creature of habit.

i think this has been my breakfast every single morning 
since summer began.
what can i say?
when i find something i like, i stick with it.
with all the delicious summer berries to choose from, 
that is about the only thing i have mixed up.
strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
and occasionally blackberries or even bananas.
mmmm.  i love breakfast.

i want my house to be just this simple.

if i could have fresh flowers in my house every single day, i would.
florist.  someday.

i will just go ahead and come clean.
i love donuts.
so, so much.
so much so that i have hara donuts in tokyo bookmarked for
 "just in case i visit tokyo someday"...
i might have a problem.

can't get enough.

sometimes i wish i lived somewhere that i could 
grow peonies in my front yard.
they just make me so happy.
you know what else makes me happy?
this is the only time of year we get them, 
so we have spoiled ourselves a few times lately.
we steam them, then throw them on the grill 
for a few minutes 
and then eat them with garlic mayonnaise.
yum, yum.
oh, to live like it was summer always...

because there is nothing quite like eating outside, 
under globe lights.
and good friends and good eats, to boot.
let's plan something.

i just really like this picture.
makes me want to chop my hair.
{from useful guilt}

i think i could live on toast and good cheese.
this looks so very delicious.

the light, the black wall, 
the simpleness of this little corner.
i'll take it, please.

one more for my summer wishlist.
for the beach.
because you can never have too many bags.
i'll just have to try and make my own...
