My personal definition: tumblr.
This past week, I received a tumblr inbox message from a follower of mine expressing her disappointment in my blog. She explained how it neglects to display any acts of good or charity, and how it instead glorifies an ignorant, Kinfolk-esque life. As I read the message, I was initially taken aback. How could someone see me as so shallow? Am I truly that uncaring? In short, the answer is no. I am not uncaring, I’m simply a blogger with alternative motives. My blog only exposes one facet of myself. Yes, I volunteer in my community, and yes, I love helping others. But I’m not going to post that on my blog because that isn’t what it’s all about. So, I will only publish images that correspond with my taste. Tumblr is my creative space, and I plan on keeping it that way. I will be who I am outside of my blog, but I hope to remain true to my appreciation for all things simple.
I love food. I love eating good food, I love looking at food, and I love cooking food with those close to me.
I love cities. I love the crowds, I love looking at people around me and wondering what they do with their lives, and I love the unique bouquet of buildings.
I love architecture and interior design. I love clean lines, I love rustic edge, and I love worn leather, darkened wood, and exposed brick.
I love nature. I love the natural formations of the mountains, I love the dirt on my hands, and I love the sound of water.
I love travel. I love visiting new places, I love immersing myself in new cultures, and I love sitting in foreign airports wondering what I’ll be doing next.
I love fashion. I love putting pieces together every night, I love finding $5 Ferragamo wool cardigans at thrift stores, and I love giving fashion advice to those who ask.
I love relationships. I love laughing with my family, I love enjoying the simple pleasures of doing nothing with my friends, and I love that warm feeling of pure happiness to have Andon in my life.
