Bodhi, Thai Me Up, and Being Inspired

10/21/2021

I originally created this website/blog in the late 90s (ack!) because I wanted to share the awe-influencing things I see around my part of world (and my travels) so we can be inspired together. I stopped featuring places a lot, and don’t blog much except for inspiring photos, but… this place was pretty cute! The plant wall was inclusive of 2 monstera deliciosas and the patio was surrounded by vines, lights, and bamboo.

My eve during the week to go out alone and to hang with a friend is Wednesday — it makes for the perfect middle of the week re-center and is a great time to catch up with best friends. I have a toddler, a preteen, 3 bonus kids, and 3 jobs — haha. It’s hard to take breaks for art or fun but so important.

Bodhi is an adorable Thai Bistro Bar with delicious Thai food, craft cocktails, craft beer, and loads of plants.

Bodhi is located at located at 922 Massachusetts Avenue – Indianapolis (at the northeast end of Mass Ave adjacent to the Bottleworks District).

Mew for Today: Tuesday Tea & Baby Pink

09/28/2021

It’s not Monday, but it still seems far from Friday.

Tuesday.

It doesn’t blow my hair back with force, but it is full of opportunity for finding treats, teas, and treasures. My favorite new Tuesday ritual is to make a mood/inspiration board to inspire myself for the rest of the week~

Go on and make a cup of TUESDAY TEA while you look for inspiring mood board photos~

I Like to Draw Picnics

05/11/2021

I’m not really sure why I’m drawing them now but you know picnics have just hit different since Covid, huh?

Not to be extra, I am just as happy with grabbing a bag of food or a pizza and heading to the park. That’s the best thing about picnics, they can be made out of literally anything. You can be as fancy or as low key as you want and it’s still fun.

What’s your favorite think to take to a picnic?

I’m going to offer postcard packs of these soon! Stay tuned. xx

What? Neko Neko Cheesecake?

Savour the fresh baked flavor of the bread, made with 100% Japan-grown wheat flour, mixed with creamy milk.
Every mouthful of the milky soft bread is rich and moist. Nothing but carefully selected Japanese ingredients. The succulent bread explodes with flavour with every bite. Come on in and try it. It’s purr-fect.” – Neko Neko Shokupan

Fabiola Jean-Louis is Rewriting History

07/07/2020

“The series speaks to the shocking treatment of Blacks throughout history and the trauma inflicted on their bodies as juxtaposed with the abstract idea of black freedom,”

“Simultaneously, it engages with a vision of the future—one of hope, resilience, and justice.”

“I have an obsession with exposing what lies beneath the surface. It is my constant examination of the spirit, and no doubt – my intense curiosity with the cycle of life and death. Everyday, I think of peeling away layers, and imagine what I will find. I know that what I am looking for is not tangible, and with all my years of studying science, not even it can help me describe this thing. When I do finally get to a place of imaginative clarity, the visions are so intricate, and intertwined, that I find them too complex to communicate through my work. I am not YET skilled enough to show you all that I see. I work to break that barrier each, and everyday.”

I cannot fawn over Fabiola’s rewriting of history enough. I know you agree. Please check out more of Fabiola’s work here.

Le Game: Apps I love Right Now

06/26/2020

Slowly

Want to have penpals but not into the whole stationary, stamps, post office thing? You can also have penpals directly from your phone! Slowly takes 1 day to deliver your letter to someone from around the world. You can do a match yourself or the app can give you a random match based on your preferences. I’ve already gotten around 20 penpals and the slowness of the sending of your letter and the slowness of the response arrival makes you really consider your letter more than you would a text or email. After writing you can also swap a photo (only if both penpals agree). I adore it.

Florence

I love these graphic novel styled games. This one is about a girl falling in love and the soundtrack and puzzles are sweet! I have quite a few of these styles of games and this one is very well done.

Adorable Home

The purpose of this game is to collect love. Your partner goes to work and you will collect love from your cat/s as well as from the weather, from your garden, and by making bento boxes for your partner’s work day. It’s so cute and almost an exact interpretation of my life, haha.

Qeepsake

This is a baby book app. It has journalling prompts with questions each day and you can attach a photo. Personally you can use this to journal about anyone (or any pet). I have a journal going for my daughters Beatrice and Colette. I love that I can look back on my answers to questions I wouldn’t have even considered writing about on my own. You can also pay to print a book of each person you kept a journal about. The entries are usually just little blurbs but they are special memory bites for your future reminiscent appetite.
