“We were together. I forget the rest.”


hello and happy new year! it’s been awhile, so for that i apologize. one of my resolutions, incidentally, is to be more ah, attentive to my blog. so, something to look forward to :) before i gush about some things out there that have been catching my eye, i need to gush for just a minute about the Gent. you knew that was coming, right? in his infinite Christmas wisdom, he gifted me with *the bag*, that i have been lusting after for ages. it’s even more gorgeous in person, and is hardly ever out of my sight. and, big shout out to the ladies at clare vivier– apparently the bag had been ordered and was taking a very long time to arrive. he contacted them, they immediately replied that it was their error, and sent it overnight  for free. two days before Christmas. so, gorgeous bag, excellent customer service. yay, clare. also, the book i had recently posted about showed up under the tree too. due to the article about it in the new york times, it was no where to be found- he searched high and low, called all the bookstores  across the country that were selling it to no avail, when finally he found a copy on amazon. and it is amazing. so beautiful. if you can get your hands on one, do. so, thanks for letting me gush and onwards to some other lovely things…

this is my favorite outfit. ever. must get. the ultimate high-low. {here}

a new clare bag. now at anthropologie! the color is amazing.

i’ve been looking for some simple, monogrammed, letterpress stationery for some time. this could be it!

how gorgeous is this restaurant? luckily, sitka and spruce is here in seattle. i must get myself there,  soon. {images here}

another signet ring. what can i say? the obsession continues. {here}.

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
