7.28

post birthday living room





I think this year will be a good one... It definitely started out differently. No grandeur adventures this year. Instead a hodge podge mish mash of errands and lovely little things. Cold weather mornings and fancy lunches at the Tadich Grill. Shopping around Haight Street - where I found an amazing 30s/40s faded cotton paisley peter pan smock shirt that works as a 60s esque mini. I ended up wearing it last night to the party instead of my 20s dress... Speaking of, photos of party things to come! Although, I didn't really worry about taking pictures yesterday, I just let the day happen as it may. It felt nice. I did brake my tradition of wearing a 20s dress for all my 'twenties' birthdays and taking proper pictures, but I think that's okay too.

I sometimes have to take a break from looking through my lens. Helps me enjoy the moment for what it is, fleeting, without the instant nostalgia. You have a lovely home.

Sometimes when I break traditions I feel like I'm becoming a grown up...

love the photos lovely! It does feel quite liberating in some ways when we take a step back from the usual, and break out into spontaneity..sometimes it feels uncomfortable, to let things happen as they may(Love that idea) is so nice! Just to see where the day takes us with no plans :)
but i do love that idea of 20's dress for ur 20th bday! I just turned 20, and i should have done that ;) ahh next year, 21st century dress hmm..lol.
