Some things I hope to do better in 2012: have friends over to dinner more often; make animations just for the fun of it; make our tiny apartment more livable through organization; pickle more stuff; start writing again; learn how to use my camera better; take a canoe trip through the boundary waters in Minnesota; shoot a rifle at some clay pigeons, later, maybe grouse, in which case, learn to field dress a grouse; bike more.
After a whirlwind weekend of pies, dancing, cabins, a cappella Beach Boys, lemonade, and a big old barn, I am officially married to my best friend! I am still floating.

I’ve decided to start a blog here at Mjenemark.com. This will be a place to store projects in progress, lists (how I love lists), inspiration, interesting things I’ve accumulated, and anything else! Who knows! The internets are my oyster in which to place visual pearls! One can be sure to expect insects, globes, animal bones, brass, dark wood, stereoscope cards, antlers, tin types, anatomy, taxidermy, oh, all kinds of antiquated and natural history fun. Welcome to my little spot.
