet over the years (the show has been running for 10!) I’ve tried to stay in the loop whenever I could. When the first episode aired, I loved it. Finally, a show taking place in Seattle! Actually, it’s a pretty great series and I wish I would’ve continued. When I heard that Derek Shepherd passed away during last week’s episode, I decided that I just had to see the episode. Even though I got lost in the seasons, the relationship between Derek and Meredith was one that resonated closely with me. They had a great romance and in last week’s episode that I watched this evening, I cried puddles. Cross-legged on my living room floor (what? not even my couch, I know) eating my Chicken Noodle Soup from Panera and tears streaming as we said goodbye to Derek (yeah, both Meredith and I!)

This doesn’t make me want to continue the series or anything, but it was classy send-off and I really appreciated ABC for doing it the way that they did.

Food in Pretty Gradients

Foodie photography is something that I never get tired of. There’s so many different things that you can do with it and even over the years, I still feel like I’ve never seen the same thing twice. I really loved this series by Seattle-based photographer Brittany Wright because of the color and the different stages of the food from when it looks its best and when it looks its worse and when you no longer want to eat it!

Bumbershoot 2015 Lineup

Congratulations One Reel! I always seem to get the most excited about Bumbershoot over any other festival lineup and I think it’s just cause I’ve had such strong ties with it and growing up having attended so many years. This is a very exciting lineup though and every year there is such a good mix of mainstream acts along with local acts that are going to have incredible exposure during this weekend. Unfortunately, I won’t be attending for the second year in a row, but if I did, I would not miss Saturday or Monday.

Wedding Mondays

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/110899774]

Hello everyone! Happy Monday morning! I just realized that it has been nearly a month since we’ve had a Wedding Mondays video post, however, I suppose we make up for it in posts about weddings in general. I am thrilled to share with you all a refreshing video this morning though – after all, it has been awhile!

Kyndra and Trevor decided they wanted their wedding to embody these three themes: romantic, whimsical, and dreamy and wow – did they accomplish that. Their beautiful wedding in Texas looks like a boho-dream come true.

These bridesmaids’ dresses all come from Urban Outfitters, Free People, and Etsy! The bride’s dress is Anna Sui for BHLDN.

Enjoy! To view the rest of the feature, you can visit Green Wedding Shoes.

Quadstock 26

I still remember the early days of Yow Yow! and when I was a college student writing posts about Quadstock. Quadstock isn’t one of those things that defines me, but honestly, I wouldnt have minded if it was one of those things. I worked on this festival behind-the-scenes for two years and on my third year, I was running it along with my co-chair. It has been three years since I last did it and even though I’m very far removed from the Seattle University community and this organization, I still feel really proud of how far it has come and I get just as excited about the reveal of the lineup as I do for any other music festival. Beat Connection as a headliner is just downright amazing. They are well-respected within the Seattle music community and they’re going to do a great job of closing out the night. Also when I found out that SEAC was still doing the unveiling party, my heart skipped a beat because I’m so proud and thrilled that something I started is still continuing five years later!
