this week


Freshly washed linen sheets


Finally using the bubble bath I bought in London last year.  And this candle smells like a used bookstore.


Revisiting my favorite muffin recipe


Finally reading a classic, and trying to learn from a Buddhist monk


Cold, rainy days are perfect for fresh banana bread


i don’t yet have the words for what has happened in the world this week.  maybe i will eventually, or never.  since we are home for the foreseeable future, i will be showing you little bits of the apartment and what we are up to.  we are fortunate to be able to work from home, so i am going to focus on gratitude these days.

dior heels

gone are the days i choose to run around at work in 4 inch stilettos (except for my manolo bbs of course).  i tried these on at the dior boutique while waiting for an appointment, and fell in love.  the 3 inch feel is so much more manageable, yet still very elegant.  the black swiss dot is so fresh and looks great with tights.


dining area

my post from the holidays made me realize that i never did a dining area reveal.  while this area will still change over time as we collect more art from our travels, it makes me ridiculously happy to eat at as is.  the lamp is from drew barrymore’s collection for walmart and fits in perfectly without blocking the art.
