There are some people you just click with. You have so much in common with them. They often share your point of view. They just get you. And you get them.
My community in the world of photography, style and interiors are just like that. Except they are not my friends yet. They don't even know I exist. I follow their careers, opinions work and and lives online, via social media and through their companies websites.
So in this blog I will feature my nearest and dearest imaginary friends. The ones I admire the most. They inspire and encourage, like good friends should. Maybe one day I'll get to meet them.
All Photographs in this post by Elizabeth Kirby.
Today's imaginary friend is Elizabeth Kirby. She is a photographer, stylist, creative consultant and blogger. In her website she speaks about being inspired by the imperfect (see? She gets me!) and the mundane, wanderlust, the art of slow living and light. She also speaks about her love of farmers markets and flea markets, capturing small moments, intimacy, quiet beauty and simple adventure. About a rustic minimalism that balances the vintage with the modern. Come on! Don't you want her to be your friend too?
Her blog, Local Milk, features her family, retreats, recipes and travels, all exquisitely photographed. Posts are very intimate and open. They are also, intricately,and beautifully written.
I admire how she has built a life around her uncompromising aesthetic and beliefs. The Art of Slow Living is not only the theme of her business, it is what she believes and what she does. I want to live in her world and be her friend.
