Meet Jessica and Matt, they are super adorable. They are getting married this August in Clarkston, MI and have lots of fun stuff planned for their wedding!
We spent the afternoon wandering around the U of M campus with them, where they both went to school.
Life imitates art.
We wandered over to the UMMA which had this awesome wall that we became mildly obsessed with. I think this is my favorite image from the day, though it’s hard to pick a favorite.
U of M is so beautiful, I always kick myself for not going there. I wanted to take a year off after high school and figure out what I wanted to do as a grown-up. To get my parents and guidance counselor off my back, I applied to one school, and won a full academic scholarship w/o trying. (I still don’t get that one, I didn’t even have to write an essay!) So I ended up at WSU, which well….was pretty ugly back when I went there. I never did figure out what I wanted to do as a grown-up….ended up with more college credit than a grad student and no degree.

Basically it’s a bunch of hills who’s bumps correspond to the sine wave. Seeing as how one of my brief majors was mathematics and I did some algebra/trig student teaching at WSU, I thought this was rad. (And I also pity the dude who has to mow that thing!)
Random West Park Trivia: We book a disproportionate amount of math nerds and marathon/ultra long distance runners. (And I mean math nerds in the absolute BEST sense of the word, because math nerds rule.)
Seeing as I somehow managed to get to the end of this post without stating the obvious, but isn’t Jessica SUPER CUTE? We can’t wait until August!
Hey everyone. Sorry for the long break in blog posts. We went on a bit of a hiatus over the... more
