“We were together. I forget the rest.”

Loving On A …Friday.

Well, can you forgive a “loving” post on a Friday? The reason it’s today, and not Wednesday, or Thursday, is because what I’m NOT loving this Friday is that I’m sick. Again. Teacher of littles, and all. The type of sicknesses that are usually relegated to the winter amongst adults, aren’t so much with the preschool set. So I’m making homemade broth, drinking fresh ginger tea, and sharing my current loves with you all :)  Have a great weekend, friends! Oh, and if you have any natural remedies for those who are constantly swarmed by germs…. do tell!

Speaking of littles, more ads like this please…creative little girls in jeans and blue sneakers instead of pink sparkly “jeggings”, making, building, ruling the world.


The Donald Judd restoration of 101 Spring Street. My old ‘hood!  I’d love to see this. The exterior of those old SoHo buildings combined with Judd’s (and his friends’) art is very fresh and intriguing. This made me think of you, Joslyn, if you don’t already know about it! Read all about it in Architect Magazine.



This candle! Oh my. The name, the packaging, and it smells of… wait for it…burnt honey and wild-cut field flowers. Late birthday present?


Clare Vivier on The Glow. I love The Glow. I love Clare Vivier beyond reason… (as if you didn’t know). As The Glow says,

Clare Vivier’s namesake line of minimal-chic accessories have gained a fiercely devoted following thanks to her desire to stay true to what women really want—quality, versatility, and a touch of je ne sais quoi.”


Yup. That pretty much sums it up. Read this. She is so lovely, and I am ALL for her approach to raising a boy:

“I stress the importance of being polite, opening doors for women and letting them go first! It sounds outdated, but I think it’s a good lesson to think of others before yourself —why not start with women?”

Just when I couldn’t love her more.

I adore this look. I need this dress. Who makes it?? Anyone?

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
