lorna simpson

i love these heads by artist lorna simpson especially because they remind me of your gorgeous fashion silhouette watercolours from long ago.
saw this site as well and thought of you.
finished surfing now off to the woods.

take me out to the ballgame


i don't think one can really feel like an angeleno unless they've been to a dodgers game and last night was my official venture into dodger stadium where they played the san francisco giants.
quite the experience even though i didn't eat the dog and they unfortunately lost.

kept thinking how happy T. P. would of been sitting here in this sea of blue and i hope one day he comes down to see a game.

after the game we went and hit the taco truck i took you to.
dodger game and the taco truck = living the dream.

enjoy the sandy beach sweetie!

i like my style


looks like another magical night for you...!
was just poking around, a fashion forum of sorts, found via cathy horyn.
a social network for people who like fashion, i'm kind of intrigued by their new book, a kind of self-published (self-edited?) fashion journal.

my weekend was parenting and working, but thursday last was the new pornographers (featuring sv's db - translate that one!) at the vogue.
i think they are playing in your neck of the woods tonight and tomorrow night, at the music box.

off to savary for two weeks, for rest and rejuvination and hopefully more than a little inspiration.

much love upon my return!

the Hollywood Bowl


last night went to go see the bird + the bee, she + him and the swell season at the Hollywood Bowl where we had a delicious picnic before the show under a big shady tree.

some good music and fine company made it the
perfect sunday outing after a crazy night of dancing .

how was your weekend?

bocce anyone?

darling ess,

it's hot here today and all i really want to do is sip crisp white wine while playing some bocce in the park with you ...maybe with a little of that pizza.
instead it was a workout and back to a ton of work. capital B boring.

hope your day has some dahlias in it.

i love l.a.


i'm sad too, but so happy for our few golden days of excess.
already plotting my return, singing our theme song, and wondering what ever happened to the girl in the two-tone swimsuit dancing in the hot tub at the end of this video?

(from the top: nuestro pueblo, hollywood farmer's market, and lockdown in silverlake...)
(and more of the towers here)

love always,
the ess

double double


i was going to see if you wanted some timbits, but then i started snooping and realized there are already 400 tim hortons locations in the US!
i guess i'll tuck the toque away, peel off the cowichan, and grab you a bottle of canadian club whisky...
(or maybe rye and ginger?)
(no, pilsner. goes better with a soccer match. rye is for curling.)

see you in the am, eh.


hats for you


have found you some sun hats so you don't get a sunburn in this hot california sunshine.

only ONE more sleep
and i get to see you right after the big brazil game tomorrow morning
+ then dumplings!

pinch me!

your gal friday
