lisboa

i went to spain & portugal with my family when i was 15. i remember a lot about spain – to this day i won’t forget my first taste of jamón serrano in a dark bar in seville or wandering around the alhambra… but i don’t remember much about portugal. i would really love to go back there, and especially to lisbon after seeing these photos by liivia

i love this picture

it also made me think of my nephew, who is 5 years old today. happy birthday theo! i asked him what he wanted for his birthday and he simply said, “cars.” he’s car crazy, that kid.

freedom day

it’s freedom day in south africa today, which also meant a very long and freeing weekend for whoever took off monday as i did. i filled my days & nights with a sleeping late, watching mad men & 30 rock, drinking tea and red wine and gin & dry lemon with friends, napping, eating eggs + avo on rye every breakfast, celebrating a birthday, beach walking etc… lit the first fire of the season – the days are getting shorter, colder and my feet are actually requiring socks in the evenings.
