DREAMING of waves lapping up the seashore, the throb of the sun against my back, and my flip-flops sweaty and sticking, flopping and flipping on my feet.

EATING  I'm dreaming of ice cream and honey with maybe and apricot or two on top?

READING  having just finished A Room with a View, (which was brilliant), I've started The Scarlett Letter.

WRITING to a darling friend, Lindsey.

CREATING an adventure booklet -- a little collaboration Lindsey and I have been working on. 

FEELING  Sounds:  hush and thrum of the dishwasher and a fuzzed radio; the sight of books and papers and the feeling of legs crossed and back bent and a clock tick, tick, ticking engulfing every feeling.  Time edging away; the thrum of life, my fingers tapping at the keyboard, daylight fading.

Life around here is bustling; I just arrived home from a piano competition and our flight tickets to visit the US and Canada have been booked yesterday.  We're moving countries (more on that some other time!), and life has been full of plans in the process of being finalized.

What does life look like where you are?



  1. Come visit Louisiana!!! Pretty please? And then you can stop by our farm and we can have a photoshoot and we can go to New Orleans :) But yeah, this is awesome and so are you. I love the way you calmly express yourself without making it a production. It's sweet and simple and best.

    Love you.

    p.s. you make my day every time.

    1. Heyyy, I'd LOVE to come visit you! I'm not, however, going to be anyyywhere near Louisiana or New Orleans. :( But if you're anywhere near Canada or NY in July, give me a shout.

      xx, Acacia

      ps YOU make my day every time.

  2. girl, you posts are always my favorite. and your photos, just gah.
    and life's been pretty much the same here. so many things going on all at once. :)


  4. Hey beautiful!
    Loveed this post! These photos are so deep and vibrant. Oh, and it's fun seeing my little bits of art in YOUR world! The wonders of the internet are boundless.
    Ummm... I really wish I lived in New York or Canada so I could see youuu! Maybe someday, though, we'll be in the same place at the same time. OR maybe if you move to the U.S. and there's an internship with I'm Kristen or Jessica Shae, we could BOTH go! And it would be the best day of my life... for real.
    An email should be heading your way soon! And keep your eyes open for a post really soon. Sometimes the only thing that motivates me to write is the thought of your comments. ;) Except the next post will be mainly a photo post. :)

    Love, hugs, and peach lemonade from across the sea.


    p.s. I'll have to hear how The Scarlet Letter is! Currently I'm still reading Sophie's World (taking soo long) and I just started Peter Pan... So, so quirky and fun!

  5. *contented sigh* can I just sit here and gawk I mean admire your incredibly gorgeous stills all the day long? Seriously you've got some incredible talent pretty lady and one day I wouldn't be surprised if I saw your artwork + stills in a museum. ;) love you lots deary.
    postscript: if you EVER find your way to Cali, my garden gate is always wide open and I'll set the tea things out. ;) xx

  6. Mm fruit and flowers and Starbucks and pretty pin boards and patterned socks. This post is full of my favorite things. You're coming to the US?! You should swing by NC. (;
