june 12th was the 4th annual (we skipped one year) all-holiday holiday party. a fantastic party that my friend nick, with our help, throws every summer – we wear halloween costumes and celebrate the various holidays of the year throughout the night. i think this year was my favorite yet. and part of that is definitely because nick’s girlfriend, sam, and i spent many hours making tissue puff balls and going all out in the decorating.
nick and sam have gone back to seattle now, but luckily i got a couple more hang out nights with him (sam had to go back early for work) before he left again. it made me happy, but also sad – thinking about how so many of my favorite people live so far away. i like these pictures because it reminds me of how magical everything can seem/look when you’re filled to the brim with joy.
