September 17, 2009






i had to deal with something a bit unpleasant yesterday morning, and so i rewarded myself with a late afternoon fika at cafe pedlar … including frankie’s olive oil cake. mmm.

and i cannot stop watching THIS from one of my favorite bands, noah and the whale. i love love love it. watch the video, it will make your day.  so inspiring, amazing music, and i want to take photos that look like the images in that film. i can’t wait to get my hands on a copy soon.

have a good one.
