The messes are what kill us.


I didn’t take any photos today but made tremendous progress on the home front.

A Craigslist listing deal turned out to be too good to be true. I thought I might have found a decent piece of marble for my “coffee bar”— it turned out to be cultured marble aka FAKE.

I looked through my photos for diary inspiration and found this. I will never tire of Dorothy Parker’s words, “It’s not the tragedies that kill us, it’s the messes.” 

Cheers to cleaning up the messes!
