My favorite adults

As I'm packing up my belongings to move to the US indefinitely...I came across these little wonders. You know how when you're little you walk around thinking your parents are the coolest people in the world? Well, I could never shake that feeling off. They are still one of my main sources for inspiration and admiration. I'm definitely putting these in my little treasure box to bring "over there".

The coolest couple in Iran in the 70s? On the right corner is a picture of my dad with his old boxing team. He is standing, second from the right (yes, without a shirt on).

I love my moms wedding attire. They are posing for a wedding picture with my grandparents on my moms side. My grandmother wore a mini dress.
Once they were Abbas Badavi and Shahnaz Shekar (which means sugar!), now they are just known as my parents.


Hello, Good Sir

In the lobby of the municipal building this gorgeous portrait stood there to greet me. He's the mayor of something, im sure.

Is that an eagle fixed on a clock?

Unfortunately for Andrew, he wont be able to get the permit till friday.

Andrew's Post Surgery

Alive and well! Andrew made it through a successful ACL reconstruction procedure. It took 1hr30 to patch him back up.....then 4hrs more for him to wake up and leave the OR.
Fully rested, we load him into his car (i had to learn stick-shift that morning) and headed to our friendly neighborhood drugstore. We also had to pick up his much anticipated handicap parking permit.
