DFW | Jenny Lewis

After going through a brief bout of “WTF?!?” after my break-up in late December, I quickly found myself itching to surround myself with the things that bring me joy – yoga classes, hiking, friends, group dinners – oh, and the arts! Theatre, live music, visual art – you name it. Basically all the things I hold nearest and dearest to my heart that had been but on the back-burner during my relationship.

When I found out that Jenny Lewis (one of my all time favorites/spirit animal) was dropping a new album and stopping in Dallas on tour, I immediately bought tickets and asked a girlfriend if she’d be interested in joining.

It turned into one of the best weekends I’ve had in forever. Music, laughter, friends, art, tacos x3, yoga… perfection. I could try to write how much fun we had, but sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Here is our weekend in images.

Biking Through Copenhagen

I decided to make the trek to Copenhagen because it’s listed as one of the happiest cities in the world. Thus, we decided to do like the Danes do and bike throughout Copenhagen. On Sunday, our game plan was to start at the hotel and cycle 40km along the coast to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.

First stop was the harbor for people watching and lunch on Restaurant Skagen‘s patio. Cheeseburgers and coffee are an excellent combination. Trust me.


The view was so spectacular that I insisted we stop (on several occasions) to document. The water was so clear!




This is the Kusama Installation, “Gleaming Lights of the Soul.” It’s a tiny 4×4 mirror-lined room filled with tiny lamps hanging from the ceiling. You stand on a small platform surrounded by water and the lamps slowly change color, the reflections on the water and mirrors intensifying the experience. Only two people are permitted to enter the room, so it’s very intimate and calm.



Here are some shots from around Copenhagen. It’s truly a beautiful city.

Chihuly Exhibit at Dallas Arboretum

To welcome the first day of December (and Dallas’ 80 degree weather) we spent the morning at the Dallas Arboretum visiting the Chihuly Exhibit. Since so many of Chihuly’s sculptures have been inspired by nature, a botanical garden couldn’t be a more perfect setting.

Here are a few of my favorite sculptures:

Reeds (1995)


Dallas Star


Yellow Icicle Tower (This guy is 30 feet tall!)


Citron Green and Red Tower (1992)


Garden Glass


Blue Polyvitro Crystals
