create and capture

The beauty of dying mediums will never lose its appeal to me. Letter writing, libraries, mix CDs. I don’t shoot with film often, but boy when I do, I can just feel the magic. The uncertainty of not knowing what moment you captured. The patience until you click the last frame. The surprise of seeing […]

explore la : nice coffee

Y’all know how much I love my coffee. In the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening with dessert. Popping into cafés when I travel, meeting girlfriends for a latte date, reading with a cup of joe. At this point, it’s not about the caffeine but instead about the warmth with which it feels my heart, like […]

vancouver travel diary

The Pacific Northwest is one dreamy place. Maybe it rains a lot, but man, it sure does some beautiful things – take a look at all the GREEN.

american blue jeans and diner coffee

You know what’s better than finding that perfect pair of jeans? Nothing. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but you understand if you know how difficult it is to find well fitting denim. So now, imagine how stoked I was to finally squeeze into these hand-me-down Levi’s. When my husband’s aunt gave me a stack of clothes to go through last […]

portland, oregon : part one

Portland was even more magical and charming and perfect our second visit. I legit had to stop myself from crying multiple times due to the beauty of it all, and I’m sure I started to sound like a broken record each time I gasped and squealed at the changing leaves. It was the anniversary trip of my dreams, […]

the usual

I’ve always admired those people who know themselves and what they like so well, that they stick with it forever -whether it be a signature perfume, go-to mixed drink, or hairstyle they’ve worn for 20 years. I don’t know if it’s their commitment to these things or what, but for lack of a better word, I find […]

things that make me happy

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes me happy and actively adding more of those things into my life. I’m a serial list maker, so you bet I even made a list. Here are some things that never fail to add a little light into my day (sometimes literally), which is why I’m […]

things that make me happy

Here are some things that have been making me happy lately. 🙂 A little wooden owl to add to my collection. I found it at the Melrose Trading Post flea market, and it makes a “hoot” sound when you blow through it. An easy embellishment to old coffee tins to use as flower pots. Hoping […]

things that make me happy

Here are some things that have been making me happy lately. 🙂 Quiet mornings. I am by no means a morning person, but since we’ve been in California I’ve gotten into an early morning routine. After taking Kip out and feeding her, I make myself a cup of coffee and sit in this exact spot […]
