it’s here.

can i get an “amen” please?

will the real katie osumi please stand up?

this week i’ve been a bathrobe shuffling, katherine hepburn bobble head, babbling out weighty thoughts {at least i think they are} and musings with the gravity of gossamer to anyone who’ll listen…mainly my beasts.


i’m in a state of flux.

i don the tuxedo of flux.

neither here, nor there but i can make out my footprints in both places.

i’m using this weekend to knob down the noise of the motley crue playing, live, in my brain.


speaking of song…this isn’t a new ditty, but after seeing the trailer for the remake of carrie {the ONLY part of the movie i will be watching,} i became obsessed with lykke li’s haunting version of “will you still love me tomorrow.”


again, with obsessions: blackberry farm, nestled in the foothills of the great smoky mountains of tennessee has been a fantasy of mine for some time. a luxurious, organic working farm that also hosts couples and families in an inn far more beautiful than any fancy-nancy, five-star european hotel or balinese four seasons.  it is number one on the list of places i want to visit.

until then though i’m happy to announce we all can bring a little bit of the farm home to us and those we love. blackberry farm has just opened their online shop, and it’s crammed with artisanal, gourmet goodies such as their peanut butter and jam collection or the blackberry farm cheese club; both which will be on my auto-ship program.




 although it doesn’t happen until sunday, i’m still in love with the idea of the extra hour we get this weekend as the clocks change back! what will you be doing with your extra hour?

mine will involve nightgowns, coffee and this book.

finally, if you need me at any other time this weekend i’ll be at my computer watching this for the next 72 hours. it’s a live feed of the new litter from gucci, an assistance dog for a young girl with autism. my friend ryan sent this link to me on tuesday, and i have been rendered stupid, mushy, and incapable of finishing any tasks since.

love to you all.

see you on the other side of sunday.

if you’re participating in the #holidayhustle make sure you post on instagram and like me on facebook so i can see your progress and hustle with you too!
