“We were together. I forget the rest.”

{feeling domestic}

here’s a few things i’ve come across on the webs that are inspiring me to cozy up our house. and maybe even cook a romantic dinner.

some lovelies from terrain.

tri-color tablecloth


bonnie’s black and blue jam




polka dot bath towel


honeycomb hand towel


weck juice jars




an illustrated guide to cocktails. hand drawn, with a fox on the cover. done!




a romantic dinner for two, seen here, via kinfolk.

Here’s a quiet 1st year anniversary dinner at home. Apparently it started with a bottle of champagne and ended with a neighborhood power outage that went unnoticed thanks to candle-light and an iPod. Both the champagne and fabric streamers were saved from their wedding.

Pretty darn sweet.

Preschool teacher, writer, trouble maker.

LIVES: Seattle. By way of Santa Fe, San Francisco, and NYC.
DAYDREAMS:Strong coffee. Gourmet magazine. Stinky cheese. Date night with new strappy heels. Green chile. Going back to India. Unabashed displays of love. Vegetable gardens. Clean sheets. Unruly stacks of books. Breaking Bad marathons. Writing like Joan Didion ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Joseph Stroud. Cookbooks. French 75s. Sequins with jeans. Leaving love notes.
BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
