anywhere but here monday

it's absolutely freezing in dc on this sad, sad monday morning (unlike other places, like, say south africa!!!), and i'm feeling some serious wanderlust. although i have a rotating mental list a mile long of places i'd like to go, um, now, iceland is always in the top three. i'm either one-eighth or one-sixteenth icelandic (i forget), a heritage i'm super proud of (one time in undergrad i had an assignment that involved heritage, and when i told my professor that i was icelandic he said "of course you are!" it was awesome). iceland seems breathtakingly beautiful, don't you think? and if that isn't enough, it also has a 99% literacy rate. so it's mysterious, wild, and well-read. sold.
inspired by iceland video from here

fun fact: this song by emiliana torrini is my very. favorite. song. ever.

cheers, loves


  1. This song is my go to happy-dance-just-gotta-shake-it song. I LOVE IT. Great minds, my dear. Great minds.

  2. Adorable. Are you surprised I'm also totally obsessed with going there? Ever since Grammy and Grampa came back from that trip and said everyone looks like me there. =)
