Lights in August

A new month brings many new beginnings here at Zelda and Scout. Zelda has bid farewell to our beloved Bushwick and started a new chapter in Crown Heights. Scout is adding a new roomie (and her puppy!) to the mix. And as we approach this blog’s first birthday, we’re spending a lot of time thinking about how we do what we do here, and how we can make the next year even more exciting. In short, on many fronts, we are in need of a little inspiration. Here’s what’s been keeping us going.

Quotation: “Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?” The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt
