I think spring is really here this time around. The tree in the backyard is in bloom and the bees are happily feasting. I spent yesterday afternoon outside reading and dozing in the sun. I'm happy, energetic, hopeful. The Florida sun spoiled me and it's hard to endure long, dark winters, but it looks like … Continue reading trees, bees
First snow, then spring. It was a weird (and beautiful) week in Charlottesville. Looking forward to a warm weekend spent catching up with out-of-town friends.
A little behind on the photo challenge, but that's ok. Once again, I failed to take images specific to the weekly colors, but I found a few photos that pass for blue and purple. My first instagram pic was taken after last week's snow; the robins were out in droves, flitting around, eating worms, and … Continue reading one word photo challenge: blue + purple
We went to Richmond for a couple hours yesterday so Daniel could do some research for a paper he's writing. While he toured the museum, I walked down to the Capitol and strolled through the monument park, taking pictures along the way.

I also found a union made pleated skirt in a beautiful royal blue. Clothes are wearable … Continue reading shop update: grunge + union made
Spring is here! I went on a long, meandering (physically and conversationally) walk on the Saunders-Monticello Trail with my friends, Kristen and Amy, this afternoon. Parts of the trail were damaged due to Wednesday's aggressive snowfall, so we courageously maneuvered through blocked pathways and locked gates to make it to the end. It's incredible that … Continue reading on the trail
