“We were together. I forget the rest.”


so, inspired by joslyn , i have been thinking on the topic of boldness. i too have the post holidays restlessness. especially with the weather here in seattle. the Gent and i have been talking {actually for a while now} about having a secret wedding…but two things…one, i would have just blown that secret, and two, neither of us can KEEP a secret. so there goes that. {plus, i just have to wear a wedding dress with pockets ;)}. we have also discussed getting small, matching tattoos… but we can’t decide what to get. {i’ll keep you posted}. so what to do? how to battle this blah? so far all i’ve got is… buy a slow cooker, make some spicy brisket, and have a brisket taco and margarita party to combat the gloom. crazy, i know. i’m open to ideas, ladies!

in the meantime. here’s some things i’m loving…

these cute rings… two stacking j’s please :)

these painted antlers {again, joslyn}. so gorgeous. getting some and painting them for definitely qualify as bold for me! and would speak to my “i grew up in both texas and santa fe-ness”.

speaking of weddings, this one is just too cool for school. i love the ribbon curtain, {perfect color palette}, but what really gets me is the lite-brite {did you have one as a kid? i did!} name display. like i said, way too cool.

i can’t get this girl out of my head. so classic, so perfect. i want to be her please!

love this photo, and love the nails. hot pink? yep. that would qualify as bold for me. perhaps…

and speaking of bold, how about some rdj to wrap this up? love this.

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
