When I first heard the news today about Kate Spade, I was absolutely gutted. Then I felt silly- why am I crying over the death of a designer? But Kate was no ordinary fashion designer and, as with many women posting today, she and her designs were a touchstone throughout my life. I remember my first bag— a boxy black nylon classic, purchased at the age of 19, at the Pentagon City Nordstrom. I bought it with my little bitty salary from my clerkship at a newspaper’s D.C. bureau. I carried it with me on reporting assignments and I felt both chic and professional. I followed it with a messenger bag, which I carried, heavy with books, for the rest of college. When I got my first real job, I was thrown into a world of celebrity reporting. As I teetered along red carpets in my brand new black KS heels with a playful pinwheel at the toes, I felt a little less like an imposter. A pink KS agenda carried me through my first year in a PhD program.

Most of all, her products let me enter her world of whimsy. My friend Marisa and I reminisced recently about stalking Ben Harper at an Obama campaign event back in 2008. When we finally met him, he looked down at my metallic KS ballet flats and said, “I really dig the gold shoes.” Of course Ben would love my Kate Spades! It was a rainy day today here in NH, but just looking at my favorite KS piece, a hat that says “hello sunshine,” made things a little less gloomy. I fell in love with this hat, but it was sold out. I searched for years in vain, only for Joe to surprise me with a very gently used one he found.

So, thank you, Kate Spade, for making luxury more accessible, for transforming the seeming frivolous into something meaningful, for creating beautiful accessories that carried me from class to work to play, and for welcoming women to your heartfelt, encouraging, loving, and fun world. My heart hurts for the pain you had to keep hidden and the darkness you tried to fight, but I am grateful for all the times you brightened my day and this world. As a KS Christmas card I’ve held onto all these years says- “if I could, I’d give you... a cuckoo clock and a little more time..” R.I.P. you quick, curious, playful and strong woman.

SWIPE: Moonshadow is eight today (or around today- we only have an approximate idea of his date of birth, but we celebrate on May 27 each year)! I don’t know how it’s possible, but we love him more every single day. Just when I think I couldn’t love him more, he wakes me up with kisses and my heart swells. We’re so lucky to get to be his people! And he is such a good tolerant boy to put up with me making him pose in this hat every single year. Despite three moves across multiple states and a ton of stuff misplaced along the way, we’ve managed to keep track of this hat, which I bought for his first birthday! ❤️🐾 #birthdayboy #may27 #muttlove #partyanimal #dogbirthdayparty #birthdaytradition #perfectdog ..

Oh Ireland, my ancestral home and my physical home for a spell, I 💚 you. I am bursting with admiration for my passionate and powerful sisters in Ireland who protested, voted, and fought for years for this day. Go raibh maith agat to those who flew #hometovote and everyone who worked to #repealthe8th . Today I’m a #proudirishamerican, but more than that, I’m a #proudwoman . 🙏🏻💪☘️

#pregaming the pseudo-intellectual way. I also highly recommend prepping in the cheesiest way possible- with Lifetime's Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance. I'm a bit ashamed, but I think it's time for me to fess up: I am excited for this royal wedding when I've never cared a bit about the royal family before. Must be the #marklesparkle (or I've just lost my mind). To be clear: I still hate British imperialism, colonialism, princess fantasies, and privilege based on lineage, but I am here for a biracial American woman walking herself down the aisle (at least most of the way) and her Mom rocking her locs and nose ring. Also, Meghan's dress and #allthefascinators.

I'm spending this Monday reflecting back on the beautiful yoga and Ayurveda retreat I attended Saturday with Hannelore Moebius. Hoping to bring a touch of that day of rest and rejuvenation into the week ahead... and seriously- this space? Amazing. #yogaretreat #alnoba #ayurvedaretreat #sacredspace ..

SWIPE: Joe and I finished our stay in the Pioneer Valley at the truly inspiring, nourishing, and delicious #pulsecafema. Located on the site of a former bison farm, the new owners have transformed the land into a plant-based farm and cafe, now life-sustaining and free of suffering (a photographic tribute to the former animal residents now hangs in the bathroom). Beyond being moved by the ethos and mission, I'd dare say it's one of the absolute BEST vegetarian/vegan restaurants I've ever been to. Joe and I are already trying to figure out if it's too far a road trip just to go back for another meal! #transformtheland #thekindlife #veganfood #hadleyma
