    I love this photo! I ended up sharing it with everyone at the office, it brought great topics of conversation in the middle of our very busy day. Thank you

    you are kidding, this is a horrible picture, pointless

    dj: the photo isn’t meant to be a work of art. it acts as a reminder to myself to stay youthful and playful. as such, it serves its purpose just fine.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
