(deep) breathing.

today is one of those days when the weight of the laundry overpowers. when my wood floor suddenly seems too dirty to walk on. when the proximity of a bank i trust is utterly too far for comfort or ease.

(when i've begun to panic about all the things i probably should have panicked about a week ago.)

that being said, my tickets to see beirut arrived in the mail today. and the young man at the corner store gifted me three tickets to see the yankees this friday. those two things along with salads consisting entirely of arugula, capers, pine nuts and olive oil have me breathing deeply.

so for your continued (deep) breathing i leave you with the following beirut video {one of my favorites}.

(i told you. i really do have a thing for unruly curls).

I love Beirut! So soothing and joyous. Btw- in regards to your post about Alisha's apartment ...I did the same exact thing when I saw it. Literally everything you said. A wine fridge?!? Sigh. Hope you're doing well girl :)

Everyone else seems to be familiar with this perfectly wonderful music... and somehow little me over here, had never heard of Beirut. Thank you for introducing me to this boy with unruly curls and happy tunes. I love it!!
I'm glad that though you are in the middle of a sad and blurry panic, {I say blurry, because my moments of panic are often blurred by tears... and I imagine some of your are too} you still remember to breath... and too, that there are cheerful things to be appreciated.
There is beauty to behold and joy to revel in.
ps. It is good to breath! Happy me, had a panic attack once upon a time ago, and it was so out of control that I had to go to the hospital! {everyone thought I was having a heart attack!} One of the scariest and silliest days of my life. Just because I got overwhelmed and worried...
sometimes I too forget that God is taking care of me.
lol How lame is that?!
