♥ just like the days, no two sunrises are ever the same.

i step out onto my front porch every morning around 5:45 to water my plants,
and i am always pleasantly surprised and utterly delighted by how dreamy the
sky looks. the cotton candy clouds. the hopeful glimmer of light through
the trees. the calm and peaceful neighborhood, still asleep.
such beauty, such majesty. no filter needed.

♥ book review: the grey ghost: new york city photographs.

i was recently sent a copy of the grey ghost, featuring the haunting black and white
photography of dan winters.  with most of the shots taken between the years 1987 and 1990 
when winters moved to new york at age 25, this book is a celebration and exploration
of the city that never sleeps.

the mesmerizing cover is textured and brilliant in an art-deco style.
the inside pages, most of which include a photo on one side and a white page 
on the other, allow you to view the works without distraction. 

the photos capture both the every day hustle and bustle of the city
and the glimmer of beauty in stolen moments that only someone
with a trained eye and a quick reflex could catch.

this book is a wonderful reminder of how much beauty you may find
right outside your doorstep.

♥ go tell it on the mountain.

happy wednesday!

we have been climbing a quick and steep path up the side
of the blue hills after work this summer and it has been  at times, 
both grueling and rewarding ;)

 the view is so breathtaking- we can hardly believe we
live just minutes away. the cooler air is a welcome change, 
and we are blessed to capture the remaining sunlight in 
such a beautiful location.

i got my hair cut over the weekend and was happy 
to have nick snap a few pictures of it from behind!
it's definitely more manageable in the morning-
and a flattering cut that makes me feel the
most myself! i heart my hairdresser, leo,
she is a true artist!!
