More snipets :) I feel blessed in life, and I hope all of you are finding blessings this winter, enjoying warmth and love and happiness - and if not, keep faith those things are waiting just around the corner! We were displaced and homeless for months and, now, we have the warmest home full of rescued garbagebin flower bouquets, tea, avocados softening against collections of jars in the kitchen, piles of pillows and blankets on the floor to watch movies on, hazy smoke, love, love love. I find love letters from Ryan, stuffed into the pockets of his work pants, when I do laundry - forgotten things that are two pages long. I find myself crying and feeling everything - we watched ET and i sobbed, tears streaming down my face, and he laughed at me and stuffed his face into my lap for comfort. I fall asleep with his arms around me and wake up with mine around him, tangled in sleep and adoration and thankfulness for eight hours a night.
For valentines we went to montauk, and stopped at roadside antique and oddity stores, a little like house of a thousand
corpses (yes, those are horses with mermaid tails..).
We had watched an interview with kat bjelland Babes in toyland (was it her? I think it was the singer..), about her time roommating with courtney love, and
she said they would dumpster dive in gorcery store trashbins for old flower bouquiets. It struck me as a brilliant idea for
anyone who loves decorating with dead flowers, and I upped it by saying we should visit a florist. Ryan found a funeral
home florist, whose dumpster was overflowing with gorgeous centerpieces, and rescued many flowers for me. I want to get
flowers every week, this way.
Pillowmaking <3 starting to work on patchworks, upping the game!
VHS collection! We recently got a VCR and on saturdays we pick out a few movies, each, from goodwill for our date night :)

Stealing ryan's writing desk to draw and drink tea.
I love where we live, the small townships from the 1600s, tombstones of the confidants of george Washington, it's all
very surreal and dreamy, like a perpetual vacation, but this is our life. The stained glass windows were actually part of the library, with leather reading chairs and marble busts. New York is like nowhere else on earth, I am sure.
Where we watch movies on the floor <3 At night the candles are lit and there are considerably more pillows and it's like a small dream.
