    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

it doesn’t matter what you wear … there’ll be dancing in the street

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg IMG_8.jpgThere are certain items of clothing that will always make certain girls feel a certain way. I can only describe that feeling as a sort of blissful transcendence, that nothing will make you feel more like your true self than when you are wearing that particular item. It can be anything from riding pants, to vintage shoes, to a little black dress. A tutu is that magical item for me.

Tutus are my kryptonite. Whether I see a skirt or a dress that is made up mostly of tulle or crinoline, I feel as if I must own it. Once I wear it, I only want to dance, dance, dance. I want to dance as if no one is watching, and not stop until I am completely exhausted. I want to run and hug everyone that I see because I feel so happy and comfortable when I am in one. I want to pair it with leggings and my prettiest coat, and show it off to the world. I would wear a tutu everyday if it were socially acceptable. I believe that I will always be a closeted ballerina, and I am O.K. with that.

Tell me, what is your favourite article of clothing?

    I can literally feel your happiness in this post! Leather pants are my “tutu” – they don’t make me want to dance but they do give me a bit of extra swagger and never fail to make me feel amazing!

      • Especially living in San Francisco! There is always a chance of chilly wind so a scarf is an essential :)
