happy birthday, lana !

the longest day of the year belongs to you, lana!!

i've been riffling through mom + dad's photo collection
and you and dad have the absolute sweetest series of photos together
man, oh man, you were a cute kid
and dad had serious killer 70s style...

i miss you all the time
i think we should make a 5 year goal
let's live in the same city for a period of time within the next 5 years
i realize this could mean i have to find a way to deal with crazy cold weather
OR you have to find a way to deal with amazing california climate

i love + cherish the friendship we have. i have enjoyed what
it has morphed into over the past few years 
you inspire me

your birthday package is 80% complete
but will be on the way soon

i hope you eat cake all day long
i love you, lanaloo

get a room, make a show

happening this weekend in reno !!

i've been meaning to check this out for the past few years...
 this year it just so happens i am supposed to be reno bound this weekend.  perhaps it's meant to be!


NadaDada Motel is an art show where artists rent motel/hotel rooms and create their own galleries. No curators, no rules, no juries, no bullshit.

Get a Room! Make a show!

the new york times covered this event in 2009 - art canvases that include shag carpet

here's their facebook fan page

+ schedule of events

bows & arrows grand re-opening

so incredibly proud of and happy for trisha + olivia and their new space
if you haven't checked them out yet... just wait until you see, taste, feel, drink, eat for yourself

the grand opening was last saturday
and the turn out was brilliant - all sorts of people, families, midtowners, and beyond
and i'm happy to report i have finally 
tried a fat face dish (besides their amazing pops)
the fig sliders! so good!!

and in speaking with the adorable face behind fat face, jaymes,
i learned that an eggplant meatball (veg) sandwich was coming soon
y u m

i sampled their impressive beer selection
hung out with some of my favorite folks
chilled on the patio 
and took in all the positive energy + good vibes

patio space before the opening

eli and i spent the evening on opposite ends of bows hanging + chatting + drinking
(this happens frequently - we go to social events together and hardly spend any time with each other)
so it wasn't until the end of the night that we both realized neither one of us could
drive... so papa clay took us home

 jesse + sophie patio hanging

it was olivia's birthday the following monday, so the featured artist, hilary pecis, 
surprise olivia with two home made cakes.  so sweet.

and here's hilary's work hanging on the white wall gallery space @ bows

they are getting some well deserved press:

congratulations bows collective!

the viceroy

bathroom @ viceroy

hit up one thrift store on the way out of town

and a beautiful drive back to la

stumbled upon a random dinosaur sculpture park during the drive

i forgot just how much i love being in the desert
i guess it makes sense... i spent the first 16 years of my life living in 
serious desert...

it was such a relaxing amazing love filled weekend 
 i got to spend time with friends + family + my darling nephew, jad
more photos soon
