We're experiencing some late winter rain in Wisconsin today.  Days like today are especially good for listening to jazz crooners sing sad songs.  Not because they should make you sad, but because they should make you feel peaceful and content to be warmed by their voices.

I feel like my posts have been starting with "Sorry I haven't been around lately.." a bit too much.  I actually am pretty sorry that I haven't been making a huge effort in blogging lately.  When I'm not driving myself crazy with finishing the majority of my wedding planning before June, thinking about moving in April, or writing my dissertation, I'm protesting.

As I'm sure many of you know, and as I've mentioned before, things are pretty real in the mid-west lately, and although many people have moved from sleeping in the capitol after a month to re-call road, I'm still keeping it real with the FORWARD! Marching Band.
I mainly play bass drum, but I'll snare it up on long solidarity march days.  It's alternative activism for sure, and I couldn't be happier to be in a group that uses music to inspire hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites to keep marching on!
And an added bonus; it's become my new favorite form of exercise.  Ha!

Searching for a shoe...

I am searching for a shoe for my wedding.
I am searching for a shoe for my wedding, and I hate shoe shopping.
I am searching for a shoe for my wedding that will say: "I don't always wear sneakers. ;)"
I am searching for a shoe for my wedding that will let me forget that I am usually wearing a cardigan covered in baby boogers and drool.
I am searching for a shoe for my wedding that will help me take my first step into my new life with my new husband.
