week two of this new year: january 8-14


















i've been waking up with no sense of what day it is or where i am or if i even know my name. this is how i know i am busy. so i am trying--really, i am--to focus in on the little things. the chance meeting of feet against cobblestone. the warmth of a really good latte. a book so well-loved and so oft-read the pages are falling out. beautiful plates. the sighting of a vespa. animal crackers and their ability to transport me some twenty-two years. and the joy that comes from days well-filled with work and laughter, new friends and cute men, and the dreams we share over the breaking of bread.

Those animal crackers! They transport me to a time where my mother would let me sit in the grocery cart while she shopped, opening one of those boxes to share between me and my brother until we got home.

Thanks for the reminder to take in the littler things! Your words are so beautiful!

@ anonymous: just finished Dancing on Thorns by Rebecca Horsfall (it may have been the fourth time through, but i just adore it and the world it invites the reader into).

So beautifully well written! I love animal crackers so much, delicious! And the plates are absolutely gorgeous. Life is purely about the little things! It's so good to take everything in and just enjoy it.

Following you on Instagram makes me feel like beautiful, old-fashioned, movie-worthy NYC is the real deal.
