More Scenes from St. Albans

By popular demand, here are a few more scenes from St. Albans. (Tomorrow we’ll talk about South Africa and the Kloof some more. And then I’ll go back even further, to our Australia trip, and then … I have a lot to cover, folks. A lot. This blog NEVER ENDS. It is forever unfinished. It both haunts my dreams and is the reason I wake up in the morning (along with cake).

Cake in Spittlefields.

But I digress.)

We were only in St. Albans for a day, and it rained the entire time. It was the only bad weather we encountered in England on that trip.

 

Normally, I overheat. I blame a slightly defective hypothalamus, which causes hot flashes that would fluster Satan. Rand has found me sitting outside on 30-degree days, with bare feet and clad in a tank top, and said he could see the steam rising off of me. I don’t know if this true, but as I step barefoot onto my deck (outside weather: 42 degrees) and think of how nice the air feels, his recollection becomes entirely plausible.

But on that day in St. Albans, wearing a thin raincoat and soaked shoes, I was cold.

 

It was a nice change for me. Possibly not for everyone else.

 

Actually, you know what?

They didn’t seem to mind so much, either.

  • Okay, I'll admit: I really like how these came out. I need to get more adventurous with glazes, but I'm so digging this shape.
  • A sneak peek at the photoshoot that @hayleyyoungshotme did this morning at @majesticbaytheatres. We're going to be featured in an issue of Seattle Magazine early next year - about Seattle couples. Super excited. Details and more of shots of amazing hair as we get closer to the publication date.
  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
  • Fried anchovies: accomplished.
