Sam from the wonderful blog, day•dream, has been kind enough to nominate me for the Tell Me About Yourself Award. I was unable to find the original source of this award online (hence my lack of a link), so I’m going to bend the rules a little bit to turn revealing “seven things about myself” into “seven pictures that reveal something about me.” Here goes:

I recently read several articles discussing the prevalence of Mormon women in the lifestyle blogosphere. While I know very little about the LDS Church, and find generalizations to be pretty much useless in any context, I have definitely noted how many of the lifestyle blogs I love are written by Mormons – and, additionally, that my growing familiarity with these individuals through their writing, art, and photo curation has dismantled many of my ignorant assumptions about their religion.

The heat wave has finally reached California, and it’s so hot that I’m not even thinking about refreshing drinks any more – I’m just trying to stay as still as possible until it passes. One thing that helps is piling my curly mop of hair on top of my head until nary a strand touches my neck, and then turning my back towards a fan. Heavenly.
