Afternoon with Anais & Dax
We had our friends Anais & Dax over to our home in Echo Park recently for some coffee. As usual, we had some great conversations about what we've been into, what we've been reading, etc... and they took some really beautiful photos of our space.
We decided to share some of the photos and also tie in some of our current reading / inspiration selections. Hope you enjoy!

Reading now: Cherry by Nico Walker, who was a medic in Iraq and then dealt with PTSD and his opioid addiction. It’s bracingly funny, tender and dives into the dark heart of the country.
Watching: (On a brighter note!) High Maintenance; the writing of the show is such a beautiful love letter to New York, and it’s overall so fun and so clever.

Reading: Eager by Ben Goldfarb. All about beavers—how they restore ecosystems, raise water tables, replenish aquifers, retain nutrients and mostly just rule. I am a beaver believer.
