My dear friend Martha is moving next month. I am so sad. She is my walking buddy (which really means she is my talking buddy.) I get really chatty when I'm out walking.

The comic strip we now know as Nancy was originally named Fritzi Ritz and was created by Larry Whittington in 1922. It was all about the exploits of a New York "flapper" and promising movie starlet. In 1925 Ernie Bushmiller was brought in to do the strip. Ernie modeled Fritzi after the women he loved, Abby Bohnet. Five years later, in 1930, Ernie and Abby were married.
The comic strip followed Fritzi Ritz's romantic adventures & the situations she encountered as a free spirited, independant women of the 1920's. After winning a beauty contest, Fritzi worked as an actress in a small studio in New York. Fritzi, being the beautiful women that she was, and still is today, had many suitors and led quite an exciting life. It wasn't until 1933 that Nancy was introduced as Fritzi's orphaned niece.
I like that my Dad had a special name for me. I think I'm going to assume that he was inspired by this comic strip in some way. I don't want to forget the special name my Dad had for me. I'm going to find some way to showcase it in my life.
This is so me. The happy, gracious hostess to the bossy, sassy Kitty who is wondering how much of her expensive shampoo in the pretty bottle is being used. Buffy, does this sound familiar?
Dan likes to cook and grill. I'm pretty lucky that way. I like baking. Oh, Dan also washes dishes. He's my HERO.
We bought this basil plant and pretty purple flowers for our special day.
I think Dan has big plan to use the fresh basil for his pesto when his parents come to visit in May. We can't wait to see them.
Our little garden gnomes kept Daniel company while he was grilling.

I just thought I would post a little note to commemorate our 2 year anniversary. What better way to do that than with a clip from the Flintsones, no? This song has been burned into my mind ever since I first saw this episode when I was a wee little grade schooler. I only wish I could sing it to Kat as enthusiastically as Fred and Barney. I know Kat would love it.
Brian, Kirstin, and Baby Spencer were passing through Mississippi and they stopped by to say "Hello." They are moving (they look good for people who are moving, moving sucks). Dan and Brian were roommates at The University of Utah.

I have big plans to wear a vintage inspired look with this black parasol on the train tracks over here by my house. It kind of looks like the photo below.
I also want to take one like this Bettie photo. I plan to wear one of my vintage scarfs and some red lipstick. I'll button my shirt up though.
I like this photo because she's a girl on the move. I want to have Suzanne take one of me that is similar at the Hattiesburg Train Depot.
