Hello new blog followers! I'm so excited to have you here. I thought I'd welcome you with a little photographic look at my world.
First, though, lovely proof that spring has finally come to Michigan: the blooms outside one of my favorite Grand Rapids joints, The Winchester.
These people made me. I look just like the girl on the horse.
Above photographic evidence to the contrary, I was not raised by cowpokes. But I was raised in this cowpoke-friendly state. It's not all mountains, though. There's also a fancy hotel in which you once could have traditional British tea near paintings by Maxfield Parrish.
And there's a bug museum.
I have always been an obsessive reader.
One day I ended up here, and stayed for a long time.
I once went on vacation to Prague for a week, on my own. I brought home this Alphonse Mucha poster and had it put in a fancy frame in Astoria, Queens.
I met a boy. I fell in love. I moved to the state shaped like a mitten.
I have a problem with things that smell good that is somewhat under control.
Obviously, I love vintage clothes, but I also like this stuff.
Here's a peek inside one of my closets.
This is how I like my coffee.
It makes me feel like this.

Cocktails are my favorite, but beer is nice, too.
