This. This is Marfa.

A town where the thing it's most known for doesn't even lie within city limits, and where you can find a little slice of San Francisco in the form of $6 iced coffee and fancy toast, where half the restaurants are run by the same dude and take "cash or check only, please" and then give you change in the form of a $2 bill and a dollar coin, where you miss the infamous porridge because the lady who makes it was dj'ing a wedding the night before, and where the bar is having a special on "gluten free, naturally sweetened cider" but is forever out of miller high life, where you can end up in an airstream bodega store that sells a wide selection of VHS tapes, Amy's canned soups, plastic dinosaurs turned into succulent planters and a plethora of other survival necessities, and where almost everything is only open for three hours a day, two days a week, and where you feel like you're in a giant art installation -- but you don't mind because you said yes to always going, and you found a magical bus to drink tecate out of a bottle in and the best bookstore of your life and you maybe never want to leave.

Marfa you're all sorts of weird and magical and I love you.

"If I found myself in San Francisco on Monday could I crash on your couch?" 

 

Because sometimes life gets a little rough and you find yourself on an unexpected adventure with the absolute best of unexpected friends. We walked the city streets, stopping only for favorite cocktails and overpriced cans of sprite and sharing favorite Drake lyrics that best sum up moments of life. And then we found ourselves wandering aimlessly through mausoleums, trying to remember the lyrics to that one Fall Out Boy song, talking mostly dreams, realizing that we've got it pretty good and that maybe, just maybe, the space between where we are and where we want to be isn't so scary after all. 

IT'S BEEN A WHILE.

Well, what started as a seemingly fleeting dalliance with flowers has officially turned into a full-blown love affair. And through a series of fortunate events, I got the opportunity to put together some arrangements for Bourbon & Branch last week. It was a bit terrifying to say the least, but I'm so happy with how they turned out, and am super looking forward to being able to experiment and create more fun things for them!

Anyways, I've missed this space and will be (hopefully) returning to it on a more regular basis. But for now it's back to eating all of the chocolate Easter bunnies :)
