hope is the thing with feathers

    When words run dry,
    he does not try,
    nor do I.

    We are on par.

    He just is,
    I just am
    and we just are.

    this is the pattern of so many of my conversations. i always cringe a bit when i realize it.

    That Time Cleveland Released 1.5 Million Balloons and Chaos Ensued

    cleveland is my hometown and it’s nice to see something bring a little color and whimsy to a typically industrial and gray city (even if it happened accidentally).

    also, it reminds me of this!

so interesting how technology has evolved. especially when it brings us videos like this one.

    the weekend can’t come soon enough. 
thursday afternoon i log out of my work computer, pack a bag and point my jetta northwest towards music city. 
i will be visiting my little sister who just moved into the cutest house with two of her best friends. she’s within walking distance of a mexican restaurant, pizza place, vintage shop and some fun boutiques, so yes, i am jealous. but— these treasures will be mine for a few days, too. 
i’m excited to do some things with her for the first time— she’s only been there about three weeks (and already has more friends than i do). we have a list of restaurants to try, fun places to check out and trendy coffee shops to sneakily scope out d-list celeb singer-songwriter dudes. (just kidding. mostly.)
she has to work a bit and i am hoping to take advantage of the Nashville B-cycle program to do some city exploring. maybe it’s kind of nerdy but all i can think about lately is getting out on a bike and the weather this weekend is supposed to be near-perfect.
any tips on things to do/see/eat/experience while i’m there? i’m a nash rookie and i know there’s a lot of cool stuff to take advantage of!
(p.s. is this print not the coolest? hoping it goes back on sale soon!)

    mondays are much more exciting when they end in a fun adventure to an art museum. i love the high here in atlanta and last night i was invited by a friend to visit and hear a lecture by artist Julie Mehretu. i loved listening to julie speak about her work, her process and her experiences in making. her large-scale paintings focus on architecture, historic events and movements. wish i had gotten a shot of her piece that was on display- i probably could have looked at it all night and not gotten bored. the icing on the cake was the beautiful weather and a peek at these awesome holographic pieces by Jim Waters. they are so fun and my pictures could never do them justice.

    i wish every single one of you knew my friend liam. liam is brilliant and hard working, humble and easily the funniest person i know. i’ve never been around him and not been having the greatest time.

    i say this because even though you can’t all know liam, you can all follow him. his blog is one of my favorites. i imagine him giggling as he reblogs silly gifs and quotes and it always makes my day. 

    it almost fills the liam-shaped hole in my heart after he left our company for a new job last october. i know life is unfair because no longer are my lunch breaks filled with the best and most hilarious and maybe NSFW conversations. here are some of the most memorable: 

    -deep thoughts on grungy celebrities 

    -his life’s aspirations

    -on childhood crushes

    -his word of the week

    -laguna beach heartbreak

    -company birthday cakes

    -household chores

    -taking care of loved ones

    also, look at this cute face. can’t help but love liam.

    (& walking his cat. seriously.)
