“We were together. I forget the rest.”


hi! i know i have been hither and dither, all over the place with this blog lately, but i thought i’d just jump back in with some lovely things… ok?

i am seriously obsessed with this dress. first came the ad campaign, which i could not get out of my head. so fresh! so full of energy! and then i had to go poking around the interweb, to find this green and white dress. and, well, no surprise there. it costs more than my rent and won’t be gracing my closet anytime soon, but still. i obsess. {and – while looking at a little peek into joslyn’s new office, i see i’m in good company!}


i want this painting by michael hainey in my house. that is all. i would stare at it all the time. that would be inspiring, right?

Note to Self
Oil on canvas
28″ x 22″


i love shandies. do you? if you haven’t had one, you must. they are so summery and light and perfect… this more grown-up version might become a warm weather staple around here….


isn’t this the best idea?? it just kills me. i must do it. now, i just have to have a really killer getaway car at our wedding ;)


this bathroom is my dream. a little farmhouse, a little nautical, it perfectly blends mine and the Gent’s styles. shouldn’t be too hard to replicate right??


this print makes me teary. i love it so. it’s from the etsy shop beauchamping, and for the record, i adore their print ‘food’, equally. i think our house is aching for it. {and for the record, my family is me, the Gent, and our sweet, sweet doggy :)}.


and this? well. this just makes me happier than anything in a long time!

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
