don't let it break your heart

Pretty things from June/July <3

I saw a bride and groom and a dog walking down the street this day. It was just the 3 of them. He was holding her small bouquet, and it was the sweetest thing to see.




Maynard's again and I don't think the owner realizes I come here sometimes just because it's so pretty

We just came back from this new diner in town and stopped by a gas station to pee. We (aka I) wanted to take faux candids and this one was actually a legit one. Shoutout to my killer parking job too amirite!


Been feeling this a lot lately. Carrie always serving it up to me straight.

I'm spending the next week in Savannah for an art camp (even though I'm taking writing and photography) at SCAD which I'm super duper stoked about!!! Can't wait to write about my experiences when I get back!! I started packing when I noticed I literally only wear black and or white shoes.

Title: "Don't Let It Break Your Heart" by Coldplay. Mylo Xyloto is seriously full of so many hidden bangers. I also can't get enough of Chris' dancing.

Not only is the new Beach House crystal pure, but it's also oddly affectatious. It sounds like a beginning, a journey, and an ending all in one. It's effervescence is oddly what makes it so wistful. But the most poignant moment came to me when I made the mistake of reading this spectacular Eddie O'Keefe poem while listening to this song.

A Poem For My Unborn Children (Eddie O’KEEFE)

hey kids
it’s your old man
it’s june 12th, 2015
i’m 26 years old
almost 27
i’m writing this poem
on chateau marmont stationary
which is only 10% an affectation
i would have used my phone
but they’re playing music from it right now
(i know what you’re thinking
your dad wrote poems at hotel parties
but trust me,
it’s not what you think)
i just want to tell you that
i can’t wait to meet you
one day
though that might not be for a long while
i hope you understand
i have dreams and art in me
that i need to raise first
before you become my reasons for
i promise to love you
more than i have ever loved anything
i promise to put you first and do my best
i’m going to be strong and just and like a lion for you
i want you to inherit the best world possible
just wait and see
this place of the living is
and you’re going to like it when you get here
but it’s complicated
and there are things about it that aren’t quite fair
there is stuff i’d prefer you didn’t know or see
but i can’t protect you from it all
i can’t protect you from any of it, really
it can be hard
it can be ruthless
it can break your heart and your spirit and your back
but then there are
like the one i’m in the middle of right now
here at this
corny magic hotel
that give you a feeling in your chest like
the entire world is pulverizing
your heart
with love
and you’ll find yourself writing a poem
to your unborn sons and daughters
in the middle of a party
on a kethcup stained couch
as mr. tamborine man plays
and you’ll
I BAWLED at the beauty the combination made! Got me thinking about a lot of things like how recently the thought of having kids in the future seems less ideal than it did before because now I'm selfish and I have SO much I want to experience and accomplish and push into the world before I bring kids into the equation. And conversely, I just started reflecting on the sacrifices parents make in general and how much hard work they put in just to provide the best life possible for you. My heart just soared and gained an additional pulse to the already existing one, kinda reminiscent of How The Grinch Stole Christmas (the Jim Carrey version, of course)
