We were featured on A Practical Wedding! Click here to see more photos and read about the technical aspects of planning an overseas party. Around this time last August, G and I drove across most of the Croatian coast during our honeymoon, starting in Peroij and island-hopping our way to Zadar, from where we took the coastal route to Dubrovnik. Rewind a few more months to our wedding: a private ceremony at the Ljubljana Castle in January of last year. No friends …

Photo Flurry 143: Dalmatian Holiday

I’m in Ljubljana again, tucked into the corner of an oversize couch next to an oversize Maine Coon. Full of my favorite coffee from Zlati Dukat, messy braid and huge Plitvice Lakes hoodie while three weeks’ worth of laundry are washing upstairs.

Photo Flurry 063 – Love

And now, to celebrating the finer things in life. Another favorable aspect of my Denver journey: hangin’ with these love-beasts. Introducing Filya, the eternal Labrador puppy intent on showering the world with adoration and saliva, and Kuzya, the deceptively lithe three-legged cat who insisted on sleeping directly on top of me the entirety of my stay. FEEL IT.
