Ok! My guilt over letting this blog languish for so long has finally overridden my inertia about doing anything about it. I am for real, for sure, for honest-to-goodness-reals updating everything I’ve been neglecting to update since May. All those outfits I took to France? Stay tuned! Costume College recap? Comin’ atcha! Gatsby photos? Prepare yourself! Much Ado About Sebastapol Faire? RIGHT HERE.
But first, I should probably get this out of the way:
Yes, the costumer is engaged to the cordwainer.
Given the fact that these photos were taken at Lang’s in SF, it should go without saying that this was not a surprise for me. It actually was a decision reached by committee, with Kendra, on the drive down to Costume College last month. Yeah, because that’s how we roll. ;)
The ring is a mid-century design that I had picked out some weeks before. Of course once we were at Lang’s I had to try on all the rings, including the early 20th c. Tiffany diamond ring that fit like a glove and cost 1/4 of what our house cost. But in the end, the little emerald cut diamond set in a simple platinum band with two little baguette diamonds on either side won out. Also, because Francis wouldn’t let me sell his spleen for the Tiffany. Ah well.
And since I’ve had a few people ask, there’s no immediate plans for nuptials. We’re not in any big hurry. We already have the house, the cat, the medical plan domestic partnership, so it’s just a fun excuse to throw a party that we’ll get around to eventually.
So, with that out of the way… BRING ON THE COSTUMES!
