It would be virtuous to claim that I am a mother first, or wife, or activist, or whatever. The truth is I that can never really take my stylist apron off. I mean, I was a stylist first!

So while the house falls to delicious shambles on an hourly basis, between brunches, rehearsals for an upcoming Dan Zanes concert & 8-boy playdates, there's always a carefully curated Autumn display on my dining buffet.
Can I please share what's beautiful to me right now?

This old thing. Their entire physics curriculum in one object. Over 100 years-old, 1 family-strong from Japan. And really all things old, practical & useful.
This King-sized Acorn Quilt by D's mama & his 95 year-old grandma (GG). Exquisitely made. Somehow, by the grace of God, on my very own wall. More love made visible.
