snaptember 1

carpetofstars said something on Facebook about Snaptember, and while I have absolutely no recollection of this happening last year, I told her I'd try to do a thing this year. (I also told her I'd try to post photos that weren't of my food, but since we just started a blog and we're doing Vegan MoFo, I will have a lot of food pictures). And I'm still recovering from surgery (had my gallbladder out a week and a half ago), so I'm not really doing a lot of things right now? But I'll do my best. And I won't promise there will be zero food pictures.

But here's a picture I just took, and it's not of food, but it is gigantic!

This is a box filled with hundreds and hundreds of hearts cut out of an old, (unsalvageably) destroyed copy of Francesca Lia Block's "Dangerous Angels". We're using them in our upcoming wedding, which we never intended to give a theme but somehow ended up being the wedding of books & sugar anyway. (Yes, that's right, LJ, it's been so long since I LJed that I got divorced and am now getting married again, to a fine and amazing man.) I have dearly, intensely loved the Weetzie Bat books for decades, so I'm very pleased and emotional about having these heart-words all over our wedding (and about a million other things, too - I'm so happy, y'all).
