Lindsay & Sune

Photobucket

My dear friends Sune and Lindsay were married last weekend in Tilden Park in the hills above Berkeley. Their first date began last winter when, having known each other from working one season at a summer camp in Colorado, they decided to meet up in southeast Asia for some good old exotic-locale travel. They soon realized that, with Sune having spent a year and a half in Antarctica and Lindsay having handled dogs for the Iditarod, they weren't so fit for the hotter climes. So they headed north. Continuing up through China they crossed Russia on the Trans-Siberian railway. This pretty much wins my vote for perfect first date and alludes to the tremendous future they have before them as partners. A glorious weekend was had by all (scroll down to the next post to see images from our post-wedding celebration in the Yosemite Valley).

And, for the first time, I'm going to include a slide show of their wedding day in this post. You'll find that at the bottom.

Only in Alaska



By now, anyone who has followed this blog (if there is anyone out there) knows how much I love my home. Here's another reason why: yesterday morning I skied into a cabin north of Anchorage to have a cup of coffee with some friends who'd rented the cabin and stayed the night. It took me one hour to get from my door (beside downtown Anchorage) to the cabin (no traffic and a mile ski-in) tucked back in the Eagle River valley.

Simone



Following is a shamelessly bulky sequence of images. I can't help it. My cousin's and husband's child is the cutest kid on the planet. It doesn't help that, together, the family is quite photogenic. I present to you Simone in their cute little home near downtown San Francisco last weekend.
