Sam is all grown up. He doesn't need his aunt anymore! I went to see him in Richmond yesterday with Katie, Paul, and my parents. He picked the restaurant- an awesome French spot called Can-Can. The food was so good! And really French. :p I had Steak Frites, and cream puffs for dessert. Yum! It's a real hot spot in the area, I've heard. And well deserved- I'd love to go back (I want to try their Nutella crepes next!). I'm so glad Sam is at VCU- Richmond has some interesting neighborhoods. The area near his dorm (Carytown) reminds me a bit of Bardstown Road in Louisville, and old town in Fort Collins.

Giada continues to grow and become a well behaved dog. Katie took her along to a coffee shop (that allows pets), and everyone just loved her! She didn't bark at people or jump on them. What a girl. She's so happy to be out of the Cone of Shame!

I think I've finally got the hang of soldering jewelry- here are my two latest projects:

I'm having so much fun making collages with old photos, clip art, and scrapbooking papers. I'm going to have to add scrapbooking to my hobbies!

Oh my word, I was in the same neighborhood as you yesterday! My boyfriend and I were in Richmond for the evening, and we walked around Carytown (cool little neighborhood, that), and we went right by Can-Can!

Lol. Small world. Another person on my f-list has a sister at VCU, so I'll probably run into her at some point!

Awww...sounds like he does still need his aunt. He wouldn't have picked such a good restaurant if he didn't want to impress you!

He did that more because his mom and dad were paying. :p

I'm sure you don't grow out of aunts
