Scout Holiday
Scout Holiday

This was the first summer in a long time where I felt like I actually got to experience SUMMER! I just got back from 10 days in the south of France with friends and it was amazing! September always feels like the start of a new year and I am really looking forward to it.

I’ve posted about Linus Ricard’s photography before, here are a few new photos of his that sum up springtime here lately for me.
Still definitely sweater weather here in Paris! Love that purple sweater in the first image! You can feel the chill in the air.

Some Much needed Sun

My recent trip to California for the winter was exactly what I needed, some much needed SUN!
I miss my community of amazing friends there, their enthusiasm and energy is infectious and inspiring, and I left feeling complete again. As always it’s hard to return to the cold and grey, even if in a beautiful city like Paris.

I have so much to share from California so we will be back tracking a bit here and there but all good things worth sharing I think!

Fumiko Imano photography

I love the work of artist Fumiko Imano. I just found a link to her blog, and was reminded of how much I love the playful spirit of her work. It looks like she has a cool exhibit up in Singapore right now. I was so sad I just missed her show with Kotori Kawashima in Tokyo by a couple days when I was there.
