“We were together. I forget the rest.”


i love kate spade. as you know if you read this blog. but sometimes, it can be a little…overly twee and just too-too preppy. but this bag…oh, this bag. it is perfectly simple and you can tell it will only look better with time. and the stripes inside! such a sucker, every time.



the colaboration between heath cermamics and alabama chanin is stunning. like everything heath does, simple but such beautiful detail. i want it all, natually, but i’ll start with a few of these dinner plates :)



i’ve been thinking that our house needs a little foilage. i could not have told you the name of this tree for the life of me, but apparently it’s a fiddlehead fig tree. isn’t it beautiful? i need one. {found here}




wellies. bring them on. the Gent bought me a pair of the navy blue Hunters as my “welcome to Seattle” gift, and needless to say i’ve worn them more days than not. entering the rainy season again, i would love to add a few more pairs to my repatoire. this first pair is just screaming at me to buy them- pink stripes up the back? uh, yes.




then there’s the classic ll beans… they look extremely cozy and would go with everything, no? plus, i think the lace-up aspect would make me feel very no-nonesense!




and yes, i know i just said i already have some hunters, but now this black high gloss pair is calling me…. they feel like the LBD version of my navy pair. welcome to seattle, baby :)



i find this kitchen really stunning. the wall colors, the mix of dark and light…but especially those windows. i can just see the rain beating on them while something yummy simmers on the stove. what should i make?

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
