My Sunday afternoons when I lived in DC were spent visiting a small vintage shoppe via a french bakery in my neighborhood. What I found most compelling was a chevron rug that clearly had many stories to tell considering its history. The shoppe keeper came to know me as the girl in love with chevrons & éclairs. As an ardent explorer keen to document beautiful moments, I create visual diaries that preserve my memories and hopefully inspire others.
