Bright Copper Kettles

April 10th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on CRACKER, WHEN WE’VE BEEN OUT OF TOWN AND CRACKER IS FULL OF NEEDS AND LOVE AND SO HE CLIMBS ON TOP OF ME IN THE MORNING AND SHOVES HIS FACE INTO MY HANDS UNTIL I PET HIM. THAT IS MY ONE FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD. Bright paper packages tied up with string, also okay.

DON’T TELL ME WHAT I WANT

April 9th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Yesterday, I spent an hour unsubscribing from mass emails that, without my realizing it, create a low grade, every day consumer anxiety that is not only distracting but makes me spend my lunch break buying Pants I’ll never wear and adorable trashcans I don’t need. Does it feel different, you ask? Do I now feel lighter, cleaner? THIS IS AN EXACT PICTURE OF THE INSIDE OF MY BRAIN THIS MORNING:

JK JK IT’S STILL THIS

Hawaii Person

April 8th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

It only took me 35 years to get my long butt to Hawaii, and now that I have, I am now and forevermore a Hawaii person. (Our flight back was delayed 2 hours and we seconds from deciding to basically move there instead of just wait in the airport.) It’s stunning, soothing, tropical yet familiar, seemingly missing a lot of the nonsense of the regular world while still functioning. I need to go back yesterday. As a Hawaii person, I will talk about my trip to Hawaii at any given opportunity, I will steer all conversations towards Hawaii, I will crush macadamia nuts over all of my salads, I will wistfully sip pineapple Juice and think of it, I will spend my time planning next trips to it, money will be Hawaii money and Not Hawaii Money, there will no Time, only Hawaii and Not Hawaii.

Long lost treat

April 6th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Hawaiians do this beautiful, inevitable thing called Shave Ice that is NOT a slushee but actually shaved ice with sugar water flavors and ICE CREAM INSIDE OF IT ALL (pictured above: mango, pineapple and passion fruit with macadamia nut ice cream inside and a headache three hours later inside of THAT.) All of this is kinda neither here nor there, EXCEPT for the fact that at the Dairy Queen at Yaupon Beach were we went for our family reunion, they had a thing called a Mister Mistee, a slushee with ice cream inside of it, and I dreamt of it and wept for it and when they took it off the menu, I DEDICATED MY LIFE* to finding something like it in the world. Some 22 years later, I can finally rest, cuddled around a macadamia nut at the bottom of this Not Slushee.

* it’s possible I may have also set my sights on 1-7 other accomplishments BUT THIS ONE IS HUGE.

How to travel on a budget

April 5th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

1.) travel

2.) bring some money

3.) SPEND ALL MONEY ON TROPICAL OUTFITS AND A SURPRISINGLY MOVING LUAU RELOCATED INTO A MASSIVE BALLROOM BECAUSE OF RAIN

4.) stuff the pockets of your tropical outfits with meats and breads, live off of this for rest of trip

5.) GOOD JOB YOU TRAVELLED ON A BUDGET

Lifestyle blog fail

April 4th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

One of these is me trying to get a carefree picture of myself jumping on the beach. THE OTHER IS A PICTURE OF A ROBOT PLACED ON EARTH TO MAKE HUMANS FEEL BAD ABOUT THEMSELVES AND SUBSEQUENTLY SPEND HOURS TRYING TO DO THINGS THAT ONLY ROBOTS CAN DO, only to fail and fall face first into a vat of guacamole.

This bunny

April 2nd, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I just want to quit everything and just Be the giant seasonal festive bow atop my niece’s head. I want to hold her bangs out of her eyes / get a little bit covered in mashed up banana / sleep on the floor next to her bed.

this is who I am now (?)

March 31st, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

There comes a time in every person’s life when they realize they’ve become the person they swore they would never be. TODAY I FIND MYSELF IN THAT MOMENT, having just spent a slightly absurd amount of money on an intentionally sort of dirty looking, distressed sweatshirt that some girl in Los Feliz probably spent ten hours artfully covering in specks of paint, so that I might look like I am actually not myself, but Her.
