Kevin E. Taylor and Sarah Smith @ Swarm

There's an awesome show up at Swarm Gallery in Oakland right now. I was there gallery-sitting the other day and here are some photos I took of the work. Great stuff!

Pretty Pretty

This post is really just because I wanted to put up this super pretty picture of my dream living room. I can't remember where I found it so I apologize for not giving more info about it. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Birthday + Beers

This weekend I'll be way up north with a few of my friends to celebrate our friend Owen's 30th birthday. We've all known each other for about five years now, having studied abroad in Italy together. This group of friends means a lot to me because I feel like they understand me better than almost anyone else (except you, Amy). We are also bonded by a serious, serious love of drinking. And so, to commemorate this beautiful birthday event, I give you an awesome photo of Owen from a few weekends ago:

Happy Birthday Owen!

Not A Hippie

I've been struggling a lot lately with what I want to do with my life. I got my fancy degree, started a business, and yet I knew it didn't really matter. I still didn't feel fulfilled. (It is at this point that I would like to interject that I am not a hippie so don't be scared if you aren't either.) If I made a ton of money, would I feel better? What would I do with the money? Am I happy yet? Is happiness a goal?

Bleh. These and bajillions of other questions were constantly running on a loop in my head. Then I happened upon this book by Eckhart Tolle. In it, he says the things we all know to be true. Money doesn't matter and neither do things. If you are constantly seeking things, you'll never find happiness. For some reason, the way he writes and the examples he gives are totally speaking to me. I can feel my life changing while I'm becoming more conscious. If this is something you think you might be into, I highly recommend it.
