Dinner with DJ



Tonight we had the amazing privilege of hanging out with our friend and (for those of you who haven't heard) the photographer for our wedding, David Jay in Newport. DJ is just an incredible person and to be around him is to be inspired. We spent hours just talking about life and love with him. He is one of the most down to earth, genuine, generous, and kind people we have ever met. Many of you already know him to be all of these things...but did you also know he's somewhat of a master magician too?! Mary and I had every intention of grabbin' the check the second it arrived...but when it came, there was DJ's card and a receipt. He just smiled and said it's already taken care of. We still have *no* idea how he did it! (DJ, we're already plotting on how we're going to get you back in Chicago!) What an awesome night!

That's a funny story. We have a friend from L.A. that is DJ's age and he knows the same magic trick. They must practice out there.
