what was left of my amazing birthday cake after dinner...maire made the chocolate cakes and beth made the buttercream frosting & decorated it. I am very lucky to have such fantastic friends! mia and jaime were there to celebrate too...maire made a gorgonzola/oyster mushroom risotto and a spinach/apple/walnut/gorgonzola/balsamic vinegarette salad. It was such a good birthday! we went to see weekends play at a house show afterwards, which was a lot of fun too!
I heart ikea....good design, cheap prices! thanks to my parents for a very useful and beautiful birthday present!
all in all, it was a very good day (the 24th, my birthday, was- this post is a little late!). yay for being 22!

I made these collages last semester- they're really the only thing I feel like working on right now. I will upload more once I make more!
p.s. some of the colors are a little faded looking online. I apologize!

I am so happy right now to be re-opening my blog and re-making it in every way and hopefully actually keeping it up from now on. i was just reading a post on design*sponge from the weeders digest column about the sad scarcity of plants in the wintertime, and was glad to look right and see my little flower seedlings hangin in there. I got the seeds for free at Artscape last summer from the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation (I think?), and they have been kinda pathetic, honestly. Nonetheless they're alive now, despite my neglectful behavior with them. I am amazed at their strength, and hope that one day they will actually bloom. I am glad it is a real possibility. (isn't it great how sometimes you write things and realize they could be one huge metaphor for something else? i think that's great.)
