faves and obsessions

(explore these and more on my flickr faves page)


so…i’m back.

more or less. emphasis on the less for now.

my little poppy girl is now 10 weeks old! she’s still keeping me and her daddy quite busy, but we’ve gotten to know her (and she’s in turn gotten to know us) and we’ve all finally started to fall into a routine of sorts.

i have found that i am now able to find a few minutes here and there to get online, and browse around. i’m hoping that i will occasionally be able to find more time to write/blog a bit here and there, too.

it may be a little bit before i’m back here in full effect, but hey…baby steps. πŸ™‚


some faves and obsessions of mine of late:

-thrifting. it’s been months since i’ve been able to go, and i am aching to comb over the racks and cases for sweet little finds. not having gone in so long actually hurts, as i used to try to go a couple times a week pre-baby…

-blood oranges = sweet happiness.

-flats with ankle straps.

-the fashion-y quotes sarah zucker posts on her lil tumblr blog, farpitz.

-this blog, entitled bugheart. the photos therein are perfectly poetic, as is the text. go look, you’ll see.

-my daughter’s perfect, tiny ears. i like to examine them as i nurse her. i never tire of looking at her. she’s amazing.


how are you?

i’ve missed you.

    I was expecting an extended goodbye as one prepares for a long winter. This hiatus was merely a jaunt. You were missed. A warm welcome back.
