“We were together. I forget the rest.”

happy monday…err, tuesday.

hi there!  i hope everyone had a lovely weekend. please excuse my long-ish absence… it’s been a bit hectic around here getting settled into  the new job and looking after a sick boyfriend. we had a quiet weekend with lots of SUN and then spent sunday watching my team lose the super bowl… but had some delicious homemade micheladas, so that kinda made up for it :)

i am working on a valentine’s day gift guide, but for now, here’s a few bits to tide you over!

made in england in the 17th century ‘Two hands, one heart, Till death us part.’ … possible tattoo idea, or to be inscribed inside our wedding bands…

i am CRAZY about this print. obviously it would make a perfect valentine’s gift, but i’ll take it any time of year :)

there is nothing about this space i don’t love. airy, warm, personal, but not at all cluttered… sigh.

if you are in the LA area, you MUST check out my dear friend’s max’s new restaurant, abigaile. he is the executive chef, formerly of wood tavern in oakland. they are just opening and i would go if i could! tell him i sent you.

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
