The Trifid Nebula in Stars and Dust // Kirkwood

Some days I feel that the universe is showering me with hugs, kisses, & good fortune. The past few days have been like that. I'm so grateful for everyone/everything:
  • Won a Rodarte for Target dress in the STOP IT RIGHT NOW giveaway for my mom! She was sick witha da shingles and through her pain she managed to shakily hold up a magazine and point to a picture of the dress. She asked me if I could get it for her, which in turn, broke my fucking heart because the magazine was months old and I had to tell her that they weren't for sale anymore. Mumsy is the most selfless person I know-- who never asks for a damn thing, and here she was... depressed, sick, suffering, and asking me for something I couldn't get for her. A few days later, while perusing one of my all time favorite blogs, I see that  Jayne was giving away THE DRESS, in HER SIZE! Too poifect! Thanks, Jayne. I'm so grateful. I plan on surprising her with it tonight ♥
  • Met a slew of interesting new friends at the Kentucky Derby event and somehow managed to win best dressed couple?! It may have been fixed since our hostess was a judge. Either way, I'm super jazzed on the prizes: a massive bottle of Julep Maker's Mark and 2 custom dress shirts. I've totally been wanting a sleek black dress shirt to wear with my skinny ties.
  • Flowers from cute clients
  • Six year anniversary with R coming up on Saturday. So lucky to be able to hang out with my best friend everyday.
  • Speaking of space... another client of mine had her host-pathogen microgravity experiment fly on the Discovery mission STS-131!! She brought me back a custom patch and a NASA coin that was aboard Discovery. My mind is still reeling from the fact that I own shit that's been up in orbit. Nuts.
Okokok, enough mushiness for now. I like to keep tally of good things to remind myself that life is pretty fine when I'm feeling dark.

What are you grateful for today?


  1. hell yes for best dressed.

    and that nasa stuff is awesome, what a smart lady client

  2. Hey yes congratulations on the best dressed!

    Today I am grateful for another (amazing) Nasa/Jak and Jil pic, I just love them... There's a few recent astronomy photos I've been imagining into pairs - the spiral galaxy and some chloe camel maybe, the pulsar's hand and those balenciaga sandals?

    A list of good things is the best kind of list. x

  3. The NASA bit is positively amazing. I'm jealous!

  4. i love your mother and her penchant for leopard + rodarte + target.

    i want to make her soup...


The divine PB&J in me, salutes the divine PB&J in you.
