If you’re like us, today is not about the food. Don’t get us wrong, we will absolutely be chowing down on some beautiful home cooked meals; however, we like to think that the real importance of today, or any day for that matter, is to truly be in the moment, to cherish the people and opportunities we are so blessed to have in our lives, and to remember never to take advantage of those treasures. We are TRULY blessed to have the supportive loving friends and family that we do. In fact “friends” does not do justice to the people we hold dear to us yet are not blood related…”family” is much more fitting, and therefore, we consider ourselves surrounded by one LARGE and beautiful family. The beauty of this, if you are able to see things in this light, is that you will never feel lonesome, or too far from home. Having said that, we are thankful for you for joining our family, for taking a somewhat intimate peek into our lives, for sharing our passion, and for giving us a glimpse into yours. “Hapiness is not real unless shared.” – Christoper Mccandles
“When the sky is falling from above youAnd the wind is raging from the coastAnd you want someone who truly loves youI will be the one who loves you the most When the masquerades in burlesque ballsBecome too ordinary to boastYou complain about the parades and curtain callsI will be the one who loves you the mostWhen the women with their stolen gracesDon’t invite you to play hostTo their daughters with fake facesI will be the one who loves you the mostWhen all the debutants desert youAll the doorways are all closedAnd all the harlequins have hurt youI will be the one who loves you the mostWhen your suitor’s sneer and swank beside youAnd leave you hollow like a ghostAnd you just want somebody to confide toI will be the one who loves you the mostWhen you forgive your imperfectionsAnd you’ve auctioned all your clothesAnd you look to see your true reflectionYou will be the one who loves you the most”Peace & Love,
Xx Amy and Alex
“cook me in your breakfast, and put me on your plate, ’cause you know i taste great…put me in your dry dreams or put me in your wet if you haven’t yet…” -Devendra Banhart.Yeah yeah… we all know this face. Ladies and Gents… this here is infatuation at its finest.
This man. speaks in metaphors. analyzes everything. has humor with no limits. speaks in intellect and humble nature. creates on a daily (painter, musician, songwriter…). born in Texas. raised in Venezuela. studied in San Francisco at the Art Institute. can’t seem to find a song we won’t spend (money we don’t have) on. “Banhart’s albums offer ashram-appropriate guitar strums, trippy-hippie tone poetry and, if you’re lucky, at least one tune where he sings from the perspective of a rodent.” SPIN.comdo yourself a favor and watch this.the man and his thoughts…for the eyes…for the ears…
At 4 years of age… this woman has an abundance of opinions, heaps of sass, and a natural love for all things style. What she called her “fat shoes” at the age of 2, her “reggae skankin dress” at 3, and an acute awareness of her overall appearance could scare most normal adults… but the Auntie A’s make sure to nourish it…. is that bad? Meet the Auntie’s little protege, Deanne Paola. While visiting our home in the city (they live out in the country) lil’ D vanished as we made dinner, and appeared in her carefully selected pieces…. Like she said…. “oooohhhh yeeeaaaaah… now that’s what I call style”. Precious.
outfit today: yet another pair of tights, heels, and an oversized white button down. My outfit for this fine Saturday is confirmed. Thank you Men at Work, your lyrical tunes got me in a good mood. xox
“music is life but nature is vital and really, I know nothing at all” -Li.
Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson IS the definition of confident… and why wouldn’t she be? This indie sweede has mad talent. We stumbled across a video of her singing “dance, dance, dance” with her band in SF a year ago and are still continually amazed by this woman. Raised by artists and musicians, inspired by nature and Michael Jackson, and quotes herself as having a ‘memory of a goldfish.’ You simply can’t question our undying love.. you’ll be here with us soon enough. Ready to fall?
Forever faithful… A&A.
