this week on tumblr

Just a few things that I'd like to share with you from my tumblr page this Friday.

Cutie pa-tootie rocking the menswear look.

She proclaimed to me, giddy in her liberation, “I could just quit my job. I could … I could move to Brazil and teach yoga! I could totally do that!” YES! Yes Yes Yes! That’s the connection to make.

MAKE CHANGES. Take risks, dream big, no bigger, follow through, and don’t ever be passive in your life’s direction. Be an active player – an ACTIVIST – in Every. Thing. You. Do. Statistically speaking, periods of recession are hotbeds of revolution. Now is the time to be extreme. Now is the time to find your bliss and live your truth. There is nothing strong enough to stop you.

This blog was recommended to me recently by my sister and I love it. Love her thoughts on townhouses, babies, aesthetics, food & following your dreams.

Beautiful, enchanting video. Don't you wish your own baking experiences were like this?


The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

Update: You've all heard this by now, but late Friday evening, June 24, 2011, New York State became the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage with its passage of the Marriage Equality Bill. As I walked home past the state capitol that afternoon, I stopped to throw a few lucky thoughts for justice and equality its way. I am proud to be a New Yorker and to live in a state that recognizes the legal and human rights of its citizens, regardless of sexual orientation. To live just a few blocks from where such an historic moment occurred is exciting and humbling.


I love the combination of shiny gold paint and natural wood. A nice compromise for guys & gals.

My friend is a doctoral student in Earth and Environmental Science and she’s spending a few weeks in Summit, Greenland to learn more about “the frosty and unique Arctic region”. Incredible, right? They get 24-hour sunlight and are in sub-freezing temps all the time. She took this picture at 11pm!

'Tis all for now. Our apartment is painted (which means we can start cooking again!), a friend from Brazil is in town for the next few days and perhaps it will stop raining long enough for us to enjoy the first official week of summer. I rang in the new season with a farm tour and strawberry-picking festival-- read my post about the strawberries and baby goats here!
