I don’t really understand fashion. Fortunately, I live in the Pacific Northwest.

  • Bad news: Rand met our friends' wee one, and they didn't get along at all.
  • Romance + bleak awareness of our own mortality is my absolute jam.
  • He said something to me today about his biggest regret, and it broke my heart. Mine are few and far between, but missing out on him would have easily been one.
  • I think they look like ballerinas. #jellyfish #vancouveraquarium #aquarium
  • These two. Proof that a 36-year age difference shouldn't stop you from being friends. #capilano #vancouver
  • Little man was super into Rand. I can relate.
  • He was pretending to be an #owl.
