newness.

5.13.2012















+ Friday evening was one spent at the tennis courts, followed by fruit fondue on the deck while dad chopped up wood for a later-on bonfire (chloe and i sang home at the top of our lungs). These almost-summer evenings are the best motivator to get through final projects and soon, exams.

+ A little spruce-up. Because sometimes, even a change of scenery on the internet is nice. I'm loving my new space, generously handcrafted by a dear friend. After slapping a used coffee cup onto a sheet of paper and messily scrawling out my blog name, I handed over the reigns to Carlotta - who has some magical design superpower, I'm convinced. This girl's had to put up with my indecisiveness for days now, so go show her some love.

+ I know, I swore I'd never get one. But, oops. My finger slipped, and I accidentally made a tumblr? Yep, that's what happened... But honestly, after embarking on a new mission to source every work of art (whether it be a photo, a painting, or just a sentence) to it's respective artist, I thought I'd start fresh and create this new journal in lieu of pinterest.

So, that's what's new.

ps. happy mama's day to my beautiful mother. thank-you for everything.
