just like broccoli

When I was little my favorite vegetable was broccoli. Yes, I'm serious.
My vest was thrifted.

I liked when my mom cooked it in quiche,
 or broccoli chicken casserole.

I would also eat broccoli cooked
as a side vegetable.

My purse was thrifted.

My dad would put lemon juice on his broccoli.

My brother is the opposite of me.
He doesn't like vegetables.

Now I like to eat broccoli with rice,
on pizza, in pasta, or with rice wine vinegar.

Journal my friend made, and gave me for Christmas

I have never liked broccoli raw.

I think of an airplane flight when I was sitting next to a woman from Texas,
 but she no longer lived there.

My art journal page from February 26, 2013

She told me she knew she was home when she looked out the airplane window and saw that the trees looked like broccoli.

Now I associate broccoli trees with Texas.
That's always stayed with me. Then I thought about when I felt like I was home.
When I looked out the airplane window and saw mountains.


  1. My dear Teddi, I love green color, as you saw from my latest post ! It suits you so much too, love your sweater ! I always loved broccoli, as well ;) as well as spinach and other veggies ! My hubby doesn't like veggies and I get annoyed at that, haha

  2. I can understand not liking the raw broccoli. A lot of produce needs something to give it taste.

  3. I'm not that into green but I am loving it on you! Makes your eyes stand out :) I love your vest, you seem to find some really cute stuff!

    I love vegetables but I hate broccoli, now I will think of you whenever I see it! I hope I get to visit Texas one day and see the trees xx

  4. Now I'm craving beef and broccoli. I also want that Alice&Olivia look. They always have the cutest collections.

    P.S. You're gorgeous!

    May the force be with you.

  5. you know, the colours of your outfit are pretty amazing ;) the forest green, classic blue denim and brown leather make an awesome trio and I love it. I also loved your story about broccoli and those trees :)

  6. i love broccoli! roasted is my favorite, but i hate it raw. i love your friend's cute!

  7. You look great! I recognize that necklace ;). I loved broccoli when I was little too - I called it "mini trees." Still love it today!

  8. Green is such a good color on you and I love that necklace! So pretty. I loved broccoli as a kid too because I saw the birds eating it at the pet store and thought it was cool because they looked like little trees. Haha!
    Thanks for your sweet comment :) I really liked Oz it was cool to see the story from a different perspective and learn how Oz came to be.

  9. Amazing color combination in your outfit! Love green color too:-)Welcome to my blog. Hope you like it and want to follow each other. Let me know, I will follow right back.

  10. Such a cute post. Love the Chanel pictures and your journal art. The kids look super cute. I love broccoli too (they remind me of bonsai) and I think you look lovely in green. :)

  11. Haha, how I enjoyes your post this time! As a child I don´t like it, but now I really enjoy broccoli raw by eating it with dates ( I know that sounds crazy, but its true ;)
    Love your journal page, it makes me smile ♥ Conny

  12. I love how each post of yours is a little window into your world. I'm not crazy about raw broccoli either which I find too bitter. But if you're feeling open-minded, try my Turner salad recipe (on the blog). The dressing works its magic on that vegetable and I haven't met anyone who doesn't like it. I am trying (and failing) to picture 'broccoli' trees! I love the idea of having that kind of landscape marker to follow.
