“We were together. I forget the rest.”


Hello friends! I’ve missed you all. Here in Seattle, the sun has been shining for the past few days, and I’ve got Spring and beautiful things on my mind. Such as…

Celine’s Joan Didion- inspired campaign. Joan forever.


As my long-time readers will know, my most cherished possession is the ring John gave me. Now Nora Kogan has a new addition to covet. Je T’aime. Exactly.


I stumbled across this the other day, and as soon as I laid eyes on it, I coveted it madly… but cringed as I clicked over to the site, sure it was way out of my price range. Happily, no. It can be yours (and mine!) for 16 dollars. Done and done.


I love everything about this look from Closet Visit. Tailored top paired with full skirt, oversized clutch, and the color palette.


Words I never thought I’d say: I am loving this wood paneling. How cozy (but cool!) is this room?


This darling little corner of a very chic nursery. I love the sweet, traditional wallpaper paired with the casual hot pink print. And stripes. Always stripes.

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
