  3. Weeknight date

    A few weeks ago, when Sam and I biked up to the Cloisters, I decided it was finally time to invest in a bike. The one I had been riding was a hand-me-down from Sam’s neighbor to Sam to me, and it finally gave up and pretty much died on 125th street as we did the most dangerous part of our ride, weaving around double parked cars and taxis on our way to the Hudson River Greenway. The chain was…

  5. Ocean Vases

    WOW I love these Waterscape Vases from West Elm so, so much.

    I’m obsessed with sea glass. It’s so dreamy and beautiful, even though I know it comes from less-than-stellar glass-litter origins.

  7. Cleaning NYC grout

    In keeping with yesterday’s experience theme, I thought I’d talk about grout.

    For those of you who are lucky enough to have never encountered a typical NYC bathroom, I’d like you to picture the most horrifying rest-stop or public park bathroom you’ve ever been to in your life. The moldy corners, the leaky pipes, the suspect smells, and the layers and layers of gunk built up in between the tile.…

    On blogging, materialism, and Water Lilies

    I’ve been thinking a lot about materialism. Specifically, is it possible to write about material items on a weekly basis – coveting them, making them, upgrading them for purely asthetic purposes – without becoming, in the end, simply about things?

    Sometimes I feel shallow for caring about what our couch legs look like. Shouldn’t having a couch be enough? Shouldn’t the fact that we have an…
