Good evening

Luca Bear wants to wish you all a very happy evening. Smile.

Union square heart

From KC. Thank you love!

Hard to believe this little angel is going to be a big sister soon!
I'm so madly in love with this photo of her, she looks like T sooooo much. I cannot help but wonder what little boy faz will resemble. Being that I produced a blue eyed, blond haired child, anything is possible. Anything.
I miss you Audy! Big hugs to you and the baby belly.

the emotion of a photo

do you ever see a photo that just blows your mind? it makes you instantly happy, or sad, or something totally different than you were feeling moments before you set your eyes on it?
It happens to me hourly.
There are pictures from my childhood that do this but then leave me aching for my 6 year old self. On the other side of the spectrum, there are pictures like the one below, that make me happy and hyper to be 30 (something), living the life I live.

dearest shoe fairy


Oh Elizabeth and James, how I love your snake-embossed zip sandal in blush with golden hardware and a 4.5 inch wrapped heel. Yes, it's absolutely true, I love everything about it and am imaging myself now dancing, 4.5 inches taller, on a hot summer night.

3 years ago


Time is an incredible thing.
Three years ago this month I packed a bag and boarded a plane for Tanzania. I had limited knowledge of what kind of work I would participate in once I touched down, only having one random email correspondence with previous volunteers at the location I was going to. I knew I was to work with children with disabilities, to what capacity that meant, I had no clue. What I was absolutely certain of, as I got on my KLM flight bound for Amsterdam and then Kilimanjaro, was that something big was about to happen to me. I knew from deep down, that I was meant to embark on the journey of a lifetime and I needed to do so with my heart wide open.
Of the month I spent on African soil each minute meant something in relation to my existence. There was no wasted time, for time was so precious there. Things needed to be done and they needed to be done stat. Babies needed to be fed, classes needed to be taught, children needed to be saved, shots needed to be given, tears needed to be shed, sights needed to be seen. And that's precisely what was done. I woke each morning to live.
To LIVE.
My spirit came alive and my heart began to know love again and I gave myself fully to all the beautiful souls around me.
The people I met danced in my head as I closed my eyes at night, they played songs to the beat of my heart and in the morning, when I heard that first rooster crow, I'd feel the energy of the people get me out of bed.
It was an epic month which will forever be inside of me, a time when I was my absolute happiest, most fulfilled. I don't know if I ever felt as pure - before or after - as I did when I was there. And what I learned was to be your absolute true self is the best feeling in the world.
I suppose it's why I dream of adventures and travel all the time and the reason I feel so attached to all of the people I met there. Even if I never see them, or hardly speak to them, my heart is connected to them and forever grateful to them for showing me how to love life, myself and others once again.
It's been ages since I looked at the photos from my trip, scrolling through them now brings me so much joy.
Click here to see them all. Perhaps they will bring you some love today.

pack your bags...

if you could go anywhere right this moment where would it be and what would you pack?

I get such simple pleasures from taking a moment and thinking about where I'd love to go if I had the time/money to jump on a plane and just GO. I'm really feeling the idea of being on the back of a motorcycle or a pick up truck and cruising the southern hemisphere. Wind, sun, sea, fresh air...
And you? Where would you like to go?

stella + gap, again!

The new Stella McCartney for Gap Kids collection came out today. I am in L.O.V.E.
I feel so lucky that I had Bear at a time when kids fashion is so delectable. And, er, collectable.



see the whole adorable collection here.

another day, another rainfall

The rain is coming down so heavy that by the time I got to work my legs were soaking and my entire jacket drenched. Where's the sun? Is it in your part of the world? If so, I'm coming over...

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never! "
-winston churchill

Loving this photo.
But of course it made me ponder the whole thing. What's your thought, if someone wrote this on a wall for you, how would it make you feel? and would you run with them?

question: what do you do to keep yourself smiling and energized on dreary days?

wish I was here...

image from here.
it's a rainy new york monday. which somehow makes being away from my boy for a whole work day even more heartbreaking than usual. Typically I can muster up strength to keep my thoughts of him away and focused on my job, but not today. I miss him and his endless smiles and laughs.

happy monday!

this is one of those facebook posts... but then I thought it was kind of clever.


"Whatever u give a woman, she will make it greater. Give her sperm, she will give u a baby. Give her a house, she will give u a home. Give her groceries, she will give u a meal. Give her a smile, she will give u her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what she is given. So if u give her crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit... Post it on your wall if u agree!"

Heart tattoo

Me: "why did you get a heart tattoo?"
Her: "because my heart was broken. But look, it's repaired...see the
stitches?"

Lucky girl. A mended broken heart is the best kind of heart.

Gorgeousness

Amanda and Selene looking absurdly beautiful on this incredibly
perfect Thursday evening.

My dream is to be by the water. I need to feel it on my body soon. I am desperate for a swim in the sea, just the thought of it is therapeutic .

question


if you could go back to one particular time in your life, when would it be?

I just had a very emotional moment that's left a giant lump in my throat. Does that ever happen to you when you think of your past? If so, what is it? What does that to you?
image from kissing her cage good-bye
sometimes, just sometimes, life will hand you shit. and sometimes you just have to say fuck it and be pissed. but it will pass. it always does. but when they shit is on your plate, close your eyes, look for a white light to shine through your soul. and that, my dear friend, is me thinking of you. my soul to yours.

snapshots: a walk to work in...

As I left for work this morning I took out my iPhone (my G10 is at the repair shop, which is breaking my heart) and decided I wanted to do my walk to work in photos again today. The first thing I thought of was capturing all the animals I saw. Dogs, pigeons, a stuffed animal in a child's hand. Strangely enough, I didn't see a single animal. Not one. I did see a man that resembled an ape, but I didn't think that should count.
What I did see was this beautiful feather. And like a true lunatic, I ran after it. AND! Voila!
My walk to work, a very beautiful pigeon feather. Enjoy.
