Lauren + Matt

Lauren & Matt are getting married this summer and I just might be as excited about it as they are.


A modern fairytale.

Just before the sun rose and scared all the fog away.

An incomplete story about Jeans.

People often ask how we came up with the name “Jeans.” And I wish I could remember.

The thing is.  Husbo and I make up new words, catchphrases and nicknames daily.  It’s like we’ve created our own secret language.  Made up with inside jokes, riffs on said inside jokes, followed with riffs on said riffs.

So trying to discover the origins of “Jeans” would be like trying to find which tendril of a root is responsible for a very specific leaf.  On a big tree.

We think it started back in 2004, with: “How funny would it be to have a dog named ‘Dug?'”  Back when we didn’t even want a dog.  We just wanted the fun of coming up with funny dog names.


We brought Jeans home on June 30th, 2010.  Just a coupla’ weeks after we’d found her.


These photos were taken February 23rd, 2010.


Anyway.  Obviously we were crazy wannabe dog parents back then.

But now that we have Jeans, we’re just crazy dog parents.


A little levity.

Any guesses at which month in the archive I was perusing through on a night when I should’ve been sleeping??

The night is dark.
