my book

I saw this today on a tumblr and thought how lovely a whole book about me!

Because she is much braver than I to talk about it out loud read this. I just kept nodding my head yes, through the whole thing. anxiety is a little b*tch.

Nun Chic

I'm calling it Nun Chic. Who's in?

I had a dress like this 15 years or so ago. It was perfect, one.giant.tent.chic of a dress and I miss it. All three of these are by COMME DES GARÇONS so I won't be affording any of them but I want them all.

wear with brogues and a jean jacket or a high boot. I could jazz up the nun-chic look for sure.

plus? three dresses equals three whole days I don't have to think about dressing. pull it out of the closet, throw it on with a chunky accessory and go. I can't tell you how bad I just want ONE.

I have a decorating bug right now. No time or dollars to achieve this bug but there is some inspiration for sure.

It took me a year to have prints made from our wedding. They are currently sitting on my office floor. I also have about 1,000 things framed already in my house and stacked in misc places [artfully of course]. This stacking shelf idea is all me. Stack on the floors, stack on the walls it's all good.

these colors make me really happy. I might not be bold enough to do it myself but damn if it doesn't make a good photo.

orange and purple. I would have never considered it before this picture. It's growing on me.

I'm kinda crazy about how color transitions between rooms. One of the many quirks I have. This is kinda perfect really. As is that giant photo above the bed. Yes. No, on the green quilt covering the couch though. I'll pass on that.

so this happened today

It's probably an intern running the Twitter over there but a girl can dream. Hey, maybe they found this stashed in a closet finally. If that's the case Jeff is up there in heaven helping a girl out.

read this

It may be every possible life question answered in the most thoughtful and amazing way. There were a couple of chapters that were so moving I had to put the book down and walk around the block.

I'm not sure I've ever cried as much reading a book, as I did with this one. I find it amazing that she never spent time in therapy. Her conversations are someone well versed in boundries and good, thoughtful living. Her trail adventure must have been one hell of a life learning experience.

Read Wild first but make Tiny Beautiful Things next up.
