We need to work on her voguing

During Marlo’s birthday party a few of us were all holding cameras, and she didn’t know which one to look at. So she just stood straight like this, grinned and moved her eyes from left to right and back again. Like some weird animatronic child of the DSLR generation. Has there ever been a group [...]

Stuff I found while looking around

- This is what I always thought the future would look like. – Behind the scenes photos from the make-up artistry of Prometheus – 10 great TV spots directed by David Fincher – Oh, you have a herding dog, too? – Or just a plain old dog? – If at first you don’t succeed, try [...]

Two-three

Last night at Marlo’s birthday party when family members asked her how old she was she held her hand up just like this. You can see she’s trying to get that middle finger up there, she just doesn’t have the hang of it yet. Hey, at least she’s not holding up just her middle finger. [...]

Jean Jump

For some reason that kimono makes it seem like she’s about to enter a boxing ring. That’s what we need: a reality show where fashion bloggers show up and start hitting each other in the head with their five-inch designer stilettos. Kimono: Vintage (similar here) Jean jumper: Urban Outfitters (similar here) Heels: H&M (similar here) [...]

Newsletter: Marlo turns three

Dear Marlo, Today you turn three years old. This morning after you screamed, “MOM!” fourteen different ways, sometimes turning it into a two and three and seven syllable word, I finally got out of bed to go get you from your crib. You had your stuffed puppy wrapped around your head and wouldn’t look at [...]

Party hat

When someone in this house celebrates a birthday, EVERYONE participates. Don’t worry. We didn’t leave Coco out. She posed as the model for the custom piñata we had made.

Glowworm

Today Marlo turns three years old. All those limbs came tumbling out of my body at 1:53 AM on June 14, 2009. I’m just now starting to get my equilibrium back.

New Tunes – Local Natives

I was bouncing around some music blogs and playlists earlier this week when I came across this song and something about it crawled into my ear, down into my my belly and exploded. I didn’t even realize until I had listened to it for two straight hours that I saw Local Natives perform as an [...]

Picasso lake

Looking through my photos I found this one I took just after takeoff on my way to New York a few weeks ago. The periphery of The Great Salt Lake looks like it can’t decide if it wants to be water or land, and the effect is a piece of artwork. I fly so much, [...]

Turban Days

Every time Cami shows up to my house with a turban on (yes, she owns more than one) Leta usually says, “Um, Cami? You have something on your head.” And I’m like, Leta, at least it isn’t a dead animal. Dress: Urban Outfitters (similar here) Heels: Threadsence Purse: ASOS Turban: Vintage (similar here) Sunnies: ASOS [...]
