Jay and I spent last week lounging on the shores of lake champlain with some old friends and some new ones. It was just plain awesome! Highlights include: outdoor fires pretty much every night, amazing sunsets, great meals with great people, board game craziness, lakeside reading, llamas, an impromptu beer and cheese tasting, a visit to a local winery, Isabel's first canoe trip, white wine spritzers (Jay's new fave), swimming in the freezing cold lake, photo shoot with Felix and I in matching outfits, discovering cha-cha, and trying to play trivial pursuit with the first set of cards ever made (impossible!!). Hope to do it again next year. Better yet, we are saving up so that some day, we can own our own piece of paradise on the lake. Thanks Cleary and Amanda for organizing the trip! Enjoy the slideshow but, be forewarned that there are lots of shots of sunsets.

Niki & Tim

Niki and Tim rolled into town this week for a wedding and I had not seen them since we left Denmark seven years ago. It was great to show them a bit of VT and catch up. Niki also thought Isabel looked great in her scarf.

Surpise 30th

The Donadio's were able to keep it a secret and Christine was certainly surprised as she walked into a room filled with friends and family to celebrate her 30th birthday. We had a blast seeing everyone and celebrating, well worth the trip down. Happy Birthday Chris!

_ of 1500: The Higher Ground and JDK book

"_ of 1500" is a 112 page book that documents the show posters created by JDK for Higher Ground. This was the final project I worked at while at JDK and it is the piece I am most proud of. I was the account manager on about half of the posters and about 20 were created for Conscious Alliance food drives we ran. The book uses the posters from JDK and photography of Rick Levinson to tell the ten year history of the areas best venue for shows. Order one up today, as the name indicates, there are only 1500, each cover is individually screen-printed and numbered, just like the posters.

Art Hop

The South End Art Hop was last night. We spent most of the night at JDK and Pursuit. It's only been two weeks, but it was nice to be back and see everyone. The show at JDK was a launch for the Higher Ground/ JDK book "_ 0f 1500" a ten year history of Higher Ground through the posters of JDK and photography of Rick Levinson (more on that later). It was also the final show at Pursuit as Seth and Skye are moving to a new space. Walking home we hit a few more shows. The event itself is amazing, you have thousands of people wondering up and down Pine st. enjoying art and partying. Can't wait until next year.
