Merry Christmas, all. It's been snowing here. There is great misery in all the land.

My best friend Corey is coming into town today for a wedding. I haven't seen her in two years. She and her husband Michael will be staying with me tonight. I had to stay up late cleaning last night because somehow my apartment has not cleaned itself for the last three months.


And now, your pictures and distractions.

I found this at Bob and Cathie's house. I have no words. 

At a masquerade party with my friend Mallory.

There was a photo booth. And we practiced for 20 minutes before going in. And this is all we came up with.

Texts from Krishelle yesterday.
