Jessi Arrington's Human Rainbow

As soon as I heard, I dressed in RED and literally ran. I ran all the way from my house in Brooklyn Heights to the Brooklyn Bridge, and I was so early to the Human Rainbow event that I was literally the first one there. Me and the NY1 guy, who was there to put the rainbow on local TV. 

Jessi Arrington has always loved rainbows. In the wake of the tragedy in Orlando, she decided her colorful instincts could be put to an incredible good use. She planned a beautiful moment of community. People spanned the Brooklyn Bridge, arm in arm, wearing all colors of the rainbow.

We're going to link arms and show the world that love is brighter and bolder than hate. Every time. Even now. Tuesday, June 14, dress solidly in one bright color of the rainbow, and show up at the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge at 6:30pm.

Click over to the Human Rainbow page to hear Jessi talk about the project much better, in her own words. I know for my part that it was a moving experience to dress up, walk alone onto the bridge, and smile and hug hundreds of strangers. It feels good, and it feels important, to celebrate love.

We figured out how to find the actual middle!

Hello from Japan!

I am so excited to be in Japan. It's been at the top of my bucket list for a long time now! So far, this beautiful, organized and super-polite country has NOT disappointed. (alternate headline: my matcha green tea obsession continues!)

Fiona is a passionate teacher. She is warm, enthusiastic and a great listener. But you're well served to do more listening than talking! She's overflowing with knowledge to share.

This workshop was a brilliant day for me, because I got to "audit" it while I documented it! 

Aren't these hanging green things amazing?! They're kokedamas! I need them all over my house. Need! Eco-florist Gloria B. Collins created these gorgeous green miracles, and I'm absolutely in awe of them. 

The food was divine as well! Catered by Poppy's in Brooklyn.

Ana for Cup of Jo!

I recently shot some fun photos for Joanna Goddard on Cup of Jo! The girls were all wearing Hatch, who makes such stylish stuff. You can wear their clothes during and after pregnancy, or when you're not pregnant at all! Click through to see the whole post.
