Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

adventure: dreamathon

The other weekend we went to the Dreamathon in Salt lake and it was literally so cool! Basically there was an abandoned school that they let 150 artists come in and just do whatever. I didn't think it would be like, street art style, but it was! We decided it was the coolest art exhibit we have been to in a while.

Jake calls me "little bacon" now and it is my favorite thing in the world. Don't ask where bacon came from, because I don't even know.

"Dead cat society" hahahahah. I love it. I love it so much.

So, can we focus on how weird this wall-face is? Jake thought it was super creepy. I partially agree, but it's almost too creative to be creepy, ya know? Like gosh that horse-nose... I don't even know where people get these ideas, but thank heavens they do. 

The rainbow stairs were one of my favorite things! I hope one day when we have little bebes we can have some sweet rainbow stairs going to their room, or playroom, or something.

We saw this artist at a gallery stroll a while ago, and he was displayed at the dreamathon! He's Jake's favorite, so needless to say he was a happy camper. 

Ok, this room was my very favorite. It was so neat. The walls were all like the above, except in different colors. Also, the floor was a calendar. Soooo cool. 

Ok, this room probably doesn't look super cool, but it was! Everything was white except for like, certain spots. It was amazing! It was like, a small school heaven. 

This room had like, flower lights on the wall, and when you looked through the little plastic cards, it made them go all crazy. 

Hahahaha I love these. This was like a triangle tube, and you took a picture from the other end with a flash, and it turned out like this! How awesome!

I feel it's important to note that the people who participated in the Dreamathon are purely genius and we are literally so happy that it happened. Also, we are sad that it's over, but we really hope they do something like it again.

I've never been to an exhibit that was so inspiring! All I want to do now is make some cute stencils for our room.

new york: day six

This day is only important to note for three reasons.
#1: It was the day we went to Lauderee and I tasted the most amazing macarons I've ever tasted and I feel like that's an accurate statement, because for our wedding we tasted every macaron in Utah county until we found the best. These were better than the best. 

Like, I'm almost embarrassed that I'm this obsessed with a food item, but then I remember that I actually don't care. So, we got (from left to right) rose petal, cherry blossom, lemon, chocolate coconut, and chocolate citrus. THEY WERE SO GOOD. I didn't want to eat them right away, so I carried them all the way home, like a small child. Then I shared them with my mother because #bestdaughter. Then I cried when they were gone, and then I found a recipe online, and now I'm just waiting until I have two weeks of nothing so I can perfect the macaron.

This day was also important because #2: It was the last time we will eat Shake Shack (for a while...) and that's notable because I've never had better fries, shakes, or portobello mushroom burgers. 

Although, when I was ordering I asked for "A hamburger with everything on it, except for the meat pattie" (they were out of mushrooms) and the girl was having like, the hardest time understanding. I even told her I didn't eat meat, so I wanted everything that would come with a hamburger, just not the meat. Anyways, I ended up with like hamburger toppings on grilled cheese bread? It was strange, but good nonetheless. WE WILL MISS YOU, SHAKE SHACK. NOTHING WILL EVER REPLACE YOUR PLACE IN OUR HEARTS.

Also, #3: I bought my very first Mac product and I can't believe I haven't done it sooner. I got a lipstick and it stays on so much longer than my others. It goes on better and has a better color too. Plus, it wasn't as expensive as I've thought Mac products were all this time. So, win, win.

In closing, New York was so amazing and I'm so grateful to my wonderful inlaws for taking us with them. It was such a great experience and I only hope we will be able to move there for college, or what-be-it. Shout out to anyone who gets to go there often, or who lives there: I am jealous of you and please let me live vicariously through you. There is so much to do and so much to see, I just can't even handle it. We would move there in a second, and hopefully we'll get the chance someday when we're done with undergrad!

I'm glad we're home, though. It's nice to be back in our bed with our nightly routine of The X-Files and cuddling. I would love to live in New York someday, but for now, Utah isn't so bad :).
