I am headed to Brooklyn this weekend and cannot want to get back to a place that feels like home. Beacon feels like home too, but a new home. Brooklyn, being there for so long feels like part of me. I can wait to spend the money that I will spend though. Since moving, I realize how much not only did I spend on rent but on every day things. Constantly surrounded by good food, pretty objects and perfectly curated stores - every day was a challenge. Anyway! I hope you have a good weekend and give yourself a gift. X
One of my goals living in the Hudson valley is to cook more. That is, I cook all the time but the same things, the same six tricks. So I have been picking one to two recipes a week and getting my kitchen dirty with goodness! I made this really refreshing peach and tomato salad last night. So easy, so good!
If you are in the mood to be moved and fall in love with words and voice, listen to "A Wild Love for the World", an On Being podcast. I am not necessarily god centric in any way, but these words are just so beautiful. Listen and feel human:

Tuesday now and dreaming of Cape Cod, sitting in my home with the rain outside. I could not have felt more cozy and safe. There is something so wonderful about the rain when you are home on a saturday. It almost forces us to nurture ourselves. Today, I would go right back to that moment (with a few dream accessories of course!)
1. These linens look so soft and perfect. I want to just float into them and stay there forever.
2. Wearing something cute of course!
3. I am a huge fan of almond oil. It leaves the skin soft, smelling just amazing and not as oily as coconut oil.
4. These two of course cuddling right next to me (and my own cats duh). Gahh one day I will have a bunny!
5. Reading Murakami's 1Q84 (which I just bought).

Ben and I are off to the Cape for a long weekend. I CANNOT wait to float in the pool, and lay in the sand and eat lots and lots of fried things!
Have you tried St. Germain before? I never really knew much about the drink before some friends told me it was going to me the theme ingredient at their wedding. Now, I can't get enough! Simply mix with gin and tonic and oh my, delish!
this dress is too "white" to wear to a wedding!?!?!
When I was in Mexico last year I had the most wonderful, best, delicious pickled radishes of my life! I have tried a few times to replicate, no deal. I think I will give this one a go!
odd, sad and beautiful.
