On Life

Thanksgiving thoughts on joint custody, good parenting, and being a single mum.
My children grew up, all at once, the day before Thanksgiving.
Comparing my geriatric pregnancy in my 30s with my youth, I look back with curiosity for how age shapes my prenatal experiences & connection to the world around me.
A reflection on the physical, mental, spiritual, and political differences in being a young mom versus a geriatric one.

Weekend 8.27

My kid did *that* teenager thing, plus the best GANNI boots (on sale!!), a not-so-kid-friendly game, ugly-cute shoes & perfume a la Paris 2003.
It's a teenager thing.

Weekend 8.20

A Turkish gulet cruise is the best vacation, plus the Cool Girl style I *will* be copying, throwback barrel jeans, & preparing for fall fashion.

Wine and cake, what more do you need?

Do they work, how to wash them, and the best pairs for every, uh, flow.
I can be fierce & confident in high-heeled booties + a leather jacket, I can be fun & whimsical in floral cut-out dresses + bright heels, but I think the "moment between the poses" outfit for me, when I'm not "on" is a perfectly broken-in pair of jeans, comfy top + sneaks.
"Not the blog aesthetic, but I had to send you these photos because they are FIRE," my photographer wrote to me before sending over the latest gallery from our shoot. She was right. The pictures were something special. But, there was one picture in particular (edited in black and white) where I'm sitting in my Abercrombie & Fitch Dad Jeans...
