Lessons Learned | How not to nap


Yesterday, I didn’t learn to nap.

I tried, but I just didn’t work out well.

I did learn about Lobster though so that’s something.

Happy Fall and happy anniversary to TT and Juju! (* I don’t know what number this is, but thanks for loving each other this long and for loving your four kiddos a lot. I like you both very, very much!)

Celebrating fall this way –>

| Falling asleep to the sound of epic rain | Morning coffee |Open doors | Avocados | Grimes | Reading about Urban Agriculture |

Essentially, I’m just ready for it all.

And for this season of rich colors, cool rain, and sweaters.


+ Watch. A gorgeous film by the talented Mr. Bill Pappas.

+ See. Hitchcock-inspired photos by Nicola Kuperus.

+ Listen. Quitter’s Raga.

empty spaces

oh lazy saturdays where have you been from my life?!

i spent the night with kels and i’m just now getting around to thinking through what i want to accomplish.

i feel rested, content and at peace {amazing, considering it’s exam week!} and now all i crave is a huge mug of tea and some empty space.

+ i’ve got so much love and admiration for this group of empowered women it’s unreal

+ watched this movie last night and it was so, so lovely and real

+ creepy abandoned cities

to build castles in the air. . .

some days i like the feeling i am not in control. . .

“love is thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail

it is most mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea

love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive

it is most sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky”

– e. e. cummings

+ oh, hello austria
