calligraphy love

while on break we've been roadtripping. taking advantage of all this sunshine and family togetherness. we stopped in at my parents place. inbetween homemade granola, ed norton movies and building brio trains for benji, we had a half-hour-long conversation about the glories of calligraphy. always, always humoring me. i love that my parents appreciate the handcrafted.

thanks for all the fun. this post's for you.

Our 40th is coming up. Maybe we'll have a re-do just so we can have these cool invites. I like the bottom one the best.
