Prince Party

Last night, Erin and I went to Kate’s Prince-themed birthday party at Flicker Bar. I honestly can’t think of a better way to celebrate life– your own, Prince’s, or just generally– than dancing with Purple Rain projected on loop and a steady stream of glittery cocktails. This might be the only Prince party in history […]

Inauguration Weekend

♥︎Resist: Thank you Desert Island, Françoise Mouly, the artists, and the cool people/places that distrubted this. Jessica was able to get a copy at Avid Bookshop before they were all snapped up and reading it brightened a bleak day. Mooost of the comics are by women; all are choice. ♥︎Athens Day of Resistance: Good vibes, […]

Hello, 2015!

I still haven’t collected my thoughts on 2014 but I couldn’t wait to ring in the new year with fancy champagne and a new list of goals. I think this year is going to be amazing. We splurged on a bottle of Moët & Chandon for New Year’s Eve and were delighted when it was […]
