Friday Phone Dump

“So Whether music or madness
Live by one of the two

Go on, fill your heart up with gladness
Not a moment too soon

Should we ration the reasons
To the charts that ignore

Of this I've never been sure

So i will follow the feeling
And sing fever to the form
Oh my fever to the form

'Cause the very thing you're afraid, afraid of
It keeps you clean but unclear
Clean but unclear

Is the dirt that you're made, you're made of
And thats nothing to fear
No, its nothing my dear”

1-6) The college football National Championship game was in San Jose on Monday, so all of downtown was taken over by the events leading up to it. We went to go check it out since they were free on Friday for people from California, and it was pretty cool! I love that Bay Area logo they made—so great! Also, it was pretty weird to see Oklahoma stuff in San Jose…world collide haha

7-8) Pretty moments of light

9-12) I got to help my friend, Liza, out with another water shoot this weekend! It was very rainy and pretty cold, but the photos turned out great. It took me a good 24 hours to properly warm up afterward though—lots of sweaters and sitting right in front of the heater!

13-14) I am just loving these rainy and cloudy days we keep having. I’ve been craving deep winter, so this feels really satisfying to me! I love how dark it can get on a rainy afternoon, and i love lighting candles that smell nice when that happens. I realize this probably sounds depressing— I promise I also love days like yesterday when it’s 60 degrees and sunny in the middle of January. All of it is goodness, all of it is sweet.

15-18) More rainy day snaps from my walk home, and a shot of my life lately: drinking Mexican hot chocolate while writing my heart out on behalf of Everlane…also, still covered in dog hair :) These are good days.


19) I mean, how delicious is that sky?!


20) From the bus stop yesterday reading one of my new books from Christmas, The Flavor Thesaurus! It’s one I’ve been wanting for a few years now, and it’s such an inspiring little collection of flavor pairings that makes me want to create all the food things. Also, seeing this to-go cup really made me mad that I forgot to bring my KeepCup with me. I am officially obsessed with that thing and will probably be buying one for you, so check your mail ;)

This weekend will be pretty chill for us— we’re having some friends over for dinner tonight and probably just relaxing the rest of the time. I hope your weekend is great!
