Best Birthday Photo Album Ever

…and it’s not even 11:11 yet! I already have tiara greetings from all over the world from humans, dogs, cats, fish…even piggies! The tiaras are wide-ranging and imaginative, and the only things I love more are the people wearing them. Here’s my birthday twin, author Richard Wright, who is currently in New Delhi and also celebrating a 1-11-11 birthday…

The Princess’s Birthday Eve

I am currently kicking myself. For my birthday, Dad got together an entire collage of the folks he works with at Knight’s Armament, all wearing tiaras. That’s right — crowns, books, and guns galore — and I left the CD on the dining room table. Mom put it in a box with the rest of my presents and it’s…

Sunset 12/27/10

Halloween Pics

Just a few, but fun stuff. I really had a great time with the pumpkins, and I thank FGB for twisting my arm and buying me some at the last minute. (Speaking of arms, carving two-and-a-half pumpkins is QUITE the triceps workout. Ow!) Also, I forget how gorgeous the fall is further north. I’m so glad I came back…

DC Sunset, post-Sanity

While FGB and I did not attend the Rally for Sanity today in DC (despite my hardcore optimism and support for sanity, I’m still not a huge fan of crowds), we did arrive in its aftermath to meet my dearest Leanna Renee Hieber and see some sights. I don’t make it into the city very much — I should…
