We made it to Seattle! And now we have a comfy home by the bay that needs some interior design love. This before and after blog is helping me figure out what to do with our super awesome apartment. So far, the notes I've taken are: paint floating shelves white in a white room to make them 'disappear', hang curtain rods slightly higher than the windows to make the ceilings feel higher, large carpets in small rooms make the space feel larger, and don't be afraid of large light fixtures if the ceilings are already high. I'm planning on adding lots of plants to the space to make it colorful without having to paint the walls. It is a month to month rental, after all. Transformation pics to come! 



This year I want to:

 Read more
 Create with more colors
 Create with more shapes
Eat well with good people and take that moment of silence before the meal more often
Find a home with my man in Seattle!

"Everything is biographical, Lucian Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the hidden presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border we cross."

I'm still trying to figure out what moves me about these aerial photos of Botswana. I'll be coming back to this one soon. Thanks Zack Scckler!



Cambridge, MA
To the mountains!
Snowy Pines
Timmy and Mr. Bill
Before winter completely escapes us on the east coast (and I'm not trying to hold on to it by any means), here are some of my favorite moments of winter 2013/2014. All of these photos, aside from Cambridge, were taken in either Wisconsin or outside of Seattle. Check out more on instagram


Green Thoughts

Images found here!
Sick in bed today. Luckily my fever dreams are leaving me with visceral sensations of the sun's warmth and lush green summer days. 


Childhood Photos

My favorite pictures of my siblings and I are the ones of us being silly or crying, mostly because they seem to be honest and natural, or posed in the ways we wanted to pose. I wish we captured the imagination of our childhood in photo memories like these two artists who engage creatively with their children. One draws inspiration from her sleepy baby, and the other by letting his kid get weird on a road.
