So desperate

for spring

I bought some grass 

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I am facinated by language

the light is good

you could probably fill this room
love sacs and it would still be amazing 
because of that light

I like this better than love sacs though

My beach vacation continues

except without those stupid rugs and deer head.

airy, pretty, simple

vacation over
off to do my taxes
pray for me

it's important
for your health

I spent yesterday at the Mall of America
not at all relaxing
but Legoland did have some nice art

and there were delicious treats

and lots of laughs

and when we were leaving she shouted
"Gilbertson family out!

Spring Break at the beach

fantasize much?  

Spending my break looking at beach-like interiors

I like this one.

It's not too literal.

Emily, I like

do you like?

More loft love


Saturday, March 26, 2011

I know you get me, so I let my walls come down

blown up for detail

now don't go stopping around and messing up
my perfectly gray London loft.

if I lived here, I would have my nose pierced

Today, I'm thinking

I want my nose pierced

just a tiny little diamond.
you can't even see it

your thoughts please

(not yours dad)

To be from Minnesota
when her name is linked to it

You might not have known

you needed these
they are new
(I think)

this will make you look like you had 8 hours of sleep
and you were not up worried about fevers, finances, and genocide

this is awesome and reminds me of when I was little

Do you like?

I like the mix of formal and casual

I also like that she sits up and talks today

yesterday was scary, feverish sleep all day 
punctuated by periods of delirious mumbling
the kind of fever you read about in a historical novel

I don't like waking up to this in late March

I know better

than to open the emails from Shopbop
they just make being broke that much harder

but as I sit here and watch her little body fight both strep and influenza

I am weak.

mom don't worry I did not buy anything

things that suck


especially when it's 50 degrees
for the first time in 6 months

and you have to postpone your kid's birthday party

and you don't get to eat the cake

things that don't suck

Rita Konig


kids get super cuddly when feverish

Just a dream

I spend an inordinate amount of time
thinking about things that will never be

does that mean I'm immature?

emotionally stunted?

or wildly imaginative and creative

optimistic even

let's just call it survival

shall we?

You shouldn't have

thanks House Beautiful for the fab pullout poster.
you shouldn't have.
no really
you shouldn't have

it was bulky and useless
and available online too
so no need for the extra paper 
and printing costs
no wonder the mags are going out of business

Kiss me anyway

May neighbours respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.
