Thoughtful lifestyle blog addressing such serious topics as new shoes, being human, and releasing creativity in a distracted world. 

AROUND TOWN

I live in Detroit. If you didn't know, now you do. Right now it's one of the hidden treasures of America. It's a big city with a very home town feel. It's full of driven, creative people full of dreams and new things are popping up everywhere.  Spent some time downtown and midtown this week with a friend. We got the loveliest margherita pizza at Supino's in the Eastern Market and then braved the PSYCHO wind on the Riverwalk downtown. My friend Miciah and I are both tiny people and we nearly got blown over. Literally.

 

You might ask why we would go to the riverfront on a day with 40mph wind and the answer is we survived the polar vortex and not only does nothing scare us (weather wise, duh- I'm still afraid of fire) but 40 degrees and sunshine is too much to resist after -16 for so long.

New construction in New Center. The old Fisher Building behind it looks like a proud parent.

It's April and there's still ice on the river. Craziness. But icy rivers are ridiculously gorgeous to look at. Oh and there were these brave little ducks bobbing in the water. I felt like i knew just how they felt. Freezing, but just so happy to see moving water.

Downtown Detroit is really pretty. I'm sure you'll get sick of pictures of it here soon but it's so pretty and exciting but not stressful like other cities. And it's just bursting with Detroit pride. Always a fan of that.

So this has been my uniform lately and basically the only variations have been swapping the sweatshirt for an everlane tee and generally not wearing those shoes cause they look like heaven and hurt like the devil.

This pizza. Oh my word. Funny story from dinner: i do a lot of the talking when i'm eating one on one with someone, which is weird cause i generally share the conversation weight equally with the people i'm with. But as soon as a sit down in front of food BOOM i can't stop talking. And then i have half my food to eat and the people i'm with are done. Happens all the time now. I need to shut up and eat but i just can't!

 

Where do you call home? I'd love to know. 

Happy Sunday!
