I've been reading too many hand written essays and not enough high fashion glossies. I'm still craving nostalgia and great one-liners. I spent most of the weekend in the kitchen - snapping, stuffing, and stirring. A bit of time with my hands in the dirt. And a substantial amount of time laughing. And it seems these day's? It's all I sort of need.
Just wait, a few sunsets from now, I'll be in over my head with new places to eat, drink and shop and have totally forgotten about all this "settling down" business. Until then, if you'd like to feel a little bit like me. Grab a book, a bottle of wine, and settle between these sheets sometime before Midnight.
Martorana Contrada Ragabo Nero D'Avola 2006 wine, $10.00, Pike Street Beer and Wine (518 E Pike St (between Belmont Ave & Summit Ave) Seattle, WA 98122) They are unimaginably helpful and without pretense. The only wine shop I've been to where I don't feel completely brainless.
This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women, $10.00, Elliot Bay Books (101 S Main St Seattle, WA 98104). I'm challenging myself to an essay before the end of my 28th year. I have NO idea where to begin, but I'm swallowing every word in these pages for inspiration.
Italian 464 Percale Bedding, $19.99-$199.99 (On Sale!, On line only), Restoration Hardware (Pacific Place, Down Town Seattle). I am not a bed person. I don't do much in it but sleep. I'm not they type to nap and if I do it's on the kitchen counter or the couch. But these sheets? They. Are. Divine. And more often than not make for a crisp and cool nights sleep.
