hello, how’ve you been? 😀 i know; i can’t believe it either — i got a blog post up!
*more floral dresses here
this was taken a little while ago, on valentine’s day, before john and i had dinner at our favorite Stories by Lilypad (if you haven’t been, i highly recommend it!). we had a lovely evening and went home with our hearts full. ♥
in case you were wondering: life has been good. i’m in a new home, which has meant lots of new adjustments, but also an abundance of joy and gratitude and fulfilment.
also, i am now officially hooked on plants.
clockwise from left: astrophytum asterias multi-hybrid variegata/albino | astrophytum asterias (5-rib)
gymnocalycium variegata | astrophytum asterias superkabuto (v-type)
lately we’ve been especially enamored by rare cacti, and slowly growing a fun collection of curious little plants. before we started this endeavor, i hadn’t even known cacti could look like these! and believe me, there’s more where those came from. i only photographed a handful to show you a sampling of these beauties. which one is your favorite? 🙂
fashion-wise, i’ve been living in comfy, practical clothing most days, and particularly drawn to shades of mustard (what else is new) and military green (definitely new). i am completely and utterly obsessed with graphic tees; john has had to physically drag me from shops to stop me from hoarding even more. i just can’t help it!
my oldie-but-a-goodie rebecca minkoff bag has made a major comeback as well. i stopped using it for a while as it was getting a little too beat-up, but i pulled it out of hiding and now pair it with absolutely everything. for a mini tote, it sure can fit a ton!
if you want to get this bag or any other thing your heart desires, now is the perfect time to buy!
SHOPBOP has a major sitewide sale going on right now and it’s tiered, so the more you buy, the more you save. just enter GOBIG19 at checkout to get huge discounts on full-price AND marked down items. sale ends on march 3rd, so better start adding to your cart!
in other news, summer has just about arrived (cue my annual litany on the perils and pitfalls of this deadening heat). but on the bright side, the ice cream man often passes by the house these days, and let’s just say…i’ve had plenty.
finally, i leave you with some lovely, inspiring words. this beautiful text is from the daykeeper, a 2019 planner that i got as a [belated] christmas present. it’s wonderful. x
