home is where i want to be pick me up and turn me round

i come home - born with a weak heart guess i must be having fun. well the less we say about it the better, let's make it up as we go along

feet on the ground head in the clouds i'm okay i know nothing's wrong.

got plenty of time got light in your eyes

and you're standing here beside me i love the passing of time

never for money always for love cover up and say good-night.

home is where i want to be but i guess i'm already there i come home - you lifted up your wings i guess this must be the place

i can't tell one from the other did i find you or did you find me? there was a time before we were born if someone asks, this is where i'll be.

we drift in and out sing into my mouth

and i am just an alley cat looking for a home to share the same space for a minute or two
will you love me until my heart stops love me until i'm dead? eyes tha…

baja style tempeh tacos

when the days are sunny and i have spent the afternoon outside, reading, crafting, and photo-shooting in the bright warm sunshine, my favorite thing to make for dinner is baja style tempeh tacos, from this book:

Romantic Vintage Dresses for Easter

when you were little, did you always get a new dress for easter?
it's one of the highlights of my childhood, that and winning a goldfish at the city park for finding the most easter eggs.
well, this is my easter treat this year!

addie was lucky enough (i never seem to be) to score these vintage 1960s dresses on ebay. ebay of all places?!! for hella cheap, i don't even want to tell you how much. i mean little. it's embarassing. in any case i begged her to borrow them to try on and photograph.

just for the sheer fun of it. it's easter. the holiday that you're supposed to get new dresses. i can't help but love them all the more; my heart cries out to them.

...these dresses were s…
