fell in love with a boy, and married him

yesterday was my five year anniversary.  its a sentence i never imagined i'd be saying.  for one, i was never that girl who was overly concerned with getting married.  it wasn't on my list of things to accomplish unlike many gals and guys i know and hear about.  plus, everything happened so fast, i can barely believe it happened.  met one day in april...eloped in a foreign country in july.  i now know it sounds like the tales of a flaky or impulsive celebrity it-girl (which i am far from).  but what i've found is that my marriage is actually the most sound and stable decision i've made thus far.  it (and he) has helped me mature tremedously.  finally, its not all about me all the time.  love him and us...happy anniversary, my sweet.  xoxoxo

r.i.p amy- tears dry on their own

oh my god!  moments ago i just read the devastating news about amy winehouse's passing.  i am so stunned.  it seems like a week ago, i was reading some stupid article predicting her death like so many of our talented artists at the young age of 27.  i was really annoyed by their insensitivity and arrogance...and now this.  this saddens me so much because i was rooting for this girl.  her music has been such a treasure for me and i was desperately awaiting new material.  i particularly appreciated that she did things on her own terms.  i really don't know what else to say right now.  what a tremendous loss!  more info here   :(

black n white/ the hiatus

hola lovelies!  hope your summer is going well.  i don't know about where you are but here in the city there's plenty to do: movies in the park, summer concerts, bbqs, picnics ect.  make sure you take advantage of whatevers happening (in my al roker voice) in your neck of the woods.  passionista place should be back in full swing by the first week of august.  in the meantime, i thought i would give you some much needed black and white photos of some beauties such as tika, danielle (a la antm alum), naomi campbell (no intro needed) and natasha ndlovu.  there should be a few more posts coming your way this week so don't fret.  once again, have a great summer.   besos jenna pearle*
