life lately

it's been super hectic the last few weeks.
between packing, and moving, and meeting planning, and farewell partying, and after-work-cocktailing,
i haven't found much time to blog.
 that, and i'm just now starting to feel settled and on track to getting back to my old lori self.

there's been no shortage of tears and tiny breakdowns but i'm learning that i can't always been in control
of everything. that's something that isn't quite a new concept to me, but definitely something that i'm starting to embrace. so, apologies for the blog hiatus, but i've been busy mending this little heart of mine with a little bit of soul searching, spending time with friends, and lots and lots of love.

friends that are co-workers makes work feel like hanging out for eight hours

"these days of glory, being alive on this planet with the filth, hatred, violence, and all the unhappiness is tolerable because i believe in you. you're there. walking up every street i don't turn on. behind every door i don't open... you're alive on this dirty rock. maybe you were born today or you're one hundred and twelve years old. you exist."

- my dear, sweet friend, jon dambacher

thank you thursday

...for real friends who wipe my tears when i cry...then remind me there's no reason to cry at all,
impromptu sleepovers,
retail therapy (only because it means cute new clothes in my closet),
solo trips to orange county,
and for that feeling you get when you put all your feelings down on paper.

"i am someone who is looking for love. real love. ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love"

special little soiree

finally! a break in traffic.

last saturday afternoon, we celebrated the first marriage in our little concierge family. our darling friend (and former co-worker) alex and his partner josh celebrated their union amongst friends and family underneath the stars in palm springs.

after an 8 hour work shift, 3 hour drive, and one very expensive hotel-shower later - we arrived just in time to catch the first dance, the open bar, and somehow found a way to sneak off and scarf down burritos in the car (um...yeah. don't ask). all in all, it was worth every minute of the trip. to witness two people pledge their love in front of their friends and family is not only an honor to be a part of - but it fills my heart with endless joy.

mazel-tov alex! we love you!

whatever your views on marriage may be - this is love - and i'll always stand behind that
