Stop Censorship Now

Braeden & Cassi

We got married. So that happened.

A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.

Here’s a picture of my wedding bouquet, as per request. My mom made it out of vintage brooches, floral wire, ribbon and the stems of fake flowers. I think she did a WONDERFUL job, don’t you? The best part? It will last forever! We’ve got it displayed right now on top of our China cabinet. I still get compliments on it when people come over.

Anonymous asked: Hi, Cassi - My husband, Joe and I used to work with your dad at WFSB in Hartford, CT. Around the time of your wedding, I came across a photo of the bouquet your mother made for your wedding. It is beautiful! I wanted to show it to a friend whose daughter is getting married. Any chance you can shoot me a photo of it? Wishing all the Eltons well. The last time I spoke with your Dad was your wedding week. He was over the moon, it seemed! Ain't love grand?

It is beautiful! Didn’t my mom do such a great job? I’ll post a photo of it as a blog post right now.

I didn’t find much information about this, but still, interesting new use for bottle caps.

I never want to be away from you again, except at work, in the restroom, or when one of us is at a movie the other does not want to see.

This is Braeden. So anyway.

These are the first examples of four different book types Cassi has taught me to make. Tonight was my first try at the single-needle coptic (the blue one). It was complex, and sorta complicated, but it was also a heck of a lot of fun and I am quite pleased with the outcome.

I just love to make books. And Cassi is the best teacher at bookmaking.

The first photo is from the morning of Braeden’s oral defense of his comp exams. (He passed, no big deal.) And yes, he did bring his Captain America shield/Frisbee with him to his oral defense. You know, for protection.

The second and third photos are of the Captain America shirt I made for him for Easter. He was wearing it at the comic book store the other day and another patron asked him where he got it. When he told him his wife made it the guy was super jealous: as he should be.
