Guess where I’ll be sleeping on Sunday, October 12th? That beautiful boat!! (Dog sadly not included.) For ages I’ve been bananas excited to go to Northern California for a college friend’s wedding, but recently I’ve been worrying about where Matt and I will stay when we leave Healdsburg for a bonus vacation night in San Francisco. That shit is expensive, and it being Columbus Day weekend doesn’t help. So I started poking around on AirBnb, which I’d never used, and as soon as I saw the words “sleeping yacht" I swooned. It’s in Oakland, so not walking distance from the main SF sights like I hoped, but it’s a bigass boat! Matt said "DO IT" and I pretended for like 20 minutes I was still interested in doing the traditional hotel thing before sending the booking request. Now I need another modifier for "excited" because "bananas" isn’t nearly strong enough.

Help!! I’m trying to pick out new author photos (the old ones are OLD) and I’m having a tough time.  Not totally sure why I’m liking the closed-mouth smiles this time around. 
(Shout out to my Uncle John for taking the photos and Shelburne Falls for being our gorgeous backdrop!)  Thoughts? Opinions?
EDIT: For #2, I have a version that’s cropped closer—I just wanted you guys to see how beautiful the view is from the Bridge of Flowers!)

I think #3 or #2 cropped closer (it’s a great view but something about it makes me think you’re about to sell me a timeshare).

Buzzfeed published “A Quick Reminder That Prince Harry Is The Goofy Prince Of Your Dreams” and it’s genius and features this incredible photo with the caption “What a nice day to find my new princess.” BUT I don’t like the implication that I need a reminder because I could never, ever, ever forget that Prince Harry is the goofy prince of my dreams. Never.
