Mornings at Port City Java, when things felt so new. Afternoons at Port City Java, when I ate chocolate chip muffins, burrowed into a fuzzy, cream colored scarf and tried to write a business plan. Travels to & from Shreveport. A cataloguing of the weddings of my friends, and then, our wedding. 
These things are all the moving parts of the things that I hold most dear: my relationships. 
So, I guess it's not really a funny thing at all, l…
