This TakeoverContinue reading “Five Things I Love (1-18-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)

1. This Photographer, Kirsty Mitchell – she is possibly my favorite photographer and I was lucky enough to get to see an exhibit for her book “Wonderland” in 2017. And incredibly they allowed photographs! I purchased the book (a completely worthwhile investment) but I love that I have several gorgeous digital shots. Here are aContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (1-4-2021)

1. This History of Chestnut Trees – this actually is something to both love and hate.

Seven Things I Love (12-14-2020)

1. This H&M Christmas Short Film directed by Wes Anderson – I’m a fanatic when it comes to anything Wes Anderson so it’s rather shocking that I missed this advert from 2016.

Seven Things I Love (12-7-2020)

How is it already DECEMBER???? 1. This Tea Party – Truly amazing.
