Actress. Mom. The Detroit wheel.
Back in #nyc. Stars in my eyes and on my dress. The day is clear and sunny. And so am I. For now. 🌟
🌙 Completing the #brianbowensmith trio. I am partial to all he does. And especially ones he takes of this one right here. I look like I have a very glamorous headache. I don’t. I don’t get headaches much. My whole family gets horrendous headaches. I did as a child. Til college. Now I will only get some sinus pain. Trigeminal neuralgia. But that has let up. However, my neck is a constant discomfort. I struggle to keep that furry head on my frame. Tense. Anyhow. That was a bit of a shaggy dog tale. 😴. Portraits are satisfying. @brianbowensmith @kellyrobitaille ⭐️ @karayoshimotobua #sundaynight. 🌙
This woman is the strongest, most lovingly ruthless supporter of those she admires. One of my longest adult friendships. Ride or die birthday girl. Cheers @kristasmith I love you forever. 🎂. #kristasmith #presentcompanywithkristasmith
I had perfected the side eye long ago. And I am with this beautiful actress. #scarlettjohansson l#famousfriendfriday #fbf
The kid can do things I never could. #coolkid #cherrytomato #chokinghazard #sideeye
Shooting with my friend @brianbowensmith gave me a little bit of myself again. So easy. So at home. This shot sings to me. Holding it in. Together. While still telling you I am here. We are here. Thank you all for the love. I could not be where I am without you. I am trying. I am doing. Slowly. @karayoshimotobua @kellyrobitaille @thetexastroya @bonnyrburke my team. Of 🖤. #brianbowensmith strikes again.
I was the first celebrity he shot. I love his work. I love that I can stand bald and 30 pounds heavier today than that first shoot almost 20 years ago. I love that he can still see the intensity in my eyes with the first click. He makes me feel like I can be. And he makes it look so damn strong. @brianbowensmith I love you. ⭐️ @kellyrobitaille #finisher extraordinaire 🌟#brianbowensmith The new #master. A long time now. Thank you for capturing this. Honored. #human #portrait. And @karayoshimotobua , brilliant makeup artist , my sister of sorts. With grace and vision. Over 20 years strong with me 💋
I have been going through old pictures. Forgotten until now, crammed in various boxes. Bent images. Dusty and scratched. I keep coming back to this one. My friend, sorting too, declared this was a good picture. I am in Vancouver. At the sea wall. Many years ago. While filming #aguything. Jason schwartzman took this photo of me embracing life. I was in love. #memories on a Saturday night 17 years later.
#Polaroid days. Back in the @rrichnyc basement hangout at Marc Jacobs store. Here we have the very stunning #frankierayder and #selmablair . @garrennewyork gave me a chic haircut. We had lunch at balthazaar after this snap was taken. It was fashion week and I was headed to the Proenza Schouler show. Some people thought I looked like Dora the Explorer. I can deal with that. #bowlcut #tbts #dorothyhamill
I love candles. My son says nobody loves them more than I do. The light. The ritual. The fragrance. So when his dad brought me this new creation by @backhousefragrances , I was a happy mom. @jasonbleick , he of excellent taste, designed the packaging. Clean. Allowing the candle to be what we make it. On this chilly for California morning, I light a fire , burn the candle. Ojai. Summer. Evening. I will sit and write with this as company. Thank you. This is a good one. Well done. #backhousefragrances #memorymaking #margaret #californiamade
I am finding my way to you. My perfect horse. #mrnibbles. @cellardoorequestrian 💋
Had a great morning at the launch of @hm and celebrating 50 years of @sesamestreet They teamed up To benefit the #yellowfeatherfund, which champions educational funds for children in need. It’s kind of a big deal for me to stand along with #cookiemonster and #Elmo , beloved characters from my own youth as well as my son’s. And this man, @yesornoah who has been so kind, loving and uplifting to me for so many years. Since he was a boy, really. Thank you. #sesamestreet #h&m. Which one of these is not like the others? 😂. (Me. ) #nohairtospare 😂. @rachelgoodwinmakeup 💋
I haven’t ridden my horse in over a year. He came to visit me last Halloween. In my front yard. It was my most uplifting houseguest. I will go see him tomorrow. I have been doing a nutritious cleanse all week from @pressbrothers to feel strong enough for tomorrow. I am so looking forward to this reunion. I will keep you posted. Have a Good Friday night or Saturday morning. Wherever you are. #fbf #mrnibbles @cellardoorequestrian thank you always for this memory.
A couple of weeks ago, I received a photograph. From @lee_jeffries 📷. Arthur and I unwrapped this piece of art and stared, transfixed. The glow from the horizon felt so great. The idea of my horse so present within the frame. Arthur spoke. It moved him to say to my friend, with us ... “this picture is where my mom is now”. It is up next to my bed. Thank you so much for this miracle of a guidepost. #leejeffries #darkestbeforethedawn 🖤.
