my manhattan: not so different.

flowers and oranges

through two trees

looking in

quinoa

overwashed, but so much kinder

how i now cook dinner

to fill a burrito

sometimes life in this city is just like anywhere else. i clean my home. and i cook my dinner. and never sleep in quite enough. and i work a lot. and there's never enough time. i nest and burrow. and i chop vegetables while sipping white wine and listening to whichever folk singer is sitting heavy in my chest. i try to build a home here. and new york is the variable, not the definition.

this is a wonderful post. the pictures are great, love the flowers. the shirt you have on looks great(where is it from?) and your eyebrows are aaaaamaaazing.
hope you'll find the missing variables to the equation that is your life! have an amazing thursday afternoon! i'm a strong believer that people can be happy anywhere and that life is pretty much the same no matter where you live ...

Freaking eyebrows. I hope you realize how lucky you are with that rockin arch young lady!

Jessica said...

Sigh, your life just seems so... beautiful. I can't describe it. I love your posts they're so refreshing. :)

And that photo of you is GORGEOUS!

And white wine is amazing. However, I'm obsessed with red. Definitely one of life's little pleasures.

What type of food is that?

Its so true. To tourists, this place is overwhelming. Day to day in this city is just normal. I clean my apt. Lay in bed too much on the weekends. Make recipes that are too complicated. Lovely post!

Check out our music today on SisterDisco.com. I think you might like it Meg!
