Molly and Auston are dear, dear, friends who love making silly faces together, turning discarded furniture into modern re-purposed relics, and playing with their pup, Olive. Molly’s going to be giving birth at literally any moment (she’s just past her due date) and we all can’t wait to welcome the newest member of the Sligh family into the world! Best Christmas present ever. Hands down.1 Comment »
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
I’ve never been much of a homebody… but something about winter’s bite makes me perfectly content with staying in, making mulled wine, and catching up on all those books I bought over the summer but never got to. Last night as I was riding my bike into town I watched people stringing up lights, and decorating their yards with wooden reindeer and other knick knacks. I rode home down a street lit up like a roman candle on the fourth of July.
We’ve had some clear blue sky days in Seattle lately. Perfect for walks around the lake with a mug of chai, taking photos with ice skates on, and watching the sun go down at Golden Gardens next to a bonfire.
// I hope you’re staying cozy.No Comments »
During my time in Bangladesh I spent a couple days in Korail one of the largest slums in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Sweat made my scarf stick to my face as the afternoon call to prayer echoed from a nearby mosque and five little boys giggled at me. Soon they were showing off. Shimmying up trees and navigating their kites to the sun. Small schools of children ran everywhere–over piles of feces and disregarded knick knacks, and through streams of dirty water. They made kites out of tin cans with re-purposed string. Flies bit at their knees.
They taught me something beautiful. Despite their situation– living in temporary housing made out of sheet metal– eating just a couple handfuls of rice a day and having a garbage dump for a playground– they still had smiles on their faces. And for that, I will always be grateful.5 Comments »
