my week in objects (mostly).

1. this old bronze bracelet from my mom.

{and the way it tarnishes and shines right up again after a day on the beach.}

2. this thirty-year-old owner’s manual.

{and getting to know it.}

3. lavender simple syrup in iced coffee.

{who knew? some of you!}

4. every perfect apricot.

{for being too many to count.}

5. these jellies.

{for beach days, especially.}

other things:

it’s not too late.

salon study.

hear to slay.

charred sweet corn for every meal.

consumerism competition.

a toast.

    Growing up in the Bronx we had two 1982 Volvo 240’s, one after the other (my uncle hooked us up; we were on a tight budget). I learned to drive on a bright red manual 240 sedan. My parents’ current car is identical to yours! I adore those cars, always felt super safe in their sturdy boxy frame.

    My one rec: check the oil level regularly and refill. If you ever have questions, feel free to reach out; my Uncle Lenny in Staten Island is an expert!

    And it’s not just a car, but a 90s Volvo station wagon (I think)?! That’s a dream!

    Have you bought a Volvo wagon? I’ve had a 2000 V70 for over 10 years and I absolutely love it!
