New Art

I thought I'd take a moment to share the two new pieces of art on our walls.

The first was painted by Curtis' grandmother in 1985 (the year we were born!). She gave it to me when we went to visit her and Curtis' grandfather in August. We were excited to get it framed and add it to our collection. We have two other paintings by her that are just as impressive.

This drawing was made of us in December, 2002. We went to the Irvine Spectrum to see a movie (we were not together yet) and decided to have this done for fun at one of the little stands there. I remember that it took a really long time, but we were happy with how it turned out. Little did we know that it would be hanging in our first home together.

Have a good week :-)

I got a job!

I will be spending the summer of 2010 back in the Bay Area!

I got an offer today to work at my old firm, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, as a summer associate next year! I immediately accepted, and will be working primarily in the Employment Group! I am so excited about being back at Orrick - the people are wonderful and the work is exciting. And I love Silicon Valley, it's a great place to live. Plus it means I get to hang out with people I have truly missed during law school.

I don't have any other details yet - but I'm thrilled to have this opportunity. It is one giant step in the direction of graduating and becoming a practicing lawyer in the Bay Area!

Have a good week :-)
