milkshakes and pretty things.









 after picking up ruby from school one friday we had a bit of fun visiting the old mac alpines on 7th for some good old fashioned milkshakes up at the counter, followed by some fabulous thrift shopping next door. she has apparently taken to the upward gaze into the sky as the new picture pose. who knows why. 

we followed up our adventure with a visit to cleo and clementine; a shop on the 7th Ave. curve that is simply lovely. they sew all the dresses there and the owner is a doll with impeccable taste. if only i had a reason to dress fancy. new years party perhaps? 

so it was a pretty fun afternoon to treasure.

maine beauty.


we recently traveled across the country for my little brother's wedding in sidney, maine. everything about the trip (maybe with the exception of airplane rides) was pretty perfect. it was truly a wonderland of beauty; one i only hope to enjoy again in this lifetime. 
feeling incredibly blessed to have been able to get away to see such a gorgeous state, be with all of my family in one big casa, and to witness a simply lovely and blessed marriage. next time i'm staying for the summer; and making my way into canada. big plans let me tell you.
