a little on my lately and the mjölk book


Two weekends ago now,
we spent a couple days in a small
cottage alongside a massive lake.
A place we’d never been,
but hope to return.



We ate dinner and we met friends,
and it was extraordinary.


We bought fish directly from
those that fished it.
We spent the day with the sun in our eyes
and the shoes off our feet.


We swam in that very large lake,
we walked for coffee near dawn.
And we spent time giggling with these two.


It was one of those weekends
that felt like all the perfect parts of summer
rolled into two short days.
One of those weekends
that July and August are made for.


Too, we came home with the Mjölk book.
It’s the first in a run of coming volumes
inspired in part at least by those self-published books
you find in Japanese boutiques.
And I think by craftsmanship and design.
And by passion and travel too.


And I’ll tell you what,
it’s beautiful.
Find it here.

    I absolutely love the idea of these Kinfolk dinners – you are so very lucky to have them on your side of the pond. They should be encouraged to come over here and break down some of our British reserve!!
