Throwback Thursday Date ✨
We decided to revisit our favorite high school date spots. So we hit up 101 Market for pumpkins & mini donuts, drove around in our 98' Cabrio listening to high school tunes, thrifted the cutest striped baby overalls and a Michael Pollen book and stopped at Trader Joe's for some apple cider & chocolate. I'm thinking some Hocus Pocus or Practical Magic may be in order to complete a wonderful evening ✨🍂🍁🎃🌚 #acolorstory

"How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself."
- Virginia Woolf, The Waves

be still my autumnal loving heart ✨🍁🍂
My true blue girl @ruh_shel pulled me out of my funk today by forcing me to get dressed and picked me up for a coffee date. Thank goodness for friends you can lean on when you're blue, who bring you chocolates from Bruges, and humor your request for outfit photos under random fall trees ✨🍂🍁☕️ #acolorstory

On days when the magnitude and magnificence of life makes me catch my breath. The only things that makes sense is nature and poetry ✨here's a little bit of both

We will never have any memory of dying.

We were so patient
about our being,
noting down
numbers, days,
years and months,
hair, and the mouths we kiss,
and that moment of dying
we let pass without a note—
we leave it to others as memory,
or we leave it simply to water,
to water, to air, to time.
Nor do we even keep
the memory of being born,
although to come into being was tumultuous and new;
and now you don’t remember a single detail
and haven’t kept even a trace
of your first light.

It’s well known that we are born.

It’s well known that in the room
or in the wood
or in the shelter in the fishermen’s quarter
or in the rustling canefields
there is a quite unusual silence,
a grave and wooden moment as
a woman prepares to give birth.

It’s well known that we were all born.

But of that abrupt translation
from not being to existing, to having hands,
to seeing, to having eyes,
to eating and weeping and overflowing
and loving and loving and suffering and suffering,
of that transition, that quivering
of an electric presence, raising up
one body more, like a living cup,
and of that woman left empty,
the mother who is left there in her blood
and her lacerated fullness,
and its end and its beginning, and disorder
tumbling the pulse, the floor, the covers
till everything comes together and adds
one knot more to the thread of life,
nothing, nothing remains in your memory
of the savage sea which summoned up a wave
and plucked a shrouded apple from the tree.

The only thing you remember is your life ✨

Two candles lit in remembrance for my babies and one for yours. One hour devoted to lighting a candle and remembering babies lost. It's funny to have a day of remembrance considering I remember my babies every time I light a candle, when I see a baby, when the cool fall air smells so sweet and the sun shines through the trees. In fact it's hard to not remember the babies I'll never get to hold. But then again, I never want to forget ✨🕯
Beauty in the everyday ✨
My photos are a collection of silver linings, a study in the beauty of the normal every day moments. What could be more beautiful than that? 💙☕️#WHPmyeveryday

While listening to the news this morning recounting unimaginable horror of ethnic cleansing, destruction of homes and livelihoods, and the crumbling infrastructure of our government I felt broken, I'm sure you feel broken too.
Me and my husband turned off the radio, not to avoid the news. We can't shut out our fellow humans and their pain. We shut it off to have an honest discussion about how we can do better. Better at discussing these things, better at acknowledging our own privilege, better at lending a hand and helping during a crisis, better at speaking out, to just do better ✨🍂🍁
It's a beautiful thing to make your little sister a big latte and talk for hours about life, books, boys, pregnancy, miscarriage, and happiness. The only way I can keep going in this crazy messed up sad world and stay positive is to talk about how I'm feeling and know others are feeling that too. It's nice to share these moments with her ✨☕️🐓 #mylittlemplskitchen

Do you remember that scene in That 70s Show where Eric goes to work with Kitty at the hospital where she's a nurse? He's shocked by how she can go home at the end of the day and be positive. Her response to his question about how she does it? Singing loudly in the car.
Working in a hospital is indescribable. But man, does that scene nail it on the head. This beautiful, messy, hard, sad, glorious job can leave you feeling broken some days and so blessed others.
I can't ever tell you the details, but today I feel so blessed. After the past six months I've had I felt so blessed to get a sign, a verbal confirmation I'm where I'm needed, I'm doing what I need to be doing. So touched by this job and the people that I meet and the lives I'm allowed to be a part of; so touched that I cried when I got to my car. So while the tears flowed I turned up the radio loud --so, like Kitty, I could loudly sing all the way home ✨🍁🍂#laboranddeliverynurse

Giving myself grace to be angry at times. To give into sadness. To cry when I need to. To talk to people, to tell them how I really feel.
Allowing myself to be vulnerable in the face of pain and to sometimes give into my grief instead of trying to push through it. ✨🍁🍂 that's all. Don't be afraid to feel your feelings.

Candles, hot bubble bath, open window with a cool breeze, and a furry onlooker. Ideal bath situation (furry onlooker not required, but amusing) 🕯🛁🍂✨🐱 #mycatdarcy
"I've tried to leave it all behind me
But I woke up and there they were beside me
And I don't believe it but I guess it's true
Some feelings, they can travel too
Oh there it is again, sitting on my chest
Makes it hard to catch my breath
I scramble for the light to change
You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind
And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here"