I read three books and wandered around the house today. Not nagged by ambition yet this weekend. Quite pleasant. I do hope your time was, as well. 📷 @arttavee #thombrowneny
Spent the morning with BE @the_alinker_world and it fed my soul. This walking bike has taught me about myself and the needs of so many people who are being challenged within the confines of our ( not as accessible as we would need ) communities. This #alinker gives so much. And gives so much back. #bealink ( center ) brought this particular bike to me in Chicago when I had mobility issues within such a great walking city. It allowed me to have a joyous time with family, friends and keep my brain activated as I prepared and recovered from an intense and badly wanted medical procedure. ( #hsct ) I still use my alinker I already have and the time came when we could pass on my Sunny. You @joseph kibler are a force. Welcome to the family. 💛. #activateyourbrain #radicalgenerosity. Please check out @the_alinker_world , and if you feel inclined, there are active campaigns going for new bikes for people in need. This changed my life. Can we help change so many others lives by seeing them? 💛💛
All I am. #fbf. Goodnight friends. Thank you for being here for us.
Table dreams come true. #tbt #vanityfairoscarparty #selma #ashleesimpsonross #evanross #dianaross #traceeellisross Spectacular family. In all ways. 💋
Thank you @wondertentparties for turning Monday into fun day! ⭐️. Arthur loves camping, so with this 5🌟 glamping, we are doing a sleep in tonight. He was so thrilled to pick his tent and see the stuffed fire and lights and mattresses and sleeping bags all set up and ready. I was happy to know he could marvel at something still! He gets pip in bed with him and we will tell scary stories and he even pointed out there are sleep masks and toothpaste etc. I am looking forward to this special night with Arthur. They even set it up. And they take it down while he is at school tomorrow. We are excited,needless to say. Thank you @sarahmgellar for finding this treat for us. Now we have to find the s’mores ⛺️. #wondertentparties #livinghisbestlife
The end of the long haired days. We love you @mrchrismcmillan 🖤🖤 #momphotobomb 😆
Heads up. Oh #alexkatz you are the artist I admired most since I was little. A friend from childhood introduced me to one of your paintings. her parents were collectors. Of course it was larger than life. As you do. I wanted it. I wanted everything you painted. Paired down to the most essential heart jump of face and color. Water. Shape. My son thought I was Ada for years. My son says I didn’t correct him. I have since. And now I wear your art on my bathing suit. The collaboration you did with @hm a few years back. And again my son asks if it is me. Of course not. But he knows I like it. Because I like everything you do. Thank you @arttavee for this shot in time. #women. #faceit
Do our children really know how much we adore them? They couldn’t, I imagine. The weight of it would crush them. When I tell my son I love him, he answers... I know. That’s enough. No need to know how much. He has his whole world ahead of him. But I couldn’t love you more, child. Godspeed, my son. And may you always be surrounded by the Golden thread of your heart. 💛 #arthursaintbleick
Thank you @looploft for making my day. (Clutching my pearls ) #baldbarbie #fashionweek in the valley.
Into the sun . Aka #peachfuzz 🐣
My friend told me Peter Lindbergh has died. Remarkable man and photographer. He is loved . So adored. I feel a pain with the loss of this giant and my thoughts are with his family. #peterlindbergh. Fly with the angels.
I have lived lifetimes. Different lives altogether. Almost unrecognizable to me. I grew older. I saw it happen. The receding. Of another way. And in the fog, where I sit back with the rocks, watching... it is clear. Fade on. #labordayweekend 🦉 #thankyou #age
The Boy of Summer. #arthursaintbleick 🌟
Arthur is 8. He threw a 7 into the air and we said goodbye together. Official goodbye to 7 ! I was gone for the real day. @kidarthursaint #summer2019. #schoolnight. #california. Sound asleep now. 💦 #kidarthursaint #arthursaintbleick
The beginning of my journey to healing. #throwbackthursday. Started physical therapy today. Long road to getting where I want to be. #dreambig
As a mom, whether strong or not so strong, I hope I can be with this child as he needs me or wants me. This is the best it gets for me. I don’t begrudge him going off to school and growing up. I welcome the days as we are here now. The days seem in the correct order of things. Right now, I save the light I have to laugh with this one. To feel the whole day and night. But when I recover, when the bone marrow makes the amount this body needs when I rebalance my body and Re learn, I will be more present with all those I cherish. But now I watch as Arthur does a full flip in the pool and widen my bleak eyes in shock. When did he get so brave. It was imperceptible. I missed the shift and then he just went and did it even as I was starting to say “that may not be safe”. So I cheered his victory. His full on confidence. And it was from a great height. I will get him in gymnastics and pray for his safety. I never had that bold side on the edge of pools. Blood and stitches were what I saw. So we aren’t just the same. Of course. And thanks for that. I imagined I would be in Paris at this age, alone and walking with a book. Stopping in the Tuileries and watching. But here I am. I still can’t grasp my good fortune. Perhaps Paris and Rome and that amazing hotel on @fogoislandinn will wait for me. For us. I love you Arthur.
Second grade has begun for the kid. An 8 year old pre teen! I remember feeling nostalgic for first grade when I entered mrs. Herman’s second grade. Mrs Weisman was so strong and loving. I had so many wonderful teachers in my life. I am so pleased he was enamored of his teachers today. Makes all the difference. Thank you to all the teachers, so many thanks.
Scene stealer . #pippa. At least I have this #thombrowne knit and this photo by @creativerehabnyc This will make me smile til the end of time. #happydog #happyme
