Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. Josh and I are enjoying our vegan feasts and looking forward to a fun upcoming holiday season together (we got our first live full-sized Christmas tree this year and can't wait to start decorating!) I'm thankful to live on this beautiful planet, which hasn't yet been destroyed beyond repair. I'm thankful for my incredibly supportive family and friends and of course my one special guy who shares every day of my life with me and gives me almost anything I could ever ask for. Oh, and of course I'm thankful for my two little fur-babies, Lily and Misha, who make every day of my life a little sweeter and a little brighter!

Sweet Ólöf

The Blonde Redhead show was amazing, despite the two drunk and seriously annoying people standing next to us that were barely holding themselves up while screaming "Pink Love" at the band and spilling Bud Light on my Betsey Johnson dress.  
The opening act was the amazingly talented Icelandic singer Ólöf Arnalds, who I'm truly sad to say I had never heard of until the night of the show. We walked in as she was performing and I immediately melted as her sweet voice and delicate guitar strumming swarmed around the air. I bought her latest album Innudir Skinni on vinyl, which she graciously signed for me. Meeting her in person was definitely something to remember as she was quite enchanting and has an otherworldly beauty.

Blonde Redhead and Miranda July

I'm going to see one of my favorite bands, Blonde Redhead live this Sunday at The House of Blues downtown! I love this video starring Miranda July, who happens to be an amazing artist / filmmaker / writer. I highly recommend you read her hauntingly beautiful and slightly uncomfortable collection of short stories titled No One Belongs Here More Than You. *The website for the book is fantastic!
