Spent Saturday exploring the National Cathedral. (It’s truly stunning and invokes such quietude.) There was also a remarkable art exhibit on prayer , an international collaboration between Egyptian and American artists.
chocolate chip banana bread - baking is the best during rainy nights and a good cure for angsty feelings.
It was a good weekend. Busy, but good. I’m looking to recharge this week.

Electric Lady - Janelle Monae
so much yes. she’s an amazing performer live, too. so much fangirling. even the obamas can’t stop gushing over her.
- two toasted slices of that crusty, tuscan bread that’s always a sturdy, chewy vehicle for good sandwiches
- lots of basil pesto on one, lots of spicy hummus on the other
- heated up the grilled eggplant curry i made last week and tucked it in with some extra cilantro (tomato-y, garlicky, onion-y goodness)
- sprinkled with feta
bed, window, homemade iced coffee, cinnamon raisin toast, and a book. happy and invigorated.
getting my morning caffeine on at lamplighter roasting company in richmond. minus the excess of confederate flags and lack of so diversity, richmond is this beautifully quirky little city full of homey and delicious restaurants, burgeoning microbreweries, interesting hiking spots, and funky architecture. our airbnb was this gorgeously spacious apartment, walking distance from the museum of fine arts.
i felt so free and relaxed. wishing i could relive it again.
